What I love the most about design blogging is it there so many different areas you can cover. Today I want to talk about one of my favorite things in the world, luxury travel. For me nobody does it better than the Hyatt. My favorite of the many Hyatt hotels that I stay at frequently is in Lake Tahoe. It’s amazing in the summer and almost takes a completely different persona during the winter.
The interiors look like a luxury log cabin with about four fireplaces in the lobby. As always, in any of the upscale Hyatts you are greeted with a nice glass of champagne while you wait for your room. There are high ceilings everywhere and the atmosphere is very much like you would want at a luxury resort. The more upscale restaurants and bars on the property tend to be a 5 to 10 minute walk from there. Truth is who’s going to object to a nice walk in Lake Tahoe. You will see some of the most amazing scenery in the entire world in Lake Tahoe.
The Lone Eagle Grill which is the first class restaurant on the property is always where I eat. It overflows with luxury and again you get that high-end log cabin feeling. The venue is one-of-a-kind and the wine list is second to none. There’s high-end luxury outdoor furniture that you can relax on as you catch the sunset while sipping on your favorite glass of red wine. The entire restaurant patio and property must’ve cost a fortune because it delivers a one-of-a-kind luxury get away vibe. The people watching is amazing.
One of the main reasons I like to stay at this hotel is because it really makes you feel pampered. Being in the design industry, it’s easy to see when someone create a masterpiece. This hotel is just that. From the exterior details to the rough luxe interiors, this hotel is a gem. I live fairly close to Lake Tahoe and there’s a Ritz Carlton right down the road, but for my money I always go with the Hyatt.
The visuals I included in this post represent only a small percentage of what you’ll experience if you decide to stay at this hotel. I also want to remind you this is not a review. What this is is a recount of how a designer took a concept and made it one of a kind.
