Historical Traveler Reviews Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre
Great breakfast, Great Room
We loved our vacation to whistler and the Pan Pacific was great. Lots of room for our kids. They even let us use the outside grill for steaks. Breakfast was included, and it was hearty enough to keep us going until lunch.
We booked last minute - took the grandparents and our two kids, so six people. Got a great rate - shoulder season, I guess. When all was said and done, Cdn$275 for the night. $20/parking and tax on the rate of $219 - it adds up. So, when rates go up, look out!
My husband and I stayed for 3 nights, Thursday, Friday, Saturday. We found the hotel staff to be friendly and polite.
We stayed at the Pan Pacific for three nights mid-September. Excellent location in the middle of the village. Receptionists were very friendly, although the concierge didn't appear to help with our bags, even though its $20 per night to include valet service. He got sidetracked with some other guests. We took our own luggage instead. The hotel is wonderful as it is brand new and very stylish. The rooms are very well equipped and on the first night we had room service, although the menu is very limited. Although the complimentary breakfast is very good, on one of the mornings there was nowhere to sit and people were having to balance their plates on their knees whilst sitting on sofas. We didn't make use of the hot tubs or lap pool which overlook the road.
My Partner & I stayed at this hotel in September 05 for 2 nights.
This is an all suite hotel right in the Village so you can walk to everything! The room was very nice with good views, a fireplace, a full kitchen, and a separate bedroom with a door. The hotel is new so everything was very clean and comfortable. Included was a full breakfast and appetizers in the evening. The food was good and fresh. I would definitely stay here again.
We have enjoyed the Pan Pacific chain of hotels elsewhere and thought we would try out their newest in Whistler. Most of the lodgings that we have stayed at in Whistler have been fairly upscale and comfortable, so we were not surprised to find the Village Center PanPac right in line with their compadres. The two bedroom "suite" was large and nicely decorated, though the quality of the furnishings seemed a little under par when compared to the other PP's that we have stayed at. There were two bathrooms each with soaking tub/showers; each bedroom had a walk-out porch with sitting area, the gas fireplace was cozy,, and the kitchen was adequate for fixing the kids quick meals (before the adults went out to enjoy Whistler's many dining options). The pool was well heated, though lap sized, and the two jacuzzis were nice and hot, which we appreciated. There was also a coed sauna by the pool which was great for warming up in.
Well I just got back last night after staying at the new Pan Pacific for 3 nights. This is my first stay at a Pan Pacific, so I'll try to break down the review into categories below.
Our family of four, which includes two teenagers, just returned from a seven night stay at the new Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre (not to be confused with the Mountainside Pan). I have to give this hotel/condo a glowing review as our stay there was wonderful. We paid a little extra to be on a higher floor (7th) but, with an introductory rate of just $249.00/night for a two bedroom, two bathroom suite with kitchen, it was a steal in Whistler. Our room over-looked the village and Whistler and Blackcomb mountains with decks from both bedrooms and the living room. One of our girls chose to sleep on the pull-out couch in the living room because it was just so comfortable and the view from the floor to ceiling window was magnificent. There are three T.V.s in the suite which makes life easy for families and the stainless steel kichen is equipped with everything imaginable. If you have ever stayed at a Pan Pacific hotel before, you know the "zen-like" quality of the rooms. Lots of granite, slate, wood and peaceful colours. Our rate included buffet breakfast and afternoon appetizers. The hotel does not have a restaurant, only a lounge - that is where the food is served. However, just steps outside the hotel is the village with many, many restaurant choices. The only downside is the size of the pool - only a lap pool with a small deck. There are a couple of spas/hot tubs for those tired muscles after a great day of hiking. Try Cougar Mountain ATVs for a great ride on mountain trails, our girls loved it. The new Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre has a great location, very comfortable rooms (Aveda products in the bath, ladies) and a friendly and efficient staff. I highly recommend it.
