My husband and I spent a weekend (during off-season) to see what it had to offer. Be sure to drive slow up to the hotel, it's a million dollar view of the property. The hotel staff was warm and inviting at check-in and had us quickly tucked into our room overlooking the pool. The room was lovely, but I had... More

My wife and I used the ritz Carleton at Lake Tahoe as a base for hiking! Pleasantly surprised by the on site restaurant. It was superb dining experience. They also had gourmet s'mores which you roasted your own marshmallows. I guess that's why they call it THE RITZ.

I stayed at the RC for a work meeting and absolutely fell in love. The hotel lobby has vast fireplaces and and large windows to take in the breathtaking mountainous view. You can grab a delicious cold pressed juice from the cafe or a lovely glass of red wine and enjoy the lobby. OR you can go to the "backyard"... More

The common areas of the RC Lake Tahoe are truly magnificent. The lobby floor has multiple seating areas with fireplaces and comfortable chairs. The lobby makes the hotel. Our room, a one bedroom suite with a Martis Valley view, was ok. The problem for me was the view included the front entrance to the hotel and the drive way, so,... More

Loved the whole experience of staying at the Ritz. The staff treated my dog as a member of my family and were very attentive to any needs we might have. Stayed during the off season so it was very quiet and many things were not open, still if you are going to enjoy the sites and walk it is the... More

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at this hotel and highly recommend it ! The property is lovely, the service is very good, and the accommodations are quite comfortable. This property is definitely the RITZ ! We hope to return for a ski vacation soon.

This hotel is like an oasis. It's a little off the beaten path however, once you arrive there isn't a need to go anywhere else. You can relax here any time of the year. There are plenty of activities like hiking, horse back riding, and a full service spa and gym. The rooms are spacious with a small sitting area... More

We normally love staying at the Ritz Carlton hotels. This one had great service, nice 1 bedroom suite, great setting--but I did not sleep well in the hotel. It is very unusual to stay at a high end Marriott property that has so much internal noise. I kept hearing the people below our room! I'm a light sleeper and it... More

Beautiful Location. Very friendly and helpful staff eager to meet your every need. Food was always delicious! Loved having a fireplace in my room and an oversized tub. I don't ski, but if I did I imagine this would be a perfect place to stay as the lifts and gondola are right here too.

This place is awesome, starting with the drive up the hill that creates anticipation for what awaits you at the top. The Ritz does not disappoint, it is everything you expect from a Ritz. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. the grounds are amazing - on the first floor in the back of the hotel is a great outdoor... More
