Give Me a Ritz! And I Don’t Mean Cracker.


It’s no secret among the money crowd that Ritz-Carlton’s accommodations are generally a cut above, literally. The expansive lawns and and perfectly manicured golf course greens at Half Moon Bay shown in photo are cut to perfection. While the Ritz-Carlton California price points vary in the 6 cities where you’ll find these brand resorts in California (Laguna Niguel, Half Moon Bay, San Francisco, Marina del Rey, Lake Tahoe and Los Angeles,) the trade-up crowd can enjoy the taste of a Ritz (and we don’t mean cracker) in the affordable Lake Tahoe mountain resort where we’ve found a room next week priced at $179/night. And if you just want to sample the Ritz flavor but not eat the entire cracker, you may want to check out the events at these resorts. Holiday festivities, special meals, teas, cocktail hours and other such events offer the Ritz experience some hotel guests never take the time to enjoy, but are available to the public.
