Tantalus Lodge Whistler

Stayed in a 2 bedroom for 2 nights . Great value for such a large unit so close to the village. Staff were very nice and helpful and parking is reasonable compared to other Whistler lodging. The unit is completely self contained and with 4 adults it was great having 2 bathrooms. I appreciate that they allowed our dogs into the hotel as well. While quite a bit older than some of the other hotels it was very clean and comfortable.

We loved this hotel. Came to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. It’s about a 5 minute walk to the village. Suite was very large. 1 bedroom with a queen, kitchenette stocked with dishes, living room and dining area. Large opening patio doors that had its own private deck that had stairs to walk down onto the property. We faced a nice open grassy space with the tennis courts. Nice pool area. Really enjoyed the location and every aspect of this place.

I had booked a condo through Airbnb for my visit to Whistler. Upon arrival I found out that the siding on the condo building was being replaced. That meant having two men bang with hammers on the living room wall, right behind the couch. This was supposed to last our entire stay.
After travelling all the way from Vancouver Island with my parents and a dog there was no way we were going to be able to stay at the condo.
This caused a very stressful situation for us. I googled “pet friendly accommodations in Whistler” and called the first one on the list, Tantalus Resort Lodge. Boy, am I ever glad I did!
The receptionist that answered the phone was a very helpful & polite man (Travis). He informed me that he had a pet friendly room available and welcomed us to come and see the room.
Not only did he walk us all the way to the other side of the building to show the room, he also gave us a two bedroom suite for the price of a one bedroom. All this with a smile & a very friendly attitude.

After such a horrible start to our vacation, Travis & Tantalus Resort Lodge saved the day and the rest of our stay.

Lodge was a fantastic place to stay, so close to the whistler town square with access to great shops, restaurants and bars. We were lucky enough to get a 2 bedroom lodge with a kitchenette. Fantastic as we had plenty of space, were able to cook some meals and even got to do laundry as they had a very affordable guest laundry on site. Very clean, fantastic facilities and close to everything you want to do and see.

 

We have been to this property several times over the previous years, and always enjoy it. On this visit, the windows and patio doors have been replaced, so makes it even quieter than before, and the doors are so easy to open and close! They have a great pool, and a bike storage, we use every time, but do bring your own lock, just to be sure. It is in a great location, as it is less than a 5 minute walk to the lifts in the Village. Love their 2 bedroom suites, with 2 full bathrooms, and full kitchen as it is great for 2 couples, or families. Also have secure underground parking, and free Wi-Fi. Elevator to level 4, but Premier Suites on Level 5 with 16 steps. All rooms with balconies, but 2 in opposite directions in the Premier Suites.

I like spacious rooms there, location and pet policy (dogs can be left in rooms unattended).
We stayed in 2 bedroom unit with full kitchen. Overall unit was clean, bedding and towels were nice and fresh.
Though there were some shortcomings.
Kitchen is a bit “bare”. Would be nice to have some basics like salt, sugar, pepper, oil, paper towels or dish towels, napkins, like in some other hotels with full kitchens. The selection of pots, pans and cooking utensils is also very limited, so if you plan on cooking keep that in mind.
This was our second stay in this hotel and I can say that not all units are the same. Some units look better than the others. Last year we had also 2 bedroom with full kitchen, and that unit made a great impression on me (I would have given 5 stars). This time unit looked a bit older, with older furniture, distinctive smell, and an odd bunk bed in hallway between bedrooms (we didn’t book unit with bunk beds).

