“Felt like being in your own suite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

The First Tracks is a building hotel / chalet style up market suites, right opposite the gondola in Whistler Creek, the little annex to Whistler Village which has had millions pumped into it and now offers peacefulness, a top notch supermarket, Starbucks, a few shops and a few pubs / restaurants (though some, plus the gondola, are shut out of season).

The Lodge was superb, a large suite with modern facilities including kitchen and a great gym / pool area too. The cycle path walk of 4km and bus back was a great way to pop to Whistler in the evening, though the room was so good we cooked for 2 nights. The only negative was a propensity for horrible energy saving curly lightbulbs which we changed for old style ones of our own due to the way the new ones affect our health.

All in all we enjoyed our stay. Great rates out of season and good negotiation by them to knock a bit off and ensure we stay longer.

Stayed September 2012, traveled as a couple

We wanted to stay at Whistler Village and just couldn't find a nice 2 room suite open for our friends and us ,anything available charged extra for the other couple(it's a two room suite?)and they all charged for parking.We called a reservation line that dealt with all hotels in the area,had a fantastic girl names Kylie who recommended First Tracks Lodge,we really weren't sure as it wasn't in Whistler Village.Wow are we ever happy she suggested First tracks Lodge,only a 5 minute drive to the village,AMAZING and very large clean rooms,it had a deal which made the room a super great deal but it also included free secure parking....will never stay in the village again.Whistler Creekside was was beautiful,quiet and had everything we needed,Can't wait to go back

It's hard to add to the reviews already posted as I agree with their comments. This was one of the nicest places we're ever stayed. We enjoyed being a few miles away from the action of Whistler village.

We stayed there end of Aug/early Sept with kids (7 & 9). Great hotel/condo with amazing amenities - perfect sized pool for kids as well as jacuzzi for families and even one for only adults. So nice to stay in Creekside, away from touristy Whistler Village. Room was very spacious, kitchen was fully equipped and nice size balcony. We are definitely staying there again next time we visit Whistler.
Con - the wooden blinds and door ledges were coated in layers of dust and two lights were burnt out over the island.

When I booked it I didn't realise that this place was not in the village. It didn't matter one tiny bit. As the resort was quite (beautifully so) we got an upgrade. I love upgrades. We were given one of the condos on the fifth floor. OMG. As the wife and I said, if this is condo living then whern can we move in?
Fantastic flat with high ceiling, everything you could need including dishwasher, washing machine, well kitted out kitchen (only thing is you have to lean across the hobs to get at the controls) pots pans, knives etc all there for you. You even get a balcony to sit out on. There is a supermarket across the road and liquor store as well. If you want to see people you can go into Whistler which is 3 minutes away. I am sorry we only booked in for 2 nights, I could have stayed a week.the flat wasa steal @£110 a night
When you look at what Whistler has done as it has grown instead of that cess pit Banff then you can see who go it right and who got it wrong.
Brilliant brilliant place to stay

If you don't need to stay in the center of the "action", this is the place. All the other reviews speak the truth, For $140 a night, we stayed in a 940 square foot one bedroom/two bath condo with den. Jacuzzi, three HDTVs, deluxe finishings and furnishings. Staff was casual, professional and friendly. Early September mid-week and the village (Whistler Creek) was all but deserted. The main village is only a three minute drive up the road and well worth the trip. We swam in a different, beautiful alpine lake every day we were there. Can't wait to return next summer.
