We stayed here for two nights on the last leg of a two week trip through Northern California. This was not only one of our favorite hotels on our trip, but it also goes down on our list of places to which we absolutely must return! This beautiful hotel is located in Truckee not far from Lake Tahoe on a...

I have been fortunate to stay here numerous times. All I can say is - wow! This place never ceases to amaze me! I feel like the service gets better each time I come. From valet, to check in, to the amenities, to housekeeping, the list goes on and on. I love this place!

As we drove the meandering road leading to The Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe we began to relax knowing that we would soon be greeted and welcomed to our home for the next few days. This was the fifth year in a row that our family has stayed at this property over the Thanksgiving holiday. As in years past, we experienced...

We did not stay at the hotel but visited the Manzanita restaurant to grab some drinks at the bar. I definitely plan on staying here going forward. Not only is the location and hotel beautiful (there is a free gondola that takes you up and down from and to the main village area), but the service was excellent. It's hard...

Lovely property set at mid mountain at Northstar. Ski in/out right from the lodge or just lounge by the many fireplaces. The property is well run, the staff attentive to detail and excellent food choices.

We had a wonderful time at the Ritz Carlton. An unparalleled customer service experience. We managed to go rent an ATV in Nevada, enjoy our first couples massage, and horseback riding. Best Cinnamon rolls ever at Cafe Blue. Terrific Room Service as well!

As others have said what makes this place stand out is the service - they exceeded expectations in every way. The standard room we had was a good size (not huge), but with every possible amenity. We also needed a humidifier and this was readily made available. The decor was not to my taste, but neutral enough to be perfectly...

We have stayed twice at the Ritz at North Star, using the Club Level both times. We absolutely love the spacious rooms with cozy gas fireplaces, and best of all coming to lunch and cocktails at the Club level. Staff are amazing, the restaurant is delicious (although predictably very expensive) and the ski-in ski-out access is fantastic. We never got...

THE VIEW FROM THE MASSAGE ROOM WAS AMAZING! One entire wall is a window that had a magnificent view of the snow-covered mountain. Such a wow factor! Then, there were the two fabulous massage therapists! We walked out totally relaxed, and ready to take advantage of the awesome spa facilities. The steam room, sauna, jacuzzi, and relaxation room added to...

With a slope-side location on Northstar’s “Big Easy” run, the ski-in/ski-out access can be enjoyed by skiers and riders of any level. When you are ready for a day on the mountain, simply head down to mountain concierge where the ski valets will assist you with your boots and escort you to your skis and poles waiting on the slopes.
