Myself and two friends stayed in this hotel the night of June 22nd as we were in town for Tough Mudder. The hotel is about a 8 - 10 minute walk from the village which is good. It's close enough to walk to but far enough away that you don't have to listen to screaming drunks outside your room until 3:00am.
The hotel and rooms are clean, comfortable, wi-fi accessible, and the staff is excellent. We had called the front desk to ask about a cot and one was brought to our room within 10 minutes. There are also towels available at the pool / hot tub area. I didn't eat in the restaurant so can't comment on the dining experience, but it is right inside the hotel if you don't feel like going out. If you're coming to Whistler and want a hotel that's got more to offer and a quiet place to sleep with excellent service, this hotel is definitely for you.
Despite this hotel being wonderful, it is an expensive place to stay. We paid $300 for one night. In addition be careful when you turn on the TV. We had turned to the music channel and were greeted with a message stating we got 15 minutes of music for free after that we would have to pay. 15 minutes came and gone and there was no prompt to purchase music, it just shows up on your bill the next day. I had brought this issue up with the staff and the charge was removed without a hassle.
Also, my two room-mates ordered one "double" drink each ( 2 drinks, 4 shots of liquor) via the pool-side waiter, which came to $44 for the two drinks. My friends say the drinks were delicious but felt the $44 price tag was a little steep. Just be careful that's all!
All in all a great experience at a price. I hope you find this review useful.
