About The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe

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.

Positive Reviews

Top marks for location

Guests consistently give this Truckee hotel top marks for its location, especially appreciative of the ski-in and out access available on-site. Activities are nearby whether staying in summer or winter but guests have enjoyed the year-round mountain views.

Excellent leisure amenities

Relaxation seems to come easy. When guests aren’t hitting the slopes, they have spent a great deal of their time enjoying the hotel’s leisure amenities. The spa is a real treat and guests have loved the heated pool and jacuzzis. On-site dining also receives great feedback.

Modern and spacious rooms

The quality of the rooms here is rated highly, with many guests finding the accommodation modern, spacious, and as containing all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. Guests have particularly liked the sky lodge style of the rooms as well as gorgeous views.

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.
