Everything about the hotel is understated yet comfortable. The exterior while driving in may be a bit of a shock, pretty unremarkable in every way. The service is great, as expected. Entering the hotel, it feels quite small too with all of the public spaces on the first floor in one giant room which is visible all at once. The unobstructed views in the lobby of Mt Yotei and foliage are quite serene and beautiful. The gym is small (just a few machines and weights), the public bath is clean and sufficient, our guestroom had a warm feeling vs being white and austere. A room facing Mt Yotei is quite dramatic and it's nice seeing the scenery change with the sun and weather patterns throughout the day. There are two restaurants on property which was fine for a short stay. The Yukibana lunch menu is quite good since it's easier to eat on-site than go hunting for food elsewhere. In-season there are more dining options at the nearby Hilton and Niseko Village shopping plaza (walking distance). Other dining options may be 10-20min away by car. There is a walking trail and bike trail accessible just outside the hotel. We had dinner at the Park Hyatt one night and that property has a much different feel, with 5-6 restaurants, 25m pool, karaoke, big sitting lounge areas etc. It felt a bit like a fancy W or Vegas hotel. I'm not sure if I'd specifically come here again for regular vaca but it's a good option for skiing (ski in-ski out) and it has access to two mountains (whereas Park Hyatt, for instance, takes an extra trip to get to other mountain options). We visited a couple weeks after Japan "re-opening" so I think things still coming up to speed, spa menu was limited (good shiatsu). Can hear deer calling now and then in the area. Overall comfortable and easy stay, not over-whelming, snooty or stuffy.

Hotel's Favourite
Niseko is very very hit and miss on all sorts of levels (Aspen it ain't, and Klosters it never will be), but we do love it here. Higashiyama Ritz-Carlton Reserve is the second of the uber-brands (after Park Hyatt, a gigantic project) to launch here, and it's a very modest affair. From the outside it looks like any 3-star apartment block in any Japanese suburb. Really very underwhelming. It only has 50 rooms, and we only came for dinner but, oh, how lovely it is. The entire ground floor is taken up by the common areas, lounge, reception, bar and restaurant. It is not exciting in any way, rather it is reassuringly bland and luxurious, all in the very best possible taste without offending anyone at all. We, 2 adults, 2 kids, had a lovely dinner, which cost us 500 dollars for a glass of OK champagne each, a bottle of OK Sauvignon Blanc, and a burger each for the kids, and really very good scollops, local organic pork, prawns and so on for us adults. The service is, of course, fantastic. It is the Ritz-Carlton. There are standards. Friendly without being effusive, efficient without being cold. Just perfect on every single level. There is better food to be had in Niseko, for a lot less money. But there is also a lot worse food to be had in Niseko for a lot more money! Niseko is hit and miss. So here is the value of a very good brand like the Ritz-Carlton: you will rarely be ovewhelmed, but you will never, ever be disappointed and you will always, always have a great time. That, to me, is worth paying for.
