Coast Blackcomb Suites at Whistler 2-8-16
Very average. poor continental breakfast, unreliable internet access, difficult to connect and intermittent.
Problems with cable/remote control. hunting for a channel was time consuming and frustrating. Remote did not match cable box. Access to the ski run is perfect.
Great ski in and out hotel!!!
Great location for skiing (and guessing walking/biking etc in the summer). Great out door pool and hot tubs. Our 2 bed suited was large, had a fire, good kitchen amenities, free shuttle bus into town, friendly staff, rooms kept very cleanf. Great for self catering and families.
Would stay again 100%
No room safes, small safes at reception, complementary breakfast was good but no meat, could do with a bar at least but it is a self catering hotel so no major issue.
One of the best locations in Whistler
Fabulous ski-in-ski-out resort. 5 min drive from all station amenities but so close to the slopes. Highly recommended for families with small kids that won’t go to the restaurant every night but want to be as close as possible to the slopes.

Perfect location, helpful staff and well equipped room
The hotel has a ski hire shop that virtually sits on the ski slope to Blackcombe. You can also walk ~30 meters up the slope and ski across into Whistler.
The hotel is a little dated but still comfortable: and it’s ok to walk around the hotel with ski boots on after dropping skis off at ski rental shop daily.
Staff are helpful and friendly. Hotel includes a small shop, pool, a few hot tubs but does not have a bar or restaurant.
Breakfast is a little limited and does not change daily: waffles, cereal, toast, banana, apples, apple juice, orange juice, water. The breakfast rooms get very busy 7-8am and congestion would be helped if the hotel had a more open plan layout (rather than three rooms for breakfast).
Bedrooms are well equipped and there are also laundry rooms on floors: do it yourself or hotel can do it for you.
Walking down the slope takes about 8 mins to Blackcombe; 15 mins to Whistler. The road route is much longer. Free and regular bus is regular and fast.
Car park under hotel.
Hotel encourages sustainable practices but the maid would turn on the dishwasher even if only six glasses had been used (which appears to be a practice across the hotel). Suggest they save money and resources by replacing dirty glasses and washing used dirty glasses in a central dishwasher.
Ski In Ski Out Lodge and Pet friendly!
Every year we travel to Whistler Blackcomb for our pre Christmas holiday. Nothing feels more like Christmas than being in the mountains and playing in the snow. This Hotel has the best ski in ski out. The skis are kept with the valet and literally you ski 20 steps from picking up your skis. The rooms are very clean, with a rustic feel. Fully equipped kitchens, fireplace and deck. Ask for slope side and you will see the runs on the mountain and overlook the 2 hot tubs and pool. Bathrobes are provided which is nice as the last place we stayed in did not provide those. We did ask for a 2 bed 2 bath as we were 2 couples. We have stayed here before and had them make the 2nd twin room up for a king but they said they did not do that so we were a bit puzzled. There is great free bus service that comes every 5 or 15 minutes right in front of the hotel and takes you right to the Main Village in Whistler in about 5 minutes, very easy and convenient. The free breakfast is okay, you make your own toast, they have oatmeal, yogurt, some fruit, hard boiled eggs, cereal and a manned waffle station. This feels more like a lodge than a Hotel. We will definately be back. Matt at the front desk was great.
