We went for a weekend to celebrate my birthday. The staff were welcoming and friendly. I even got a complimentary birthday cake when the reception staff realised it was my birthday! Our suite was very comfortable and beautifully decorated, with a wood effect gas fire in the lounge area. The scenery was spectacular. We really liked the little touches such... More

The service, as at any Ritz was stellar. I was there for a combined business/couples retreat and have only positive things to say. Good food, great service, friendly staff at the bar. Everyone helpful. Rooms are a bit on the small side, but having a fireplace was a plus. Amazing views from our tiny balcony. Pools and hot tubs are... More

This resort defines what a luxury ski resort is and should be. I could go on and on but it is stellar. All the positive things that the other reviewers said is true. I've stayed at over two dozen different Ritz and Four Seasons hotels and resorts and this place is solidly in my top five all favorite. Go. Spend.... More

Based on my less than stellar experience at some hotels like the St Regis at Del Mar I tweeted to the Ritz Carlton on my ride from the airport to the hotel on whether they had a coffee maker available. They replied immediately that they did and asked what types of coffee I would like. I replied. Upon arrival I... More

Located at the Northstar Ski Resort, this hotel defines the term "ski-in, ski-out". But add the service of a Ritz-Carlton, and you have a whole new experience. The quaint Village at Northstar is the main resort at the base of the mountain. You can drive up a winding road to get to the Ritz about a third of the way... More

I stayed here during the Thanksgiving weekend with my daughter and son-in-law. We enjoyed every moment of our entire two-day stay. The staff was great and each and every one of them made us feel special. The Manzanita restaurant was perfect for breakfast. The spa was so relaxing I didn't want to leave. I highly recommend this lovely hotel!

My wife and two daughters, ages 7 and 11 went to this hotel over Thanksgiving week and loved our stay. I am a Platinum Member and Ritz Carlton Credit card holder and there are some perks with that, but not enough to speak about. We stayed in a Club Level Suite overlooking the slopes, pool, etc. The vibe of the... More

This was my first stay at a ritz, so I had pretty high expectations. The staff was fabulous! Very attentive! The property is very nice! I really was expecting a bit more just because it was a ritz, as far as the room size and decor but over all very nice. The spa was very nice and massage therapist fantastic!!... More

We go there during the winter time for sking / snowboading. Kids friendly resort, NICE, FRIENDLY staff, and courtestsy. Complimentary gondola take you down to the village for shopping and a few restaurants at the Northstar village. We love the hotel cafe easy grabing some small lunch or snacks with reasonable price. The out door heated swimming pool and hot... More

We spent 3 nights in this beautiful lodge to start the 2014-15 ski season at the Northstar Ski resort. To the friendly and quick valet guys that welcomed us as they were already expecting us, to the check-in/front desk employee that assigned us that gorgeous view from our King suite, to the bell boy that carried our tons of luggage...
