This Embassy Suites has an ideal location for you Skiers, Gamblers, Shoppers and those with Families!
Skiers: The Heavenly Valley Gondola is nearby, walking just about a block west, which takes you up to mid-mountain.
Gamblers: It is right on the Stateline, so it is next door to Harrah's, and by underground tunnel from there, connected to Harvey's. There are two other casinos within walking distance.
Shoppers: It is next door to the large Heavenly Village shopping mall, so there are plenty of boutiques, sporting goods, and other shops for you non-skiers, or skiers taking a break and getting needed supplies or gifts.
Families: The Embassy Suites design make it perfect for families, with a double size sofa bed in the front room, and a king sized bed in the bedroom, and dual TVs. Plus, sink, microwave, fridge, dining table for 4, and lounge chair, all make it very comfortable for a family of 4.
Other Pluses: Indoor pool and hot tub, sauna, gym, concierge. Plus FREE breakfast 7 - 10 daily, and FREE manager's happy hour with snacks 4:30 - 6:30 daily. They have 24 hour room service, too. For Gold and up Hilton members, they have a separate ballroom with your Manager's happy hour during peak seasonal times, like Christmas.
Minuses: Valet parking only! And at $25 a day. They usually get your car in 5 - 10 minutes, but it can get hectic at busy times, like weekends. (Tip: You could try to sneak a parking stall in the back at the Harrah's lot and walk in.) WiFi is $12.95 a day, unless you are a Gold or Diamond Hilton Honors member, then it is free.
Also, the walls are kind of thin, so you can hear the kids screaming in the rooms next to you pretty easily. Keep that in mind if you have your own screamer, kid or adult!
This Embassy is 7 stories, and about twice as deep as most ES. But there are only 4 elevators, so sometimes they are jammed, especially during peak times, like breakfast and happy hour.
Depending on room, season and availability, you'll pay about $200-$250/night or so here. But when you factor in free brekkie and cocktails/snacks, it is a good deal, in an ideal location.Recommended for:

Centrally located in the south shore, the Embassy Suites is an awesome place to call home away from in the South Tahoe area. Walking distance to Heavenly on the California side and numerous entertainment venues/casinos on the Nevada, the ES's on the border location is ideal. Plenty of food option in its vicinity, one needs not drive anywhere else once arrived at the resort as everything relevant is walking distance. not to mention its nightly manager's reception (hello happy hour) and made to order breakfast daily. Rates are generally of good value for the amenities and convenience.

I stayed at the Embassy Suites once with my family. As with any place in Lake Tahoe, I find this hotel is a little grungier than somewhere with more pleasant weather conditions and guests that aren't trampling through the hotel in their wet ski clothes. So this wasn't a luxury experience, but compared to other hotels in the area, this was a nice choice. The hotel is very big and spacious. In the morning, they have a huge continental buffet that is perfect for getting energized before hitting the slopes!Recommended for:
