Rooms & Rates
The Ritz-Carlton in Lake Tahoe is arguably the swankiest resort in the area, home to a massive, upscale spa, three acclaimed restaurants, heated pools and Jacuzzis open year round, and enough outdoor activities and hiking trails to satisfy the most seasoned adventure seeker.
Rooms are a good size for families, and elegantly styled, with marble bathrooms, deep soaker tubs, gas fireplaces and balconies with views of the mountains or the big pool area. Modern technologies include iPod docking stations and sleek TVs. Nothing here is free however, with fees for Wi-Fi, mandatory valet parking and a resort fee, some guests might begin to accurately feel a bit nickel and dimed.
Despite the seemingly endless fees, this hotel is really the best of the best when it comes to ski vacations: ski-in/ski-out access and gondola transportation to Northstar-at-Tahoe, nightly s'mores around the fire pit, indoor camping and activity programs for kids, and even the quintessential ski lodge experience of taking in gorgeous mountain views from the comfort of a heated outdoor Jacuzzi.
