A beautiful well maintained luxury hotel with amazing staff. A superb mixologist on the bar who can make up a cocktail on the spot based on the sort of thing you like. Rooms spotless and very comfortable. And the bath is the deepest I've ever seen. Bliss. It's definitely a hotel I will come back to for pleasure. It's also... More

We stayed at Ritz for the weekend for a conference and took our family to get pampered at Ritz Concierge level. We had a great time getting pampered at the concierge level for 2 nights, with personal attention from the concierge supervisor Matt and all the staff. The food at the concierge club lounge was sophisticated and specially made, we... More

We had a gorgeous suite that was really spectacular. Lots of space, tons of closet space. Two beautiful bathrooms and a view toward the ski slopes. Great location. But the food service was absolutely terrible. Every time we ordered from room service there was a problem. One morning for breakfast it was over an hour for delivery of oatmeal and... More

This resort may not be on the beach for a summer trip, but it is on the mountain and offers great views. Rooms were very clean and up to what you would expect for a ritz Carlton. This has to be the best hotel in terms of quality in the area.

I got everything I expected from the RC brand. Bespoke service and tremendous facilities nestled in a picturesque mountain location. We were very happy with our one bedroom suite on the 4th floor. We added lounge access which was located on the 5th floor with panoramic views. We particularly enjoyed tea time with scrumptious nibblies and Champagne/Prosecco. Selections for breakfast... More

The location, rooms, decor and staff was great here. Club level food/drink and staff were superb. They even have a "marshmologist" to teach how to do smores. Would highly recommend to family, friends and business associates.

The staff of the Ritz is extremely accommodating. Loved the work out facility and our room. However, the restaurant was closed for a private event, leaving In Room Dining out only option for dinner on the property. All other cafes and restaurants closed before we arrived at 4:30 pm. In Room Dining was average at best. We ordered 2 Cesar... More

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and had a great stay. We had a corner room with great views. Customer service was excellent as were the amenities. The resort had tons of activities like s'mores at night, patio games, and nearby hiking trails. Had a great dinner at Manzanita which has an extensive wine list. Hotel was pretty quiet... More

We stayed at this resort for four nights. Overall, this property would receive an excellent rating if it were not for the exceptional costs for every service. The staff is incredibly accommodating and very friendly. Most days, we were at the adult pool by ourselves...the advantage of traveling off season. Disadvantages included that the shops and even coffee were closed... More

We have a family of three: 2 adults and a 5 year old. We specifically chose this resort because it was billed as family friendly with the Ritz Kids club and activities.
