It's an outstanding hotel, well designed and situated. The lounge and backyard patio are great places to spend an afternoon. The staff are absolutely first rate. And the food and rooms are excellent also.

Start with a Beautiful drive through the mountains. You will soon notice an impressive structure seemingly growing out of the mountain side. As you turn into the driveway you are met by some of the most courteous staff members I've ever encountered. I stayed in the residence Constellation wing. An 1878 square foot abode with every Amenity. The room included... More

This is the place for some r & r. Up in the mountains of Lake tahoe, there's the fresh mountain air! And the spa is wonderful....a massage, relax the the pool and be surrounded by the peaceful mountains. The food at the restaurant is good and fresh. Lots of things to do for the family of all ages. Awesome thing... More

Driving up the long hill to the hotel and taking in the beautiful views we were keen to see the mountain view room we had booked way back in April, so were bitterly disappointed to find our room on the ground floor with a walkway outside the window and a view of the play area with hills in the back...

My wife and I stayed here in Aug 2014. Lives up to its expectation of being a Ritz. Great expansive property nestled up in the mountains. Calm, serene and beautiful charming surroundings. Lush green gardens, nice pool and the backyard grill restaurant by the poolside. They had live entertainment on the poolside patio on one afternoon when we ate by... More

It's easy to see why the hotel would be great for a family winter break - everything is conveniently situated, facilities are really good and there seem to be plenty of activities for kids. As a summer destination, it is probably less compelling for more than a few days, unless you're serious hikers or mountain bikers. There are good golf... More

Our family recently returned from a wonderful 1 week stay at the Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe, club level. The hotel is perfectly set up with many fun activities for families, ranging from the nicely heated pool (3.5 ft deep throughout) with adjacent shallow kids wading pool, nightly s'mores, and an assortment of backyard games such as giant Jenga, bocce, disc...

Rooms on the pool (called mountain view, or slope side by the hotel) are extremely loud and do not convey the peace of this lovely area. Room carts rolling over uneven pavement at 5:00 am. Do not plan on sleeping with your windows open. Be especially careful when renting residences on 3rd floor. We had room 370 directly above the... More
