Hotwire Hotel: 3.5* Reno-Tahoe (South Lake Tahoe) Harveys

By belgo,

Another happy customer! I booked two rooms (through www.savingsbarn.com of course) for these two weeknights for $50 a night per room. Total for both rooms for two nights including taxes and fees was $224.62. I once stayed in one of their Lake Tower rooms and it ended up being one of my favorite hotel stays in my life. I realize that as Hotwire customers, we'll be in the Mountain Tower, though. It'll be interesting to contrast the two rooms, since I've never stayed in the Mountain Tower. The amenities listed were Resort, near beach, casino, fitness, pool, restaurant, business center, and golf nearby. Interestingly, I tried Priceline, which, according to this site, lists Harvey's as a 4*, but when I entered 4*, it stated no availability of 4*'s in the So. Lake Tahoe area. It looks like it's getting harder to figure out free rebid zones, too. I've very pleased with this, though. I love Harvey's (dislike the old Caesar's the most--there's a new name for that dump with the cheap walls/no insulation). :)

Congratulations on your success... glad to hear you are happy with the results.

Sounds like you were using the retail/non-opaque version of priceline to see if there were 4* hotels available, which is not an indicator of star ratings offered in this area. See the related link in our PRICELINE FAQ for a further discusion.

Enjoy your stay.

No, I was definitely using the bidding site, because I entered a $44 bid, and it came back and said that there are no 4*'s in the south lake tahoe area, and asked if I wanted to bid in the north Lake Tahoe area (I'm not sure what's 4* up there except maybe the Hilton resort). Maybe Priceline has re-classified Harvey's as a 3* (Hotwire lists it as 3 1/2*). Although the Lake Tower rooms are definitely 4* quality (having once stayed there on a business expense account), my understanding is that the Mountain Tower rooms are more fairly described as 3*.

belgo is correct: PL goes up to only 3* in South Lake Tahoe. There is 4* on the north side of the lake.

Midweek in October is the definition of low season. You can find published rates in Tahoe for less than $30, and in Reno for less than $20. Not at Harvey's, tho.

Correct... my bad.

When looking at the topic title of this thread, and "Tahoe" didn't take at pricleine (you need to put "Lake Tahoe") i instead put in Reno and was looking at South Reno (instead of South Tahoe) :)

Thanks for clarifying.
