We travel frequently to Whistler for weekend getaways, and have stayed at many hotels in the area. The Pan Pacific Village Centre is one of our favorites, and although it can be quite expensive, especially in the high season, it is worth it based on our experience.
Fantastic location right in the middle of the main village. Although several properties, including the Pan Pacific Mountainside, are closer to the actual ski lifts, this one is still easily within strolling distance, and has the added advantage of being closer to the shops, restaurants, nightlife, and kids' playground.
Awesome service. We stayed with our two little kids during the shoulder season when the hotel was obviously not full, and were upgraded from a studio to a deluxe one-bedroom suite without us even asking. When we got to our room, there was a full complement of baby gear waiting for us, including a high chair, tub, a nice crib with bedding, and kids' bathrobes and toiletries. Fantastic hospitality.
Beautiful rooms. Our suite was one of the largest one-bedrooms we've seen so far in Whistler, and it was impeccably furnished with contemporary fixtures, excellent beds, nice appliances, a full kitchen, multiple flat-screen TVs, and a little covered porch. We thoroughly enjoyed hanging out in the room with our kids.
Free breakfast. You don't see this often at five-star properties. During the low season, it's a continental buffet only, but it's such a rarity to see complimentary anything at luxury hotels that it was a pleasant surprise. For a family of four, this perk can definitely help defray the high cost of the room.
The pool. It's not big, but it's heated well and has great mountain views. One of the hot tubs was out of commission during our stay, but there was another one that was just as nice.
Parking is expensive - but unless you're staying at a condo far away from the main village, it's going to be expensive everywhere.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and if you can find a promotional deal to bring the rate down a little, this hotel is highly recommended.
