The Ritz-Carlton in Northstar Lake Tahoe is everything one expects. A luxury hotel with impeccable service. The mountain location is also gorgeous! The hotel offers a spa retreat and two heated outdoor pools. Lovely for personal pampering. In the winter they offer ski gandola services that take you rifht to the ski lift. You get what you pay for.

Just spent three nights at this extraordinary mountain lodge. You have to pay a price for this stunning location, stellar service, and classic, comfortable design. And that includes a hefty parking fee plus a resort fee. But it is so worth it. Ritz Carleton over delivers. You feel like you are staying on your own private mountain. The public areas,... More

From check in to check out - fabulous experience! Beautiful resort. Staff could not have been more accommodating. The club lounge had wonderful food and drinks. Fresh blends of juices each morning. The staff in the lounge were loaded with detailed info about hikes and excursions. Dinner in the Manzanita restaurant was spectacular.

... But I knocked a star (or whatever it is) off because I really objected to being charged $30 a night resort fee and $39 a night for somebody parking my car (I'm a really good driver and more than capable of parking my car!

We went hiking and took the gondola. Breathtaking. the restaurants in the hotel are fabulous. Love the bar setting inside and outside. The pool/spa area could not have been more lovely. This is one of our favorite places we have ever visited and can' wait to go back.

My family and I stayed for five nights in a two bedroom suite, and really loved everything about this hotel. From the top notch customer service, to the delicious food at Manzanita, to the spa that will blow anyone away, this hotel was one of the best I've ever stayed in. The gondola ride to the Village at Northstar is... More

I stayed at the Ritz-Carlton with my family, we booked two rooms and payed for "club access", which allows you to enter a secluded lounge area, where you can choose from free snacks all day and a buffet of food put out at meal times. The lounge offers a relaxing area to meet up and to sit and enjoy the... More

In the morning, your ski equipment is waiting for you and you are ready... More

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at anywhere--definitely in my top 5. I stayed in a standard mountain view slopeside room.The room was very comfortable, well-appointed, and well-maintained and cleaned. My room was directly above the restaurant (Manzanitas) but I did not hear any noise. The staff was friendly but not officious. The proximity to Northstar... More
