Breakfast Service

Breakfast will be provided for registered surgeons Monday - Wednesday. 

Spouses, significant others, and children are invited to dine on their own in The Bistro, Coffee Bar, or by ordering room service.  The NSA will provide each registered adult guest (13 years and older) with a $25 credit per day up to 3 days, depending upon the length of your stay. Each registered child (2-12 years old) will receive a $12.00 credit per day up to 3 days.  A gift card will be presented upon check-in.  The gift cards will be pre-loaded and can be used for breakfast or in any hotel outlet you choose - spa, pro shop, etc. 

The NSA is utilizing all the guest rooms and meeting space at the Edgewood Tahoe.  As such, they are only accepting Lodge guests for breakfast and lunch at the Bistro on Monday and Tuesday to service the spouses and children during that time frame. The Edgewood has closed all online bookings for that period so that they only service hotel (NSA) guests.  You cannot currently make an online dining reservation at the Bistro for breakfast or lunch.  Reservations can be made with the hotel staff once you arrive onsite or you may simply walk-up when you are ready to dine.
