... been a rather unbelievable experience. There were a few hairy moments, some very cold moments and a rather wet ending to our trip but so many good memories have been made through it all. I am happy to say that my skiing ability has improved significantly and I can give those pesky snowboarders a run for their money. A 360deg spin has been achieved (at much higher speed than it appears on film I assure you), a jump was attempted, the ...
... good progress. Jenny was being a bit more sensible whilst I was trying to see how fast I could go. This of course led to one of us taking a tumble, there was only one in our 45minutes of skating and you guessed it….it was me! (Michael). In my defence I was going much faster than Jenny and it took place whilst I was cornering at speed! Jenny saw the full spectacle of my high speed spin, in order to avoid face planting, and I tried to style it out and ...
... to fill in the time and then into Whistler (which is 1 1/2 hours from Vancouver) and into the magnificent Fairmont Chateau Hotel in the upper village of Whistler. Straight into a talk on the black bears of the area - we saw one just out of town - they have really entertaining and humouress speaker.
For our dinner option we chose the ...
WE SAW A BLACK BEAR IN THE WILD!!!!!!!!!! Totally awesome, about 60m away from us while mountain biking the trails around Whistler!!!! Hands down beats seeing a bald headed eagle on our Vancouver forest hike, no question. Anyway, today was awesome. Started with kayaking & canoeing about 5km across a lake and then into some rather fast flowing water with some mini rapids every now and then! Few collisions, sometimes like bumper cars ...
... at the Brew House, which seemed very appropriate I thought. Haha! It was really nice for my parents to get to meet some of my friends here in Whistler and see what I'd been up to these past few months.
My parents had booked five day lift passes for the week they were here, so they decided they would use them from Monday to Friday. On Sunday I met them in the village and showed them around a bit, I also took them to Brio to see the house I'd ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Coast Blackcomb Suites At Whistler
Comfortable and homey
Stayed for five nights-breakfast was very good and lots of choices-room was excellent -very clean and quiet-staff were very helpful-will return for sure in the winter as it is a true ski-in and ski-out facility-it is very hard to beat for the price!!
Don't Stay Here
There's no Air Conditioning in this hotel and they do not tell you that when you book. We booked through an internet site that had a reasonable rate but with a no cancel policy within 48 hours of the stay. Needless to say, we were stuck. All the desk would offer us was "Sorry" and "Yes, we should tell people there's no A/C when they book". (If they did no one would rent a room there during the summer!) While I understand that the Residence Inn cannot control the extremely hot weather that occurred the weekend of July 24, 2004, they did make a conscious choice not to install adequate cooling and not to advise their customers until it is too late.
When I book a room in North America (and with a well known chain such as the Marriott) I do not normally feel the necessity to question whether or not the establishment is equipped with air conditioning. I don't have to ask a car rental firm if the vehicle has A/C when I rent a full size car!
I cannot express the full extent of my disapointment and disgust with the accommodations and treatment we received. We went to Whistler for a milestone birthday and were miserable because of these conditions. I travel for business frequently, but will never trust a Marriott and will never stay at one or recommend one again.
Good for a family vacation
We stayed at the Residence Inn in Whistler for 2 nights in mid-July.
We had a studio room which included a full kitchen, queen size bed, and a sitting room with a pull out couch, fireplace, and Tv with video player.
The room had a small balcony. We were on the 3rd floor. There are 5 floors.
Our room was clean, and had every kitchen item you would ever need. This saved us some money by making our own snacks and lunches. Breakfast is provided and is very good. There are 2 waffle irons, various cold cereals, hard-boiled eggs, bagels with cream cheese, peanut butter and jam for toast, muffins, donuts, pastries, juices, tea and coffee.
During our stay there were several large tour buses filled with teenagers visiting from the US. At times in the evenings, it became quite loud in the hallways and in the lobby. It was quiet by 11 pm though.
There is an outdoor pool and 2 whirlpools. The kids enjoyed them. There were leaves and bugs floating in the pool, but that's the usual with an outdoor pool surrounded by trees and bushes. No real complaints there.
Some of the public areas had seen better days, but due to the loads of young people around, we could see that it would be difficult to have someone there constantly cleaning up after everyone.
The hotel is the furthest hotel up Blackcomb Mountain. It is at the end of Painted Cliffe Road. It would be great in winter for skiing. A chair lift passes right by the hotel. A little far from the village to walk, but a free bus is provided. There is a stop right outside the front door. Underground parking for $8/day.
All in all a nice, child-friendly place to stay.
RIPP-OFF WATCH OUT FOR BOOKING ON-LINE I tried this and was forced to call in my deposit, when I did I got shafted! Make sure you can pay the deposit online, DO NOT CALL THE HOTEL OR THEY WILL FORCE SEVERAL OUTRAGIOUS FEES ($16 for reservation AND $7.00 per day for a mandatory VIP card) I WILL NOT STAY HERE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great Family Environment
Just returned from week here. Great Skiin-out location. Continental breakfast definitely very handy and much to select from. Snow pretty slushy during this time. Transportation to village very convenient. If like quieter environment, stay here. If want to be in the action, may try the village locations. Very nice for right price.
We wanted a Hotel in Whistler for a November weekend getaway and chose this after finding a good rate on the Marriott website (119cad). This was for a studio room which was larger than alot of average hotel rooms, with proper sitting area with fire, fully equipped kitchenette/dining, pullout sofa bed, queen bed and balcony, full bathroom. (I would next time get a 1bedroom though due to a noisy fridge in the night). The continental buffet breakfast was included and excellent to start the day with and the staff that we encountered were friendly and helpful. The outdoor hot tub was great, although the pool was not working on our visit.
A great place!
This is such a great hotel. We have stayed there 4 times. It's the only place we stay. The free breakfast in the morning is great. Ski in/ski out is the best. The rooms are great - plush sofas, fireplace as heat, clean and nicely decorated. The staff is fantastic especially Ian the front desk clerk. The bus into the village is always 5 minutes away and it's just a short ride. This is a great place to stay at whistler!
Absolutely Awesome Hotel in an Awesome Village!
This is an awesome lodge type hotel located on the side of Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler. If the amazing drive to Whistler isn't amazing enough, the hotel is located in an even more breathtaking location.
Just seconds from all the villages, ski lifts and restaurants. I highly recommend this place.
I'll keep this short. I have stayed at many hotels in Whistler and this place is one of the better hotels overall for value and "real" amenities.
Plus: Studio rooms have full kitchens, pull out couch and are quite large. Breakfast is free. The slope side location makes for a few first tracks in the wee hours of the morning.
Cons: The slope side location forces you to either take transportation (free bus) to the village or hike the mountain (about 10 - 15 minutes) on a fairly good incline.
Ski in, ski out hotel
Whistler/Blackcomb has been rated as one of the top ski destinations in North America.
With the strong US dollar, close proximity to a major airport, tons of snow and huge ski acreage
Whistler/Blackcomb can't be beat. Imagine two huge skiable mountains with glaciers, backcountry
park, a cute European style ski village, and a laid back atmosphere and you've got what
Whistler is about. It's become a bit trendy with the Four Seasons hotel moving in, but you still
have affordable places and good deals like the Marriott. It's next to a major ski run so you could
just get out and ski down to the high speed chair lift that takes you to mid mountain. There's a free
buffet breakfast in the morning and a hot tub/pool by the slopes so you could watch other people
while you relax. It has covered underground parking and a shuttle that takes you to the village every
15 minutes. If you want ski-in, ski-out I think this and the Aspens hotel is the best deal.
If you just want to ski in Whistler but live on the cheap, the best deal is the youth hostel by the lake.
