Review of Holiday Inn Hotel Whistler
Let’s start with the good: Location! This hotel is situated in the heart of the Village and only few walking minutes away from the Gondola and all the restaurants and shops are right there were the hotel is.
The hotel itself is average. Most ski resort hotels are a bit more rundown then their other locations and this hotel was no exception. We stayed at the 3rd floor which has an odd configuration: You can’t get to it from the main lobby elevator. Instead you have to go out, get on another elevator, ride it to 4th floor, drag your luggage across the length of the hallway and get into another elevator and ride down to 3rd.
There is no restaurant or room service on the property which was a bit confusing since one of their advertisements was “kids eat free”. Turns out they give you a voucher to one of the local restaurants.
Room quality was relatively good and it was very clean and well maintained. We got the room with the Murphy bed and it had washer/dryer, coffer maker, stove and dishwasher with dishes and cooking ware.
The staff were hit an miss. When we arrived late at night, the gentleman was rather dismissive and not very attentive. At one point replying to “we are HH gold members” with “so what”? The ladies who work the day shift were significantly more polite and helpful.
Other reviewers mentioned noise level and this is to be expected if you are smack in middle of the action. So yes, I did wake up once or twice by loud young people leaving the bars and restaurants. But that’s part of being in the heart of action and is in no way a fault of the hotel.
