We just returned from the Ritz Tahoe (Truckee) and loved it. This was a great hotel for families with small children. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but the front desk gave us some tokens to the arcade which kept the kids busy for a bit. Heated pool was about 80F, we small mid day while it was snowing. This hotel is also very dog friendly, lots of guests and dogs relaxing by the fire place.
They do a daily scavenger hunt and a find the bear activity for kids. They also do a nightly 4:30 smores roast at the fire pit for guests, my kids loved all the activities. People complained about the limited food choices but we had no issues with the food choices, the lobby/living room menu was great. sit around the fire place order some chips, dips, snacks perfect for a mid day treat.
We loved our room too, great views, very clean, quiet (expect for our own kids).
we will definately stay again when we go, Truckee is also a much easier drive (3.5 hrs) from the Bay Area as Tahoe takes a bit longer.
