We were told this is a 4.5 star hotel. The room was nice, but that was the extent of it. Very expensive! $30. / day for parking - we were warned. Breakfast buffet - $30. / person. Ski storage - $9. / day. Wi-Fi in the room - $14.95 / day.

Our key only worked half the time. At the end of our trip it stopped working. 3 trips to the front desk to get things (almost) resolved. They sent a guy to the room to fix the lock. After he did he told our son (who was in the room at the time) that we would need to go to the front desk to get new keys. After all the trouble with the locks you'd think they would have left working keys in the room for us.

My wife likes the steam room. Too bad it was broken almost every time she went to use it.

We shared our experience with the service rep that checked us out. He made no attempt to reconcile with us. No offer of breakfast on them, or a day of free parking, or anything like that. I'd save a little money and stay somewhere else.

Normally I wouldn't be bothered about the star quality of a hotel as anything from 3* upwards has very similar beds, and the most important thing is a good nights sleep.
However in this case - it was well worth the money. We were travelling with a 19 month old and a girl about to turn 4 yrs old, and location and amenities was absolutely key for our decision to stay here.
Front of Hosue staff - as good as any in a 5 star resort hotel. What was particularly great was the ability to borrow prams to take the kids around
Cleaning staff - amazing. Too big a credit - no, not really. They cleaned our rooms very well, which was their job - but they also bought and left a teddy for our older girl who turned 4 on the holiday after they saw a birthday card and wrapping paper in the bin.
Food - restaurant is very good and well priced, but in all honesty we tended to eat out more often.
Location - could not be better. Possibly the 2nd closest hotel to the main ski lines, and ski school; ski valet each day post skiing; ski shop in the actual building AND BEST OF ALL FOR FAMILIES, child care in the hotel itself. Why so important? You don't need to dress your kid in ski gear to get them there, leaving more time to go skiing, and far less tears!

We will be booking again!

Room Tip: Try and ask for a room slightly away from the lifts. As people are wearing ski gear and carrying equipment, being away from the lift means less noise from gear hitting against walls etc.

Stayed the one night at the Westin with my boyfriend and parents. They had the bedroom, we had the pull out couch, we were very comfortable. Had a gift voucher for this stay, so it was cheap based on that, would have been $290 otherwise! We parked the car in the ski day lot (which is free, google it - local tip!), or if you like $35 hotel valet parking service them go for it!
No in room wifi service, unless you want to pay $14.95 a day to have it. What a money maker ... disappointed that in this age they cannot incorporate wifi for everyone's use. Was very frustrating to have to go to the downstairs public areas to log on.
Whistler is expensive though, we all know that ... so make some money, go spend some money ... Whistler will gladly take it from you ...

Room Tip: Self park your car in the far end of the day lots (free!) Go for the best breakfast in town - Wildwood or Elements (same company, 2 locations)

Well it's Whistler, so you're paying for being in Whistler!
Good hotel, but not spectacular.
Normal rooms, might even be undersized.
Clean (which is important), friendly front desk.
Not cool to be charged around 15 dollars for 24 hour wi-fi in the room and 1 dollar for 60 seconds on their "free" desktops in the lounge area.
Well, each to their own.
I've been to fancier places for less with free wi-fi and free breakfast ... in Canada.

Stayed at the Whistler Westin over spring break of 2014. The facility itself was nice with all the advertised amenities. There are some fees for ski storage and internet access that were suprising for a 4 1/2 star hotel. We were in a two room suite. Skis are not allowed in the rooms and a fee of $27.50/night was charged for my family of four. Yes, if you look on their web page it is listed but this is the first time I've seen this at any ski resort at Whistler or anywhere else. I checked with the Hilton, Pan Pacific, and Fairmont and it's included in the room fee. These hotels also provide free in room internet access. At the Westin this was only offered in the Lobby or for a fee in the room and the connection wasn't that fast.
Housekeeping was adequate but after skiing for 6 hours it is annoying to need to call to have your room serviced.
Requested a room on three occasions that was on a higher floor prior to our visit but ended up with a ground floor room with a patio full of melting snow with garbage in snow.

We will not be returning to this hotel with the better options available at the same star rating and price!

Dear Carl,

I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on your stay. Unlike many hotels we do not charge a resort fee, and instead price out individual components so that guests can choose what services they want to take advantage of. We want to offer our guests the best value possible, and we have ensured that we are priced competitively among other Whistler hotels.

I'd like to also apologize that we didn't provide attentive housekeeping service and that we were unable to accommodate your request for a suite on a higher floor. I can see how this would detract from your overall experience.

We truly value your business and would like to keep you as a regular guest. At your convenience, please email me at lisa.mccormick@westinwhistler.com so I can invite you back and personally ensure your next stay is memorable.

Stay well,
Lisa McCormick
Hotel Manager
