Aava is in a good location in Whistler - across from the main plaza area with restaurants, shops and a supermarket, and 5 min walk to the lifts - BUT not on the main walkways so it's much more quiet than accomodations located on them. It's kind of like a less expensive W Hotel and has some stylish touches in the public spaces and rooms. Everything is kept neat and tidy and the staff is uniformly friendly. The rooms are not large so I'd suggesting upgrading yourself to a corner queen/king room with a sleeper sofa which offers extra windows and space for a little more $. You get a minifridge, but not a microwave, which would be handy as there's no real lobby area/bar/restaurant in the hotel. If you cross the street at the hotel entrance there's a White Spot restaurant that can provide room service for lunch and dinner and has pretty good food. Of course, being in Whistler means you're a 5 min walk from dozens of eateries at all budget levels. There's a pleasant outdoor pool/jacuzzi area with mountain views and a decent gym facility, but you can't bring drinks/snacks to them which is a let down seeing as there's no bar for apres ski. The hotel could use some design help in the lighting department - the bathrooms are full of harsh energy saving bulbs while the room is underlit with too few lamps and low wattage bulbs - at the very least they should reverse this so you look better in the bath and you can read in bed/chair! Easily I'd stay here again and hope they only continue to improve the overall look of the place.
