Overview

The Review

During the 2010 Winter Olympics, Creekside was privileged to host the alpine events. Only a five-minute bus ride from party-hearty Whistler, it occupies a quiet corner of the famed ski resort. At Evolution, a cozy complex of three- and four-story lodges, they refer to the units as “resort homes.” They’re basically condos, individually owned, but seamlessly managed — like, say, a hotel. To access the front desk and concierge, you simply cross the street to the Legends resort.

Imagine stripes on the carpets and bedspreads, heated bathroom floors, soaker tubs and fireplaces framed with white brick instead of the ubiquitous stone. Now add a washer and dryer, Miele appliances, Kohler fixtures and LG flat-screen TVs.

Even the smallest one-bedroom units have big balconies and full gourmet kitchens. The summer crowd will be stoked to hear that all units — unlike those in most ski resorts, which think humans evaporate with the snow — now have air conditioners.

A heated pool, game room and poolside barbecue are just a few of the family-friendly offerings. Better still, the media room offers two movies a night — one for children and one for adults. And how about this: The young guns get their own hot tub, so you don’t have to worry about sharing yours with a Pokemon fan.

The single snowboarding beer-drinker type might not appreciate the serenity at Evolution (or in Creekside), but that doesn’t mean you can’t find ways to stir up trouble. A local bus stops right in front of the hotel to whisk you away to the hip bars and clubs of Whistler Village — and it runs well into the wee hours so you can drink ’til the bartender calls it quits.

Very nice finish. Very good size room (double suites+sitting room+balcony)

Room is at very good size of 1000 sq ft + extremely comfortable balcony with outdoor dining table & 4 chairs. Extremely well layout. Washroom with both huge bathtub and separate shower unit

Stylish interior with almost full function kitchen (not sure if you can cook?) + dish washer.

Indoor carpark within the same block.

5 minute drive to village and activity center

Good for a couple of nights

We stated at Evolution for a couple of nights during our road trip. We picked Creekside because it’s cheaper and more quiet than Whistler.
Although the rooms a quite dark as you need to keep the sun out of the room when you a on mountain side of the lodge.
Kitchen is fully equiped for a home cooked meal and the super market is across the road.
You’ve to check in with the next door hotel which is part of the group. Small pool and bbq area. Parking below the lodge at a fee

Sweet escape

This hotel is everything I could desire.

I loved that I didn’t have to walk past a reception desk every day (and for those who don’t like this, the walk is literally 40 seconds away).

Amenities: Sauna, steam room, pool and two jacuzzis. All very relaxing, clean and not crowded, at least while we were there. You’re surrounded by trees, it offers such a peaceful escape. They also have a media room that has pool, foos ball, two Nintendo switches and a media room with a wide variety of movie selections. They have a gym, it’s a bit smaller, has treadmills, bikes, elliptical, 3 machines that all target different areas of the body and dumbbells. You could definitely get yourself a good workout and the view to the sun terrace is an added plus.

We stayed in a one bedroom and it was incredibly spacious. A full kitchen, a living room with a tv, couches, a chair and a fireplace. A bedroom with a balcony that also has access to the fireplace and another tv in it. A bathroom that has heated floors, a bathtub and a glass shower. ooooh, let me not forget, you have your own washer and dryer in the room too.

The location is 2.5 miles from downtown Whistler. It’s a 6 min drive, hour walk, or a bus ride away. I didn’t take the bus. We opted for the taxis or walking. A taxi cost us about $11 each way. The walk is gorgeous and they have a trail made for that or bikes. There’s two lakes close by and they are stunning! There’s a slope and gondola near by (didn’t use so I don’t know where or what but I can see it out my window).

There’s a market, Starbucks, and some other shops that are a 2 min walk away.

Overall, this place is wonderful for its value. It gives you so much to make yourself feel at home yet also feel like you’re on holiday. If I were to do it all over again, I’d stay here 1,000 more times.
