Since it was a last minute trip to expensive Lake Tahoe for the 4th of July weekend, I wasn't going to nit-pick. However, I figure the more reviews the better and this is only my opinion. So let me start with the positives:
Liked: Friendly valets; Nice lobby w/ ample seating/lounges, bar, general store and restaurant (open for breakfast only); Free Wi-fi throughout the resort; clean room w/ 2 flat screen HD TVs; easiest reveal of a hide-a-bed ever! (from someone who usually gets the sofa sleeper on family vacations); ample closet-space; nice dining nook; plenty of towels; soap dispensers...
Didn't Like so much: On-site parking is valet parking only (while free you know tip is expected); no windows in entry room with sofa sleeper (needs at least ceiling fan for circulation-though you can turn on a system blowing air that I couldn't quite tell was cool or warm); if you decide to keep the privacy shutters closed so as to not have to keep opening and closing them each time someone needed to take a shower as we did, the entry room is basically a window-less dungeon; you have to walk through the "bathroom" to get from entry room with sofa-sleeper to the master bedroom (more on that later); toilet is in a small "closet" without a fan-if you're claustrophobic forget about it!
Hated: Hot tub in the middle of the room also doubles as the shower. I mean, I get the appeal of hot tubs, but for it to double as the shower too was very inconvenient. First, you have to step down a long way into the tub to shower and for seniors it seems very scary. Stepping out, even more so. Second, the shutters along with a shower curtain are supposed to provide privacy for those in the shower. It would be nice however if the shutters facing the rooms actually closed all the way as the ones in room 435 did not. I basically had to stay in one spot in the shower and the people in the room with the sofa sleeper had to stay to one side for maximum privacy. People at the dining nook immediately adjacent to the shutter would probably get an eyeful if they weren't careful. It was the weirdest part to say the least. Third, because that area is for all intent and purposes the bathroom, the members of your party are sequestered to either the master bedroom or the entry room with the sofa sleeper while it is occupied.
For a couple, this layout would be great. For a family or friends, they better be really, really close (and yes I'm aware the one bedroom sleeps 4 only).