Just got back from February half term staying for a week at Tantalus Lodge in Whistler. Perfect family condo with two separate bedrooms, two bathrooms, huge lounge and well equipped kitchen.
Heating was brilliant, easy to change room to room so that we could dry ski wear overnight in lounge, whilst keeping bedrooms cool enough to sleep in. There is an open fire, with suitable burning material available from reception (type of reclaimed wooden logs), but the heating was so good we never used it.
Fridge was a bit noisy at night, but quietened down when we filled it up and it could stay at temperature easier.
We stayed in room 304, which was near the end of the long corridor on the third floor (ground floor being the first floor). There was a floor above us, but it was never noisy during the night.
The swimming pool and two spa’s are brilliant, very warm and we swam nearly every day after skiing. There are towels available at reception, we tended to go down in swimwear wearing flip flops (thongs for the ozzies), and carrying our clothes to change into afterwards. There was snow around the pool but the water is very warm and steaming.
Although the lift is very close, a 5 minute walk maximum, there is a shuttle minibus that takes you half way there every couple of minutes; this is owned and run by the lodge and at quiet times, when not waiting for skiers, you could get a lift anywhere in the village. I took it on our last day to the museum. Although it is such a short walk, you do need to go up and down a small hill and whilst carrying ski’s and wearing boots, well, we used it every day !
There is no restaurant at all, but in the lobby there are vending machines for drinks, crisps, chocolates, coffee, etc. And there is an ice machine.
When we stayed, the hotel did a promotional $100 voucher for the supermarket in town. We used this and our shopping came to $75, so the other $25 was still on credit on the card, this we used later in the week.
With $2 to the UK £, we did finding eating out was cheap, so rarely cooked in, but did make breakfast every day. Pancakes, bacon and maple syrup !!!
The hotel claims only 3*’s, but we found it excellent value for money, everything was clean and the rooms were cleaned daily by great and friendly staff. There was a sign saying the staff did not wash up for you, but the first day we came back and found the dirty washing we had left to soak (from making bacon) had been put into the dishwasher and turned on for us. We did not even realise there was a dishwasher !!!
Large flat screen TV in lounge, lots of channels but would not play movies on a USB stick (only audio and picture viewing via USB). Free wifi in rooms.
We would stay here again, summer or winter. It is not a 5* hotel, but has everything you need and is perfect for a family. Our kids are 13 and 15 years old.

Went to whistler for work and stayed here. Large cozy room that I stayed in that was more condo like than hotel room with a wood fireplace. Friendly staff, hot tub and free hot chocolate in the lobby. No lounge or restaurant, that’s the only reason it only received 4 stars from me. But close to the lower village, so it wasn’t a huge deal.

I was at the Tantalus Lodge with a very large group. The staff was almost non-existent and not very helpful when you got their attention. The whole of Whistler-Blackcomb is not very large, but the Tantalus shuttle stopped running at 5:15pm. Walking in ski boots is not easy and even worse when going up hill

I have been to many resorts on my own and with groups and the effort put forth by the staff was nill.

The property is very well taken care of. It has all the things you need for a week away from home. Nice laundry elevator, shuttle back and forth to the hill. Comfortable rooms. The only complaints I have is that the WIFI, is really slow and the shuttle only rubs til 5:15 pm.

I have stayed at “The Tantalizer” at least twice a year for the past 3 years while mountain biking in Whistler. Some of the rooms are a little banged up but for the price you pay during the summer it’s still a great deal The suites are huge and reasonably well-kept after the renovations they have done over the past couple seasons – the bathrooms in particular are much improved. It’s not the most luxurious place in Whistler but the location is good (just down the hill 5 min from the village) and the pool-hot tub area is excellent. There is a decent laundry facility, two secure bike storage rooms, and even a bike wash area. It does sometimes get a little loud at night when the party crowd comes home, but that’s part of Whistler’s charm….right?

If you are up for a walk into Whistler Village and do not mind some banged up rooms, then Tantalus is for you! I loved the mountain cabin feel to the lodge upon entering. However, once we got to our floor and into our rooms, it was pretty clear why our stay was reasonably cheap. The rooms are spacious, the amenities are great, and you have everything you could need in the kitchenette. If you can overlook the wear and tear that ages the lodge, Tantalus is a great bang for your buck!

My experience with this hotel was very positive. I was visiting whistler last weekend and on the way home from town I misplaced my new cellphone somewhere along the way. I looked everywhere but gave up and left whistler thinking it was gone forever. Losing that phone had a very negative knock-on effect for me over the next few days.

I was relieved when one of the front desk agents of the Tantalus, Matt, found my phone, tracked me down and got in touch. The other agents and managers walked me through the process of having the phone couriered to me, and three days later I have my precious phone back.

It’s nice to know that the staff here are honest, trustworthy and selfless. They went out of their way to help out a stranger and I really appreciate their effort. Excellent client service, would recommend!

Review of Tantalus Lodge, Whistler

This is an older property. But we were happy with all it had to offer as far as space and amenities. The walk isn’t bad to the restaurants or lifts. A good place to keep costs low if you are with a group.
