2/10 Poor

If the hotel is going to claim to be a luxury establishment and charge accordingly, then they need to renovate the interior and hire/train representative staff. The guest rooms look worse than a motel and the Manzanita restaurant looks likes a diner at a rest stop. From the old orange carpet which look like it is at least 50 years old to the old furniture with chips, breaks, and scratches the rooms are totally aesthetically displeasing. Room service takes 1.5 hours. And you have to call again for utensils, salad dressing, etc. One staff member, NIELSON in particular irked us to no end with his ineptitude, lack of sincerity, and all around terrible attitude. I repeat, his name was NIELSON. He is not worthy of working anywhere in the hotel industry. He is damaging the brand and reputation in so many ways. He needs to be terminated immediately. At check in, he gave us wrong directions and sent us on a wild goose chase all over the hotel to try to get to a an unimpressive event called "Smores and Stories". He also denied us the upgrade given to American Express Centurion cardholders by stating that the hotel was fully committed. He didn't even check the availability before giving us this obnoxious answer. By the way, the next day we inquired with the Guest Services manager and he upgraded us immediately. Most egregious of all was Nielson forgot to order my niece's birthday cake when the purpose of the trip was to celebrate her birthday!

8/10 Very good

The rooms decor and furniture are very dated with brown grimy looking carpet and brown and mustard colors. Doesn’t feel fresh and current.

10/10 Exceptional

We always talk about going somewhere else for our annual ski trip but end up going to the Ritz for the last 6 years. Unpretentious hotel, beautiful view, great service (Carol delivers our bfast every year and we love seeing her, always treats us like kings and queens) and sooo convenient to go ski whenever we feel like and go back to the hotel with no hassle. We were not crazy about the food at Manzanita this time, but absolutely love everything else!

10/10 Exceptional

The staff at this location go above and beyond and most of them are yearly staff that haven't worked at the hotel prior. Many come from out of the country and are extremely customer service oriented. So great to see the Ritz investing in their staff. Wish the Manzanita was open earlier but food was excellent.
