The keycard for a room at the new Hard Rock Hotel in South Lake Tahoe
South Lake Tahoe's newest hotel and casino is the Hard Rock Hotel, located adjacent to its casino counterparts, which include Harrah's, Harvey's, and the Montbleu. The Hard Rock, which opened about a month ago, is part of a rejuvination going on in South Lake, one that hopes to replace old, run-down inns with a rush of new blood that involves local, environmentally friendly properties (Hotel 968), five-star lodging (The Landing), and destination resorts (Tahoe Beach Resort).
About a year ago, we took an in-depth look at The Landing when it opened, and also highlighted some hotels that exemplified this transition in Tahoe. Now, let's step through the doors of the new Hard Rock and see what it has to offer. Take a moment to browse the gallery, and then see below for more detailed descriptions of the property.

South Lake Tahoe's newest hotel, the Landing.
Despite eight ski resorts in the greater Tahoe area, winter is actually the region's offseason and, this year, it has seen an impressive amount of renovation take place in anticipation of the busy summer season. Below, we take a look at some South Lake properties that have been brushed up of late:
It's the newest hotel in Tahoe having just opened at the end of last year, and it's also South Lake's most high-end boutique resort. We told you about the bathrooms that sport the manliest hotel amenity ever, and that novelty is just a tiny aspect of what makes the lake-front Landing impressive. Its in-house, wood-fire Greek restaurant, Jimmy's, is perhaps the best dining in town (we recommend going with the tapas), and its position on the lake results in killer views. A full-service spa, free wine tasting, valet parking, and in-room fireplaces round out the perks. Rates start at $199/night.
Before we get into breaking down the newly renovated hotels of South Lake Tahoe, we'd like to tackle an often-asked question about the region: What's the difference between the hotels on the South and North sides?
In general, North Lake Tahoe forgoes nightlife for tranquility, and as a result, most properties are spread out, self-sustaining and more full-service oriented than many found on the South side, where entertainment options are abundant and hotels are bunched together in town. Expect to find a lot of lesser quality and budget hotels sprinkled in amongst the best kept ones in South Lake (which you will learn about this week).

Despite eight ski resorts in the greater Tahoe area, winter is actually the region's offseason since the campgrounds and harbors are closed, awaiting the spring sun. This year, the area has seen an impressive amount of renovation take place in anticipation of the busy summer season, especially in South Lake Tahoe. We'll be dishing on those details in a separate, in-depth piece but first, let's talk about the area's newest hotel--The Landing.
The hotel in opened in December and is already one of the most luxurious properties in South Lake Tahoe. We'll get to the specifics about the property next week, but as a quick teaser--and to highlight that today's upscale properties aren't designed totally for women--we must share with you the most manly amenity we've come across in some time. Believe it or not, it's in the bathroom.
