People often do things in hotels that they would never do in their own homes, such as sleep soundly, watch Marley and Me, or let the kids drink as much shampoo as they want. Let loose with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a one-night stay, welcome basket with a bottle of wine, and a rose-petal turndown at the Border House at Crystal Bay Casino in Crystal Bay (up to a $159 value).
Situated a stone's throw away from the Crystal Bay Casino's pulse-hiking games of chance, the Border House counters the Bacchanalian festivities with restive respites in well-appointed rooms. Visitors choose from three suite types, each outfitted with Frette robes and linens, plasma TVs, wireless Internet, and psychic concierges.
Cozy up under the covers of junior suite #1's queen-size bed, soak away stressors in deluxe suite #2's chromotherapy tub, or watch for new opening gambits with specialty suite #11's self-playing chess set. Each suite comes stocked with a basket of gustatory goodies, including a bottle of wine. Guests can also prepare for a fragrant night's sleep with the Border House's rose-petal turndown service, sinking into sheets sprinkled with a romantic blanket of floral confetti.
In addition to the neon razzmatazz of its casino neighbor, the Border House sits just down the street from Lake Tahoe’s shore, affording visitors the opportunity to catch a show, sample the eco-cuisine at Bistro Elise, or play hopscotch with a gaggle of beached lake monsters.
