Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa And Casino
Travel Blogs from Incline Village
Our last day at Yosemite Valley after our summer camp style breakfast in the dining room we went for a walk to the bridge which has a great view of the falls except there is no water at this time. We see more squirrels and lots of people bird watching and on our walk back we see a mule deer and 3 fawns who came really close.
Just a few notes before signing off. I'm nearly home.
Most of the campsites located near a freeway are often also located near train tracks. Depending on how sound travels, I hear freeway traffic and/or train whistles at night.
I had to laugh the night I stayed at the Best Western when, snuggled into a comfy king size bed with six marshmallow-soft pillows,I heard a train ...
This was our shortest travel day yet. Only took a little over an hour to get from Reno to the quaint little town of Gardnerville. Looking forward to 2 days hanging with Harry's Godmom Ginny, her husband Shane, kids Alicia, Max, Sarah, my namesake Tina & Jessie. My cousin Ginny is one of the most creative teachers and moms I know! During summer break the weekdays have a theme and we were lucky enough to be here ...

We've got our new mountain bikes, our inflatable kayak, all the camping supplies, and Glen even brought his hocky bag so he can play some hocky in Sun Valley. Should be a great trip!
Up until now our longers camping trip this summer has been ...

Our next stop was a casino because Susan wants to show me this really cool huge game. It is wheel of fortune. We play pennies! I don't like to throw money away.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa And Casino Incline Village
Looking for a splurge on the quieter end of Lake Tahoe? This is your place. It is much nicer than some of the other resort/casino accommodations on the North Shore. Rooms could use updating and the food could be a bit better for the price. Other than that, it's great.
Highly Suggest: Grab a Sierra Nevada Ale and a seat next to the fire pit as you enjoy the view from the Lone Eagle restaurant, which is right on the lake.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa And Casino Incline Village
I can't say anything bad about this Hyatt. Their wedding coordinator arranged my wedding in 24 hours. She gave us a beautiful wedding that seemed like it was months in planning. She was always pleasant and professional.
The hotel service was excellent from the valets to the front desk staff to room service. While there was nothing exceptional about our room, it was definitely clean and comfortable. We weren't lacking anything we needed there.
I also thought the casino was well done. I generally hate casinos (too much smoke). The casino at the Hyatt was tastefully done... hidden from view enough that if you weren't interested, you'd never know it was there. And although people were smoking, I didn't notice the smoke collecting in there.
We stayed at Embassy Suites in South Lake Tahoe last year, and were unimpressed. For less money at the Hyatt, we still got a large room, and got many more services. We will always remember our stay at the Hyatt fondly, and will definitely be back.
Very nice hotel with extremely pleasant staff. Food is overpriced but very good. Renovations were happening but I thought they did a good job of working around it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone with a thick wallet.
Worst hotel ever
Stay away from this hotel at all costs. Reno and South Lake Tahoe are a lot better and cost a lot less. The big hotels also have lots for the kids to do. Where the Hyatt has a very little for kids to do. The pool was being built and the beach sucked (lake was very cold). Also they were taring the roof and the enternce to the Hotel was still being built. So you had to go in a side door which may or maynot be opened depending on what part of the roof is being worked on. Also you can not see the lake form the hotel unless you are on the top floor (few rooms if any face the lake). Also to get to the lake you have to walk a long ways and cross a major street (not safe if you have little kids).
We stayed at the HYATT OCT.20-24, 2003. They were still renovating the hotel and they seemed to have alot more to go. before their NOV.1ST deadline. Our room was upgraded, I guess we told them it was our anniversary. We were on the 12TH floor( WHERE THEY WERE TARRING THE ROOF)! We told the front desk about the smell. They said we could move to the 5TH FLOOR but we would lose our view of the lake and mountains.
