“Good condo location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We stayed here on a Groupon purchase, so the value was very good for the money. We had multiple reasons for being in Whistler: seeing friends, attending a wedding, and getting in some mountain biking.

Pretty much saw the same front desk staff person the entire time we were there, and she was very helpful (though I imagine a little overworked). Check in was efficient, though you are given a lot of "stuff" (key cards, fob for entry into bike locker and pool area, and towel cards). We noticed that every door had a different entry system so I assume each owner installs what they want.

Parking was $15/day, which we were informed of in advance of our arrival. Bikes are not allowed in the condo (fair enough--they can do a lot of damage) and there is a bike locker in the parkade. We did not park our bikes there because it is not in the gated area of the parkade, so we didn't feel it was as safe as locking it directly to our car. Bike thefts are not uncommon in Whistler.

Suite was a standard 1-bedroom condo. Wireless was available, kitchen appeared to have everything you would need (we didn't use it much). We were on the main floor so we had to make sure to lock our windows and balcony doors before departing, but that's pretty standard. Hot water was intermittent, but we didn't find it to be an issue given the warm weather so we just let the front desk know when we checked out (they said they would look into it). They accommodated a late checkout, which was very helpful as I believe standard checkout time was 10:00 am.

Location was great, especially since we don't like to be in the heart of Whistler. We usually stay on the Blackcomb side because it's a little quieter, especially in the evening. A short walk along well-travelled trails gets you to Whistler village quickly, and even faster on bikes.

Didn't try the pool but it seemed to be busy most of the day.

This is not a place you would stay if you're looking for pampering, valet parking, housekeeping, and turn down service. This is a "do it yourself" kind of place, and it is likely popular with families, groups of friends, and those that like to cook their own food while on vacation. We've stayed here in winter (for skiing) and in summer (for mountain biking) and the location really can't be beat. Otherwise, it's a good condo, of the standard you would expect with short term rentals.

The King size bed was (2) singles squished together and they kept separating all night and it was bed you would expect at a lower class hotel. There was one fan for the entire suite, which puzzled me as it was 30 degrees during the day and very hot into the evenings. There was also a very ignorant security guard that was recently hired to "watch" the pool. I have stayed at the Aspens more than 70 times and my family owns in the complex. All in all a failing grade for this visit and would not rent this same unit again.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review, although when I read this I was a little saddened, we wish that all guests of staying with ResortQuest Whistler at The Aspens on Blackcomb have a exceptional experience!

With regards to the bed and fan, I have sent this request to our maintence department to discuss with the owner replacing them.
As ResortQuest would love to be able to have a say with regards to the strata staff, unfortunately that is decided by the strata company in place and the owners. I will however pass on your comments to them.

On behalf of The Aspens on Blackcomb we do hope that you come back and enjoy our hotel, and if you have any questions in the future, do not hesitate to contact me.

Our stay in Whistler was very good. Our accommodation was ideally situated. There was easy access to many services and facilities. Our confirmation was good and it contained good directions and instructions. We enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here with a group of families attending a kids baseball tournament hosted by W histler. The room was very large, we had a 1 bedroom suite with a king bed in the bedroom and a pullout queen size in the couch. Our room was located across from the pool and we were able to access from our large sundeck. The weekend we were there happened to be the warmest day of the summer so far, so great to have the pool so close...but not so great in the room without Air conditioning. It was 35 celsius during the day and we couldn't cool down the room at night. Needless to say we had very little sleep the 2 nights we were there.
Other than the AC issue, not a bad hotel to stay in.

On behalf of ResortQuest Whistler we are glad that overall your stay was nice, we do understand the frustrations with regards to no AC and have put this forward to the council of owners to look at, as all the units in most of the hotels in whistler are privately owned it is the owners final desicion as to what amenities are put in the hotel.
We do thank you for your feed back and hope you come back again soon

We booked a 1 bedroom, it was roomy enough and had all the amenities including the kitchen and fireplace. Great location just above the Fairmont overlooking the lift. They had a tv in the main room but none in the bedroom. Overall great value.

This summer was the scene for a ski race camp at Whistler. We have stayed on both the Whistler and Balckcomb mountains. They have different advantages. We stayed at the Aspens as this is where the race camp prefer, and the ski storage, meetings etc all take place here. You can do better - Le Chamois is right opposite the lift and well appointed!

Room Tip: We had a 2 bedroomed apt on the 3rd floor. This location is perfect - the accommodation is average...

We stayed here as a group participating in the Tough Mudder competition in June 2012. We had a two bedroom, two bathroom, unit with full kitchen. The full-kitchen really helped cut our dining-out costs down as we ate over half our meals in the unit. There was a pull-out couch in the living room as well, and a small dining area. There was a covered deck off the dining area to enjoy some fresh-air. This was a great place to stay and I think we'd stay here in the Winter to ski as well because of it's proximity to the lifts. It is also an easy walk to restaurants. We ate at Milestones which is only about a two minute walk down a trail along the ski area. It is also only about a 20 minute walk into the Whistler Village via trails, although you can also stick to the roads. The unit we had was well stocked with towels, blankets and pillows. The unit as a whole was in great condition. We were not in the room much, but they did have a radio, tv, dvd player, etc. The complex does have a pool and hot-tubs which always had people in them, but we didn't try them out. We had to pay $15/day for parking through a machine in the lobby. When we arrived we had time to park, drop our gear in our room, and straight to the lobby to buy a parking pass (total of about 15 minutes), and by the time we got back to the parking area, there was a guy walking around handing out tickets. So when you arrive, make sure you get your parking pass immediately! Overall a great stay, and we'll likely stay there again.

Room Tip: Make sure you buy a parking pass as soon as you arrive!

Thank you so much for your review.
ResortQuest are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the tough mudder.
We do thank you for the information on the parking attendant, and will mention this to the start company who deals with the parkade and parking tickets.
Again thank you and we hope you had fun in the tough mudder.
