This is likely more popular in the winter as a ski destination but we found it very relaxing in August. Weather was perfect - 70s during th day and 40a at night. about a 20 minutes drive from the lake if you want to do water activities. The service in this hotel is outstanding even by Ritz standards. Everyone was... More

This is an exquisitely well run establishment, and in my view impossible to fault. The resort itself is fabulous - the buildings fit effortlessly into the surrounding countryside, which in itself is spectacular. It feels cosy and warm in its environment. The public areas of the hotel are wonderfully furnished and very relaxed. Our room was extremely well appointed: wonderfully... More

First off, the property is beautiful and the staff across the board were very friendly and helpful. Our only issue with staff was at check-in, where the clerk did a poor job of explaining our stay benefits. In fact, she just read verbatim from our welcome letter, which was a bit amateur. We stayed in a Club king, and the... More

For the last two summers, we have stayed in more rustic accomodations by the lake for the first two nights and then followed it up with a couple of more nights in luxury at the Ritz Carlton. While we can appreciate both "roughing it" and being spoiled (and so does the dog), there is nothing better than rolling into the... More

I REALLY love the bathtubs here! I am tall with long legs, and these tubs are perfect. Up to my chin in comfort and water and my legs stretched out blissfully! When our darling maid found out I liked to soak, she left me lots of shower gel I could squeeze into the running water. Made for a delightful bubble... More

Ritz-Carlton is my favorite hotel brand but whenever I am traveling with my family and staying at a RC, I'm usually uncomfortable in the club room, pool areas etc with my outgoing child. It's not that other RCs are not family friendly, it's just that there usually aren't any other kids around and other guests give you that look...... At... More

We arrived at the Tahoe Ritz coming from San Francisco and the place was a slice of heaven. The staff were over the top accomadative to our family. Checked us in early, helped provide suggestions on local activities, and showed us around the grounds. I arrived very stressed from our many miles of travel having originated in San Diego, but...

First, in full disclosure the hotel sent me an email survey and upon receipt of my reply I was sent a personal and most apologetic reply from their Director of Operations which included an offer for one free night stay should we decide to return. That is exemplary customer service. The Ritz-Carlton may be the victim of their own doing... More

Hung out here for a few hours on the terrace, drinking Bloody Mary's while friends were doing some hiking. Such an enjoyable relaxing atmosphere. My friend and I situated ourselves on the comfy couches in front of the fire pit, enjoying the peace and quiet, when a guitarist started playing in the background, her comment was," it just gets better...

We recently stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Lake Tahoe with another couple. We stayed at their villas facility. The villa was amazing. 2 full master BR's and baths, a full LR, DR, Study, and an office. The kitchen was amazingly well equipped if you want to cook in. Beds and linens were at the level you would expect from... More
