I visited back in March, as I was celebrating my 30th birthday with a ski trip as far away from my home in Florida as possible. Now that I'm planning a new trip for next year, I decided to consider Whistler again, specifically because of the great experience I had at the Westin. It also prompted me to write this review... a few months late.
The first thing I noticed, and the thing I noticed most often, was the friendliness and warmth of the staff. From the moment I arrived I had staff members going out of their way to help me. From the front desk staff dealing with an issue with my credit card (forgot to tell the bank I was traveling to a foreign country), to the concierge handling my lift tickets and ski rentals, and arranging transportation, I had nothing but good things to say. And believe me, I have said those good things to whoever would listen.
Thanks to my SPG status, I was upgraded from the studio to the one-bedroom suite. The suite was simply amazing. It was spacious and clean, and I was fortunate to have a great view of the mountain. It was nicer than I could have imagined. The concierge found out it was my birthday and had beer and snacks delivered to my room, which was a nice touch, and the work of a true professional.
The hotel location is perfect! It is steps away from the gondola and near all the bars and restaurants in the village. The Sunday night "Fire and Ice" show is steps from the hotel entrance, and a "must see" if you are able to do so.
I'm definitely coming back to the Westin to celebrate my 31st birthday next year. I may not make it up to Whistler every year, but when I do, I will certainly be staying at the Westin.
