The 15-acre site of the former Tahoe Biltmore Hotel and Casino at North Lake Tahoe will be the new home of a 76-room hotel and 61 residences, Hilton announced on Monday.
The Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe is slated to open in 2027. The Biltmore closed last spring.
“Now more than ever, our guests are seeking engaging experiences, from embracing local culture to connecting with nature,” said Hilton Chief Brand Officer Matt Schuyler. “Bringing Waldorf Astoria’s distinguished hospitality to an extraordinary location like Lake Tahoe provides the perfect opportunity for travelers and residents to immerse themselves in the incredible, serene beauty that the destination offers while indulging in the authentic and sophisticated experiences for which the brand is renowned.”
Construction of Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe includes an expected 90 percent reduction in sediment runoff into Lake Tahoe and a 38 percent reduction in total water and energy use.
Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe will form part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 18 world-class brands.
The resort will feature a promenade and hub with shops and restaurants for guests, residents and locals. Paying homage to the popular gaming history of Nevada, Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe will offer a casino with live entertainment and a speakeasy for a contemporary get-away.
The resort will offer a 3-acre lakefront beach club on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, a gondola-side mountain club at NorthStar Ski Resort, and transportation to nearby golf clubs, hiking trails, and the region’s ski slopes. As part of the beach club, guests staying at the resort will have access to a private beach and mooring, a pier for direct lake access and a resort-access-only signature res-taurant and event hall.
Hilton has more than 45 existing properties in Nevada and nearly 15 hotels in the development pipeline. Once open, Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe is expected to be the state’s fourth luxury hotel.
Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe’s branded residences will be represented for sale by Mike Dunn at Chase International. Visit Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe to learn more about the project.
