A Green Hotel Taking a Stand for Sustainability

We’re proud to be the area leader in hotel environmental sustainability.

We’re all fortunate to be able to visit, vacation, play, live, or work in one of nature’s most beautiful recreational areas. As a green hotel, the Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel is committed to keeping things that way. Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America and has clarity of 70 ft.—meaning you can see 70 feet down into its crystal clear waters. Each year the residents and visitors of Lake Tahoe work to maintain and improve that clarity; to keep Lake Tahoe pristine for future generations to enjoy.

We continuously consult with environmental and energy-efficiency experts to help us analyze and develop additional opportunities to continue leading the way for green hotel business and environmental sustainability in Tahoe.
