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.

... of skiing was an hour at ChillFactor for the first few days we were going to go off together to allow her to get to grips with everything without any pressure. Despite a few very impressive falls she definitely got the hang of it very quickly, which was lucky as to begin with I wasn't a great teacher as I had to remember how to ski myself! Dinner at home was followed by Dads choice of Friends on TV, something I never thought I'd ever see him ...

So that never really came around so Timmsy came up with the 2.30pm appointments. We ended up going with Catering department and our group interview consisted of Timmsy and I talking to these 2 ladies. We got jobs on the spot!! Well 2 jobs to be honest.

At this point, I thought I had just hurt my wrist and that by tomorrow it would feel much better. But over the course of the evening, my wrist got more and more painful. Neither of us slept a wink that night, as every 2 minutes I was crying out in pain “It hurts soooo much!!”. We went straight to the local hospital for opening time the next morning. It was ...
... Crystal chair and we spent most of the day charging fast and steep piste! Mum found some nice relaxed runs too. 7th Heaven was awesome as well, though a little busy. That evening, town was packed - we had unknowingly arrived on Martin Luther King Weekend - a USA public holiday. While the mountain can disperse the crowds pretty well (it is arguably the largest in the world), the village was pulsing! On one hand, it made for an awesome atmosphere; but on the ...
... vouchers we had won / been awarded as a result of our volunteering at Cornucopia. We both had a big dish and thanks to the vouchers it only cost us $5 in cash plus 2 x $10 voucher. This means we can go another 3 times for breakfast with our vouchers!
On our way to the Wild Wood we saw all the fire engines were back in the village. The fire had restarted, how it is not clear, which meant more water damage to the shops below! What bad luck.
