This property is gorgeous and such a great location for business or pleasure. The staff is fantastic and friendly and the rooms are beautiful as well as comfortable with spectacular views. The food at the Manzanita restaurant is delicious with great menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Blue Bottle coffee bar that serves coffee and pressed juices is really... More

So I was there for a girls weekend with my friends and I did observe a few things I liked and some I did not. Rooms were pretty nice and had all the amenities - not sure if value for money is the right word but I was expecting a bigger room to start with. The surrounding area is amazing... More

Beautiful resort, typical Ritz friendly staff, sparkling clean and beautiful art throughout. Great entertainment in the lobby Friday evening. To get picky: They need some smaller bite sized appetizer options in the lobby in the evening. Also, a "coffee shop" type alternative with extended hours would be nice. Given that valet parking is mandatory, the price was steep. Also, I... More

As is frequently the case, my wife and I wanted to have a restful, calm and cool get-away at a great hotel that is pet friendly. The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe filled all of these desires. It is a great venue, settled midway up the mountain at Northstar resort. The views of still snow-covered Sierra Mountain peaks were gorgeous, especially during... More

We arrived late last Friday night (midnight) after a fairly arduous drive. From the second our car pulled up at valet, until the moment we left, we experienced 6-star service. The only glitch on the trip was a bevy of little moths in our bedroom (which we attribute to nature and a slight lack of attention by housekeeping during room... More

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! I do it every day, sometimes more than once... That aside, the property is stunning!... More
