Historical Traveler Reviews Summit Lodge & Spa Whistler
Surpassed my expectations.
I have just returned from staying at the Summit Lodge. My experience of Whistler was excellent and I believe a big part of the whole trip was the quality of the Summit Lodge. The hotel was very clean, well run and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again and tell my friends about it.
A great place to stay and to get around from.
The hotels runs a very good shuttle bus, a supermarket is over the road and the free Whistler shuttle if you stay in the bars until late stops 4 minutes away.
Dog Friendly & Fantastic Spa
Stayed here over the Thanksgiving Holidays in the 1 BR Suite (Nov '04). I'll definitely be back. The view of the Mtn from our room was beautiful (pool facing) - and monrings had the sun shining thru our room for hours. The maid service was quick and would work around leaving the room for only a short time with my dogs and was very friendly with them as well. Had the Javanese massage - was fantastic after a day of skiing! One downside was the bed was hard. Great Crepe place across the street for breakfast and walking distance to the mtn. Great overall location.
Great stay in an expensive place
My family of four stayed for three nights at the Summit Lodge in August 2004. Our stay was very pleasant and we'd return in a minute to the lodge. This building isn't really a "lodge". It is a hotel with berber carpeting - all the better for ski and hiking boots but not like a lodge at all. All the hotels in Whistler seem to be called "lodges". It must be some sort of marketing thing. Our room was large with two comfortable queen beds. The small kitchenette had two electric burners and a microwave oven but no convection oven. The hotel is virtually across the street from the IGA supermarket, making eating in the room extremely convenient. The frig had a tiny freezer so we had to ask the hotel to keep our vanilla ice cream required for our family's root beer float party. At least one lodge employee didn't know that ice cream needed to be stored in a freezer (so much for a root beer float party!) but what can you expect when staffing in a place like Whistler? Aside from the melted ice cream, the staff was friendly and helpful. We didn't use the attached health spa at all but it was nice to know, after a day of hiking, that it was there if necessary.
Great rooms and sevice nice kitchens and bathrooms and nice veiws from window.(even to the front) First time I stayed in Whistler, not to far from the Mt.
Fabulous and pet friendly!
Spent two nights at the Summit Lodge over Easter weekend...our first trip to Whistler in years and our first stay at this property. Found a terrific rate on Expedia where the Lodge was also listed as pet-friendly. Not only did they have our room ready at 10am but they genuinely welcomed our pooch and gave her a treat every single time she came though the lobby. If you've ever attempted to travel with a pet, you understand our amazement. Our King Studio was on the small side but immaculate, tastefully decorated and quiet. For the price, no complaints. Request a room not facing the pool if the weather is warm, however, as it tended to get a bit loud in the evening. Nonetheless, for the location, the price and their pet friendly policy, we'll absolutely be back.
Great little place
I really enjoyed staying here in 2000. We had an enormous room with 2 queen beds, living room and kitchen. It was very clean and beautifully, tastefully decorated. The staff members were wonderful, and the jacuzzi was very nice. The only gripes I had were that it was kind of a ong walk to the slopes and good restaurants (especially if you are in ski boots & lugging skis), and the fireplace was just a heater with a hologram of a fire. Still, I would choose it over the Pan Pacific for overall comfort.
An October Stay...
Our stay was pretty good. The level of comfort and service was excellent. The only problems we had were that the rooms were definitely not "soundproof" as advertised on many sites, and we were awoken at the unearthly hour of 8:30 am on a Sunday to the cleaning staff vacuuming outside our room! Aside from those minor points though, it was a great stay.
Great Boutique Hotel
Very nice hotel. The room was rather small, the bed was right next to the balcony so you had to go around the bed. The fan/ac was also right next to the bed so the noise and cold air would force us to turn it down. The fireplace was beautiful but it was at the foot of the bed so you could't see it from the bed and it was too far away at an angle to enjoy it from the sofa. Kitchenette and bathroom were great. The staff was very helpful w/ good suggestions for activities. The price was also very affordable compared to the pricey Westin, Pan Pacific. Not too mention it was on the quieter side of downtown Whistler. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, although I would ask for a different bed configuration if possible.
Can't wait to go back!!!
What a fabulous hotel!! Right in the heart of the Upper Village, close to shopping, restaurants, bars and the mountain. The room was a nice size, and the kitchen allowed me to make meals when I wanted to. I was spoiled by the in-room fireplace and soaker tub. The staff was very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to see and to visit. I'm already saving to go back, and I highly recommend the Summit Lodge to anyone visiting Whistler!!
We love Summit Lodge in Whistler
Classy, intimate, wonderful, service oriented, well maintained. I can not say enough about this wonderful little hotel in Whistler BC. Our (3 person) family spends many weekends in Whistler and we know now ( after finding a few baddies...Glacier Lodge Suite 201 being the worst) to stay with Summit Lodge. The suites are lovely and clean, the pool and hottub are well maintained, the staff is helpful and friendly. Many hotels in Whistler are "tired" due to the excessive traffic. Summit Lodge manages to keep its freshness. We won't stay anywhere else now.

AS recommended by Joyce, we didn't make a reservation for the ferry to avoid paying the fee, and had no trouble getting on. I was even ok with the price, super cheap in comparison to the cook strait in NZ. Once we got off the ferry, the drive north was beautiful. I can see why the sea to sky highway is named as such!! Snowy mountains and ocean for …

Sunday night we all went out and got loose - some more so than others but we won't mention names or point fingers at me. ;) Then Monday we hung out and Tuesday he went home :(. But I see him shortly when I go to Calgary! In Whistler to mark the end of the ski season they have a Ski and Snowboard festival. It's called "Telus" festival by the locals but it's no longer sponsored ...

After eating lots, opening lots of presents and some end of night fireworks both Jenny & I were very tired and headed off to bed, knowing that we both had to be at work the following morning.
Christmas was great fun but over in such a rush of days! It really rushed by this ...
Clean as a whistle
Il me restait juste assez de temps dans mon voyage pour faire une dernière escale, et je me suis dit que j'allais aller voir le côté ouest des Rocheuses. J'avais déjà vu le côté est lors d'un voyage en Alberta, et j'avais entendu que les deux côtés étaient très différents, il fallait donc que j'y aille.
Le plus simple à partir de Vancouver est une destination qui n'existait pas vraiment sur la carte lors de mon premier ...
