    Sitting on the edge of Lake Tahoe's northern shore in Incline Village, Nevada, the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort, Spa and Casino remains a guest favorite because it offers a generous sampling of Tahoe pastimes like gambling, boating and swimming.

During the cooler months, visitors can enjoy the lake views from the cozy outdoor fire pits after a day of skiing. Inside the warmth of your own quarters, you'll find an iPod docking station, a minibar and a  flat-screen TV. But despite all of the on-site amenities, which are made possible by a $36 resort fee, guests claim that the best part about staying at this Hyatt property is the warm, friendly staff. What's more, members of Hyatt's rewards program can accrue and redeem points here.

    Grand Residences by Marriott, Lake Tahoe

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1015 reviewsTripAdvisor (1015)

    Located in South Lake Tahoe (on the California side of the lake), the spacious lodgings at the Grand Residences by Marriott are ideal for vacationing families. Skiers appreciate that the gondola up to the Heavenly Ski Resort is just steps from the front door. When you need to thaw, take a dip in the hotel's heated pool or hot tub. Because this is a Grand Residence, the rooms are owned by Marriott Vacation Club members, meaning that the amenities resemble those of timeshares more than hotel rooms; you'll get a fully equipped kitchen and dining area. Even though the resort does not charge for Wi-Fi usage, the $29 per day valet parking fee galled many recent guests. This property is a Marriott Bonvoy category 8, meaning that members need at least 35,000 points to book a free night.
