History of the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe
The Grand Lodge Casino is located inside the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe resort along Country Club Drive in Incline Village, Nevada. The property is situated close to the beaches of Lake Tahoe, just across Lakeshore Blvd. A sidewalk and skywalk lead to the beach.
The North Shore of Lake Tahoe offers several casinos. Originally the property was called the King's Castle, which was opened by Nathan S. Jacobson in 1969. Hyatt Hotels purchased the hotel and casino in May of 1975 and reopened almost immediately as the Hyatt Regency at Incline Village.
The entire property has been refurbished and updated twice since being purchased by Hyatt Hotels. The most recent transformation included a change to a more fitting alpine lodge decor with beautiful rock work and split timber beams.
Grand Lodge Casino
The Grand Lodge Casino operates 24-hours per day and is run by HGMI Gaming, Inc. which also operates the Hyatt Regency Aruba and the Grand Victoria Casino in Indiana. The casino is located downstairs and is easily reached via the self-parking area which brings the guest directly into the sports book and poker area.
The sports book is operated by the Club Cal-Neva and opens at 9:00 a.m. The room features several large screen TV's and is adjacent to the poker room. Four tables of poker open early during the summer and for evening games during the winter months. Low-limit Texas Hold'em is the game of choice with $3-6 limit and $1-2 blind no-limit offered.
The casino has 24 gaming tables, although most are closed during the graveyard hours. Games include Blackjack, Roulette and Craps, plus Let It Ride and Three Card Poker. Weekly blackjack and poker tournaments are offered.
Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe
The Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe offers more than just a casino and hotel rooms. The property is famed for its location adjacent to the shores of beautiful Lake Tahoe. The Hyatt offers over 400 hotel and guest rooms as well as lakefront cottages located on the resort's private beach.
Because the property offers wonderful views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains, wedding and meeting facilities are offered. Dining and bar facilities include the Lone Eagle Grille for hearty entrees like buffalo tenderloin and rack of lamb, Cutthroat's Saloon, Sierra Cafe, Tahoe Provisions, Lakeside Beach Bar & Grill and Stillwater Pool Bar and Grille.
If you want to experience it all, head over to the Pier 111 Bar, suspended over Lake Tahoe at the far end of the 275-foot floating pier. The view of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada sunsets are spectacular. Open seasonally, the bar offers creative cocktails and drinks to accompany the incomparable views of the shimmering lake, snow-capped mountain peaks, dense forest and endless sky. A menu of light fare is offered.
