When you’re heading here for a visit and want to go it in style, a Lake Tahoe resort hotel is just the ticket. What makes it a resort hotel vs. just a hotel? Amenities, and lots of them. We’ll list some of them (note: some of them): in-room fireplaces and mini-bars, luxurious linens, high-end toiletries, kitchenettes, golf courses, indoor and outdoor pools, fine dining restaurants, hot springs, fitness centers, boat cruises, outdoor fire pits, children programs and babysitting, saunas and hot tubs, spas and massages, bikes and playgrounds, yoga classes, watersports equipment, movie theaters, shops, sleigh rides and sledding, hiking trails, horseback riding … we’re sure you’re getting the idea, and probably already making your own reservation at a Lake Tahoe resort hotel. This area has a generous amount of choices for vacationing at this level, and you might be happily surprised to discover that the price tag isn’t out of reach. Of course, reservations at these popular Lake Tahoe resort hotels are an absolute must during ski season and the summer, so plan ahead! But locals will tell you that some of the nicest times to visit these resorts is more in the off-season. You’ll still have plenty of fellow vacationers, but the high-seasons crowds will have abated, making it easier to access many of the amenities that you came for anyway!
