If you have never been to Lake Tahoe in the summer, you are missing out. It has to be the most beautiful place in the US. We have left the Florida heat five times now for a summer visit. The weather, the scenery and all the activities in the area have made it my family's favorite destination. This is our second stay at the Grand Residence and there is no better place to stay. It is in the best location right in the heart of the action. Additionally you get the space and convenience of a condo with the wonderful amenities of a fine hotel. If you are smart enough to rent through Jess the owner instead of the Marriott directly, not only will you save money (and get free parking as well) but will feel like you rented from your friend. This is a spacious unit with a full kitchen and everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Don't hesitate to book it. Just leave me a week in August to come back! It's really that good!
