Stayed at Harrah's Reno and Harvey' Lake Tahoe since I only have status with TR. Two nights in Reno was one too many. The entire facility is dated, especially compared to Silver Legacy and Eldorado down the street. We played mostly off-site- low limit BJ at CalNeva next door ( my wife won't play higher than $10), and some higher limit at Silver Legacy. No real luck anywhere. If visiting downtown Reno, don't miss the Truckee Riverwalk. Beautiful space for a morning walk or jog- a few homeless but they did not bother us. As for food, we did the champagne brunch at Harrah's. With an ACG twofer, only $20 total, including six mimosas. Pretty good brunch. We also ate a couple times at Top Deck in CalNeva- like old school Vegas, steak and lobster 9.99 and tons of menu items $5-$10. Good food and service. Day 3 we headed to Tahoe. Nice 25 degree temp drop. We have been here several times, in winter and summer, but this was our first stay at Harvey's and we were very impressed. Our 15th floor room had a partial view of the lake. It was nice and big. My wfe especially liked the bathroom setup. An open alcove by the closet had a large counter, sink, stool and makeup mirror. Behind one door was a toilet and behind another door a tub, separate shower and another sink. No coffee maker but we did have a mini-fridge. Ours would not cool but a replacement was quickly provided. We liked the Harvey's casino and mostly played there, BJ, UTH and VP. My wife also will try a couple of slots a day at $20 a pop. She had some luck with Game of Thrones and Elvis in Vegas a few months back but nothing this trip. I pretty much contributed till our ladt night when I had a short profitable run on a $10 craps table and then ran up about 2k on a Glenlivet fueled run on $25 BJ. Also won 4 out of 4 baseball bets. In South Lake Tahoe we spent a lot of time enjoying the awesome setting. We walked every morning, sometimes to the lake, or by Edgewood Tahoe GC or around Gondola Village. We kayaked on the lake one day, took Harrah's private boat cruise to Emerald Bay, drove the circumference of the lake another day. For meals of note, I would mention: Lucky Beaver- a little hole in the wall less than a block from Harvey's. The use a special beef and cook burgers, steaks and chops on a rotating open flame grill. We only had the burgers and tater tots but they were special. 19TH Kitchen+Bar- our one splurge meal on top of Harvey's. Spectacular sunset views, excellent service and very good (not great) food. Expect to drop $100 per couple plus drinks. Lakeside Inn and Casino- we met some friends in Tahoe and they told us about this place where we had breakfast every morning followed by $5 BJ. Sgn up for their club and every day you get a $5 match play and $3 drink coupon good in the restaurant. Nice 5.99 breakfast specials and small but friendly casino. About a mile from the big casinos so we drove there every day. Diamond Lounges- we are not diamond but our friends both are and could each bring a guest. The Harrah's lounge is open every night and serves soup and salad plus munchies. Good enough for dinner a couple nights. Located on the ground floor behind the High Limit area. Harvey's is only open weekends but is located, I think, on the 18th floor. Great views but only munchies. I hope I have been a little informative and will gladly answer questions.
