We just returned from our two night stay at the ritz with our family of 5. I have to be honest, my expectations were not great. Two years ago my husband and I spent two nights here and is was not so memorable. We decided to give it another go, but this time with our 3 children. We decided to... More

I will divide my review into Great and Needs Improvement. 1. Beautiful Location and hotel itself--just know that it is pretty isolated from the rest of the conveniences. A drive to a CVS (in unlucky event you get sick) is good 20 minutes each way 2. nice large rooms. We had a suite connecting to a regular room--perfect arrangement if... More

Loved my stay here. Ski in ski out resort with a boot and ski check. No need to tromp from your room in ski boots while holding your skis. They took my skis and boots upon arrival and they were waiting for me at the front door when I left. To ski each day you walk to the boot check,... More

We stayed one night here during Spring Break. We have never been let down at a Ritz Carlton. It is my favorite place to stay when we travel. Extremely romantic & secluded. The fireplace was fabulous & the huge bathtub was very relaxing. We did not get a chance to ski, but it looked great from the window. The gondola... More

We accidentally discovered the Living Room restaurant when we were skiing at Northstar. What a beautiful hidden surprise! You can sit at a large table, or a small table, or in sofas with a coffee table, or in a large leather easy chair by a fireplace. The food is interesting (wild boar nachos?) and reasonably priced. The staff is unbelievably... More

Spent 4 nights at this property on the club level. People make a huge difference to us when we stay at places at the high end, and this was the big difference between this and other properties, most notably RC Bachelor Gulch. There were stars like Hassan Shabbaz, but more often folks were average for high end hospitality. We love... More

From the minute we pulled up to the Hotel until we sadly drove away our every need was attended to. If you are just using the ski valet day service or spending the night the Ritz will surpass even the most veteran traveler's expectations. The Ski Concierge staffed by the lovely ladies from South Africa was especially welcomed as they... More

A stay at the Ritz Carlton Tahoe (Truckee) is well worth the short drive from San Francisco. The hotel sits up on a hill overlooking NorthStar village. Beautiful vistas can be seen from almost all of the rooms. The Deluxe rooms are quite spacious and the furnishing comfortable. They have fireplaces in each room. They offer connecting rooms for families.... More

This was our return visit after staying here last winter. We upgraded to the club level and I highly recommend doing so. For the additional fee, you get breakfast, lunch, snacks including wine n beer n dessert. The food is terrific here and the service was excellent, especially Billie at the club. Overall, the rooms are ample sized, the staff... More

We went to ski over Thansgiving. Hard to get answers to simple logistical questions because every staff member had a different answer. A few staffers stood out, but lots of people who just did nOt know the mountain, town or hotel well which resulted in some frustration on our part. Gondola into town was not open yet and there was...