We said we would stick it out. It smelled all week. We were gone from 9-4 each day so that helped. My advice - DON'T STAY ON THE 12TH FLOOR WHILE THEY ARE TARRING. IT STINKS!! Breakfast in the SIERRA CAFE was good, BUT THE DINNER WAS NOT WORTH THE MONEY. When we go back to TAHOE, WE WILL NOT STAY HERE. This is a very AVERGAGE HOTEL AND NOT WORTH THE BIGGER BUCKS, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE RENOVATING. THE BEST PART ABOUT OUR TRIP WAS THE LAKE - IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
Beautiful surroundings, increasingly beautiful hotel
My wife and I first stayed at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe over 25 years ago and have returned several times since. The lake and surrounding mountains are the draw to any hotel in the area, but this is easily the best hotel on the North Shore and possibly the best around the entire lake shore. They began a renovation about a year ago and those areas that have been finished are much improved. We stayed in a large room with King size bed in which no one had ever stayed, so it was immaculate and with pristine bathroom, furniture and bedding. The staff were 100% focused on service from check-in to check-out with not a single mishap except a faulty steam iron that was never fixed in spite of a call to housekeeping. That was a tiny negative, though. The three different hotel restaurants were all excellent with differing menus, overall excellent quality and selection and pretty good value.
We aren't gamblers, so the casino was fine, although we're nickel slot machine types so don't take our word for it. A wonderful spot for a long weekend getaway.
Even though the resort is under construction (which didn't bother us at all), it is still so beautiful. The interior was amazing with river rock all over and exposed timber beams. Really has the feel of the area dialed in. The rooms are great! I loved the down comforters! The beachfront was just getting into full swing - with kayak rentals, jet skis, and floaties! Lone Eagle Grille is one of the most wonderful restaurants I have ever eaten at with the best view by far. There's even firepits outside that you can hang out by for when the sun goes down. I can't wait to return after the renovation!
Best resort in all of Tahoe!
From their service to their location, the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe is one of the finest resorts in the West. My family loved the spa treatments, their private beach, their restaurants, their beautiful casino....all were spectacular! The resort has been completely redone and exudes taste and understated elegance. They are expanding the resort to include a new full service spa, new rooms, and a pool you can swim in and out of the building year round! This is suppose to be done in September, so we have rebooked for then, but will probably go back for a week this summer. My family and I loved this place so much we thought of moving to Tahoe, but we reconsidered because we could never reproduce a home that can match the harmony between man and nature that the Hyatt has so elegantly done. Of course being a Hyatt, it can be a bit pricey, but sooooooo worth it. If you are ever going to Tahoe, look no further and indulge yourself at this place!
This is a Hyatt?
Mold on the ceiling tiles. Small rooms for the price. Dirty carpets with no padding. Didn't like it. Won't go there again even if they finish renovating it. I've seen closets that are bigger.
Work in progress....
The Hyatt Tahoe is in the middle of major renovations. They have completed the lobby/casino - and if that is any indication the final product should be fabulous.
Rooms: The room was very comfortable - not huge, but not small either. Same with the bathroom, etc. The bed was very comfortable.
Restaurants: We really like the Sierra Cafe - good food, and reasonable. Their signature restaurant the 'Lone Eagle Grill' was good - but pricey.
Spa: The spa is temporarily spread out between two floors. The equipment is new, and included in the $10 'resort fee'.
Hotel General: The staff was very nice - and very aware to set expectatiosn around the renovations, etc. Valet parking is included in the $10 resort fee, which we liked, as is access to the business center (fax, internet, etc.).
Location: This was the first time we stayed at north shore, and we were concerned that we would spend all our time driving to the the south shore. As it turns out, the drive wasn't that bad (about 30 minutes), and Incline Village is only 35 minutes from the Reno airport.
Casino: The casino is small, but full service. All the table games you would expect, slots, sports book, etc. No live poker. The staff was very nice - and the room itself wonderful.
The picture you see on the hyatt website is a little misleading. The view from water shows the restaurant - not the hotel. The hotel is set back across the road. It got us off on the wrong foot a little.
We liked this property so much that we bought into the Hyatt Vacation Club timeshare that is adjacent to the hotel.
When the renovations are complete, this Hyatt is going to be awesome.
Would go back
cottages on the lake are great. the lake is gorgeous. the casino small but fun. terrific place away from the south lake taho crowds. prices but worth it.
