Most beautiful hotel I've ever stayed in

Would recommend Mon, Oct 26, 2015
Gorgeous hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The room was amazing as were the public areas. One small complaint - the room AC was really noisy going off and on all night.

Beautiful resort nestled in the Sierra's. We arrived for an overnight getaway to celebrate our anniversary and got upgraded to a suite. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous...nothing but the best when you stay at a Ritz. We will be back!

A Very Enjoyable Stay

Would recommend Sat, Sep 6, 2014
My dad is handicapped. When we arrived at Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe, the handicapped parking was full. The stuff was very nice to waive the $35 overnight charge through out our stay. We did not have club level at first. We went into the club level lounge, the stuff was very nice to give us a tour, and offered $150 per night per room upgrade. Since there were 3 of us in a suite, it was quite a savings. The front desk at first told us the upgrade price would be $300 per night. After we explained, they ended up charging only $150 per night. Of course, I gave the gentleman a good tipping at the end. The adult swimming pool was very nicely situated and equipped. There were sauna and steam room, among others. The stuff was very helpful and friendly. It was very comfortable to swim in the afternoon. There were fruit drinks and snacks. There was an extra $20.67 on our bill at the end. I asked the front desk about it, and she said it was milk and others being charged by the restaurant. I told her we paid our bill by credit card, and it was likely that they charged someone else' bill onto our account. She was happy to remove it from our bill. Overall, we've had very good experience at Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe.

Would recommend Sun, Jun 22, 2014
Went to celebrate our anniversary in June. Beautiful spot, a little far from other restaurants and amenities, but worth the drive. On site restaurant was expensive and the food was fair, but great space and great staff. Would love to go back there during the winter.

My husband and I spent a couple of days at The Ritz Lake Tahoe for his 50th Birthday. The staff was fantastic. Especially Jess!!! She went out of her way to make our stay special. Eggs Benedict on the patio of Manzanitta in the morning was delightful. Already planning another stay...

Pricey, but very enjoyable

Would recommend Sat, Apr 30, 2011
Upon arrival, the front desk gave us a beautiful room with a mountain view as I requested, however, it had only one bed for a family of four. When they offered to move us to a room with two beds and a non mountain view, I stated that is not what I reserved and they quickly resolved the issue. The room service and restaurants were expensive but good quality. The staff was very attentive and tried to remember everyone by smiling and saying their names. The spa staff was very accommodating and pleasant offering robes and slippers. The pools and hot tubs were great even when it was snowing. It would have been outstanding if there was poolside service for drinks. The ski shop on site was great so you do not have to rent skis and purchase lift tickets at the village below. Overall, it was a very nice stay.

Shopping hint

To get to the shopping and a variety of restaurants at village in Northstar, you have to drive or take the Gondola down the hill. Since it was the last weekend of the ski season, most of the shops were closed.
