Disclosure: This stay was provided free of charge, but all opinions are my own.
Located only a stone’s throw from Heavenly Village and the casinos of South Lake Tahoe, The Landing Tahoe Resort & Spa feels like it is worlds away. This luxury hotel, situated right next to the lake is full of amenities, a fantastic restaurant and is a great home away from home in South Lake Tahoe. I got a chance to spend a few days there with my wife, and I am sure we will be back, here is all the information.

Heading north on Highway 50 through South Lake Tahoe, you will want to turn left on Park Ave, then right on Pine Blvd. From there you will turn left on Stateline Ave, and you will see the resort on the left hand side.
Upon arriving at the hotel, you will be helped to check in by the valets and given a glass of champagne to drink while getting checked into the hotel. After getting keys, one of the employees took our car near the room, and another gave us a tour of the small property, helped us get our bags, and took them up to the room for us. This whole experience was fantastic and quickly made me more excited about the hotel.
Our room was in a great location on the second floor with a view of Lake Tahoe right from the balcony.
The king size bed was comfortable, and the room had a light switch operated fireplace for when it got cold.
The bathroom was immaculate with stone floors, heated so they were never cold, and a beautiful granite shower. Even the toilet seat had a light and could be heated with the press of a button. These things were fun but didn’t matter as much for us in the summer. In the winter, I am sure they are a huge win though.
Since we were celebrating, they even included a bottle of champagne in the mini fridge in the room for us. This was above and beyond what we expected and was a lot of fun to receive. The property also features a workout room and a restaurant. We took advantage of the restaurant multiple times but didn’t visit the workout room, priorities right?
One of the things we did loved was the bikes you could check out for free when you stayed at the hotel. We took them up to the Heavenly Village, a short 5-minute bike ride away, and then locked them up and explored the shops and eateries.
Across from the hotel is a private beach, and being a guest gives you access to it. It is a great spot to hang out during the day, and there is even a playground for children. We also watched the sunset here, but it was honestly hard to beat the view from our room for sunset.
The restaurant on the property, Jimmy’s is one of the best hotel restaurants I have been to. Two of the dishes, in particular, were enough for my wife and me to go back a second night, the rack of lamb and the Kataifi wrapped feta. You can read all about the restaurant in this post since it was good enough to warrant its own post.
As you can no doubt see, The Landing Resort in Lake Tahoe is a great place to stay in the city. I can’t wait to return, and if you go, be sure to check out my guide on what to do in South Lake Tahoe here and the video I made below.
