    had a nice little kitchenette; the best thing about that place was the location; right at the gondola - and they just collected our skis for us at the end of the day!

    We found a good package on the hotel's website that included our PEAK2PEAK passes, which made the room rate really reasonable. The location is excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful, the spa is lovely. Nothing to complain about here!

    Lovley Hotel

    from

    My Husband and I just back from a pre-season ski trip to Whistler/Blackcomb. The mountain is the best I have ever Skied on and that wasn't peak conditions! We stayed at the Westin. We were going to stay at the Fairmont but lost our reservation (our fault) we were told that the Westin is a comparable hotel. Maybe it is because we loved the Fairmont that we had stayed in in Banff and were expecting the same level of service but we were disappointed. It was a nice hotel but the little things weren?t the same. Upon arrival we were told that there was a $15 per day fee for valet ski service, pool use and other amenities. I later called my travel agent and had that charge reversed.

    The staff was friendly the rooms were nice but I guess for what we paid for the hotel I would have rather saved money and went with any of the other hotels in the area. All hotels at the base of the mountain were nice if I had known that I wouldn?t have hesitate to stay at the Delta or Pan Pacific.

    One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in!

    from

    Excellent resort property situated at the base of the ski lift. The decor and ambience is wonderful. The room had a well-equipped kitchen, a fireplace and a spacious bathroom with a seperate shower and tub. The perfect place to unwind after a day on the ski hill. The indoor and outdoor heated pool area is spotless and luckily there are adult swim times (during peak-season the hotel is full of families with loud children in the public areas.) The fitness facility is excellent and offers premium equipment. I will return!

    Outstanding Hotel

    from

    Better than advertised. The rooms are superb - the bed is as good as they claim (Heavenly), the bathroom was large (stand-up shower & soaker tub) and the kitchen was excellent. While there are many good restaurants in Whistler, you can prepare just about anything in the kitchen. The staff was uniformly curteous and helpful. Concierges Sherwina & Kristi went above and beyond, as did all of the Front Desk & Concierge staff. If you need advice about restuarants, hiking or biking, stop there first. Take full advantage of the spa - the pool, indoor & outdoor whirlpool and sauna. I will definately return.

    Westin Resort is Awesom

    from

    The service is amazing, the room was fantasic, the fitness facilities and pool are great.There is not one thing wrong with my experience.Keep up the great work!

    Fabulous Vacation Spot

    from

    We spent three nights at the Westin in Whistler and had a wonderful time. Our room was spacious, yet cozy and had fabulous amenities. We are hotel snobs and the Westin was above and beyond our standards.

    Loved the heavenly bed, bathrobes, the full kitchen, the view of Whistler Village and the spacious bathroom with soaker tub. The concierge was extremely helpful and knowlegeable. She had great biking, hiking and golf recommendations. And the restaurant was wonderful too.

    Our waiter was very friendly and made us feel most welcome. There are also washer and dryer units on every floor which was very convenient.

    We will most definitely stay at the Westin next time we return to Whistler. Also note that there are great deals on Orbitz/Expedia but they do not include the $8 resort fee - which is minimal - but nice to know about.

    Nice Palce

    from

    Spent two nights there and found the hotel to be everything I expected from a Westin. The staff was great! The concierge (Tina) was knowledgable and understood what we needed each time we spoke with her.

    The valet guys were great. All around great time. Hated to leave.

    Great first visit

    from

    We had a great time during this frist visit to Whistler, our hotel has a unique location, in the middle but not among Whistler´s life. We look forward to going again, together with some relatives.

    My favourite hotel anywhere!

    from

    I travel frequently for work, but when I travel for pleasure, my favourite spot is The Westin Resort & Spa in Whistler. I compare all other hotel rooms to these - they all have gas fireplaces, kitchens, deep soaker tubs and high speed internet. The Heavenly Beds truly are heavenly. The Avello spa is devine - their pedicure lounge is a must! The location is also perfect - right beside the lifts to both Whistler and Blackcomb and right in the heart of the main village with all of the shops and restaurants - not to mention great nightlife! Also don't miss out on the Westin's restaurant - great food! All these aspects, make it my favourite hotel in North America.

    It was great

    from

    Was a very nice place. The room was nice. Loved the duvet covers, with lots of pillows and of course King sized bed. Watch out for the little piece of paper you are suppose to put on the bed if you want the sheets changed. Otherwise they just remake the bed. (if staying more than one night)

    Otherwise I would have liked the pool to be available until later for the guests.

    The kitchen was Fully outfitted so bring your own food and save a big buck!

    Went to the spa and it as nice too. Enjoyed a massage but choose the longer ones. Seems to be too short.

    A terrific place - we were very sad to leave

    from

    My kids had complained to me that they were likely the only ones in their school who have never been out of the country, so I opted for British Columbia, Canada (it was close, safe, and relatively inexpensive.) I am a skier (although I did much more when I was much younger), so I planned a couple of days at Whistler (I had never been there before). There were great deals, so we opted for the nicest rated hotel - the Westin.

    I should first point out some of my biases. I'm a lifelong Californian, so I've been conditioned to think that California has the best of everything - the weather, geography, economy, and even ski resorts. I had thought that Heavenly Valley and Squaw Valley were world-class. So I was in for a great surprise when I skied Whistler. Squaw and Heavenly cannot hold a candle to Whistler/Blackcomb. And the Village was as advertised: it's very pedestrian-friendly and a nice place to stroll around. It's quite a departure from the schlocky area in South Lake Tahoe.

    The Westin itself is gorgeous, as you would expect. All rooms would make terrific studio apartments - they include ranges, ovens, microwaves, refrigerators, and dishwashers. (Although I doubt many guests actually cook there.) The indoor/outdoor pool was enjoyed by myself and my kids, although my only minor complaint was that, as it was spring break for most kids, both indoor and outdoor jacuzzis were packed. The staff was very friendly and courteous, as you would expect from Canadians (I am stereotyping here, but we Americans can take lessons from Canada.) The location is an added plus - the gondola is essentially a one minute walk.

    I recommend the Westin highly. And I'll be back, hopefully soon....

    [Removed] and I drove out of Surrey in our borrowed Explorer and took the Sea to Sky highway up to Whistler. We made a few viewpoint stops along the way but not as many as I wanted as I kept missing them. The signs don't come early enough for me, I guess.

    We took a very short hike from the parking lot to Shannon Falls then got back in the …

As neither of us knew anything about skiing, Robbie gave us lots of helpful tips including the best way to carry our skis, do up our boots etc. We spent the morning finding our ski-legs on a very small slope, almost like a snowy field. We practiced 'sliding' in skis, then learnt how to stop (very important!!), how to walk up the ...
