4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

This is a very friendly place, with great staff on the front desk. The shuttle bus service works well. We ate breakfast there at "The Fix", also had a supper in the bar and a dinner in the restaurant. The food is good. Athough the staff are helpful, those in the Fix and restaurant seem to need more training and/or coordination.
There is a great hot tub on the roof with views of the mountains.

We loved the Nita Lake Lodge - I stayed here with my husband in December 2010 for a week. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We booked a one-bedroom suite but were upgraded for free to a two bedroom suite. The room had 2 floors and would be perfect for 2 couples to stay in and still have their privacy. Our room was updated and clean, beautiful and spacious but with a cozy feel, and the views were absolutely spectacular. The beds were very comfy to sleep in. We didn't use the balcony much because it was cold outside but spent a lot of time in the hot tub and by the fireplace. It was so relaxing to just sit and watch the beautiful view outside. Nita Lake Lodge is about 10 minutes away from Whistler Village with beautiful lake/mountain views. I liked being away from the village. I think the views were prettier and it was nice to be in a quiet, tranquil area. The lodge operates a free Land Rover shuttle that takes guests back and forth to the village all day and until late at night - we used this a lot and found it very helpful. Nita Lake Lodge also has a spa onsite. We used it once and it was very nice. We had booked an evening massage and regret that we didn't get there earlier to soak in the hot tub and just lay around and relax. We got there just in time to have our massage, relax and drink a bit of tea, and then leave. When we tried to book a second massage later in the week, they were all booked for the day we were trying to schedule, so be sure and book your reservations in advance. We were also able to arrange ski lessons through the concierge which was nice. Then, we'd take the Land Rover shuttle right to Whistler Village where they offer the ski lessons. We did 3 days of ski lessons and it was a lot of fun (it was our first time skiing). Some closeby restaurants that were very good are Rim Rock Cafe (nice - make reservations in advance) and Creekbread (more casual - great pizza made in a wood-fired oven). We liked the restaurant inside Nita Lake Lodge as well. Whistler is truly a winter wonderland and Nita Lake Lodge offers some of the best views - I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

But only 4.5 kilometres to be exact, and the village is easily accessible by paved forest trail and one of the hotel's 10 bicycles available to guests. But no need to go into Whistler at all--the lake is pristine, and swimmable, there is a beer and wine store, a deli, a spa and a Canuck-flag-sporting pub. There is parking off-site. We purchased a night with two massages, and a $25 credit in the formal dining room through Groupon for a great price. The massages were great, the room was great--large, well-equipped, and immaculate--but we were drawn into a fine dining experience that we would now avoid. The menu was original, and for the most part well executed. Scallops with sweetbreads were delicious, the cocoanut molasses divine. But it was more than we wanted to spend, and despite our server's view that everything was "amazing", there were a couple of wrong notes, like too much salt in the bulgur, and too much ice in the long-awaited cocktails. We caught a couple of tunes by a wonderful guitar player out on the patio after dinner, who said it was the best place in Whistler, and I think I agree.

Have been going to Whistler for many years for mini-vacations from Vancouver, and have stayed at most of the fine lodges. The brand new Nita Lake Lodge is a sparkling, well designed gem with thoughtful touches everywhere you look. Spring for a lake view room, if you can.

What is not to love here? Not a thing. Friendly check-in, accomodated my request for a no-pet room, and parked in the ample lot across from the hotel for free.
LOVE the bathroom, and want one in my future house just like it....the best shower I ever had. Lovely lake view from dawn through dusk and beyond.
Did not use the hotels food services so can't comment on those. Ate a A++++ wonderful seafood dinner at the Rim Rock Cafe just 5 minutes walk north, and inexpensive delicious breakfast at the Wildwood (?) (tennis club).
I can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: Lakeside room is a must.

Nita Lake is nestled along Highway 99 in beautiful Whistler, just about a five minute drive from Whistler Village and my wife and I just got back from there for our honeymoon. As far as ambiance, setting and service, we could hardly have asked for more. The lake-view room was stunning, the amenities in our 1-bedroom suite were outstanding, a huge tub, a massive stone-tiled shower with a bench seat, a heated bathroom floor, a giant big-screen above the fireplace and so many freaking channels that you couldn't even count them. The patio deck was small but gorgeous and beautiful to spend an early morning sipping your coffee or reading on. Room prices were also very reasonable, around $215 a night, then some change for taxes

Location: Awesome, gorgeous, romantic and picturesque.
Service: A-plus. Spectacular. Their conceirge and front desk helped me and my wife arrange our vacation plans - massages, ziplining through whistler (HIGHLY RECCOMEND), horseback riding, and whitewater rafting. They had our whole schedule set for us when we arrived there.
Amenities: A little too pricey. Aura restaurant is premier, first-class dining and you'll pay for it. The food is unspeakably delicious. You savor every bite, it's psychotically good tasting. And then it does hurt a bit when your three-course meal for two, and two drinks each tips close to $200 after taxes and tip... it'll get even higher if you don't go the three-course route and just orde the five-course or a la carte. The dining lounge is the cheaper option, but dinner and drinks for two is going to run you north of 65 bucks after tip. Eating inexpensively in Whistler is nearly impossible and that was our biggest complaint....

Liked Best: The Shuttle service and concierge service. For concierge summary, see comments above. Only five minutes from Whistler, much of your activities will be down Highway 99 in the village. Nita Lake bends over backwards to get you where you want to be. Wanna go to Whistler Village? The shuttle will be here quickly. Your wish is their command. We did have one mishap/miscommunication where our shuttle missed our pickup. We called the front desk and they insisted we grab the first cab we could find and the hotel would cover our fare. They took care of the problem very well. If you go, you gotta get in the shuttle van with Glenn. That dude rocks, he's good company and he knows his stuff about having a good time in whistler... he's good people, especially if you love good country music. Not that manufactured junk like Rascall Flatts. We're talking legends. Chris Ledoux, Travis Tritt. George Strait. Glenn rocks, and we found this out when my wife and I, in a 30-minute span, had to make not one but two extra trips back into the Village when we were super forgetful and left stuff back at restaurants and in our day locker. Glenn was in good spirits and spread good cheer to us as he took us around and changed our foul, forgetful moods into good vibes.

Also cool: They had gourmet chocolates and a personalized greeting card waiting for us in our room when we got there.
