Great stay in Whistler.....
This was my 1st time skiing outside of Europe. I travelled in a large group with my wife, parents and friends to celebrate my 30th birthday. We arrived at the hotel around 8pm, the reception staff were very pleasant and quickly checked us all into our rooms.
This is the biggest difference to skiing in France – instead of a pokey chalet room with not enough room to swing a cat in, you have a reasonably large room kitchenette, dining table, lounge area and even a balcony. The kitchenette is kitted out with everything you’ll need if you want to make your own meals..oven, microwave, kettle etc,
This was another big plus. In the morning, ski gear on, walk down to ski shop, tell them your room no, collect your skis, out the door straight onto the slope head down to the Wizzard Express.
Once finished on the slopes, straight off the piste, back in the ski shop door, hand them your skis, head up to your room…. job done.
They also offer the usual ski servicing which they will get done for the following day, v reasonable prices.
Hotel staff very pleasant. I also need to add, the people who work on the slopes, piste staff, restaurant staff etc are so polite…. the complete opposite to the majority of french resorts I’ve been too. Even the poor lad stood in blizzard conditions on the Tbar lift at the top of Blackcomb Mountain… always greeted me with the same enthusiasm each and every time.
Honesty speaking…. opinion will be divided purley based expectation. I am someone who eats v healthy 24/7, so I like to let myself go on holiday, 2 weeks of muffins and waffles was something I was more than looking forward too …. let me tell you the waffles are great! There is plenty of variety, boiled eggs, cereals, toast, etc. If you go expecting a full cooked Hilton breakfast, you’ll be disappointed. Seating can be an issue just because of the volume of guests and the limited number of tables…. however, the hotel have no issue in you taking a tray back to your room…. I even took a few extra muffins for a mid morning ski snack
A big bonus….. after a days skiing!. Dressing gown on (supplied by the hotel), mix some Gin and Tonic in a plastic bottle, grab a plastic cup and head on down to the tub….. classy I know.
Its great place to chat to other guests, and generally relax and unwind.
There is a shop in the hotel selling crips, drinks etc reasonably priced.
Bus service runs straight past the hotel, which takes you into Whistler Village.
The hotel has wifi which is fine for catching up on social media.
Would I stay again? …….Most definitely
Loved this spot. Only one drawback. Super noisy in hallways and air con would of been nice but we did have a balcony door we left open all night and a fan so it was fine. Everything else was great from staff to cleanliness and great breakfast and outdoor area with pool and BBQ area. Fire place and full eqipped kitchen.

Comfortable and spacious
The breakfast buffet was great. We enjoyed it on a weekend that was quieter so it was exactly what we wanted – a nice little getaway. the Rooms are slightly newer than most of the economical hotels in Whistler. They were also affordable! The bed was nice and firm, and everything was very well kept and clean.
The best place tostay in Whistler
A wonderful experience from arrival to departure. The staff, the music in the halls, the pool and the breakfast. All wonderful. I visit whistler a few times a year and always stay at this hotel. It makes the trip just perfect.

The hotel is very nice. The breakfast is very good. It has ski in/out. You can rent all de ski equipment. The room is comfortable. It has a dishwasher and the room is warm enought. The people who works there is very kind. And skiing in Whistler is the best thing I have ever do. If I could come back, I will stay here again. The relation price/quality is good
