Tahoe hotel gets $5 million makeover
September 20, 2013
Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel is investing $5 million in property renovations and upgrading all 400 rooms in the nine-story all-suite hotel. The work is taking place in phases with completion planned for the winter season.
The upgrades have already started and rooms on the sixth floor and above are outfitted with the new 42-inch flat screen televisions in the suites' living areas and 37-inch flat screens in the bedrooms. Bathrooms in the suites are getting new bath surrounds with curved shower curtains and top shelf Aromatherapy bath products. Granite countertops provide a fresh look to the room's furniture, and new ottomans, end tables, dining tables and chairs, new headboards, nightstands, wet bars, vanities, and dressers are being added.
Guests will be able to sink into Serta perfect sleeper mattresses, super topper mattress pads, and 300 thread count sheets. New carpet and décor is also part of the renovation process.
"It's all about the guest. We are about building the best experience for their Tahoe vacation," said Bill Cottrill, the resort's director of sales and marketing. "The owners are committed to continual improvements."
The hotel's four premium balcony suites, scheduled for completion in November, will reopen with dual-sided fireplaces and added alpine mountain style. This matches the resort's change of direction from national corporate chain to independent in April of this year.
The resort management and staff launched their "My Tahoe" campaign this summer focusing on connecting guests with authentic Tahoe experiences and offering personal insights into seeing Tahoe like a local. The alpine theme will extend to the resort's atrium as property renovations continue with the addition of a large dual-sided fireplace and gathering area.
"It will be the perfect place for our guests to gather, reflect on their day and just enjoy Tahoe," Cottrill said.
Located in South Lake Tahoe on the state line, the nine-story all-suite hotel has 400 rooms, 10,000 square-feet of meeting space, and restaurant and bar.
