9.4 Excellent
Pros:Amazing location, great service, facilities were extremely well maintained.
Cons:The boot section of the ski valet was the only place where we had bad service. The guy there seemed to not care about his job, gave us other people’s boots (more than once), told us our boots weren’t there until we explained that we had seen them arrive 5 minutes earlier, then he bothered to look. Otherwise the service and staff went above and beyond, were really friendly, and made our stay great.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Fitness center was outstanding!
7.7 Good
Pros:Ambiance, facilities, and convenience.
Cons:The dinning options are inadequate and did not meet our expectations. In-room dinning options are limited and low quality. Dining is a major factor in our experience and the Ritz-Carlton offering seemed disjointed.

FAQs when booking at The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe

  • Guests with existing The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe reservations for any future arrival date, including reservations with pre-paid rates, can make full changes or cancellations without a charge up to 24 hours prior to arrival, as long as the change or cancellation is made by June 30, 2020. For guests making new reservations at The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe for any future arrival date, including reservations with pre-paid rates, between today and June 30, 2020, reservations may be changed or canceled at no charge up to 24 hours before your scheduled arrival date. For more information, visit the Mariott Response to COVID-19 page.

  • To relax and remove any tension from your body, make a reservation for the Lake Tahoe Stone Massage, a 50 to 80m treatment that will leave you feeling revitalized. If you find that your body is feeling particularly dehydrated, choose the Hydrotherapy Care service, as it uses a selection of aromatherapy salt blends to both restore and detoxify your body. For those that would like smooth and toned skin, select the Biodynamic Facial, which lasts for 50 to 80m and will leave you looking younger and healthier.

  • When you decide to spend your special day at the Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe, there are a variety of customizable packages for you to choose from. Some potential amenities include the help of a personal wedding planner, a champagne toast, an open bar, a custom wedding cake, and a 2-course dinner.

  • If you would like to keep the little ones entertained while staying at the Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe, consider purchasing the Indoor Campout Package for $150, which will provide you with a small tent, an activity book, a s’mores kit, and a teddy bear. Additionally, there is the Ritz Kids Program, which is meant for guests between the ages of 5 and 12 and provides activities such as scavenger hunts, arts and crafts, and recreational activities. When parents sign their children up for this program, they will have the choice between a full and half day program.

  • To relax somewhere quiet and peaceful, go to the hotel’s Lake Club. Equipped with a small private pier, kayaks, paddle boards, an outdoor spa, drinks, gourmet food, several fireplaces, and showers, the Lake Club is the perfect place to spend the day on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Access to the club costs a small additional fee, and there is a complimentary shuttle that visitors can use to go back and forth between the hotel.

  • As there is no public transportation system that directly connects Truckee Tahoe Airport and the Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe, it is best to drive between the two locations. The trip generally lasts between 14 to 20m depending on what time of the year you are traveling, and the airport has several rental companies in its Arrivals terminal that you can choose from, including Enterprise and Hertz. If you would rather take a taxi, consider using a rideshare service, such as Uber. For a one-way trip in a standard vehicle, the fare will be approximately $25. If you book a private shuttle instead, it will cost around $50 per person. (Prices checked 20/06/19).
