It was great to be in a place where there was so much snow and cold weather. We even did the snowmobile thing. Woohoo. The staff and property were outstanding. A must do for married couples. Children would enjoy this property as well. Hoping to return for a visit in the next 3 years. God did a perfect work here.

What a wonderful full service hotel. What you would hope for in service and amenities. Sometimes when you stay at a five-star hotel, it is disappointing when your not wowed. This is not one of those. Beautifully set into the mountains with well landscaped grounds that fit the area. The staff is exceptional. From the moment the valet takes your... More

Recently booked a trip through my Marriott Rewards points to get away for a quick romantic weekend with the wife. The Ritz Northstar is a beautiful place and we were welcomed at the car by an exceptional bell staff and seen the the front desk. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed. We enjoyed roasted marshmallows on the deck that... More

The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe is truly an amazing resort at Northstar. The staff is top notch and will ensure you have a great vacation. It's the little details that make the difference between staying at the Ritz and other hotels -- from the warm welcome, staff remembering your name and the extra care they take in house keeping that really...

One of the most beautiful Ritz Carlton hotels we've ever stayed in. Perfectly appointed rooms , excellent staff, fabulous spa and gym and great food! Not to mention you are right on the ski slope and tons of great hiking trails Can't wait to return!!!

We held our daughters wedding here in November 2013 and it was fabulous. The facilities and staff are accommodating, friendly and the site is gorgeous! The dinner served in the Ritz Ballroom was delicious and each person at each table was served at the same time by white gloved waiters. Many guests commented on the comfort of the rooms, the...

One of the best traveling experiences ever. Ritz Carlton is known for great facilities and service but they exceeded our expectations. Although this is a fairly large resort with top notch amenities, it was the personal touch of the staff that set this trip above and beyond other trips. Here's a few examples: The general manager, Joseph, was stopping by... More

We have been touring California and wanted to visit on our trip Lake Tahoe. We booked the ritz Carlton, Lake Tahoe and our biggest disappointment when arriving there after a 5 hours drive the hotel is NOT located at the lake. While booking this hotel you should be informed that this is a place out in the nowhere and not... More

Ritz Tahoe is the best hotel that I have stayed at in a long time. The staff is top notch with out being intrusive. Once you arrive at the resort, there is no need to leave. From hiking trails to delicious fruit and herb infused water, they have everything covered. This place is one in a million, please stay here!

This resort is one of a kind! I can't believe I had the opportunity to stay here. The spa was fabulous and I could have stayed there all day. The ability to relax outdoors was great as well as the indoor relaxation area. The pool is one of the best in the world. Having been there in July, I was... More
