My family (6 of us) daughter and fiancee, son and girlfriend, husband and self, just got back from our 1 week trip to the Constellation at Northstar. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo, and have to say, it was phenomenal! Staff is the best and you get the benefit of the Ritz Carlton services and spa!
Specifically, rooms were spacious, washer dryer terrific, and beds comfortable (floors of bathrooms heated)! TVS top notch (flat screen with direct tv..wish they had the NFL package as we all play Fantasy Football), and Viking appliances.
Ski valet (Bryan and new man from Cuba) were the best! Fitted our boots, walked us to our skiis, if they could, they would have skiied for us!!
Only two issue (ice maker did not work the whole time) but staff brought us ice at will which speaks highly of the team. And that gondola to the village is ridiculously slow!! It is even a bit scary as we got stuck a few times so I don't think I'll use it next time..too cold to be stuck..Ritz should spend a few bucks and upgrade so their clientele doesn't get stuck or freeze to death in the process!
In closing, warm chocolate chip cookies, best staff we have ever had at a resort and fantastic views, skiing and accomodations makes for an A++++ experience..don't miss it.
