We took the gondola ride up to the top of Whistler Mountain and then hiked across to take the Peak Express cable car up to the summit. We then took the Peak to Peak gondola (the highest lift of its kind in the world at 1427 ft above the valley floor) across to Blackcomb Mountain. From here we too the cable car to Seventh Heaven. The trip back down …

It's a beautiful morning at Whistler. We are all a wee bit tired due to the constant revelry in the street outside last night, but the sun is sparkling in a clear blue sky so crawling back into bed is just not an option. I feel that such a lovely morning should be shared, and wonder briefly if setting off the fire alarm in …

We can't head to Whistler until after lunch, so the morning is free. What to do? The vote is tied at 1:3 between shopping and a short local excursion. The issue is finally decided using the proven rock, paper, scissors method and we pile into the car. A short time later, we arrive at White Rock, a popular seaside spot with a …
This week has flown by so quickly. Always does. Monday morning was marked a travel day. Dmitri rushed off some transfer applications at the internet café as I became a typical tourist for the day. Did lots of shopping and picture taking. Vancouver is such a curious city with an abundance of extremes. I see rich and poor, …
... 000 people and a rotating transient population of seasonal workers. We found the Aussies! There are a few that work here.
Our accommodation is so handy to the village, a warm and cosy feel, with our own fireplace.
To get a lay of the land, we collect the hire car - first go at driving on the wrong! side of the road. I've got this system of tying a hair band around my right finger so tight my finger feels like it will fall off, so I constantly ...

Good central location but was very noisy all night from party goers in the street

Holidy Inn Sunspree in Whistler is an excellent hotel for a very nice price! We have seen many hotels during our 3-week trip through BC, but this hotel had the best value for money. The rooms include kitchen with fridge, dishwasher and microwave, and the large room is equipped with a fireplace. The staff is VERY helpfull, they are willing to give you any advice you need. The location of the hotel is perfect, within a 100 meters of the stroll, the walking street through Whistler. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Whistler!
A group of friends and I always make a trip to the World Ski and Snowboarding festival(WSSF) in April. The Holiday Inn Sunspree is the least expensive hotel I have been able to find with a great location. The rooms are great. We loved having a room overlooking the pedestrian street to people watch from our balcony. The front desk and check-in was average. Security in the hotel is good. You can not get into hotel with out a key. The elevators require a key to use. There is also an intercom system to call up to the room from downstairs. The rooms were perfect for us. A full kitchen, dryer, and queen bed and trundle bed were perfect. After a long day on the mountain it was great to be able to come back to the room for a cold beer and warm fireplace.
After doing a lot of research and finding this hotel to be one of the least expensive ones in the village, I was very pleased with this hotel. The rooms were nice - we had a basic room but it still came with a full kitchen (no dishwasher) and a jacuzzi tub. The only "complaint" I have is that you couldn't stop the heat from coming in, even after shutting the system off. It was kinda ridiculous at night - I opened the 2 small windows and put the AC on (it's a portable unit). Kinda crazy if you ask me - total waste of energy. I'm from Hawaii and found it ironic that I, of all people, was hot! The last night we were there (we stayed 3), I did have to get up and shut the windows because of the noise going on outside (it was the first night of the weeklong Telus Ski and Snowboarding competition so there were definitely more kids/teenagers/20+ year olds around). I noticed a lot of other rooms had their window's cracked open as well.
Friendly staff / good central location
I have just come back from Whistler and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The hotel is warm and comfortable and in a good position in the village so everything is within easy walking distance. The rooms have fully equipped kitchens (dishwasher etc), are clean and tidy and have jacuzzi baths. No faults whatsoever!
we spent 5 days here in April 2004 and we were very happy with the choice. the resort is located on the upper 3-4 floors above retail/restaurants on the main drag at the outer edge of the main village so you can't beat the location. it was about a 5 min to the main lifts. we stayed in a deluxe studio with full kitchen/washer/dryer and a gas fireplace and a balcony.
Great Front Desk Staff
We had the pleasure of fourteen nights skiing in Whistler in April this year, and we were delighted with the Holiday Inn Sunspree. Our loft studio faced away from the construction work outside, but hey- if you are there to ski, who cares what's going on in the village during the day!
The kitchenette was really well equipped, and we were very comfortable.
The front desk staff were all exceptionally friendly, and the complimentary ski valet service was first class.
The location is central, but slightly back from the main night action. There were a few strange street noises during the night, but after all, Whistler is very much a young person's resort. We'd definitely go back to this hotel.
We stayed there 2 nights in August 2003 -
We had a Deluxe Suite which had a full kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, stove, full size fridge, washer & dryer) a queen bed, a murphy bed and a fireplace and a small balcony
The beds were extremely comfortable. There was some construction going on but we never heard a sound (we were facing the plaza, which was opposite of the construction).
The only thing that was missing was a pool but the jaccuzi was really nice.
We would definitely go there again!
Why do they stay open?
We just returned from Whistler. We are not skiers but wanted to get away somewhere different for 3 days. We could hardly find the hotel for fences and scaffolding. A huge Pan Pacific Hotel is going up virtually in the courtyard. Noise, cranes, cement machines. Awful. We looked out of our window to cranes moving. At night, high beam spotlights lit up everything. The ambiance of the village was lost. And, the jacuzzi tub/spa was closed. Huh? No I would not stay here again. What a disappointment for my husband's 60th birthday.
OK, but ...
Some good points and bad points about this place. Firstly, it is in a really central location (which is excellent for food, drinks and lifts, but can be a little noisy after dark!) and the rooms are very clean and comfortable, particularly the slightly larger suites.The downside is that there is a new hotel being built next door - the contractors work from 7am to 7pm, and usually have late concrete deliveries. Our original room was opposite where they were working which was intrusive and noisy. However, as soon as an opening came up, we were moved to the village side and our rooms were upgraded to suites.Bottom line - a lot of good things about this hotel, but unless the price were right, until the building work is finished, we'd look elsewhere.Whistler is AWESOME!
We previously stayed at the Summit Lodge, and then the Pan Pacific. In 2002, we decided that we wanted to be closer to the slopes than the Summit Lodge, but that the Pan Pacific (while great) wasn't worth the money. Looking at slopeside and near-slopeside accommodations, the Holiday Inn Sunspree stood out because it was so inexpensive. And it is right in the middle of everything Whistler has to offer. We rented a suite that had a loft bedroom, living room, and kitchen. It didn't have the luxury feel of the other two hotels, but it was still very nice.
