When you compare all that Whistler has to offer, it's nice to stay at a place that offers luxury resort amenities so close to the mountain base and Whistler village.
I have stayed at the Westin a few times now, and the service has been excellent. Right from the greeting in the driveway thru to check in to the room, it was a clean and well serviced experience. Quick access to the village and ski lifts makes it a winner.
We used the pool every day. An indoor/outdoor pool, and separate indoor and outdoor hot tubs are quite good. They are small, but if you travel off-season you will pretty much have them to yourself. And an outdoor hot tub in the rain is unbeatable (read: mid-October is the time to visit!).
The Aubergine restaurant is decent. You will find better in Whistler village but it's hard to get away from expensive dinners here. The shops in the hotel are ok, but walking the village is what makes Whistler special anyway.
If you're a golfer, the Whistler course is on the doorstep. It's not Nicklaus North but it can hold it's own. You can't beat the scenery on the course,
The room amenities (junior suites and up) are excellent. Westin's Heavenly bed, a kitchenette that includes an oven, dishwasher, fridge with freezer, microwave, plenty of cutlery and dishes, a decent sized TV with good HD channels, and a 5 foot deep soaker tub are really appointed well. The rooms are cozy small but functional. The plentiful wood decor, cupboards, etc make it feel like you're in a chalet. And of course the mountain is out your back window (if your room faces east).
You'd have to be very critical to find anything disappointing at the Westin Whistler, even if 5 star resorts are the only places you stay.
