Very disappointed. The room was sparse, to say the least. The only décor in the entire room was a pair of small paintings hung side-by-side on the entryway wall. The rest of the room was absolutely barren. Décor may not make the bed any softer, but it does give a homey feel to the room. With nothing whatsoever to cheer the place up–no other artwork, no objects, nothing–the room had a very sterile feel to it.
In addition, we were charged 10CAD per day upcharge for a ‘mountain view’. Unfortunately, the ‘mountain’ was not Whistler or Blackcomb, but instead a distant mountain to the North. The real view was of the driveway up to the entry of the hotel, along with the backside of an adjacent hotel. Not much for an extra $10.
The location of the Hilton in the Village is great; very close to the lifts and a short walk into the center of the village. High marks there, but the room itself just didn’t feel inviting.
Also, the telephone check-out system didn’t seem to be working.
Also, the food was very high priced and service friendly but slow. (When you don’t like your room, everything else is just magnified.)
And just a comment to the designers of the room–the spa tub was nice and deep, but if you just wanted to use the shower, you had to step up and way over to get in or out. not exactly an easy feat for some older, less pole-vault trained bathers.
We had thoughts of staying at the Hilton for Christmas, but given the holiday rates they charge, and the lack of amenities, we think not.
Hilton Whistler hotel is ideally located in the heart of Whistler Village . Named by Conde Nast as the 10th top resort hotel in Canada the hotel is steps away from the chairlifts of the legendary Whistler/Blackcomb resort.
