TRUCKEE, Calif. - The Truckee Hotel has been a Sierra landmark since it opened its doors in 1873. While it has undergone a facelift here and there to keep it current with the times, recent improvements have added first-rate amenities and service without detracting from its Old World charm and affordable rates. Bathtubs still have claw feet, the lobby mirror, which survived the fire of 1909 still hangs, friendly ghosts seem happy with new warm colors and the soft candle-lit effect of new chandeliers. Of course, everyone enjoys the proximity to other great Truckee haunts.
Experience the pulse of historic downtown Truckee while staying at the Truckee Hotel, near restaurants, wine bars, clothing, jewelry, furniture, and night life. Each of the 36 rooms were recently renovated with all the comforts and amenities of today's hotels. Eight American rooms feature queen or king-sized beds with private bath including Victorian claw foot tubs. The 28 European rooms have their own sinks, in the European tradition, and share baths down the hall. There are nine hall bathrooms throughout the hotel, each designed for individual use with privately locking doors, all immaculately clean, and just a few steps from your room.
The Historic Truckee Hotel held a ribbon cutting to celebrate the completion of their renovations Feb. 1 suring Truckee Downtown Merchant Association's monthly First Friday event. Every room in the hotel has been refurnished, redecorated and revamped to provide a comfortable stay in this 130-year-old Truckee landmark.
