Came to whistler with a few friends for a wedding and stayed at first tracks. Beautiful apartment for the five of us! Used the gym and hot tub:) and you couldn't be closer to the slopes!:)
We were told by the extremely polite reservations agent over the phone that our room was the smallest they had.
It was enormous. We had such a great time. The kitchen was phenomenal, great location, pretty and rustic. The bed was super comfy.
The parking was a little pricey, but it's Whistler.
My husband and I were blown away by the beauty not only in Whistler, but at the First Tracks Lodge. We did not want to leave our room!! We weren't sure we would like Whistler Creekside since it's not connected to Whistler Village, but we left actually preferring it! We loved the peace and quiet that Creekside offered, and were close enough to the Village hustle and bustle if we actually wanted to be a part of it. We ordered take out, cranked up our fireplace, and read books all day long. Perfection.
There is a Starbucks across the street and a great grocery store with a lot of organic food to equip our kitchen with. There are also restaurants in Creekside, so you're really without want for anything. And there are *two* hot tubs-- a brilliant idea with all of the skiiers needing to soak their muscles after a long day on the slopes!
The facilities are incredible and the staff is amazing-- we received a $10 Starbucks card if we agreed to forego daily maid service-- an easy compromise! They will deliver anything you need complimentarily-- you just don't get your bed made. Totally fine by me. :)
I will be back in a hearbeat! Ask for any of the rooms ending in "06" if you want a more spacious room, or for rooms facing the ski lift, slopes or gondolas if you want a view. We can't wait to return!!
After reviewing many of the lodgings for Whistler on Trip Advisor, this one caught my attention.
We stayed at First Tracks Lodge with our Daughter and Son in Law over the Labor Day Weekend, and were able to get a great deal, which made this place even more affordable! The 2 Bedroom suite was very spacious, and nicely furnished. There was plenty of room for the four of us, and not feel as though we were cramped. Our suite was on the ground level right beside the pool/hot tub area. This was a small noise distraction, but we found that the hotel seemed to be very good at enforcing it's 10pm Quiet Policy, and so were not bothered with unwanted noise from that area in the late evening. The kitchen area had very nice appliances, and was well stocked with dishes and cookware, although some of the items were a bit worn.
The drive back and forth to the main village was worth it for the quieter location.
We would definitely stay here again should we ever have another opportunity to be in Whistler
Fantastic apartment - best in which I have ever stayed. Nicer than my flat. Sparklingly clean, luxuriously appointed. I can't speak for facilities & ski-lifts as didn't use, but would agree with others that although it's a little way out of town, this did make it very quiet and peaceful. Not for you if you like to be in the thick of things, but ideal if you want somewhere to repair to for some down time.
Thank you for your feedback on First Tracks Lodge and for choosing to stay with us! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time and we hope that we'll have an opportunity to have you stay with us again in the future.
My wife and I are first time visitors to Whistler. The staff provided us with all we needed to know! Referral to Rim Rock Cafe for Dinner was awesome!. Thank you so much for being a part of our visit to Whistler!
Clean, spacious. Pool, hot tub, and steam room all a nice break from walking the mountains.
