Hotel Review: Hyatt Lake Tahoe

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

I recently stayed at the Hyatt Lake Tahoe, which is located in Incline Village, Nevada about 45 minutes from Reno. This is a Category 5 property which means free nights start at 20,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points.

As a Hyatt Diamond, I decided to use a suite night award to confirm into a one-bedroom suite at booking.

Bottom Line

Overall the Hyatt Lake Tahoe was a nice hotel to visit during the summer.

Well the main hotel is not right on the lake, it’s about a 5 minute walk to the lake and the Hyatt does have a beach area with chairs and umbrellas.

As a Hyatt Diamond, I was impressed with the size of the suite I was given using my upgrade, however parts of it were dated such as the bathroom, so perhaps they will update them in the near future.

The Club Lounge located on the 11th floor offered a decent selection of continental breakfast items and light appetizers in the evening, but it was pretty packed every time I used it.

Also to note the hotel does have a casino off from the lobby, so even though the guest rooms are non-smoking, the smoke does drift into the lobby, which you have to walk through to get to the hotel elevators.

Have you stayed at the Hyatt Lake Tahoe before? What are your thoughts on the property?

    Given how expensive the rooms are there for cash, I can’t imagine ever being able to use an upgrade. Typical prices for a regular room are in the $500 a day range when I’ve looked. And even the cash & points options I’ve found have been crazy. My only stays there have been on points. Had an amazing room regardless though, so can’t complain. Love love love the place.

    Hi Glenn- I was able to get a room at the Hyatt Lake Tahoe for about $120 a night in off season. Not a bad price for a trip to the lake and to use suite night upgrades. When are you looking for a room and what prices are showing?
