The hotel perfectly marries a rustic mountain sensibility with European grace via peaked roofs, slate floors, wooden beams and lots of plush leather sofas. The personalized service makes this huge resort feel like a boutique hotel, and the location at the base of Blackcomb Mountain is ideal for those who want the feeling of a true retreat — even though buzzy Whistler Village is just a 20-minute walk away.
Bed and Bath
Warm shades of mocha, latte and cream with dashes of burgundy lend a masculine tone to the luxe mountain vibe. The requisite flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations are there, of course, as are gas fireplaces in comfortable sitting areas that lead outside to private balconies overlooking the forest and snow-covered peaks. Huge baths are stocked with L’Occitane products and outfitted with his-and-hers sinks, soaking tubs and separate showers that feature walls inlaid with slate.
Sidecut is a sleek steakhouse featuring an open fireplace and an 1,800-degree infrared grill that cooks Canadian prime beef to juicy perfection. Right outside is the heated patio, which has its own fireplace where kids (and kids at heart) roast marshmallows after dinner. For après cocktails and live music, guests stop at the swanky Fifty Two 80 lounge. And the spa offers rejuvenating facials and balancing treatments such as the fruit crush body wrap.
In the Area
Sip a local BC microbrew or cocktail at Garibaldi Lift Company, a favorite après bar and lounge for hikers, bikers and skiers. Melt away muscle soreness during a hot-and-cold hydrotherapy treatment at Scandinave Spa, a 20,000-square-foot outdoor spa surrounded by a spruce and cedar forest. Araxi features a delicious farm-to-table menu that brings the best produce and meats from the Pemberton Valley to your plate. Sip vodka in the subzero Belvedere Ice Room at Bearfoot Bistro.
How to Get There
Service and amenities were a standout for this property considering it is a larger chain. The base-mountain and in hotel ski/board service is more convenient than anything I have experienced at any of the Colorado or Utah resorts. Rooms are in-line with other 4-5 star chains but have a mountain resort feel and were on the modern side, the amenities are the standout ~ health and spa facilities, unique pool grounds and very "boutique-like" beverage cart in the afternoons that offers cocktails and complimentary hot chocolate and s'mores by the fire pit. Resort shuttle to-and-from town was nice. Was great to travel to BC in March, we got lucky with some 50 degree blue sky days and historically march is their powder month fyi.
This is a beautiful resort nestled in whistler valley. The staff is most polite and helpful. The view from the room is incomparable and room itself is very comfortable. They also have wine tasting everyday of the week. It’s minutes away from lost lake and whistler marketplace. We didn’t take the facility of pick up and drop but it’s provided for. They also have an awesome gym with group exercise routine. Spa is also beautiful. All in all it’s totally worth it. An unforgettable experience.
