TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, mid-mountain on Northstar-at-Tahoe, has re-opened after some spring cleaning.
After what the resort characterized as an outstanding first season, the hotel closed briefly for maintenance and conversion to summer operations on April 19, before opening back up as scheduled on Monday, May 10.
and#8220;It is very common for luxury resorts in similar mountain destinations like Aspen, Jackson Hole and Beaver Creek to close when the Ski Resort closes,and#8221; said Steven Holt director of public relations in a press release. and#8220;Our spring break was no different, we aligned our operations with that of Northstar Resort mountain operations.and#8221;
The Manzanita restaurant inside the Ritz and the spa also reopened May 10, according to the press release.
Last month, Bank of America filed a notice of default against the Ritz-Carlton Highlands’ owner East West Partners to the tune of $18.6 million. Officials from East West said they were working with Barclays, a British banking and investment company, who also put up $10 million in East West’s chapter 11 filing on other area properties.
