Wasn't really too sure when I got this place for an extended weekend through groupon, but I would say it was a great deal.
Check-in was easy and they were helpful when I asked for the twin beds instead of the king and had someone up to change it almost immediately. The location is great, right in the village above Araxi and across from the grocery store.
The room itself was great, and lots of room for a suite (no bedroom, just all one room). The kitchenette was great (almost better equipped than some of the kitchens I've lived with) and there was even a balcony so you could watch the pedestrians on the walk below if you were brave enough to stand outside :) The only thing I think worth mentioning that turned me off was that the hot tub and pool were in the basement by the parking. The location is a little awkward and I guess I'm spoiled and like having my hot tubs outside, or at least with a little fresh air. If that doesn't matter to you, I would say book it!
They even have a ski storage with the intersport(?) in the lobby so you don't have to worry about lugging your skis/board to the room. The entrance is also right by the greyhound/snowbus bus loop, so it's a great location if you plan to take the bus up to whistler to save on the hassle of trying to figure out what to do with your car.
