I had a long weekend here for a family birthday, we had a 4 year old child with us and from the moment we arrived were treated as treasured guests with the utmost attention to detail wherever we went. The Ladies and Gentlemen of the Ritz Carlton are truly wonderful, welcoming and friendly without being obsequious and they really made... More

While the the real purpose of the property is a ski in-ski out winter destination, we had a very enjoyable summer visit. We stayed in the club which is highly recomended. The lounge is beautiful with a great view and the dedicated concierges will make your visit relaxing and worthwhile. Our suite was very nice with fireplaces in both bedroom... More

It's an outstanding hotel, well designed and situated. The lounge and backyard patio are great places to spend an afternoon. The staff are absolutely first rate. And the food and rooms are excellent also.
