Booked this hotel after taking advantage of a Groupon and since I have previously stayed at this property and paid regular rate, it was a great deal. Upon booking the Hotel room, I specified that the one night stay was for a quiet get away and requested a "Quiet" room.
We arrived a couple of hours before checkin and was accommodated by the hotel letting us park our car in a spot for the duration of our stay. We then wandered around Whistler, shopping, eating and showed back at the hotel 3 hours later to find that our room was indeed ready.
The room we received (#129) was away from the elevator at the end of the hallway and was definately quiet.
However, this was disappointingly not the case when midnight came, as it turned out to be right over a nightclub (The Savage Beagle) and right behind some trees that blocked main street Whistler. Late night partiers leaving the clubs, being excessively loud and the constant "Rave" music pounding from below made for a night of no sleep afor my husband and myself.
The early checkout of 10:00 am did not help the situation either after all the nights loud disturbances and when asked "How our nights stay was?" by the front desk Mgr I politely said that my idea of a quiet room was not being put above a nightclub.The Manager just sighed and said I guess not.
The property however is well maintained, has an indoor pool, jaccuzzi and is in the middle of Whistler village. Very central to all ammenities and attractions. It's disappointing that the persons assigning the room did not think before putting us in this hotel room as it definately hit a negative spot with me. Especially since we have stayed prior and asked for a quiet room and they did not disappoint. Perhaps this was just a one time mishap and if asked whether or not I would stay at the property again, I would probably give them another shot to redeem themselves with my request.
