I have to admit to becoming a wimp skier as I get older. I like comfort, convenience and pampering and the Ritz Carlton hits on all three nicely. I took a small group from my San Francisco office up to the resort as a reward for their great work on a project. Not all were skiers or snowboarders, but everyone,... More

I remembered seeing this hotel the last time we visited Northstar and thought, wow, this direct access to the lifts and the perfect location right on the slopes really can't be beat. So, when it was time again to find the right accommodations for our Tahoe trip, Ritz-Carlton was the first place I looked into! And it did not disappoint... More

I know this may sound rather corny... but our time at Northstar over the past few years has allowed us to secure about a billion memories together! And although nothing can possibly ever make this dad a better skier (somehow, I seem to get worse as the years go on) I have become a better father by having this precious... More

Wow!!! Beautiful! I was here for a work function and didn't get to play within the resort due to time restraints. The room was very nice. Others raved about the beds but I found them too soft. Fireplace was a nice touch as was the huge bathtub. It would have been nice to have bath salts or bubble bath available.... More

The outdoor areas and the spa are at the same level as well. Its not a cheap hotel, but you get what you pay. 5... More

The Ritz in Tahoe is absolutely stunning. Service beyond compare! The views are spectacular regardless of which side you are on. We were there for a corporate meeting and the facilities and catering staff were top notch. The guest rooms are amazing. Each night you sunk right into your bed. Extra touches like marshmallow alogy was also fun. I highly... More

We enjoyed our stay here for a ski trip. The rooms are nice, spacious enough, and clean. The ski in and out location on the mountain is really good. All of the staff on the property are very nice. The mountain concierge is great, as is the equipment rental staff. We really liked the fireplace in the room and the... More

My son, wife and I were at the Tahoe Ritz for a 5 day medical conference. Overall a great experience that I will gladly repeat! Nice room with fireplace and beautiful view of snow covered pines and ski slopes. There was a problem with the air conditioner and fan but was fixed after a few efforts.

Such a beautiful property at a great resort. I've been visiting Lake Tahoe since I was young. It was a bit expensive but the ambiance was amazing. Make sure you allow some time to explore the village and nearby Tahoe City when you are visiting!
