The good stuff - quick & easy check-in, even easier checkout (get the SPG app, if you don't have it). Spacious room that had been renovated fairly recently. Room had a fireplace, large TV (liked the Netflix access), comfy bed, and was quiet. Good-sized bathroom - nice shower with good water pressure, nice toiletries. Nice to have a small balcony with a decent view. No long waits for elevators. Great location at base of Whistler gondola. Appreciated the self-park option (rather than valet-only).
Not-so-good - as with comparable hotels at Whistler, parking isn't cheap ($30/day). The hotel has a nice pool/jacuzzi/sauna area with a sun lounge/bar, BUT it is closed for the entire month of October, including the long weekend. We were really disappointed not to be able to use this (though they did offer access to the Hilton's facilities). The hotel bar is decent, but sleepy (head to the Fairmont for the best hotel bar in Whistler). Restaurant menu uninspired and relatively expensive. Newspapers (National Post) were available in hallways on half the days we were there.More
