We just returned from a four day ski trip to the Ritz Carlton at north star. I was extremely disappointed with the service and the hotel. Anytime anyone in our party asked a question the answer was always no. Whether we were asking for small kids robes, a special drink or anything simple- the staff was always extremely rude and...

We arrived at the hotel and found the place to be amazing. If your able to stay on the club level, do it!. The daily food offerings and wine/cocktail selections were great. We have stayed at many other Ritz club levels in the past but the Lake Tahoe Club far surpassed the others. The rooms were very spacious and we... More

Got a Priceline deal, otherwise I'm not at this type of place. Especially with my furry Siberian husky. Exteriors are ski lodge beautiful, with wonderful paths and activities. The rooms are spacious and bed was luxe! And comfy. My dog and I ate a very tasty 20 dollar burger with no complaints because, it was just that good. Shower was... More

I had been to Truckee before, but this was my first trip to a Ritz-Carlton, ever. I had heard service this hotel chain is known for their exceptional service. I found this to be true.

The greatest thing about this hotel is just how easy everything is when you are here. Easy to get ski equipment and instructors; easy to get to the slopes; easy to find a comfortable place to sit and have a drink; easy to find a place to eat; and easy access to the Village at Northstar.

Pros: service, views, ski in/ski out luxury, location, ambience, great programs and features for kids and families. The lounges are welcoming and cozy.

We visited this hotel in early December and have only good things to say about our stay. Our suite overlooked the slopes and had 2 fireplaces. Staff, facilities and service were impeccable; and dining options, though a bit limited, did not disappoint.

The Ritz-Carlton Lake Tahoe is at the upper end of a Four-Diamond / Four-Star hotel. The facility is quite nice, the location is perfect for skiers, the amenities are nice, and the property is definitely kid friendly. However, beware if you're traveling around the holidays - because it is kid friendly there will be lots of kids and it will... More

We have stayed all over Tahoe throughout the years from Squaw Valley to Heavenly. If you are looking for a five star hotel that is ski in/out, look no further. We have stayed at the Ritz multiple times over the years and it never disappoints. It is one of the most expensive places to stay in Tahoe but well worth... More
