Historical Traveler Reviews Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside
We spent our first night in Canada at the Pan Pacific in Whistler and we were delighted with the hotel. The staff are excellent and we were made very welcome. The hotel is well maintained and the room was of a very high standard. We would definitely stay here again. There is a charge for parking the car (approx. $20 CAD per night) however this seems to be the case with most hotels in BC.
Good hotel, shame about Whistler
We had a two-bedroomed Mountain View suite in the Pan Pacific for a few days in early August 2004. Calling the hotel got me a better price than the internet. The hotel was pleasant and comfortable with a nice pool and other free facilities, staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The suite was fine, but a TV in the second bedroom would have been good. Whistler in the summer was disappointing - the shops and restaurants were very expensive and the weather was poor, so we did our rafting and glacier hike and left a day early, for which the hotel charged $100, despite having had 48 hours notice.
Romantic and Perfect
My wife and I went on a vacation here last Febuary. Rented a studio room and were more than pleased.
Rooms are beautifully designed and very convenient. Every room has a dishwasher and kitchen (yet the maid staff does the dishes for the guests).
The rooms have fireplaces (nice touch) and down comforters.
This hotel has a wonderful staff, great hot tub (good after a long day of skiing) and an out of this world location (any closer to the mountain and you would be sleeping in the Gondala).
Highly, Highly recommend this hotel (if you can get a room--this one books fast and for good reason).
We drove up to Whistler from Vancouver for just two nights in June 2004. We had chosen to stay in the Pan Pacific as it looked like a fabulous hotel in a great location and we managed to get an excellent deal as it was off-season. We stayed in a 'One bedroomed suite' which was amazing. It was much bigger than we had expected, very clean and tidy, with a well-stocked kitchen (utensils/cutlery/plates etc) ready for our use. The bedroom was more than big enough and the living area and kitchen were a good size too, along with a small balcony to sit and watch the world go by. The staff here were very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for you. I would definately stay here again, although i think it's a little expensive in the winter months.
Great location, no cozy spaces
We stayed at the Pan Pacific Hotel on one of our trips to Whistler in 2001. The location was, of course, perfect--- spitting ditance to the gondola and lifts. We watched a snowboarding contest from the jacuzzi.
Our room was a little too small to have a kitchen and living area, but they made ingenious use of a murphy bed, which they tucked away while we were on the slopes, so it was fine. Ortherwise it was nicely decorated with granite counters, quality sheets, etc. The one complaint that I have is that there was no place really cozy to sit and relax, other than the Irish pub. The lobby had couches, but it felt like a walk-through.
Was good but thats expected of the P.P.
I drove up to Whistler from Vancovuer and had the pleasure of staying at the pan for one night. It was great! no incidents to report. But thats because it is the pan i would expect nothing else. Clean room, Good Service, Good pool area everything you would expect from the PP.
The hotel is beautiful, the location fabulous, but what makes this hotel truly special is the staff. I have never come across such an attentive, personable, professional and respectful staff, ever. I've travelled all over the world and visited thousands of hotels, but the greeting received here at the Pan Pacific is the best yet. The staff is genuinely nice, which is what I believe sets it apart from the usual contrived condescending attitude many staff have. I'll be back next year... this time with friends!
The nicest people you could deal with
The staff at this hotel bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. The guy at the front desk even played frisbee with my kids in the lobby during a slow time. The location is perfect, right outside the Whistler and Blackcomb gondola. The rooms were spotless. My wife is very fussy when it comes to cleanliness and even she was pleasantly surprised. In fact we thought the place was brand new. I hope to go back there again. Summer prices are good, but it's too expensive in the winter.
Best of the Best!
Fantastic location,brilliant staff,superb good value food - go to breakfast - yummy! Irish Bar is full of atmosphere. Rooms (suites) are very very smart and have fantastic views from the floor to ceiling windows. Are room had two bedrooms,two bathrooms,lounge,kitchen and full climate control. Would go back tomorrow and they have some brilliant deals in the summer - keep checking the P.P website - better than Expedia.
Spent four nights at the Pan Pacific in March, 2002 and want to comment on their excellent staff. Every employee we encounted during our stay went out of their way to do everything they could to make their guests have an enjoyable experience and stay.

... didn't mind. After freezing my hands to the point they were stinging my little snowman was alive and well, special but hey, first attempt and no snow gloves! Back down the chairlift and across the peak2peak for the last time. When we got across we got some nice pictures and then headed down the chairlift to the bottom of Blackomb. We were advised this was the best section to watch for wildlife but unfortunately none for us this lift ride. After some last minute purchases ...
... overall was a reward for our consistent week. Alan continued to climb stronger throughout the week and I was amazed how well my body coped with the racing. The only day that we felt a bit flat was day 5 but we still managed a third placing. I felt quite strong today and was giving Al constant reminders to push it along which he duly obliged. He is over the moon with his achievement as he has never podium before since he is usually on the other side running the event. He ...
... go for a hike. Of course I thought it was a good idea to join. We were hiking up to Rainbow Lake which is a 6 hour round trip. That sounds decent right? Few stops and out in the sunshine... Why not!?! So here's the story. We got up and met at 8.30am with bags ready with snacks and water. We started the walk. The first 1.5kms was steep and then the other 6.5km were meant to be steady. I'll tell you how it went... The first 1.5kms was steep. Then the next kilometre or so was through ...
