This resort began as a cabin in 1944, and now it's Tahoe's largest casino-hotel; premium rooms have custom furnishings, oversize marble baths, minibars, and good lake views. Although it was acquired by Harrah's and has lost some of its cachet, Harveys remains a fine property. At Cabo Wabo ($–$$), an always-hopping Baja-style cantina owned by Sammy Hagar, sip agave-style tequila while munching on tapas and shouting across the table at your date. Harveys Cabaret is the
hotel's showroom. In summer check out the popular outdoor concert series and book early; room rates zoom up when hot acts are playing.
