My husband I had stayed here for my birthday this past June, and we could not have been any more pleased!!!! From the beginning the staff was more than helpful, going waaayyyy above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our visit.
I called to book a room, and successfully booked the last mountain facing personal hot tub room on the 3rd floor (NOTE: There are "PRIVATE" hot tub rooms available on the 8th floor, but you have to lean over the wall to see the mountain. Only the 3rd floor ones allow you to look at the mountain from your hot tub). Upon arrival, we were greeted by Liz (probably the most honest, enthusiastic, and genuine hotel staff member I have ever encountered, although I'd like we've NEVER had a rude staff member in Whistler in the past several years). When I told Liz we had hoped to get a specific room, she remembered another guest had moved out of that room, and offered it to us. Graciously we accepted, and quickly hurried up to the room to inspect our prize!! I could not be any more impressed. A personal hot tub that gave us a view of the mountain, was right above a bar (MEGA PLUS!!), and was nicely appointed with a kitchenette, and everything you could need in it!!!
This is one of the FEW hotels you'll find in Whistler that has king sized beds. If you're from the states, you'll understand how important that is. I'd even dare to say this is the only hotel that has a front-and-center view of the mountain, and a king bed, and a kitchenette, and a personal hot tub, and heated floors, and bike storage, and grocery delivery service (which we didn't use, but could see how it would be valuable!), AND one of the best staff members. The only down side I can see is that they don't allow pets (the Crystal Lodge does, and is across the path with no mountain views, but nice rooms over the main street walkway).
They do have a roof top pool, a self-service laundry, a secured parking garage underneath, and their rates are competitive with Pan Pacific, The Crystal Lodge, and other hotels in the area. You'd be silly to not stay here!!!
Liz was even so wonderful that she booked us the same room for September, but sadly, our second trip up this year had a limited budget, and we are forced to stay at a private condo that had some pretty killer rates. If we could have stayed at the Sundial, we would have, but it would have meant the hotel dropping their rates to the same price, and I consider it rude to haggle for that low of a rate.
I do want to address the review for the loud hotel room. Likely this was the room we stayed in, and yes it's right above a bar, but honestly, what would you expect?? Bars have music, and if you just close the windows, you don't hear a thing. Maybe bring some earplugs instead? Any traveler should note that they should call the front desk if you are concerned about noise. Weekends get pretty crazy with young kids walking in the streets, drinking, and being loud. You might hear music from the bar if you are at the front of the hotel. But you must decide.... Do you want an epic view from a totally awesome room (bike riders, you'll want this view of the park, trust me!!) , or do you want something on the backside that has a great view, and is more quiet?? I have a hard time believing that anyone will have a bad experience here, but call ahead if you are worried. The staff is more than willing to help you settle into just the right spot.
Overall, we'll be staying here again next year, and hopefully budget a bit better so we can stay for both our BC bike trips to Whistler.
