This is a quiet time for this resort . Not much going on but the hotel is beautiful with very comfortable rooms. The staff were so friendly and accommodating . We enjoyed BBQ on their new outdoor patio. It was delish! Don't miss that. I liked how casual this location is. About 15 minutes to the lake.

We stayed the Ritz Carlton as part of a road trip that included staying one night in a much less expensive Fairfield Inn just before our stay and one night in a much more expensive Ahwahnee Hotel after our stay. The Ritz Carlton was the big winner! It had everything you would want in a hotel room and everything that... More

We stayed for two nights during a touring holiday. The hotel has an impressive façade and nicely presented reception area. Although our room was not ready, we were happy to enjoy a drink in the BBQ Bar area, which was quite busy with families and activities. We were assigned a corner room with spectacular views. The room had a fireplace... More

This hotel is beautifully situated and wonderfully appointed, both inside and out. The architecture and interior decor create a most comfortable environment, with ample places to sit and relax, meet friends, etc. We found the staff to be tremendously welcoming and helpful. Any questions we had were promptly answered and suggestions/ directions were easily obtained. Dinner at the hotel's restaurant... More

My husband and I arrived around 11pm on a Wednesday night and were first amazed that the hotel seemed empty and deserted. An attendant came running (literally) up to valet park our rental car. We entered and were checked in, given a key and told how to get to our room. No assistance was offered with our luggage. Entering our... More

I can't wait to go back to the Ritz-Carlton at Lake Tahoe. It is a stunning property. The views of the rugged Sierra Nevada mountains (not of the lake) are gorgeous. But what I love is this distinctive, unique, architecturally interesting, new and modern, high-quality hotel. It is a hotel's hotel. I could not get enough of it. The various... More

Where do I start? My son and daughter-in-law got married at the Ritz this past weekend. Their attention to detail is unbelievable. They treated all of us like royalty. The rooms are lush and beautiful. The food they prepared for the wedding was delicious. I cannot say enough great things about this resort! Oh, let's not forget the views! Unbelievable!!

We had a wonderful stay in the mountains after a couple of great days on the lake. After experiencing incline and hanging out with friends we decided to take it up to Northstar for the weekend. The hotel is beautiful but felt a bit empty in August. The hotel manager, Dean Griffin, was especially welcoming and ensured we had a... More
