I can't believe what a value this place was. We stayed in the deluxe suite room 300 this weekend for $199 a night. I would have never thought I would say thats a deal, but the hotel is on the mountain. I know there are several resorts with accommodations at the base of the lifts like Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, etc; but this place is on the middle of the mountain. Get up, have breakfast walk 50 feet and get on the lift! I was on the lift at opening this morning after a night of fresh snow. Since everyone else has to take another gondola or lift to get to where we stayed I had two runs before I encountered other tracks or people.
Our room was one of the newer remodeled units and was the size of two average size hotel rooms. As of this writing, a regular hotel style room cost $99 mid week, and non holidays. This is one of the oldest resorts in Tahoe; I think our side of the hotel was constructed in the 30's. As such it has squeeky floors, and marginal sound proofing. But, you are on the mountain! The third floor has high ceilings, great views, decent furnishings and a cozy interior, not sure what else you need.
Our check in was awesome. Drove my car up to the indoor parking, the parking attendant initiated the check in progress. We were ushered from our car to the gondola, to check in, to our room by three or four different people seamlessly, and always addressed by name. Nice touch.
The gondola runs 24 hours a day, so you are free to come and go, but with our 9 month old daughter along for the ride we spent our entire time on the mountain. The restaurant had great food and staff. You can check the menu on their website.
The lift tickets can be purchased in the hotel. Since we had our daughter and no babysitter we purchased a family pass, not advertised, but my wife and I could switch it back and forth throughout the day.
I loved this place! For my new family is was a great solution to dealing with a baby.
