“Symphony #9”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We just stayed in suite #9 and overall it was ok. I would definitely recommend this suite for during the winter time but would hesitate to recommend it during the summer. The sole reason for this is that it was very hot, in the 30's and there is no air conditioning and almost impossible to sleep with not being able to open the windows due to the unit being right beside a busy and loud road. Other than that the unit is nicely laid out and has everything else you need, except air conditioning. Good location. If you have a bigger vehicle the parking space provided will not work for you.

We just stayed in unit 26 and, to be blunt, we were a bit worried because some of the reviews were not stellar and because some of the photos appeared to be generic for the complex rather than the unit.

It turns out our experience was great; here are our observations:

- Check in at Blackcomb lodge was close and very quick/convenient;
- Furniture is definitely a bit dated but was comfortable throughout; (Sleep rating is midling only because some of us are spoiled from amazing beds in Westin's and other high end places);
- Kitchen was well equiped; water pressure in kitchen was a problem until we realized that there was a ridciulous water saver in the tab that could be unscrewed easily enough during the stay;
- Main bedroom (off the living room) is a bit dark but otherwise totally comfy;
- Underground secured parking for 2 vehicles;
- Getting your stuff into the unit from the parking garage was a bit of a chore up one flight to ground level and then another flight to the unit which is on the 2nd level of the complex and itself has two levels; good pre-skiing warm-up!
- We were surprised that the hot tub was part of the "common" property (not a big problem, we just hadn't caught that from the description);
- Location was quite good for the price (Under $300/night for 6 of us) - kitty corner from the marketplace ... albeit a healthy 15 minute hike to the lifts if you're hauling your ski/board gear (one day we simply drove and parked which took 3 minutes and cost $8 for the day);
- Good Internet router;
- Unit had dish washing liquid (for handwash and dishwasher) but no laundry soap;

I would stay here again given the price/value combination.

My 2nd visit to Whistler.
Great location, stayed here for a 5 day weekend with a buddy. 4 nights cost us $128 per night from March 29th to April 1st and FREE parking! I'll say it again, free parking. Hard to find in whistler, especially if you opt to rent a car. Walking distance to the grocery store + beer store. There's also 2 bus stops (free local bus) really close by, short walk with ski boots.

We had a queen bed an a double sofa bed (studio, no room), both comfortable with a full kitchen, full bath, and gas fire place. The decor is absolutely outdated, but who's complaining at that price. The hot tub access is also nice. Everything was clean and tidy, would stay again if looking for a budget stay.

The Symphony townhouses are well located, close to stores and within walking distance of the village and lifts. There is a bus if you dont like to walk in ski boots! The decor is a little out of date but the units are kept clean and tidy and have all you need to self cater. There is a gas fire which is nice and BBQs on the balconies. There is access to a hot tub which is always good after skiing. There are pull out sofas if you have extra heads.

We stayed at Symphony unit #9 and booked through the Whistler/Blackcomb website. This was our second stay, we had the same unit last year. The location is excellent, easy walk to the marketplace shopping area and the rest of the main village. Free village shuttle is just across the street and drops right at the Whistler/Blackcomb gondola base. Unit has 2 bedrooms, with a king, 2 twins (which can make another king), a pullout sofa and 3 full bathrooms - very useful! Kitchen was well equipped (with the exception of an undersized kettle) so we could do our own meals. Made a great base for a ski trip, and the car could stay underground out of the snow for the whole time. The internet was not working and the property office was unable to help. We called the local cable/internet company and they reset the connection in about 30 minutes.

Stayed in Unit #38 at Symphony, two bedroom, one with a queen, other with a double plus twin. Ideal for families with children, there were also a couple pull out couches. Was worried at first about the distance to the lifts, but the free shuttle is right in front and passes frequently, it also drops-off and picks up at convenient spot lift side. The IGA grocery store is just next door and it is a easy 10 minute walk to nice restaurants further in the village, and 3 mins to the many fast food options at the marketplace (McD's, Greek, Chinese, KFC, Dup's Burritos(very good), Quiznos.. etc) There was free underground parking and unit was very easily accessible for loading and unloading luggage and equipment. The LCD TV had multiple inputs could easily plug in laptop for viewing movies, fireplace was great as well. Complex has a hot tub, but did not utilize it on this stay. Room was very clean, more than expected. Good washer and drier and separate area for storing equipment. Great value as this was one of the cheapest units when I was looking to book. Only negatives, the rooms were a bit small and were told pipes could be frozen in one washroom, reason why water wasn't draining fast enough. Will probably request this unit on my next trip to whistler.

Room Tip: Use the free shuttle! Usually Lift Ticket deals when buy 2 or more in advance and kids should be ab...
