went for 2 days of meetings and was upgraded to lovely 1 bedroom suite
Gym was great and an early AM swim in the heated pool was a great start
The free shuttle service around town was very helpful as I had meetings at different venues
Breakfast spread ample and a bit pricey

We rented a one-bedroom suite for a 11-day trip to Whistler during Spring break in March.

I would definately recommend this size of accomodation for anyone taking a break in Whistler who wants to be able to look after themselves and prepare their own food, and also be able to chill out in front of the TV/fire and to have a separate bedroom. Alternatively, the bar downstairs is a great place to relax and enjoy a post-ski drink.

We found the suite clean and tidy (we had a daily maid), with everything working and in good condition. It was quiet, although we were on the back of the west wing. We also found all the hotel staff friendly and accomodating and felt well-looked after the whole time. it's location is also great, just minutes from the gondola base and all the town's amenities.

We only had 2 small gripes: the ski valet is expensive and the rooms should have free wifi as the daily room rate is high (if you opt for that). That said, the coverage in the communal parts of the hotel was good (and it was an excuse to go to the bar!).

If we come back to Whistler to ski again, we'll definately stay here.

Room Tip: Think carefully about how much time you will stay in your suite and select accordingly. The one-bedr...

we have been staying at the Westin in Whistler for the last 8 years for 2 weeks in April. its like coming back home every year. Right from the valet at the front with Gavin and Dave to Stephen Baumberg at Concierge to Andrew Misquitta, the Rooms Director at departure we have a happy and comfortable stay. This year a special mention to the housekeeping department and in specific to Bhupi, the Angel as i now refer to her as. i had misplaced my ipod, a small green 2 inchX 2inch contraption in the room. i know when i was placing it that i would have a problem finding it the next day. i called the housekeeping team and in they came - ALL of them ready to find this needle in the haystack. and they searched for hours. i want to give it to them for their perseverance, positive spirit and most of all reinforcement to me that 'Dont worry Mrs Bajaj, we will find it". i left to ski for the day and returned that evening to find my green unit on my desk. Thank you to The Angel Bhupi who had found it in my dressing gown pocket. now, really who would look there? it would have gone straight to laundry. but like i said this team combed through the 300sqm room (although i am convinced they were dying to hear my Bollywood tunes on the unit). At the end of the day, they made one very very happy girl in me.
you have in the last 8 years never disappointed. There are good days and bad - but on the bad days, there is always Stephen at Concierge who will make it into a good day. Bravo and Thank you to the team at WEstin Whistler

We stayed 10 nights and enjoyed great service from all the team at the Westin Whistler.

Lisa, Andrew and the team were particularly helpful with a room change which allowed us a little bit more space and a work station for my son to do his exam revision at!

Positives - great location near to the lifts, ski valet service very convenient, good bar and restaurant facilities on site, good spa and reasonable gym facilities. Great staff with excellent customer service skills. In room kitchen facilities very good.

Not so good - Poor Wi-Fi (and expensive if you have to pay for it), varying views/balconies in different from rooms (check room layouts with reservations before you confirm), expensive breakfast.

Room Tip: Mountain view with balcony. NB rooms in the tower above pool with balcony collect all the noise from...

This was the second time I stayed at this westin in the past two years. The location is good but so are a lot of other hotels in whistler. Last time I found the staff to be snooty but this time it was even worse. I have advanced status with Starwood but it seems this location is the only one I have ever come across where the loyalty is meaningless. Upgrades which are usually free when available could only be had for a fee. When asking about a later checkout I was met with a surly no. Housekeeping came by at 430 just as my daughter was getting into the shower ( after a hard day of skiing), she asked them to come back in half an hour so they didn't return at all. The hotel doesn't allow skis in the room which is not unusual but charges $9 per day per set to valet them, really, can you get more nickel and diming your guests than that. What can I say except that this property doesn't live up to the westin name.

We stayed at the Westin in the skiing season and enjoyed its excellent location with the valet ski service and ski rental in house. The rooms are however quite small and the views from the rooms are very limited which makes it a bit depressing. The bathrooms are small and dated as well and do not really live up to Westin standards. I would recommend future guests to verify the exact location of their room to ensure its bright and offers views.

This hotel lives up to the "Westin" standards. Everything about this hotel is beautiful. From the moment you walk into the hotel the lobby is gorgeous as well as the rooms and facilities. VERY clean, the rooms were spacious with a nice clean kitchen. The gym and pool are excellent amenities, especially if you are travelling for longer periods of time. Overall this is a family oriented resort. Not recommended for younger people. The bar in the hotel is good as well as the buffet for breakfast. The location is steps away from the gondola but a little isolated from the main path. Have been a few times now and have always had a very good experience. Also have been to the spa. It is over priced for the service that was mediocre.
