“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We booked three rooms and stayed two nights. The hotel staff was friendly and attentive and patient with our young children. (Especially the hotel dog, Kate!) They put out warm granola bars in the morning and warm cookies in the afternoon. The pool was lovely as was the hot tub.
We went Wed- Fri during the summer and had a great time for a great price.
There were ear plugs in our room but we did not need them at all.
We would definitely stay here again.

We saw a third night free promotion and looked up hotels on whistler.com. Adara was the least expensive. We booked a one bedroom loft. It was clean and comfortable. We didn't hear any noise from the bar and the hotel is far enough off the Stroll so that didn't bother us either. All the hotel staff were polite and helpful. Be sure to talk to the manager for fantastic restaurant recommendations. I wish we got his name.

This hotel is a perfect distance from the core of the Whistler Village. However, it's also conveniently located right across from a bar. And unlike what a previous poster mentioned, I was unaware that they offered earplugs and nor were they offered to me. The room itself was an adequate size but the water pressure in the shower was severely lacking. I was able to enjoy the outdoor pool & hot tub, both of which were clean. Parking is also valet only (or at least I was lead to believe that) which can be a bit of a downside when there are multiple guests checking-out at the same time and you're in a rush to leave. Furthermore, the elevator is exceptionally small so again, with the mass exodus of check-out, it will most definitely be a tight fit. However if all you're looking for is a centrally located hotel at a reasonable price, then you shouldn't have any problems with the Adara.

Many thanks for your review. We are a small hotel and when all our guests check out at the same time it can be a bit hectic. We do our best to make all parts of our guests stay as pleasant as possible.

Needed quick accommodations late last night and came upon Adara hotel. Staff was cheerful and welcomed us and our canine friends even at 11pm. Rooms are spacious, updated and clean. Location is prime but noisy (they even provide earplugs!). Beds were so comfortable it's hard not to have a good sleep. Great place to have a luxiorious but affordable stay in the heart of it all.

Great location in the Whistler village for a great price. Manager Bob and Iain go above and beyond to make sure your stay is a good one. Fruit, water, coffee and freshly made cookies and breakfast bars are made available daily. You are in the village and like any village hotels you might hear people having a good time at night! Kudos to Adara for being pro active to noise issues and providing white noise machines and ear plugs in every room In saying that, we have never had an issue with noise but also like to be in the town center close to all the amenities.

Rooms are modern design and could be updated a little but location, staff and price make this a great place to stay in Whistler Village. If you want 5 star and no village noise, pay the big bucks and stay at the Chateau : )

Room Tip: Ask to be on the east side of the building looking up to Blackcomb and Whistler

Others have said the same things: clean, updated, great location just off the Village Stroll, very friendly staff, etc. Bear in mind though this is Whistler and everything is at a premium, so you also need to consider no free on site parking, rooms are pretty small and sparse although fairly comfortable, no bathtub (maybe some rooms have them?), no view unless you enjoy looking across at other hotels' rooms. It really is a hotel for winter sports where you get up and hit the slopes all day, come back for a shower and then hit the restaurants and bars, and then go to bed and start over. If you want to use the room for evening relaxation, it's not so great - no chairs or couch. For 2 nights in June like we did, it's just fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the bar side.

Thank you for your review. We are the perfect hotel for skiers, bikers and alpine adventures that is for sure, you hit the nail on the head. We do have rooms with more space, thus more comfortable for relaxing after a day of adventure. Perhaps you would like to try a loft suite the next time you come to visit. Be sure to mention that you are a return guest for the best rates.

Ultra modern room including suspended gas fireplace, huge rainfall shower head. Direct access to village stroll. Free cookies, hefty granola bars, coffee in lobby. No breakfast. Very quiet. Parking available on site for a fee or for free at municipal parking lot about 10 minute-walk from hotel. Friendly staff. Super great deal at $83 (mid-week in May).
