Usually we stay on the mountain just off Blackcomb, mainly because we like to ski in and ski out, and because we thought the village would be noisy at night. Nearly every hotel I checked in the Village, said that noise at night is a concern to some people, and the Adara was no exception. I did ask for a quiet room, and we were given a room at the back and far end. A few nights we were woken up at 2am when the bars close, but based on research that was to be expected.
Other than that, the hotel was fine. Not quite as fancy as I was expecting. The furniture in the room is a bit tacky, and even the fire place is not really in the wall, it's just inside a cabinet. The beds were lovely and comfortable though, nice duvets and bath robes, and a nice sized bathroom. With the regular room, the 'kitchen' part is pretty tiny with just a microwave, fridge large enough to put in your own food, french press and very good coffee, but no dishes or cuttlery. If you plan to eat at least b/fast in the room, I would bring a bowl or whatever you will need.
The staff were all very friendly and professional. Hot tub didn't seem to be working, but as we had friends in another hotel with a nicer hot tub, we used that. I did think the hot tub area was rather disappointing for a so-called fancy hotel. The hotel is unique and a nice boutique style hotel, which we liked, but if you want more of a huge Westin-style hotel, then go down the road to the Westin! We loved the location, as it was a bit quieter than other Village hotels, but very close to everything including the bottom of the hill, a nice gym right next door, and despite not being on the mountain, the convenience of being in the Village was rather nice.
