Getting Here and Getting Around

Airport, Amtrak, Local Ground Transport

We’re smack in the middle of all the fun stuff in town, so you know you’ll never be bored when you stay with us. A five-minute walk north will take you to the Heavenly Mountain Gondola, and a five-minute walk west will take you to the casinos. During summer, you can also take a ten-minute walk down to the lakeside beach and spend your day lounging by the water.
