It has been a little over a month since our trip to Whistler. Staying at the Crystal Lodge was the best decision we made. The staff went out of their way to welcome us. Having just arrived for a seven night stay they up-graded us to a deluxe king suite on learning we were celebrating our anniversary.
The suite (in the new section of the hotel) was well appointed from the linens, soaking tub, granite kitchenette , comfortable bed and lovely fireplace. The housekeeping staff kept our room spotless. We skied every day from 9am until 3pm, just walked out the door, retrieved our skis at the valet service and walked to one of the two gondolas. What could be better, when we finished for the day we took our skis to the valet and proceeded to one of the many bars for a beer and a bite to eat before dinner.
I checked the TripAdvisor site before making the reservation and noted some people thought there was too much noise at the Crystal Lodge. We were there during a 3 day holiday, the village was filled with college kids, we got a kick out of it. There was some noise on a couple of nights, but we wern't bothered by it.
But that may be because we have college aged kids!
If you are new to Whistler or are thinking of returning you can't go wrong with The Crystal Lodge for location and ambience. When we go back, without hesitation we will stay there again.
