To avoid an 8+ hour drive from Death Valley to San Fran we broke the trip up with a couple of stop overs.
From Death Valley we drove to and stayed in a small town called Bishop. When we arrived we were very pleased to be able to use electricity once more and not have to use torches in our motel room.
The next day we drove to Lake Tahoe. As we ...
... I know is also stunning. I'm so glad I followed my friends' advice and came. Its snowing so I get to experience winter and that's cool too since (y'all are about to get real jealous..) I forget its winter every day and we have warn skirts and tank tops every day for the past month and a half!! :D lucky us!!! yay for cali.
California, for the record, IS all its cracked up to be. and so is lake Tahoe.
... First, whilst mum, Jessica and I were waiting for dad and Ted we went on Meadows, a nice smooth slope, which was a green run. When Ted and dad finally arrived, dad and I to go on Hot Wheels, an intermediate blue run, with much steeper hills than Meadows whilst mum, Ted and Jessica went on Meadows. As I went down Hot Wheels, I slipped down a steep part of the slope but really other than that I thought I did well for my first time. I had another go at ...
... down to the lakeshore again. The wind was strong and the water icy cold as we dipped out toes. Pretty though Lake Tahoe is, its resorts are haphazard and too commercial. With too many private homes the waterfront is almost ignored. Where were the boardwalk, the cafés and deck chairs?! We went to see a movie ('Prisoners' with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhall - 3/5)' crashed out, then had an enormous steak, washed down with a Francis Ford Coppola Pinot ...
It's our last day in San Fran, we wake up and pack our bags and get in the mustang for the first time since Friday. It's foggy today but still warm. We drive up Lombard street and down the crookedest street at 5 mph. We park up in a multi storey on the water front and make our way to pier 33 for our departure time at11.35 stopping on the way for a few souvenirs. On the dot at 11:35 the ferry heads off over the foggy bay to Alcatraz. It only take ten mins and we are ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Grand Residence Club Tahoe South Lake Tahoe
We stayed in a 2-bedroom, 2-bath suite and loved it. The suite was huge, with a very comfortable living room with fold-out couch, dining room, full kitchen with granite countertops and every appliance you could want, two good-sized bedrooms with queen beds, and two full bathrooms (one of which had a jacuzzi tub). Paid $270 a night. We stayed in the room with my inlaws and our baby daughter, and the five of us fit very comfortably. It was an ideal set-up with a baby, because we had plenty of floor space for her to play, and at night and naptime we could put her in the bedroom to sleep while we ate, watched TV, etc.
Great, comfortable studio suite
We've stayed at the Grand Residence in both winter and spring, and have been very happy each time. Love the full kitchen in the studio suite - makes for a wonderful lazy breakfast, and apres ski too! I would recommend the annex rooms (4400, 3400 numbers) as they are very quiet and convenient to the gondola, supermarket, and restaurants. I would also recommend at least a studio suite, as just a room can be small and no kitchen!
Me and my family loved it. Staff, Bellman, Valet's to Front Desk were very courteous and friendly. I had a one bedroom suite w/ living room and kitchen that overlooked the Porte Cochere and the mountain views were awesome. With Fraley's just across the street, we sure made use of that oven and Microwave with TV dinners and other simple pre made dinners. We stocked our refrigerators with fresh fruit, juices and milk (much cheaper) for breakfast Our balcony door could close, but we could not lock it. The engineers came up immediately and fixed the problem.
Awful rooms and staff
The staff is rude, and the room was cramped. I explained that the room wasn't adequate and thatI would pay for an upgrade since they had other rooms avaiable. At that point I was told, they couldn't change the reservtion. Bad Stuff! Stay at the Tarvel Lodge, you'll probably be treated better.
We had a request for a room with view and had an obstructed view#2on night 3 we returned from dinner and a shopping bag filled with 12 other bags was missing. Called security immed. They never came up and talked to us,all over telephone. Finally I wanted to meet with a Mr. O"malley and gave him list. Said AIG,insurance Co. would contacat us at home.
We were so excited to visit the resort for our anniversary this year. But the excitement ended the instant we drove up to the resort. They are in the middle of some HUGE construction on a new wing (or something). When we arrived, we asked the front desk if our room was away from the construction. Turned out it wasn't. So, we asked for another room and ended up with a "lake view" room that actually overlooked the main street (if you stood on your tip-toes you could just see the lake). The timeshare salespeople would not leave us alone, even calling our room to see if we could come down for breakfast. When we checked out, there were a few strange charges - when we asked what they were, we were told they were taxes. When we questioned them a bit more, the front desk clerk said they must be other charges we incurred and simply ran the credit card on file. This "resort" tries too hard to be a big resort in an area where most things are smaller. The rooms weren't even that nice.
I was extremely pleased with our stay at the Marriott Grand REsidence.
Everything is brand new and our suite was spacious and well-decorated.
It was like staying in a model home and yet very comfortable. Location is superb within blocks of the casinos and a few feet from the Heavenly gondola! Our only complaint was that every morning it sounded like furniture was being moved above us and would wake us up although the concierge denied any reason for it. Overall we highly recommend it.
We stayed at Marriot Grand Residence hotel on August, 2003.The hotel is beautifully furnished and centrally located near the casinos and the Heavenly Valley, so it's a good choise for casino visitors and skiers.Our room was a standard, king bed room and the price was 180 USD / night. Our balcony faced straight to the Highway 50, so the traffic noise was quite loud. My husband had to use earplugs to be able to sleep at nights.We think, that the room was overpriced because of the following reasons:- The room was very small- There is no refridgerator nor mini-bar in the standard room- No coffee maker- No breakfast possibility in the hotelMaybe the bigger and more expensive rooms are spacious and noiseless, but we don't recommend the standard room, because it's not so well-equipped compared to the price.
Ski Lovers Paradise
If you love to ski, this is the place. With the Heavenly Valley Gondola just footsteps from your room, you can be on the slopes in no time. Park the car and forget about it!
In addition to the easy ski access, the South Tahoe casinos are one block south of this ideal south shore location.
Our room had a fully stocked kitchen...it was nice waking up and making breakfast instead of having to go out for it. The staff was helpful and personable. On the down side, it was more expensive than some of the smaller lodges, but since our room was more like a condo (sleeps 8), it was worth it. Check it out!
