Our family of 5 had two Club Level rooms for a week this July. Making reservations was easy and we received emails prior to our stay asking if there was anything we needed etc. We received a warm welcome upon our arrival end were even able to check in a bit early which was a nice surprise. Our room was... More

This place is beautifully surrounded by mountains. A secluded hideaway for those who love to be pampered. The restaurants are excellent! We had their pizza, hamburgers, grilled chicken, fish, and shrimp and none of the items were disappointments. The food is pricey but good! The staff does a great job anticipating your needs. They are very considerate and quite personable.... More

A beautiful resort for the summer visit. Lots of fun things to participate in especially hiking and golfing. The rooms are outstanding and the service is excellent . Twice daily service with morning maid service and nightly 'turn down' service. The concierge was very helpful and arranged golf and walking activities. The valet parked your car and when taking a...

Ritz Carlton Style! We were greeted upon arrival. Everyone took great care to make sure our stay was excellent. From the valet to bellhop to check-in service to pool attendant = superb service. They have 4 different eateries on-site. The coffee shop was just that: coffee, juice, bagels or oatmeal-bar. Lunch bar by the pool was great : salads were... More

We went for a big wedding and we had a wonderful time. The booking process was great with the help of Drew. He was very kind, accommodating and responded very quickly to my inquiries.

This does not have a view of Lake Tahoe, but if you want to get away from the hustle & bustle, then I would definitely recommend this quiet north side. There is plenty to do on property: outdoor pool & hot tubs, outdoor games, indoor spa with separate outdoor adult pool, a Ritz Kids program, and hiking trails. Also, the... More

Everything about this resort is top notch. It is a little isolated but the amenities more than make up for the location. I personally do not like the crowds and hustle of this South Lake Tahoe area. The Ritz is close enough to the lake and other attractions but not so close that you feel crowded and rushed. As far... More

The Ritz is lovely--we were there in the summer and while it was fairly quiet, it wasn't deserted by any means. It's in a beautiful spot, BUT it's not particularly close to the lake or to Truckee (both are 10-15 minutes in opposite directions). I wasn't expecting it to be such a ski resort, but it definitely is--set back from... More

Although the building is magnificent and the sunset view is spectacular that's where the good points end. We spent a wonderful family week in Tahoe and went to the Ritz for drinks and dinner. We were nicely dressed and there were 6 of us so we shouldn't have been overlooked. It seems the wait staff is either poorly trained, new,... More

The property is nestled in the side of a mountain. It's updated . The food at the pool is actually good. 10 minutes to Lake Tahoe. Nice pool. Rooms are appointed well. They lose one star because you either have the Ritz Carlton experience with regards to service or you have these employees peppered through out the are new and... More
