Absolutely love this location, middle of everything. Walking access to the village and the gondola. The room was spacious and clean. By far my favorite place in Tahoe! Will definitely go back here 👍🏽

We stayed here in Mid February. Drive was easy and not too long from Reno. The condos are really nice but pretty sterile. Could use some additional touches to make more welcoming. Like no throw blanket for when sitting on couch watching it snow or watching the fire(we got extra blanket from closet). The fireplaces have glass across the front...

Don't let the price fool you to think you're getting something special. We've been timeshare owners for over 20 years and have seen many properties (in fact, we just came from a competitor's facility, Marriott in South Tahoe) so we have a lot of experiences from which to base our comments.... -Overall property- average. Nothing special. We had to change...

Taking this trip was our best decsion. Everything from the time we checked in to the time we checked out was great. We had everything we needed in walking distance, ski lift, shopping, resturants, activities and adventures. It was a couple get a way but cannot wait to come back with family as well. Great for both types of trips....

This is a decent place within Northstar. Great location within the entire setting of the Northstar village.. Limited parking becomes an issue. Timeshare talks. After being to many talks with other places, they seem to be priced reasonably, but yealry fees are too much.

Will stay here next time. It is a very nice place. We didn't get to ski due to extreme snow storm. But we enjoyed just being there. Even the tram ride was closed. Wish we had more days to stay so we could have went snowmobiling

First the good: Situated at the edge of Northstar, and with its own gated parking, the location could not be better. In addition, the amenities are first class - Viking appliances, advanced dishwasher and washer/dryer, and marble everywhere. Felt nicer than at home! Front office staff were friendly and helpful, and the gondola was literally less than 100 yards away....

I came here on a snowboarding trip with some friends and we had a blast. We arrived late on a Thursday night and had to use the courtesy phone to get the front desk guy but that was no issue. Check in was quick and painless. Guest parking was located in an underground garage so that was rather unexpected. I...

We visited Norhtstar last year for an owners update. I had been a quite happy owner until they managed to upset me. During our stay we purchased additional points ($15,000 worth or so) and as a thank you for our time during our presentation and I'm guessing our purchase we were issued a voucher for free trip to Hawaii. this...

We booked this hotel for the last night of our ski trip at Lake Tahoe. We had picked the hotel because of the high ratings and for the ski-in ski-out location that would allow us enough time to ski the morning before our flight out of Reno. On that morning, I stood up from the breakfast table and cut my...
