We wanted to stay in an affordable hotel as close to the gondolas as possible and were very pleased with our stay at the Listel.
Location - you can take a short cut through the Crystal Lodge passage way and you will find yourself on the Village Stroll in less than a minute. The hotel is only a couple of minutes from the gondolas. We hired our snowboards from Whistler Blackcomb school and left our gear overnight at the Carleton Lodge storage which is free of charge of you rented your gear with the school but the hotel also stores skiers/boards for you.
Room - we had a double queen room with plenty of space. The decor needed a bit of a refresh including the table lamps but the room was clean and the beds comfy. There was a fridge to store your own drinks or food from the grocery store and a kettle to make tea or coffee. The bathroom was a good size and we didnt have any issues with water pressure or hot/cold water.
Staff - we didnt have much interaction with the front desk but they were perfectly friendly at check-in and check-out times.
Breakfast - this was complimentary and included a range of cereal, porridge that you could heat up in the microwave near the door, precooked waffles that could be toasted, bread, bagels, muffins and pastries; as well as yoghurt, fresh fruit and the usual fruit juices and coffee/tea. Ah yes - they had hard boiled, peeled, eggs that were handy for egg sandwiches. The eggs were kept in the fridge and I saw some guests heating them up in the microwave. If the breakfast is not to your liking then there are plenty of places nearby to have a hot breakfast instead.
All in all - we both liked staying so close to the action and would come back.
