How to Get There
My family of 4 stayed at the Sundial for one week in Feb in a one bedroom hot tub room. We have traveled extensively and have a very high service expectation. The staff at the Sundial were exceptional and really made our stay. Justin helped us with our initial online booking requirements (which were extensive) and Deanna was fantastic when we arrived. None of our requests were a problem and all the staff were extremely proactive including the ski valet and room cleaners.
The staff helped arrange groceries, lift tickets and ski hire prior to arrival. The recommended ski hire company even came to our room with a choice of equipment for the family to be fitted so we could hit the slopes the next day. This local knowledge really helped us through our stay and in this particular case with the ski hire was a huge relief after we got off a 10h flight with a 2.5yo and a 6 month old. We were also given contact details of a baby sitting company who were very reliable.
The accomodation was great, decent size for two adults and two small kids. Full kitchen, fire place and sofa bed were a plus. The balcony with a 4 person hot tub were a real feature with a view of the main ski slope. The kids loved the view of the fire and ice show (and fireworks) from the balcony where the local ski instructors performed various tricks through a flaming hoop off a ski jump. I think only two hot tub rooms have this view. We would certainly recommend the hot tub room. The accomodation is a little dated, certainly not modern but clean and well maintained.
There are two great restaurants on the second level of the hotel (Mexican and Sushi). Due to their popularity they do not take bookings but we worked out that you can go on a wait list and they will call the room when a table is ready generally a 45min wait. You can wait in the warmth and comfort of your room and head down the lift without even going outside which might be viewed as a plus by some.
The WB mountain itself was huge with a very large skiable area which two advanced skiers could not completely cover in 5 days. The hotel is located 30m to either Gondola servicing either mountain whims is great if you want to head back to the room to check on kids or warm up.
We are already planning a return trip! Thank you Sundial!
Stayed for two nights in February of 2019. Cannot beat the location - steps from lifts. Property was clean; valet/bell guys were great; friendly housekeeper. Only complaint was/is with management. Purchased three nights ahead of time through Whistler Blackcomb website. My son came down with a 103 degree fever halfway through our trip, so we had to leave after only two nights. I confirmed the hotel had vacancy on our last night - they were not sold out. Even so, they still enforced the cancellation policy and charged the full (>$700/night) nightly charge. I asked if they could perhaps apply it to a future reservation, explained we would be coming back in a few weeks, offered to exchange for an off-peak, weeknight stay instead, etc. Got absolutely no sympathy, no flexibility, nothing from the manager on shift. Even though the hotel wasn't full, he was instead happy to just impose the cancellation fee. Based on the terms and conditions, I think he was entirely able to do so - I'm not suggesting otherwise. I just would have expected a bit more flexibility, that they might have made an effort to work through it with me, etc. Definitely did not receive "boutique" service during that conversation.
After many holidays in Whistler and Blackcombe, this was our first time at the Sundial. The very helpful, friendly team provided great service in a warm relaxed atmosphere. The team of Michelle, Justin, Dee and Cameron were professional, very attentive and di their utmost to make our stay memorable. Also, a very nice gesture when we arrived early and very tired. Much appreciated. We will return.
I have been to Whistler over 25 times and this was my first stay @ the Sundial. I ventured up solo from California on a last minute trip & was originally staying at the property for 1 night but extended it 2 additional nights. The location, property and staff were all exceptional. I would highly recommend staying to anyone traveling to Whistler and want to stay in the Center Village area. I additionally want to recommend the following staff members on their exceptional service during my stay: Rachel, Deanna, Michelle, Cameron, Peter. Aya was the housekeeper assigned to my room and always left the most uplifting and kind notes and kept the room spotless everytime I returned from the mountain. A new Whistler lodging fav - I will be back!
