“Good place to stay but with some reservations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed our five night stay in Whistler. The hotel is located just off the main pedestrianised area and is surrounded by excellent restaurants. It is too far from the lifts to walk unless you are very fit and don't have to carry kids equipment. A bus is provided and this works reasonably well but there may be a ten minute wait in the morning as the bus is often full. The outdoor hot tub and pool are excellent for relaxing after a day on the slopes.

We had the following minor gripes.

The light in the room was extremely poor. We were unable to comfortably read books or even the piste map.
The service in the main reception area could be better. One day the water dispenser was empty and some days Baileys was provided with the late afternoon hot chocolate. Other days it wasn't. More consistency would be helpful.
Make sure you know the running times of the bus to the lifts. We didn't see this documented anywhere but they run from 8am to 4pm with a lunch break around midday.

Overall we may return or we may try to find somewhere closer to the lifts.

We stayed for 2 nights in early December in a double queen room. We had a small kitchenette in the room with a small fridge, 2 element hot plate, microwave and sink. We booked it with the intention of making some of our meals and having them in our room. The room however is just too small to sit and enjoy your dinner. There is a small dining table (which needs to double as a desk) that only had 2 chairs and there just was not any room to put any more chairs around the table to sit together and have a meal. This set up would definitely work for 2 people but was much too small for a family of 4. For families the location is close to the outdoor skating rink and playground for kids. It is also very close to IGA and some excellent restaurants. The location is not walking distance for skiing but there is a shuttle provided by the hotel. The hotel is dog friendly and there are indeed a lot of dogs. There are really no childrens activities in the hotel except for the pool if they are old enough to swim.

Dec 20th our family arrived to a booked weekend which was a scam, fool on me. The Summit in Whistler saved our weekend with amazing rates, free parking & even a complimentary bottle of wine. Peter & Courtney went beyond expectations to relieve not only our stress levels but also our pocket books. We will return to Whistler with complete comfort and confidence in booking with the Summit.

The Summit Logde & Spa at Whistler gets better with each passing year. My wife and I really enjoy the friendly dedicated service staff (Mark, Courntney, Peter & Lorraine). We also appreciate the consistant facilities/spa improvements. They work hard to make us feel right at home. The Summit Lodge is great place to stay!

I have stayed here twice in the past 3 months. Location is great, close to village but far enough away to be a bit quieter. Stayed on the inside overlooking the pool area both times and it was quiet both visits. Pros are the balcony, gas fire, kitchenette, king size bed & coffee machine in the lobby. This is a very pet friendly hotel which has its pluses & minuses. We took our dog both times and were at ease both times but the first stay we were kept awake until 3am with a whining dog next door and the second stay the room smelt like "dog" although the rooms were always clean. I would stay here again as it's convenient, quiet(if you don't get a whining dog next door!), clean & a decent choice if you get a good deal.

When I arrived around 7:30 pm there was no one around. It took a good 10 minutes before someone came to reception. She was not very helpful but at least I got a room key. There is no bellman or any other staff members to help you with luggage. There is a small ski shop at the front door which is where you store your skis. Nice small boutique style hotel that is a good 10 minute walk to the Blackcomb/Whistler lifts/gondola. There is a shuttle service available but not sure if it is part of the hotel or when it runs as the front desk was not sure herself (we walked). Our room had 2 beds and small kitchenette with an incomplete set of dishes. There was a small electric fireplace right in front of the bed which did not serve an aesthetic or functional purpose. The bathroom had Aveda products which was nice. The room itself is small so it would definitely be tight for a party of four.
The hotel is at the north end of the Village walk and an IGA grocery store, Starbucks, Blenz coffee, Rexall drug store and other conveniences are right across the street. There is a small spa located in the hotel and the swimming pool/hot tub is located outside the building. The hotel did not have a fitness centre/equipment. The hotel is pet friendly as there were many dogs present.

We stayed at the Summit over Christmas and loved it! The free Hot chocolates and baileys were great after a big day skiing on the hill. The staff were always helpful and friendly and the shuttle driver was always there to greet us at the bottom of the hill and take us there in the morning. James and Courtney were amazing helping us with our luggage as well as parking our oversize car, they gave great recommendations for places to eat and showed us some of the less known (locals) areas on the ski hill. We will definitely be back to stay again!
