U.S. News Review

Sweeping mountain vistas and rustic furnishings are just two of the many reasons why guests are drawn to The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Others include fantastic customer service, decadent dining options and a sumptuous atmosphere. Sitting on the shores of Lake Tahoe in Truckee, Calif., this Ritz allows visitors prime access to regional sports like skiing and golf. As for the hotel itself, on-site amenities include a tranquil spa and several gourmet restaurants (including the French-Californian fusion restaurant Manzanita, headed by celebrated chef, Traci Des Jardins). As far as lodging goes, recent guests rave about the large rooms, comfy beds and beautiful setting. Rooms and suites adopt a mountail lodge feel with stone fireplaces, wood trim and beautiful views. Guests generally loved their stay here, complimenting the deluxe decor and friendly staff. However, some visitors lamented the $35 resort fee, especially given the hotel's already high room rates.
