Lake Tahoe: New mountainside Ritz-Carlton reopens after spring break

Lake Tahoe: New mountainside Ritz-Carlton reopens after spring break

The Ritz-Carlton Highlands at Lake Tahoe is back from its own spring break. The tony ski-in, ski-out hotel, which opened on the slopes of the Northstar-at-Tahoe resort in December, was shuttered April 19 to get ready for its first summer season.

The hotel, along with its signature Manzanita restaurant and spa, reopened May 10 for spring and summer guests who have stowed the skis and are ready to hike the nearby Tahoe Rim Trail, go fly-fishing at the Truckee River or take a boat ride on Lake Tahoe. Or guests can just enjoy the 17,000-square-foot spa and fitness center or play a round of golf at two nearby courses.

If you think you might want to sample the luxe life, room rates in summer start at $399 per night for a Resort Reconnect package, which includes a room, breakfast for two and a $100 resort credit per night.  (Note that these rates dont include taxes, a $25-per-night resort fee and $30-per-night parking fee.)


The hotel made the news last month after Bank of America filed an $18.6-million default notice against the sites owners, East West Partners, according to a Wall Street Journal blog item and other media reports. Stephen Holt, director of public relations for the resort, said the Ritz-Carlton will continue to operate the site no matter who owns it and that the spring closure was unrelated to any of the owners’ financial problems.
