The Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe is near the Main lift, above the small village at Northstar. Skiing is tailored to the Beginner-Intermediate at this mountain, and would be a great place for families with small kids to get started skiing. The rooms have fireplaces, comfortable beds, a smallish tv, and huge bathrooms with shower, 2 sinks and a bathtub. They... More

We've been coming here for lunch with the valet parking for years. Today, we did the same and apparently, they now have a policy of not allowing this on Saturdays during winter. With hungry and tired infants in the car, we asked for one exception but we got a "no". We'd have to go down to the village, catch a... More

If 6 stars were possible, I would have awarded them. The staff in every area was exceptional. They are all engaging, thoughtful, helpful and very professional. We were celebrating our anniversary and they made sure every restaurant, spa experience, and bellmen knew about it. They made us feel right at home and very special. The property is beautiful, perfectly located... More

My boyfriend and I recently spent the weekend at this stunning property and are now forced to compare every ski weekend to this one. Property: The property is everything you can expect from a Ritz-Carlton and the convenience of ski concierge eliminates the frustration of lugging your skis and boots around. The room was decently sized and every room has... More

Had a great time at this Hotel. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. Concierge was helpful but when they recommended a trail (sparrow) the directions were unclear and we hiked an hour the wrong way. Need to be more precise with directions. The Spa was great and katie my therapist was amazing. Mazanita was seriously average and I would... More

This was the best hotel we have ever stayed at. Guests are treated like royalty here. The views are amazing as well. The hotel is tucked up in the mountains a bit so it is very private. They had cute activities like corn hole, disc golf, making smores everyday at 5:30 around the fire pit, etc. They had different flavored... More

Fantastic all around. Second trip in six months. The property is great and well maintained. The rooms are very well done, comfortable, clean and luxurious. Joseph, the GM, is very professional, and has assembled a great team. The staff is top notch. High recommend the club level and the suites are large and perfect!!

The hotel is nice as one would expect from any Ritz Carlton. Service was good. We booked the room on the Club Floor. Very nice service and lovely buffet service just about all day long. You really never need to go out for a meal if you take advantage of this level of room. Ski services on site were well... More

I don't think I'll ever feel the same way about staying in a ski hotel again. I've been spoiled rotten and there's no going back. My husband and I snagged a mid-week deal here in December and it really was a fantastic experience. From check-in to check-out everything was perfect. We particularly liked the attention to detail from the 'Ladies... More

Enjoyed five night stay recently in a mountain view king room at this high end resort in the Lake Tahoe area. Room was spacious and comfortable, with a great view of the patio, pool, and slopes. Bathroom was up to the usual high Ritz standards. Service was a bit of a mixed bag. Staff at all levels were effusively welcoming... More
