UK tourist, who has mainly skied in France/Italy/Austria and been accustomed to European hospitality. North American resorts clearly blow European hotels out of the water when it comes down to service and value for money but this resort, in my opinion, rivaled that to what you would expect in the Far East when it comes to these two aspects. It just took it to another level.
Everything from the service at reception to that in the restaurants & bell boys was top class, combined with great skiing for the week. We went early January 2013 for 6 nights and despite it being -10C plus on the slopes, the hotel was clearly a welcome break after a cold and hard day skiing.
Benefits of the hotel are:
1). Away from the noise and buzz of central Whistler resort, located in Blackcomb, and not disturbed by partygoers in the middle of the night or the noise from snow combers.
2). Incredibly good food, from breakfast to dinner...try the huevos montana at breakfast.
3). Wonderful heated pool, jacuzzi that is something you never see in European resorts; nothing like being in a hot-tub and the snow is coming down in the evening after an eventful day on the slopes.
4). Nothing is too much for the staff and they attend to every tiny request you may have
5). Complimentary GL & ML Class Mercedes to whisk you privately around the resort (including Creekside), in addition to hotel shuttle bus.
6). Awesome fireplace in the room and a massive bathroom.
7). Hot chocolate and cookies after skiing at the concierge
8). Ski concierge look after and handle all your equipment from when you arrive, during your stay, and at check-out. Includes liaising with the Whistler Blackcomb store if you have hired equipment like we did.
9). My wife used the spa, and although expensive, the treatments were of a very good quality
10). Wonderful beds and just what you need after a hard day skiing.....as soon as my head hit the pillow, I was out for the count!
This is not only the best ski hotel I have stayed in but one of the best hotels I have stayed in...period! We were debating between this hotel, the Fairmont and the Westin, but so happy we took the advice of our agent and booked this hotel. Don't get me wrong, Whistler is one of the best ski resorts around, and combine this with the 4 Seasons, you have an unbelievable holiday.
Don't say this often but I cannot wait to go back to a hotel I have previously stayed in....so many great memories.
