 When the hotel broke ground in 1989 it was a cornerstone project for South Lake Tahoe’s redevelopment. The $65 million hotel gained attention for opening five months ahead of schedule and for being the first California hotel at Lake Tahoe with banquet and meeting facilities. In 2002, it made Conde Nast Traveler’s top 50 list for ski (hotel) resorts in North America.  

Originally, under the flag of Embassy Suites Lake Tahoe – Hotel & Ski Resort, the hotel management team lead the way for sustainability at Lake Tahoe by investing in environmental improvements to become the first hotel in the area to offer  “zero waste” events reducing the hotel’s waste production, gas consumption, and electrical use. In 2013, the hotel went independent transforming to Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel and investing $5 million in room and property renovations. In 2019, Forbes named it one of “The Best Family Resorts in Lake Tahoe.”
