Most people go to Whistler in winter for skiing or snowboarding. They don't plan to stay at hotels during the day so the most sought characteristics are a comfy bed and a roomy and clean room. Also being very close to ski lifts is very important, as not to walk "miles" with the ski boots from your place to the lifts.
The Sundial hotel is clean, has good beds, in room mini kitchen, in room fireplace, excellent localization by the ski lifts, very safe closed parking, smiling youngsters at front desk, newspaper at your room door daily, buuuut no breakfast included in the rate, something easily found in Whistler, no gym in the premises,no swiming pool, average size bathing towels and a very ugly reception with ugly sofas.
This said I tell you that it is very nice to stay at the Sundial but , I feel that the only reason they call it a "boutique" hotel is because outside of the building there is a boutique ( French term for a store) that sells ski goods.
So when deciding about the hotel in Whistler bear in mind that this is a very nice place but don't expect Phillipe Stark design, stilish lobby, thick huge towels, great gym, tasty breakfast.
It is not a boutique place and the use of this adjective is deceiving !
Stay there but don't be foolished by "boutique"
