Criswell Radovan, LLC acquired the legendary Cal Neva hotel in Lake Tahoe in April 2013. In 2015, we will re-open this property after a $32 million renovation, and bring back a true icon.
The Cal Neva hotel, founded in 1926, is the oldest casino in the U.S. and saw its heyday in the 1960s when it was owned by Frank Sinatra and became a popular destination among the Hollywood and political elite. The property will feature 191 guest rooms among its tower, chalets, and cabins. It also enjoys a non-restricted gaming license for a 17,000 sq. ft. casino; 16,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, a full service spa, a 350-seat showroom, the famous Circle Bar, restaurant and market.
Set on almost 14 acres overlooking Lake Tahoe, the property has just over 9 acres in Nevada and 4.5 acres in the State of California in the North Shore area of Lake Tahoe. It is a 45 minute drive from the Reno-Tahoe airport, about 3.5 hours by car from San Francisco, and about 90 minutes by car from Sacramento. In addition to being less than 400 feet from the water, the Cal Neva is within 30 minutes of the Northstar, Squaw and Alpine Meadows ski areas, as well as several smaller ski resorts such as Diamond Peak in Incline Village.
