Elvis Suite, Now At Horizon Lake Tahoe

The Horizon in Lake Tahoe has recently refurbished it's Elvis Presley Suite in funky Graceland style decor. This re-pimping of the King's involvement at Horizon (back when it was the Sahara Tahoe) lends further credence to the statement that 'Elvis Slept Here' is the new 'George Washington Slept Here.'

This would be great news, except that the Horizon is a true dump of a joint. Last time we stayed at Horizon, a water pipe burst in the ceiling of the casino... raining buckets of water on slot plunkers in the middle of the casino floor and a torrential river of water out the side door of the casino. That nobody got electrocuted was a complete miracle.

Regardless of Horizon Tahoe's shortcomings, the photo of the Elvis suite might signal good things for the property as it transitions into becoming the Tropicana Tahoe over the coming years. Let's hope that owners Columbia-Sussex... er Tropicana Casinos & Resorts... finish the job, unlike the Montbleu Lake Tahoe, whose hotel towers are still as Caesars as they ever were... including stencils of Doric columns in the hallways and hotel rooms. MontFrankenBleu's Palace?
