We just returned from our two night stay at the ritz with our family of 5. I have to be honest, my expectations were not great. Two years ago my husband and I spent two nights here and is was not so memorable. We decided to give it another go, but this time with our 3 children. We decided to splurge on the "club level" which really made the trip perfection. The club level offers so many wonderful amenities- breakfast, lunch and deserts daily. Drinks (alcohol included). To travel with three children can be quite pricey regarding constant snacks and beverages so this option really paid for itself and the kids loved it! The convenience of the ski in ski out location was perfect. The service was top notch. Surprisingly there is a lack of 5 star hotels in the Tahoe area so the ritz is a real treat. Prices are high for everything but this should be expected with the name. I highly recommend this hotel for a family trip to the snow.
