Exactly what you'd expect at a Ritz Carlton. Friendly, accommodating staff. Beautiful room. Wonderful ambiance. This was a fall trip, so no skiing this time around. Just plenty of time to enjoy the hotel and chill. Thumbs up!

The resort has beautiful views of the mountains from the rooms and there is easy access to the North Star Villlage for dining, shopping, and ice skating. We didn't ski there this trip and the February temps were unseasonably warm at around 60 degrees each day so I cannot comment on local skiing. The resorts were making snow for skiers... More

Even though there was little in the way of real snow, the slopes were just fine with the man made stuff. The hotel is perfectly located, just slightly out of the way from the main slopes, which decreases the traffic of skiers not staying at the hotel. Very nice facilities, awesome fireplace in our room, incredible views. The food was... More

We just returned from a four day ski trip to the Ritz Carlton at north star. I was extremely disappointed with the service and the hotel. Anytime anyone in our party asked a question the answer was always no. Whether we were asking for small kids robes, a special drink or anything simple- the staff was always extremely rude and...

We arrived at the hotel and found the place to be amazing. If your able to stay on the club level, do it!. The daily food offerings and wine/cocktail selections were great. We have stayed at many other Ritz club levels in the past but the Lake Tahoe Club far surpassed the others. The rooms were very spacious and we... More

Got a Priceline deal, otherwise I'm not at this type of place. Especially with my furry Siberian husky. Exteriors are ski lodge beautiful, with wonderful paths and activities. The rooms are spacious and bed was luxe! And comfy. My dog and I ate a very tasty 20 dollar burger with no complaints because, it was just that good. Shower was... More

I had been to Truckee before, but this was my first trip to a Ritz-Carlton, ever. I had heard service this hotel chain is known for their exceptional service. I found this to be true. The staff went above and beyond to make our company's stay excellent. I don't believe we heard the words 'no' or 'sorry' the entire trip.... More

The greatest thing about this hotel is just how easy everything is when you are here. Easy to get ski equipment and instructors; easy to get to the slopes; easy to find a comfortable place to sit and have a drink; easy to find a place to eat; and easy access to the Village at Northstar. If you can swing... More

Can't say enough of the property and the Ladies and Gentleman of the Ritz Carlton who work at the Hotel, it's thanks to people as Rogelio Cruz the concierge at the Club Level who anticipated every need we had that create the Ritz Carlton Experience. Northstar at Tahoe is beautiful by itself and the Ritz is located midmountain, with the... More

It's a Ritz and you get the Ritz treatment. The rooms are well appointed, have fireplaces, lovely bathroom amenities and the beds are fabulous! Service is great. Pros: service, views, ski in/ski out luxury, location, ambience, great programs and features for kids and families. The lounges are welcoming and cozy. There is a free gondola from the Ritz resort to... More
