We were a bit thrown out on arrival to South Lake Tahoe, as it was a lot more touristy than we expected. However, the hotel was a bit of a safe haven in the middle of the town. It is stylish, new and hip, without loosing on comfort. The beach is a few minutes walk and there are nice places to eat nearby. We only stayed one night and had a good time. The mattress was too soft for us, but in spite of that I would say it's probably one of the best options in town from what I could see!
