Just returned from a week at the Whistler Village Inn & Suites. I was very upset with the room upon my arrival. I was on vacation with my husband for a week and the only bed in the room was a Murphy bed. I wanted a regular bed. My husband talked me out of changing rooms because of the kitchenette. I would have traded the kitchenette for a bed. Sleeping on the Murphy bed was like sleeping on the floor.
There was a fireplace but it could not be used because there was no wood and no poker/brush/shovel/starter for the fireplace.
The room was a nice size and had a table & 4 chairs as well as a sofa & chair. However, the TV could not be viewed from the sofa. It could only be viewed from the bed.
The elevator was out of order the entire week we were there. I don't mind walking up three flights of stairs but I do mind when I am carrying luggage & skis.
On the plus side - the room was kept very clean. There were fresh towels every day. Housekeeping even did our dishes for us!
It was several days before we could get the heat in the room to a tolerable level. To all you Yanks, 20 - 25 C is room temperature, not 30 C!!!! It turned out that there were two thermostats in the room. One was above the sofa. The other was hidden on the wall between the frame of the Murphy bed & the wall.
There was no Whistler info in the room. I finally found a dinning guide at the grocery store. Although there is a huge binder at the front desk. It contains menus from the restaurants in town. All you have to do is ask & the desk clerk will be happy to let you look through it.
The walls are paper thin. I could hear the Houskeeping staff talking outside our room in the morning. (Our room was near the supply closet). Also the last morning I was awakened at 5 am by the children in the room above running around.
One other plus was that the hotel is about a block from the ski lifts. Contrary to other reviews I found the staff exceedingly helpful & friendly.
The breakfast buffet was cold cereal, apples & bananas, yougert, bagels, muffins, hard boilded eggs, instant oatmeal, bread, croissants, small sweet rolls, juice and there was a waffle iron where you could cook your own waffles. But as other reviewers noted there are only two tables near the breakfast area so I always took breakfast back to the room.
