Well, it’s out with the old and in with the new here on the South Shore of Lake Tahoe. What opened as the Sahara Tahoe Casino in 1965 is becoming the newest Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Word has it that they are scheduled to open in early January 2015 after a huge renovation to the property. In 1983 Del Webb bought the Sahara and it enjoyed several years as the High Sierra Hotel before becoming the Horizon Casino Resort in 1990. Now back in the day performers among the likes of Elvis and Liberace graced that magnificent old showroom. We’re really excited to see the reincarnation of this old building and even more excited about the live music that Hard Rock will surely bring us.
The hotel is located about 4 blocks from Heavenly Ski Resort’s gondola and smack dab in the middle of the casino corridor; with plenty of action, shops, nightlife, etc. For those interested in skiing Sierra at Tahoe, Kirkwood or Squaw Valley, there are shuttles that will easily get you there also. Black Tie Ski Rental Delivery will happily come set you up with your ski and snowboard rental gear right in the comfort of your room at the Hard Rock Hotel!
