Harrah's Tahoe still the best!
My family just spent five days at Harrah's Tahoe and it couldn't have been nicer. Harrah's Tahoe has not changed much in the 25 years since I was last there, the rooms are incredibly huge and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpfull, all in all Harrah's Tahoe is still the best. With four of us staying in one room we found that having two bathrooms was an absolute blessing, my eight year old son really liked the fact that he could go to the bathroom, wacth TV and phone a friend all at the same time. You could not find a better vacation destination then Harrah's Tahoe!
Although I'm aware that Harrah's has many properties, I wasn't all that impressed with Harrah's and Bill's (next door to the main casino). I visited both on both my snowboard trips to Tahoe this winter. Extremely crowded, slot & video poker machines are not loose at all, food seemed kind of high dollar. Check out the Lakeside and the Horizon for a more laid-back scene, and much better jackpots.
Harrah's is Awesome
We stayed in a luxurious suite at Harrah's in May, 2004. We got a great deal on a corner suite on the 15th floor. The room was awsome, with suberb views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. We had a separate living area and two bathrooms, with four TVs total (one in each bathroom, the bedroom and living room)! No fighting over the remote! The rooms have been redone and are very nice. The Spa at Harrah's is less than a year old and is also great. You are accompanied by a personal attendant to make sure you enjoy all the spa has to offer. We also had an awesome dinner (best steak and lobster ever) at the Summit restaurant. Worth every penny. I highly recommend Harrahs if you are going to Tahoe.
Nice, but not Vegas
I agree with most of the others. The room is nice and spacious. But the best thing is the two bathrooms. We have traveled quite a bit and we've been upgraded to suites and have stayed in many 5 star hotels. However, I don't ever recall having 2 bathrooms in a standard room (except for suites). The buffets in Tahoe are very ordinary and not particularly good. We had dinner at Llewellyn's in Harvey's and that was very good with a beautiful view of the sun setting behind the mountain. We enjoy gambling and have been to Vegas, Biloxi, CT, Atlantic City, etc. However, Vegas is still the best. The view from our room at the Bellagio looking and listening to the fountains, albeit man-made, is still lovely. The food is great - they have the best buffets and so many celebrity chefs' restaurants. And the hotels are truly lovely with many amenities.
We added Tahoe on to a business trip to San Francisco. We rented a car in San Fran and drove to Tahoe. Although I routed it in mapquest, I didn't realize that we would really be that high up in the Sierra Nevadas. It was a white-knuckle ride going down that mountain. It is also difficult to breath in the high altitude. Glad I went, but won't go back.
Best in Stateline, Lake Tahoe
The previous review is helpful. I have booked two connected rooms, one with 2 double beds and the other room with 1 king size bed. The rooms are big, with nice seating area. The most attractive part is the two full bathrooms, with marble sink and T.V. in each bathroom. At the time of booking the hotel, I'm quite confused about the difference between the Harrahs and the Harveys. The Harrahs are more elegant and upscale, and of course more expensive than the Harveys. The public area, including the casino area is more well kept in the Harrahs.
Great rooms! Very big. Spacious sitting area. Best part ... there are two separate full size restrooms. Each has a TV. Good size closet. A door separates the closet and two restrooms from the room.
Harrahs lake tahoe
We just returned from tahoe on the 29th and had a great time. Harrahs was nice as always but, it was way to busy!! We knew it would be. It was very scenic there with all the new snow. With as busy as it was, we still had plenty of great service. What was very dissapointing was the low end results on all of there video poker machines. They need to get better pay schedules on video poker. It would make playing alot more fun and our trip more memorial. We found that Harveys had better machines. The Horizon was very dumpy looking and did not care for it at all. To us, Harrahs has the best atmosphere of all the resorts.
Overrated Dorm Room
A pathetic example of a casino. The staff was extremely inept in many ways. Our rooms were wrong when we arrived (they did give us one nice suite at a great rate to compensate), the waitress did not know there was more than one type of berry available in this world, and the housecleaning arrived before 8am. I was not awake that early, due to the extreme noise coming from the halls and surrounding rooms, which prevented me from sleeping the night before. I am a 25 yr old who likes to go out, gamble and have a good time; yet I was disgusted at the extreme noise and impersonal assembly-line approach of the staff. I have not seen such immaturity since my undergraduate dorm.
Best hotel in Lake Tahoe
The rooms are quite large and nicely decorated--all have 2 bathrooms--and almost all have lake views. The buffet is good and has excellent views of the lake. A classy experience--you won't be disappointed.
My husband and I had the opportunity to use one of the coupons sent to us, for a free night at Harrah's Lake Tahoe. As we were traveling through the area, we were only able to stay one night. Our room was wonderful!! What a treat for us--it was more than comfortable. We went to the Buffet on the 18th floor. The Hostess, Alicia, was very pleasant and professional. She showed us to a table with a view of the lake. The food, of course, as always at any Harrah's, was outragious! We enjoyed our dinner very much. We noticed that the couple at the next table had finished their dinner and left. We also noticed that the woman at that table had left her "cup of money" on the table. The man who came to bus noticed the cup and immediately left the table, went over to notify a supervisor. In the meantime the man who had been at the table returned to retrieve the cup. He thanked us for keeping an eye on it, and we told him he should thank the bus person. So, aside from the wonderful room, friendly, helpful staff, the one thing that impressed us was this man's action. By the way, this man's name tag----Jesus!!! We have decided to return to Harrah's Lake Tahoe in October, to celebrate my husband's birthday and our 25th wedding anniversary! Your the best!!

... I'm not gonna lie- I fell on my butt several times but mainly because I as too scared of going too fast and hitting other people on the slopes (I'm not too great at turning just yet!) I got to the bottom and of course... Went straight back up- 7 times!! Haha Paul didn't go again but he was happy to watch me and some of the other guys go back for more! We took a break for lunch and done much needed water. It's amazing how strenuous it was! Also how hot we got- ...
... BAR which was nice and busy and had $1 drinks! Crazy Crazy night was had there!
Next day a full day of snowboarding we where all really sore from yesterday but was still a really good day! Spent 5 hours boarding!
That night there was a Kareoke night at the Horzions Hotel and we played Beer Pong to!
Overall I will definitely keep up the boarding had so much fun in Lake Tahoe!
... We walked through Harrah's Casino (I lost $10 very quickly!) which was just two blocks from our hotel…and in Nevada! How interesting the State Line goes through Lake Tahoe!
We ate at Mc P’s Pub…right across from the Marriott Vacation Club. This was a great location because the view was the ski slopes and mountains!
That’s all for this day…more in Tahoe tomorrow!
