I reviewed many hotels for Whistler and finally came down to this hotel. So here's how it went. Checkin was a little unpleasant, we first were told that a room was not ready so we were given a room where we shared a door that then split into what appeared to be two ajoining rooms. I called the front desk and asked if the other rooms was occupied, then we would like to move. After a few minutes, someone came up and helped us to our new room. It faced the plaza walk area which was nice.
The place had an underground parking and an attached restaurant, Old Speghetti Works which we just ate at the previous night in Vancouver. The hotel looked out onto the best Italian restaurant in Whister, but pretty much near all the shopping. We stayed Friday night, so we were a little interested in how the party atmosphere faired. Since the walkway is close to everything, we did the Irish Pub for a couple hours which was near another hotel and then back around to two night clubs near our hotel. Couldnt hear the night clubs, but being that close was nice. We had a blasts! In the morning while my wife was sleeping, I strolled to the jacuzzi and shared it with a bachlorette party of girls. How aweful (yeah right). Checking gal was very nice too, had a British accent which I couldnt figure out. One guy at a t-shirt shop told me a lot of Australians vacation here. I couldnt figure that one out.
Great stay, parking underground was seemless. Breakfast, goto Nellis Deli. Do not eat at the restaurants that have the red and yellow umbrellas on the patio Over priced and slow!
