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.

{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/editorialreviews/10880/pgal-22489-1308589357-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”One-Bedroom Suites have a washer and dryer, Miele appliances and LG flat-screen TVs.”}When I stepped inside the condo, I was pleasantly surprised to find that someone had done away with the musty old wood-and-antler motif. 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.

Great stay for the "whole" family (pet friendly)
Reviewed 2 months ago

We booked a 2 bedroom suite for our family of 4 (plus dog). The pros: The staff were great and very friendly. The kids LOVED the amenities (pool, hot tub, sauna, games room and media theater room for a private screening). Nice touch is that you can stay and use the amenities even after checkout. The room was comfortable and well appointed with everything you could need and we would certainly stay here again. They provided dog bed, treats, bowls and poop bags... very dog friendly.
The cons: The room felt a little tired and in need of some TLC (was probably high end 5-10 years ago). I think because it's pet friendly you see the wear and tear. the carpet needed a clean (shampoo) and some of the doors had scratches on them. We also had a maintenance issue with the AC and our shower (the hotel was quick to fix these things). However when you pay and extra $26 a night for your pet you expect that money to be used to maintain the suites so you don't feel like you're in a "pet friendly" room. The room was also soooo hot and hard to cool (perhaps part of the AC issue) but in October you wouldn't expect to need AC.

Great weekend stay
Reviewed 3 months ago

For anyone with dogs, this hotel is going to be very accommodating. My girlfriend and I, as well as a third friend visited over the weekend. Very pleased, nothing I can say that was particularly negative during the stay.

We had visited whistler 2 years ago and stayed at another hotel (I can't remember the name, but it was in the village, also dog friendly). This hotel was better, seemed more accommodating to dogs, interior was more modern, and overall more spacious.

Overall, great value for money.

Great Room at a Great Location
Reviewed 4 months ago

At first I was a little worried about being located in Creekside but after checking in, I found that it was a great choice. The room was amazing and having everything there from coffee maker to washing machine, it made for a great trip.

The location is also great as there is a bus stop directly in front of the Hotel. Take bus #20 to the village and back. There is a Tim Horton's right next door and a grocery store across the street. In my mind it was pretty much the perfect place to relax.

Excellent stay !!!

It's located about 3 miles outside Whistler, but that's not a big deal. In fact, it's a bit away from the hubbub.

This place was really beautiful. Well equiped, comfortable and spacious.

There was a gas fireplace between the living room and the balcony. Perfect !!!.

I only wish we could have stayed longer.

Breathtaking beauty and a wonderful place to stay
Reviewed 4 months ago

The condo we stayed in at Evolution was beautifully decorated with a gas fireplace that faces both the living room and the bedroom. We had a peaceful view of tall trees and the mountains from our porch. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was much quieter at Creekside where Evolution is, but it was only a short bus ride to Whistler (or you can walk or bike the trails). The building had a play room for kids and adults and a gym. Outside they have a pool with two jacuzzis - one for adults only next to the sauna and steam room. Next to that they had tables and a grill if you wanted to cook. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had and Evolution was a big part of it.
