Stayed at The Grand Residence 4/12 to 4/18/2014. We reserved a one bedroom, two bath suite. My Wife and I brought our 13 year old daughter and 4 year old son on a spring break ski trip. Both kids slept comfortably on the day beds and having their own bathroom was really a plus keeping everything easy and organized. Kitchen and bathrooms were both very clean and housekeeping was on point as was the rest of the staff. Kudos to Kym at the front desk who was exceptional.
Pro's - Very clean property, tremendous staff, location is second to none if you are skiing. The kids ski school is outstanding and on the first floor of the building in front of the gondola. The property provides valet ski service as a mandatory courtesy. The location in Heavenly Village is ideal if you appreciate a vibrant atmosphere of live music, good food and entertainment options. The grocery store is phenomenal and right across the street. Casinos are a 100 yard walk. The hotel provides up to date movie rentals in the lobby in addition to an onsite cinema. We did not participate, but there was a steady schedule of activities provided by the hotel in conjunction with the Timberland Lodge. The Valet parking is $26 a day so we parked behind Harrahs casino at no charge. Great shops and eateries within walking distance.
Cons - Literally none. The only wish would be a washer/dryer in unit, but the complimentary laundry on each floor was almost as convenient the one time we needed it.
I am not one to buy a timeshare (or fractional ownership) but this could have changed that if we lived closer. Flew into Sacramento from Charlotte. Easy car rental and beautiful drive in on route 50. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in South Lake Tahoe, except maybe Timberland Lodge if the price was better as it seemed like an identical property in the same location. Upon arrival, request a specific view that you prefer (Mountain, Gondola, Street).
If you want to get it "booking right", this is the place to be for skiing Heavenly.
