We are just winding up another great 2 week stay at the Northstar Lodge. We had beautiful weather and great ski conditions for most of the trip - Vail Resorts invested heavily in snow making equipment this year and it really paid off for those who weren't scared away by the weather reports.
We have been coming to Northstar for over 5 years. We have stayed at large new homes and older condos in the Northstar area, at many of the newer condos in the Village and have spent time with friends in the new homes near the Ritz Carlton.
The Hyatt has become our home base when at Northstar though. We love the mix of luxury accommodations, great service and convenience that only the Hyatt provides. The rooms are beautiful, there are chairs and a fireplace on the balcony, the beds are the most comfortable beds in the village, they have a great flexible living/dining room setup and beautifully integrated kitchens. The Sierra Room on the 1st level has lots of great hang-out space with couches, fireplaces, a TV, dining/game tables, a light breakfast buffet on the weekends, a ski equipment room, an outdoor fire pit and a gorgeous view of the valley and village. The Tahoe Mountain Club pool, jacuzzi, game room and workout facility is next door. The Highlands Gondola at one end of the Hyatt takes you up to the Ritz Carlton and the top of the Big Easy lift.
The Hyatt is a great base for anyone who wants quick access to skiing, wants to be close to the action in the village without being on top of it, wants daily cleaning or has lots of kids and friends to keep happy and coordinate.
The service at the Hyatt is superb - Joey and Meagan heard that my 6 year old lost her 2nd tooth on a chair lift and that I needed a $1 coin and a color printed letter from the Tooth Fairy. They called all the businesses in the village and had several coins for me to choose from within 2 hours. Joey even called me to remind me! They are keeping the extra coins on hand for the next Tooth Fairy visit to the Northstar Lodge...
