On most of my stays in Whistler I am not at a hotel so this was a different experience for me. The Summit Lodge was a sponsor of the bike course (which was fantastic) that weekend I decided that it was a good option for the weekend. Upon arrival the cheerful staff welcomed me and did a fantastic job looking after my needs. The room was clean, bright and had great windows and a little patio that I enjoyed. Hotel ammenities and services were all good. One challenge is that it can be loud at night. Some of the rooms face towards the new Whistler Park where they play live music and have celebrations. I personally enjoyed the Reggae jam and it did end fairly early so you weren't kept awake late at night. A side note - the hotel is super dog friendly!
