You have no idea what a Ritz Carlton experience is until you've stayed at one and well...it's above and beyond and absolutely amazing, especially at the Ritz Carlton Highlands. How everyone there knows your name when you walk by I have no idea, but they do. The staff does whatever it takes to make your stay memorable. From the camp... More

The Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe is amazing! I cannot say enough good things about our 4-night stay over Labor Day Weekend. I was traveling with my husband and twin 3-month-old babies (we were there for a dear friend's wedding), and the staff at the RC made it the best possible trip we could have taken with the babies. The RC... More

Amazing place. First class service as in every other Ritz Carlton & very easy access to get there from Reno. Food is excellent & gondola rides are free to the village. Will definitely visit again soon for ski season.

We stayed as a family, 2 adults, 5 children, 1 pug dog. We reserved two rooms via our Amex platinum concierge. We specified with both the hotel and the Amex concierge service that we'd be traveling with our dog - fully aware of the policy pet fee of $150/stay plus $25 per day. First, our Amex Platinum supposedly has early... More

We booked a last minute getaway and loved our time! We especially enjoyed the badminton, ping-pong and bocce facilities. My 9 and 12 year olds were able to keep themselves busy while my husband and I relaxed by the pool. We also loved taking the free gondola down to Northstar village.
