The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe is approximately eight miles from the activities of Lake Tahoe. The resort’s two pools contribute splashes of excitement and luxury to thrill all family members. Some rooms, suites, and residences have floor to ceiling windows and spectacular mountain views. Apart from desirable extras, they all feature an LCD TV, fireplace, and deep-soak bath. Facilities include a fitness centre and a 17-room spa. The two ballrooms and the Lake Club form inspiring venues for weddings, social events, and conferences. Restaurants at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe include traditional cuisine and breakfast at Manzanita, relaxed style at Backyard Bar & BBQ, and comfort and cocktails in the Living Room. Snacks are in Cafe Blue and it’s the Highlands Bar for drinks. Four miles away, Northstar's ice rink is accessed by a mountain gondola. Approximately five miles from the resort, the volcanic Mount Pluto deserves a word of gratitude. It last erupted about two million years ago and the resulting lava created Lake Tahoe.

Negative Reviews


Extra costs can mount up

As you might expect from a five-star hotel, rates here are quite high. Most guests are okay with the higher prices but many do note that the extra costs for resort fees and Wi-Fi Internet access can mount up. Also, the valet parking is the only parking option available and this also attracts an additional fee.


Service related disappointments

While the service here often attracts positive feedback, reviews reveal that there are some occasional slip ups. Those guests affected by this report that staff members at the front desk were slow to respond to issues brought to their attention.


Occasional complaints

Any other issues here generally relate to one-off or at least very minor concerns. These occasional issues have included noisy air-conditioning units, slow valet parking, and the odd issue in one of the restaurants. A number of guests also mention that the boot room is quite small.
