How to Get There
If it was any other hotel than a Westin, I probably would have given it an average rating, but I expect more from a brand like Westin.
The location of this hotel cannot be beat! It’s steps from the Whistler village gondolas and the equipment valet is incredibly convenient.
The restaurants have great food! Breakfast had a lot of variety and was a great way to start each day. It was understaffed and most of the staff gathered around the reception.
The bar food was definitely way above what was expected for a bar. I’m only sorry I didn’t go there sooner, so I could have gone back. The bar staff were awesome.
Now, the not so good...
The front desk staff clearly have one concern only, a job that keeps them close to the mountain. Looking after guests is definitely secondary! Gold, Platinum, & Platinum Elite guests, don’t expect to receive any of your hotel benefits here, they hide behind their “resort” status so they don’t have to adhere to the perks you’re used to. Can’t speak to Titanium as I’m only Platinum Elite. Despite checking in on the app and giving lots of notice, I had to wait hours for my room (well into the late afternoon).
The rooms are dated and the beds old! They’ve tried to cover up for the fact that these beds are less than heavenly with cheap mattress toppers. Make sure you get a room away from the elevators. This being an older hotel, the walls are thin and you’ll hear the elevators all night.
All-in-all NOT worth the price.
Oh ya... received a “sorry about your luck” email from their “Director of rooms” after sharing my feedback with them. He clearly can only manage inanimate objects, as his people skills suck.
I have been visiting Whistler for over 20 years several times a year, which means I have had the opportunity to stay at almost all the hotels there. After a stay at the Westin I was hooked, it is now the only hotel I stay at in Whistler. In terms of location it cannot be beaten, you can walk to the main gondola in about one minute! The rooms recently went through major upgrades. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant severs up some of the best food in Whistler. If you are going to Whistler I would highly recommend staying here.
We spent several days here at the Westin in Whistler in mid-April. While we are not skiers, we had plenty to do here, from countless parks, trails, and other great outdoor activities, to spending time in the village (shopping, restaurants, etc.). The Westin hotel is amazing, it is right in the village and everything is walking distance. The restaurant in the hotel, Grill & Vine, was wonderful and has a fantastic breakfast. Oh, and the views from this hotel are gorgeous! We had a 1 bedroom suite with a fireplace, and a balcony overlooking the hotel with a view of the mountains. The pic below is from our balcony in the east tower. Next time I’m in Whistler, I’m staying here at the Westin!
Stayed in Westin Whistler for 4 days for a ski trip. There was a miscommunication during booking, but was taken care of quickly by Director Andrew Misquitta. Thanks Andew for the understanding and quick turn.
The hotel is close to Whistler gondola, probably the most convenient location in the village. The ski valet is awesome, and this year I found that Westin set a tent next to the door of gondola for ski valet service, a step further and a big plus!
The hotel's staffs are attentive and friendly, we used the pool and gym everyday, the staff even offered us a pair of earphones while watching TV on treadmill. All the care is so natural, just like at home. The front desk is always helpful as usual, they listen and understand your needs, and do the best they can to adapt to your stay. Top notch hotel service, thanks Westin.
In the past we stayed in couple different hotels in Whistler village, but Westin is always on the top of our list. Without doubt next time we will choose Westin again! Thanks Westin for your excellent work and see you next year.
I have been coming to Whistler since I was a child and have stayed in many hotels and rentals over the years. About 8-10 years ago we stayed at the Westin for the first time and have stayed here on every Whistler trip since then. The hotel is in the perfect location - next to the village and easy access to the slopes but also close to the Valley Trail system for people who choose to hike, walk or bike instead of ski.
There are two towers so you can be closer to the village action in the East Tower or in a quieter location in the West Tower. The hotel is large and has great amenities for everyone - young children, adults and teens. The rooms are comfortable for a short stay or a long stay with a well designed kitchen, dining table and desk area. There is also plenty of storage in the rooms to unpack and feel at home.
The best part about the hotel for us has been the wonderful staff and how every time we have come to stay they have tried their best to place us in either the specific room we request or our desired location in the hotel. We've stayed in many room types and they are all great. They are also ready to supply extra pillows, blankets or anything we need to make our stay comfortable. They really work hard to make sure that your stay is the best it can be. We come up often with friends and everyone that we've encouraged to stay at the Westin has been happy and come back for return stays.
The Westin is the best choice to stay in Whistler and we highly recommend it!
