We checked out of another hotel in the area after having a bad couple of nights. We checked into the Ritz Carlton and it really saved our vacation! We loved the quiet, peaceful and private location - Lake Tahoe is only a short drive away. Our standard room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the mountainside view. The front drive... More

Spent two nights at this beautiful place! Too short a stay! The rooms were lovely, and the staff were wonderful. Rogelio, the club level concierge, was very attentive and took such good care of my husband and I. Thank you Rogelio!!! The General Manager Joseph was also very helpful and went out his way to show us the property and... More

We were on business in the Carson area and selected the Ritz to add some relaxation and relief after hectic days and to escape the overpriced low-value hotels of Carson City. We were not disappointed. The property is extremely well located and the views are just spectacular. Service is over-the-top and if you stay at the club level, you will... More

My husband and I were very disappointed with our stay here. This is quite a drive from Tahoe City and the lake. Staff on the desk were helpful, but waited 1/2 hour for our cases to be brought to our room. Air conditioning in the room was noisy, which did not aid sleep. Why do they need to have valet... More

My wife and three boys visited last weekend and this place ruined other hotels for us. Everyone we encountered was so focused on taking care of every need, wish and whim-we did not want to leave. Upgrade to the Club level, it is surely worth every penny. The rooms have spectacular views-try to get a balcony! Hope to be back... More

The Ritz is so-called 'dog friendly' - that means all dogs welcomed not just service dogs. This is great if you have a dog - not so good if you want a good night's sleep. We were woken up 3 consecutive nights @ 4 am by barking dogs across the hall; not good. The staff sent a plates of chocolates... More

The hotel and the surrounding area specialize in accomodating skiers. I was there in late June to hike. I found Tahoe to be an excellent hiking area, and I loved my stay at the hotel. Nearby Truckee is a charming town with some good restaurants. The best feature is the service. From the valet parking, to reception, to wait staff... More

Besides the food in the living room which was very low quality, I mean we could not eat it...everything was amazing!! Ski valet, mountain concierge, the slopes, the front desk attendant, the gentleman that valet the cars and the individuals that drive the house cars, the spa -- every single thing was pleasant. I absolutely did not want to leave!... More

We loved This place. We spent our anniversary here, and were spoiled! A beautiful hotel that is like a hidden treasure. Staff were friendly. The room was comfortable. In the late afternoon they have a cart with everything for Smores. The marshmallows are homemade and absolutely delicious. They have fire pits, and walking paths. A great place for couples to...
