Our ears perk up when we hear about a luxe hotel debuting a new suite. Imagine our excitement, then, over The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe’s new Sugar Pine Suite. The accommodation is the largest single-level suite at the resort and includes four bedrooms (two of them master suites) and four bathrooms, as well as a flexible media room, which can also be used as a fifth bedroom or den (it has a Queen sleeper sofa). Note: Each of the bedrooms in the Sugar Pine Suite boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, Juliet balconies, radiant-heated floors and Jacuzzi hot tubs in both master bedrooms.
At an expansive 2,363 square feet, the suite has all the privacy a VIP guest could ask for (think separate entrance and elevator). We think this suite is great for a family wanting to get away on a ski vacation. The space includes a large, state-of-the-art kitchen with granite counter tops, Sub Zero refrigerator and wine chiller, dishwasher, Wolf range, double oven and convection microwave. Note: The hotel can arrange for a private chef to put together an in-suite dinner (because who wants to cook on vacation!).
Other Touches: The suite has a large hardwood-floored dining room and living room with vaulted ceilings, a gas fireplace, flat-screen TV and a six-speaker integrated surround-sound stereo. The suite also includes a small office and washer/dryer for longer stays.
Note: Continental breakfast is included daily for up to eight guests as well as s’mores and hot chocolate by the fire pit nightly. There are also complimentary ski valet and mountain concierge services. To book, luxury travel advisors should contact Director of Leisure Sales Jodi Demko (email@example.com; 530-562-3015).
