Coast Hillcrest Hotel
Excellent Staff, Half Hotel reno'd
This is a great hotel in revelstoke, The staff do an excellent job of taking care of you and the restaurant produces really good food. It is a short drive to the mountain or town (5min), but with Selkirk tangiers Heli Ski based out of here if you plan on skiing there is no better place to stay.
Note: as of December 2014, the hotel is in the process of updating. they have completed the third floor only, (comfort rooms) and have stopped construction until the low season again, so there is no noise or any other issues, but the third floor is new so if you can try to stay there.
Very good stay
We liked: renovated room with a balcony, very good service and welcoming staff, nice bar, good food, large living room with fire place and lots of action at the end of the day, when skiers come back from their heli skiing day with Selkirk Tangiers. We wished: the hot tub on the upper balcony would be bigger and let you bring your drinks.
New Reno, Impeccable customer service.
First let me state that the customer service here is phenomenal. Their attention to detail, even special requests, is unparalleled.
They’ve recently renovated their rooms., new laminate, TVs, bathrooms.
my favourite hotel in Revelstoke, hands down.
Everything is good; just good
Stayed here, as most everyone, to ski and heli ski and this hotel is the “base of operation”. Everything is good about the hotel – not outstanding, but good and I would return.
The rooms are clean, modern and nice. Comfy beds and pillows. I had a room facing the parking lot – very small window and no view, but I was in my room very little so it didn’t matter. It was very quiet. Good shower and water pressure.
A few odd things – like not having any soap in my room (noticed when I was already in the shower) and the safe in my roof did not work. But they brought me soap and I didn’t use the safe.
The lobby is nice and the fireplace inviting. The bar is good and I agree, the drinks are on the high side. Not a great wine list. Bar food is quite tasty. The food in the main dining room is good, not great, and sometimes just ok.
You definitely need a car as friends of mine had to take a taxi into town – their shuttle was out for maintenance with no back up. Strange.
Overall, I enjoyed the hotel and would return. Would ask for a room facing the mountain/town next time.
1 week stay with friends
2 friends and I stayed for 6 nights as part of a heli ski package run out of the hotel. We found the hotel clean, staff were accommodating, food was well prepared and tasty. The only dull spot on our stay would be the overpriced drinks at the hotel bar.
