I rating Whistler Village Inn and Suites a four based on value.
We have always stayed in the Upper Village on our trips to Whistler. For our last trip at the end of June we suddenly found ourselves arriving early with a couple of extra days. I booked us a room though the Whistler accommodations website on a last minute secret shopper kind of deal. We really weren't expecting much considering the price. You generally really do get what you pay for.
Upon arrival, (slightly early) we were checked in with a smile and without fuss into a studio in the Powder Lodge. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room, the kitchen facility, the clean and renovated bathroom and the fireplace. The room had a pull out couch and a Murphy bed that pulled down over a dinning area. It was excellent for the price. We went out to eat and explore and when we returned we had a problem with our room. (I'm not going to go into it, because it's the sort of thing that could have happened anywhere or at home, for that matter.)
We called the front desk and the houseman came instantly and politely assessed the situation. In only a few moments we received a call from Derek at the front desk informing us we would be moved and upgraded to a loft suite for our trouble. The houseman appeared to assist immediately. It was clear to me from how all the parties conducted themselves that they were well trained and they were very conscientious. It was text book on how to manage this sort of situation. Kudos to them and their training
We were moved to a loft queen, a two floor affair with two flat screen TV’s, fireplace, kitchenette, balcony and fold out couch and dining area. Like a cute apartment.
The rooms are nice, darker in colour palette, let’s call them cozy. All the public areas are nicely renovated with the exception of the carpets in the halls which are worn, (think of all those ski boots) but clean.
The hotel is located very closet to the slopes and with easy access to dining, shopping and exploring. For us (more for my DH) this was the drawback. Being in the action, means village noise and folks coming home from the bars etc. But, if you are going to be in the village at any other hotel, you’re going to get the same conditions. You can’t really hold that against the hotelier.
Our checkout was friendly, professional and they were helpful in arranging a cab to our new destination. All in all, I thought it was excellent value for the money. More can be had in a hotel in Whistler, but not much more could be needed. If you want the upgrades, they can be had at a price in Whistler, but a much higher price. If you don’t need them, this is a very good place.
