Coast Blackcomb Suites at Whistler
Can't fault it
We have just spent 2 weeks at the coast and can’t fimd any fault with this hotel. The rooms are large and cosy, have everything you need (hairdryer, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer) there is also a laundry room on each floor which is excellent. $2 to use washer and same for dryer. Very happy not to be taken dirty clothes home to wash. Rooms cleaned daily. Flat screen TVs in living area but can’t tilt and turn to watch in bed. Breakfast very good plus free Starbucks coffee all day long. If you complain about this hotel you must just me a nasty miserable git. Book you won’t be disappointed ( only lack of snow to moan about here)
Booked this hotel & was not disappointed really clean, with great rooms that were really well equiped, we had a room at the back so had no disturbances to our sleep. Great to be able to use the pool & jacuzzi’s for free with extra towels. The free breakfast, which is practically unheard of, unless you spend silly money, was really good you’d have to be a complete moaner not to appreciate that, there’s everything continental with two hot options, porridge or waffles. A truely ski in ski out location, with a free bus shuttle to Whistler village right outside the door which runs all day until the early hours which is great. Would definately recommend.

The project is in a very nice Location. The views are great and therefore is truly ski in and out. A free breakfast in the morning is ample very convenient. Plenty of room in the rooms and each with a full kitchen. Staff is friendly and helpful. Whistler is very nice with lots to do.
Stayed here in Jan 2015 in the middle of the season at pretty much peak time. Reception is always staffed, always clean and tidy. Rooms are clean and well equipped. Breakfast is pastry and cereal etc.. But perfectly suitable and you are allowed to take it back up to your room, which is great.
Courtesy bus stops literally outside the front door and runs like clockwork every 15 minutes.
Ski in/out is literally that, you walk out the rear door and you’re on the slope, and literally come back to the same place at the end of the day, really well positioned.
You can walk into town although it’s easier to just brave the slope and walk down there, only for the fully able though, it’s much steeper without skis! Alternatively, you can walk down the road, turn left at the first intersection and then take the path next to the Aspens. Again you’ll have to contend with icy footpaths as they aren’t treated, no one expects to walk anywhere from here obviously or they’d have built a path and treated it!
The Coast suites do the little things well, coffee and biscuits are complimentary at the end of a day on the slopes in reception. The hot tubs aren’t too hot and are outdoors, which makes all the difference..
The ski storage is in the rental shop and on the direct route outside to the slope so, really well situated.
An all round fantastic place to stay. You’ll already have made your decision about location before you get here as in town versus slope side, so if you pick slope side, you won’t go wrong.

Great hotel in an excellent location!
My boyfriend and I stayed at The Coast for a week mid January, we chose this hotel due to its slope side location and its hot tubs, and as we weren’t fussed about being in the village.The Coast didn’t disappoint us at all, I emailed prior to our trip to organise a birthday cake in our room on the first day which was left in the fridge with a lovely card signed by all reception staff, so great service there!
We travelled from England through Crystal Ski, who are always great! The transfer from Vancourver airport was pretty straight forward and about 2hrs – although we slept through most of it! The transfer back to the airport was better as it was light and you could see the amazing scenery!
We stayed in room 515, overlooking the side of the hotel so no real view apart from the forest but still pretty. The room was a good size with a small kitchen with kettle, toaster, fridge and dishwasher so you can cook or bring your breakfast back to the room. The lounge area had a sofa bed, arm chair and gas fireplace – controls are behind the tv as we had to ask where they were!
Good bathroom, always had a good hot water pressure and the hairdryer was powerful!
There wasn’t a safe in the room which was odd, we left iPads and passports in a bag on the dining room table for the duration of the trip and they were fine but you can leave only passports with reception for free.
There is a free continental breakfast included from 7-10am downstairs in the lobby area which was good, it had toast, bagels, huge waffles, porridge, fruit and cereal – there were paper plates so you you can take it back to your room which we did every day as there were only a few tables and it got quite busy.
The hotel is in a great location right on the slopes that leads to the wizard chairlift, you ski for about 20 seconds to the lift! It was the best ski in/out location we’ve ever stayed in, you can literally ski to the back door of the hotels ski shop!
We would walk down the slope at night to the upper village and walk past the Merlin bar onto the signposted footpath that takes you to the main village and brings you out opposite the Pan Pacific/ Holiday Inn and the restaurants/ bars/ shops are on the other side of the hotels, it took no longer than 15 minutes at a gentle pace to get from the the hotel to the village. The number 5 bus goes from the bus station by the blackcombe gondola every 10-15 minutes from first thing in the morning to late at night and stops at The Coast which takes about 10 minutes – we got the bus back each night as I didn’t fancy walking back up the slope on a full stomach!
If you want any recommendations for places to eat in whistler, the Mexican, Mongolie Grill, The Keg and The Brewhouse are all great and very reasonably priced and huge portions!
There was free wifi throughout the hotel on all devices, the mountain also had free wifi in each restaurant which was good!
There is a laundry service on each floor which we used, it was about $5 in total for the washer, dryer and powder.
The hotel ski shop is really good, you can rent skis etc from there but as we had our own they would store them for us for free each night and you take your boots and poles to your room.
The pool facilities were amazing, probably the best thing about the hotel, such a great surrounding! There is a small pool which is warm and two huge boiling hot tubs all of which you can see the wizard chair lift from over the fur trees, you also get bathrobes in your room and towels from the gym area inside.
If you are going to whistler and don’t want to be in the village amongst it all then this hotel is perfect, the staff were really helpful, the room and facilities were great and the location is superb – we will stay here again!
