We did really enjoy our stay in Tahoe. We arrived around midnight because of a delayed flight and our bags were lost. The front desk associate walked us to our room and delivered us all the nighttime gear we would need, toothbrushes, combs, etc. The location is perfect for ski-in ski-out. The rooms are wonderful with the fireplace and the...

Kids and me enjoyed the drinks and the snow flakes. Must go place. Customer service is over the top and the food amazing. The mountain stretch was a muscle killer but had a very good time with the whole family.

We had some apprehension of travelling so far for Spring skiing. But there was no reason to fear in that I experienced some of the best snow of my life during the 2017 spring season. Contributing to the trip was the very good Ritz Tahoe. Surpringly relaxed with very friendly staff. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. The ski valet...

Had a wonderful time during Soring Break in he snow at Notth Lake Tahoe. The restaurant had fantastic food. Would have loved to stay a little longer. Gondola ride to the village made access to snow sports very convenient.

Wonderful place to stay and great location. Customer service is exceptional and the food amazing. If everyone in the world was as nice as the staff of the Ritz Carlton we would truly live in a different world. We will be back again!

Convenient location on the mountain at Northstar. Beautiful property and friendly staff. Welcoming to children and dogs. Ski concierge made rentals simple to get your gear and head straight to the mountain.

Everything was outstanding except the Jacuzzi, which was not working. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Valet parking is extremely expensive - would be nice if they would reduce that a bit for guest of the hotel to make it an option for business travel

Went for three days, was having such a delightful time extended it to five and had my dog join me. Unexpected two feet of snow made the skiing fantastic. The hotel was great, the level of service for skiing was amazing (don't want to ever go back to lugging my gear around), and the hotel was so welcoming and friendly...

My husband and I paid for our adult son and his family to stay at the Ritz Carlton in March. The cost of the rooms were well over $2500. We stayed with our daughter and her family nearby. We arrived to pick up our son and parked in valet. We were told they would not bring our skis down to...

This was our first visit and the staff and hotel exceeded our expectations! We loved the ski in and out and the ski valet is awesome. So nice to ski out and in and to not have to touch your skis! The team in the ski shop were also awesome for rentals and lift tickets! We enjoyed dining for breakfast...
