5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Great customer service, nice facilities, pool, sauna & hot tub with a view. Very close to village.. Very helpful and considerate staff. Would be nice to have a breakfast service, but unfortunately they have no kitchen or restaurant. But you're so close to village that you'd barely notice.

Close to gondolas and chair lifts. Very close to restaurants and shops. Good area for storing ski gear. Stayed in a two bedroom suite. Large, lots of room. TVs in all three rooms. Modern washrooms and decor. Whistler is expensive and the hotel was no exception. We had a lot of fun staying in Whistler and at this hotel for four nights.

This hotel is right at the entrance to Whistler village and the proximity to the village centre (less than 5 min walk) makes it a good value choice. Clean, comfortable, spacious rooms with small fridge, safe and robes. Honestly I didn't expect robes at a 3.5 star hotel but there they were...nice & soft too! The hotel is planning on opening a restaurant across the lane so that will be welcome as there is nothing onsite as far as room service, bar or a snack shop, just snack machines. Everyone seems to comment on the pool and hot tub and I'm going to do the same. What is with the floodlights? Not a relaxing light. Ever. Aava, if you changed that and covered the rolled up blue pool cover with a weatherproof fabric, hiding it while people are at the pool that would make all the difference to the look and feel of this area. Other than that a very solid choice in Whistler.

Not ridiculously over the top - real modern day boutique ski hotel experience. No need for anything more. Pool is a bit small but the room made up for the slightest deficiency in teh facilities. Great staff - extremely friendly and personable.

Overall, a great hotel. They could have more amenities and offer more discounts, but the service was excellent. They have an online concierge service which was very useful in the planning of my trip. Will definitely stay there again soon!

Stayed just before Christmas 2013 for some snowboarding action. Overall, had a great time both at the hotel and at Whistler. Just the two of us, but got a big room with two king sized beds and grateful for free wifi (something every hotel should offer)!!

Pros:
- Good location, only a few minutes to the village and a few more minutes to both Whistler and Blackcomb gondalas
- Free wifi!!
- Excellent front desk staff, always helpful
- Hot tub!!
- Decent sized room
- coffee machine
- Ski / snowboard storage area
- Very reasonably priced, especially for that time of the year

Cons:
- No in hotel restaurant (although lots of choices in Whistler, I find it nice to have breakfast before gearing up and hitting the slopes)
- Rooms felt a bit worn down
- Small bathroom
- House cleaning wasn't always that on top of things
- Bed a bit soft
- Walls a bit thin, so could hear other guests
- Small hot tub!!

However pros outweighed cons.
