After much anticipation, the $300 million Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe opened in December 2009 at the family-friendly Northstar at Tahoe resort. The 170-room stone-and-wood lodge has a cavernous 17,000-square-foot spa with earthy treatments, such as a crushed pinecone exfoliating scrub and a cedar-oil massage; a buzzworthy restaurant, Manzanita, where San Francisco star chef Traci Des Jardins’s comfort food comes with a French twist (duck meatballs, wine-braised short ribs); and a pampering “mountain valet” who will manage your gear and escort you to the snow.      

Room to Book:

Mountain View Club Level rooms are a great value, with a dedicated concierge and a seemingly endless parade of hearty fare in the private lounge (if the sweeping slopeside views, deep-soak marble tub, and gas fireplace weren’t enticement enough).

Insider Tip:

Give kids a sense of adventure from the comfort of your room with the Indoor Campout program. The hotel will set up a small tent in yourguest room with a featherbed, camp light, nature activity book, and s’mores kit that they can enjoy downstairs around the fire pit.
