We did not stay at the Ritz but we played there as we were at the Constellation at Northstar and they share services. Staff is superb and the food at Manzanita is terrific! Mitchell treated us like kings/queens (manager of Manzanita) and we would go back just to eat at his fine restaurant as long as he was still there!
Fitness club perfect and the spa staff/facilities A+++
ONLY ONE COMPLAINT..PLEASE SPEND THE MONEY TO UPGRADE THE GONDOLA FROM THE HOTEL TO THE VILLAGE!! IT GETS STUCK A LOT AND IS TERRIBLY SLOW AND SCARY AS A RESULT. FIX THAT, AND PERFECTION EXISTS AT THE RITZ.
