Rest, Recharge, RITZ & Repeat

Reviewed 2 december, 2021

Spent two glorious nights at the Ritz Carlton in early December. We enjoyed all of the beautiful amenities including dining at Manzanita restaurant which was absolutely exquisite from starter to desert. Familiar dishes are presented with new twists, both in presentation and flavor, in a lodge-inspired space with floor-to-ceiling windows, an open kitchen, lively bar and chef’s table. I would like to give a special shout-out to Jeremy at check-in, he was very courteous and helpful. Can’t wait to return.


This is a beautiful hotel, but overpriced.

We had spent a week in Lake Tahoe/Truckee area enjoying the outdoors for hikes, bike rides, and going all around the lake. There are many great places to eat from casual to fine dining. While I appreciate the upscale you can expect at a Ritz, the dinner prices were over the top and there is food as good or better elsewhere in the Truckee area. Thank goodness we stayed somewhere else at Northstar. Unless you are into paying for the ability to say you ate at a Ritz, skip it.


Mountain Resort Luxury Experience & Guest experience at it’s finest!

Wow!!! What a great experience and beautiful resort. From the moment you walk into the property you are greeted with a glass of champagne. The check in and welcome from Nielsen and Barry was exceptional. They gave us great recommendations for the area. Hospitality was top notch and professional! The next day on our way out to explore the area Barry was kind enough to recommend Eagle Rock hiking trail. The views were incredible. When we got back to the resort we had a scrumptious amenity in our room. After a long day we decided to stay in and have dinner. Joey our server in the living room bar recommended some great options from the menu. He was awesome with great conversations. We decided to have dinner twice at the hotel because of his amazing service. The weekend getaway at the Lake Tahoe Resort was exactly what we need to relax and enjoy a slower pace from our workweek. The hot tubs, bath tubs, fireplace and comfortable and spacious rooms are all a plus! Can’t wait to come back and see my new favorite resort. The people who work there definitely take pride in what they do to make a guest feel welcomed. Loved every moment of our stay. Thank you Barry, Nielsen and Joey. Shout out to everyone who works at the resort!


Excellent, pet-friendly hotel

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend last February with our small dog and our stay was a very enjoyable one. From check-in to departure day, the staff were wonderful and accommodating. Our room was pretty standard, yet comfortable and we were spoiled with an amazing view. Access to Northstar was very convenient too, thanks to the gondola that directly takes to you to the town center.

Terrific Tahoe mountainside resort!

The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe is situated partway up the mountain in the Northstar Resort complex in Truckee. It is a ski-in/ski-out property and offers a gondola down the mountain as well to The Village at Northstar which offers additional dining and shopping options. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite and had plenty of square footage, comfortable furniture, two bathrooms, large televisions, a lot of storage space, and a fireplace. It also had multiple desks and had a great setup for anyone needing to get work done. The room design was a little underwhelming aesthetically (in fact the design of the hotel overall had a bit of a sterile ski chalet vibe to it). The main lobby has a massive two-story fireplace that is a standout element, but otherwise I felt that this style has been better executed at places like Four Seasons Jackson Hole and some of the luxury ski properties in Park City. The food we enjoyed at the hotel was excellent – particularly dinner at Manzanita. The prices are outrageous (e.g., $46 for Bucatini), but at least the food was high-quality, and the dinner service was polished. There was also in-room dining available and a coffee shop that was open in the morning and had a wide selection of pastries and beverages for guests who didn’t want a full meal at Manzanita. The Ritz-Carlton has a main pool, a large spa with its own, more serene pool, bright and spacious gym and plenty of lounging areas on the mountainside of the building (with a few fire pits for roasting s’mores as well). There is also an arcade on the lower level and plenty of public art to take in. Service was one of the standout aspects of our stay especially the transportation team, front desk (shout out to Spencer who provided stellar service throughout our stay) and dinner servers. There was a consistent warmth and professionalism that was pervasive in all of our interactions and parts of the experience that can be clunky at other hotels (valet to front desk to the room with luggage) were executed perfectly. The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe was a great addition to our West Coast itinerary. While it clearly most shines in the winter as the premier ski-in/ski-out luxury hotel in the Tahoe area, we found it was a relaxing and beautiful place to stay in the off-season as well.
