Great warm cozy place for family skiing
We really enjoyed the suite. Skiing on and off the mountain was perfect. Continental breakfast was good. With the pool and hot tubs available, we recommend staying at the Coast Blackcomb at Whistler for a good family time together.
At $600 per night for a 2 bedroom suite these accommodations had none of the luxuries or even some of the basic features I’d expect for that price in Whistler. Terrible Wifi (mobile data was much better), smallish TV in the living room with no DVD or Blu-ray player, no in-suite laundry. Nothing special about the kitchen, which had Formica counter and old fashioned electric elements on the stove top. Bathrooms were the same as the kitchen. Beds and pillows were comfortable.
Could use upgrade, nice ski in and ski out
My husband and I stayed at the Coast Blackcomb Suites during the 2nd week of January 2018. I have to agree with other posters who have indicated that the property needs upgrades. There were quite a few little tricks and malfunctions that we encountered in our room. The bathroom fan switch only worked some of the time, which meant the bathroom fan was running for almost the entire week. The suite thermostat provided little to no control of the room temperature. Our room was extremely warm for the entire stay, to the point that we were uncomfortably warm and kept leaving the balcony door open to cool down. We noticed little stains on our bed sheets, before and after they were changed. Our room didn’t have robes in it when we checked in so we had to ask for some. There was trick to the lights beside the bed in order to get them to stay on. Another light was hanging by wires. We noticed plenty of dings and marks on the walls and furniture which seemed as if they should’ve been easy enough to fix. Overall, we had the impression that the maintenance at this hotel wasn’t exactly top notch.
That being said, we enjoyed the ski in and ski out offering that the Coast Blackcomb Suites has. The breakfast was decent for a continental breakfast but we didn’t take advantage. We grabbed some bagels and muffins for snacks and made our own breakfast. The kitchen in our room was poorly stocked. There was no decent knife to cut produce and only one pan. It made cooking meals a challenge with the limited supplies. It’s quite far from the village so we made plenty of use of the shuttle system, which was pretty convenient. If you want to be able to walk around everywhere, it would be better to stay in the main village. It was a quiet hotel and good for our purposes, since we weren’t interested in the night life. I don’t think I would stay there again.
We stayed just one night as we had previously booked other lodging and arrived a day early. We were greeted warmly and efficiently! I would have loved to stay the whole time at the Coast condos, so hopefully next time!
Comfortable and convenient ski in ski out hotel
All in all this was a good pick for us as skiing was our main focus and for this the location is excellent; just put your skis on in the morning and go. We were happy to be on the Blackcomb mountain as the ski runs were quieter than Whistler so this was a bonus and skiing back to sit in the hot tub, with a view of the ski lifts, in the late afternoon was perfect..
The breakfast was excellent and plentiful and the hotel was comfortable and warm with helpful staff
The two downsides of the hotel were that the decor was tired and a bit dingy (lots of brown and dark beige paint and dusty looking pictures) and the bus service to and from Whistler town was a bit variable in its frequency. Overall though we would use this hotel again as the convenience and comfort were what mattered to us most.
