We stayed here from Oct 22-25 as part of a conference. We got a great conference rate and that’s why we stayed here (that and my husband’s work covered most of the cost). Parking is $35/night and their pet fee is $50/night plus tax which is just ridiculous. I don’t mind paying up to $25/night but $50 is unjustifiable in my opinion. They have a strict no pets left unattended in the room policy, but don’t worry you could hire a pet sitter for $17/hr for a 3 hr minimum! Thankfully our dog is small and curls up in a crate to sleep when we are not around so we just took the chance. If you have a bigger dog with a bark you will be in trouble. Every restaurant was overpriced in typical hotel fashion, but to the extreme because it’s Whistler. We ate elsewhere all the time. Wifi is not included in your stay, it’s extra of course. Drinks by the pool were $12-15. Not sure what the other bar prices were because we avoided it.
The hotel itself is great. The rooms are big and well furnished. The bed was a bit too soft for me but that’s just a personal preference. The pool and health club area is gorgeous. My favorite part was that they offer complimentary morning yoga. It was one of the best classes I’ve attended. The instructor was fantastic and I wish I had realized this was a thing before my last day. I would have done it daily.
If you have money and don’t mind spending it, stay here. If you are a bit more budget conscious, you can find other great places in Whistler for a better value with a more flexible pet policy.
