    Want to Walk to the slopes? This is the place

    by

    Westin likes to advertise and bill itself as top rated Ski Resort Hotel. I haven't been to the "competition" but can say its one fine place. We have stayed here 3 consecutive years. Heavenly beds and a nice indoor/outdoor pool and jacuzzis make for great after slope relaxation.

    The best thing is the ski valet. At the beginning of the day you collect your ski from near the hotel entrance and walk 5' to the gondolas. At the end of the day there is a valet waiting for you at the bottom of the slope. You give him your skis and you're off to whatever you want to do.

    There is a great spa in the hotel.

    One thing I've noticed is that the inhotel businesses are doing poorly and a couple empty retail spaces makes for a dead shopping area in the Hotel. Shouldn't be a concern as you are a 5' walk to the mall with hundreds of stores and food options.

    Unique Quality: Walking distance to the slopes.

    As any other spa, the enviroment tends to achieve balance and vitality. I only took a tour of the spa and paid attention to architectural and design detailing as those are the most influencial providers of the human experience in an interior spa environment.

    They do offer number of signature spa treatments, such as Thai Massage, Satago massage, Aromatherapy Massage, Reiki, Thalassotherapy wraps, Hydrotherapy and facial treatments.

    Unique Quality: Conceptual design was based on simplicity which is very visible throughout the interior spaces. Space felt inviting, comfortable, and relaxing.

    From the moment I arrived here I was ruined, ruined forever. I did not know it at the time, but never again was I to be satisfied with anything inferior to this hotel's luxurious beds, huge, fluffy bathrobes, flawless concierge service, and stunningly beautiful mountain views. The complimentary morning coffee was from Starbucks. The exercise room was made of glass so that while you worked out you could view the mountains or the indoor or outdoor pool area. Did I mention the marble bathroom and fully applianced in-room kitchenette? Or the gorgeous shops in the lobby? The world-class spa? My wish was their command during my stay in this exceptional hotel--and you all wondered why all my other hotel reviews sounded whiny?

    Unique Quality: As close to perfection as is humanly achievable.

    Best Hotel in Town!

    by

    Beautiful and perfectly situated 50 yards from the Whistler gondola.

    The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is courteous and the spa/fitness center has everything you'd expect.

    Hotel guests can take advantage of free ski/boarding equipment storage.

Best place to stay for location and price

by TripAdvisor Member frequenttraveler342

The Westin Whistler Village is a great hotel and a fantastic location. If you want the luxury of having the ski gondola just a stone's throw from your hotel room, then this is the place.

Amentities are top notch with 2 hot tubs, a pool (1/3 indoor, 2/3 outdoor, 80 degrees), and a full gym. We did not go to the spa but it had a full array of services. The Vida spa is a chain with a branch that is also located in the Fairmont Chateau Whistler.

Rooms were excellent. We were in a one bedroom suite with a view of the mountains. The gondola could be seen right outside our window. Our room had a full kitchen (with dishwasher, granite counters), soak tub, shower, and TVs in the bedroom and living room (which also has a sofabed and is good for families). We were upgraded without difficulty from a base room to the suite without difficulty. (Starwood Gold status may have helped). Beds were comfortable (usual Westin Heavenly bed) but our linens seemed a bit coarse.

Overall, the service was excellent. Aubergine grill has great food and a decent wine list. Their food is on par with the top restaurants in the area but you also get 10% off your bill if you are a hotel guest.

Don't rent skis at the Salomon store (expensive) unless you demand Salomon equipment. Instead, go to Summit ski rentals and use the 10% coupon you get at the visitor center. Summit is right across the courtyeard from the Westin.

We considered staying at the Fairmont and Four Seasons but we are glad that we didn't. First, they are located in Upper Village, which is a 15 minute uphill hike from Whistler village. To get there, you need to take a shuttle bus (the hotels have their own). However, there is NOTHING to do in Upper Village. In contrast the Westin is at one end of Whistler Village, and you have instant accesst to over 30 (probably more) restuarants, dozens of shops, and lots of bars and a handful of clubs. There is a nice gourmet grocery store not far from the Westin, which is a great place to stock up to make prepare your own foor to wine and dine in your hotel room.

Overall. we highly recommend the Westin for a great combination of hotel quality, service, amenities, and location. The Four Seasons and Fairmont are great hotels, but only stay there if you want the best room and the best service and don't care about location.

Wonderfully comfortable

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband and our friend just returned from a long weekend from Whistler. The Westin was great! The rooms were very cozy with a lodge feel. The granite counter tops in the kitchenette and bathroom were great.

The service was top notch everywhere we went. We dined at Aubergine's for breakfast every morning at the huge and very lashish buffet. There were chefs on had to make fresh omlets and plenty of fresh fruit and anything else that you could ever want.

We made a stop at the spa for an afternoon of pampering and it was wonderful! The staff was very professional and attentive. The resort itself is so beautiful and was decorated with christmas decorations. There was a long hallway that had upscale shops for all your winter needs.

We were in walking distance of the slopes, shops, and dining. If you love great music and beer and huge piles of chicken nachos you must visit Amsterdam's!

I would highly recommend the Westin and plan to return in the coming months. I am usually a beach girl but was totally blown away by the people and activities that were offered at Whistler. EVERYONE was extremely friendly and happy. Be sure to try snowmobiling and snowboarding. Our lessons were great!

Just OK

by A TripAdvisor Member

The place was just OK. The hotel was nice and clean. Its location is great. There is only one outdoor hot tub. It's usually too crowded to get into. The service was good but the hotel itself was not a very warm place. The decor is just not inviting. The bar stinks. I would rather drink in my room. This year we are staying at the Fairmont.

Heavenly

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Hotel is excellent and the service is great! Its not only the hotel but also Whistler itself, which is just so pleasant and great. On your way to Whistler make a quick stop in Vancouver, never seen anything like it. You will be glad you did. The village next to Westin is awesome. Check out Sushi Village and Umberto's.

Delightful

by A TripAdvisor Member

Well, I've been to Whistler dozens of times and my favorite hotel is still the Fairmount Chateau Whistler, but this Westin is no slouch!

Our room, a "Junior Suite" was comfortable and nicely equpped with a small kitchenette, lovely bathrrom with soaker tub and seperate shower. Service was pleasant and professional.

I didn't use the spa facilities but they looked nice.

The biggest surprise was the "Aubergine Grill" restaurant, whose food, though pricey was as excellent as any I have had anywhere!

So why do I prefer the Fairmount? These hotels are similar in quality, first class, but the Fairmount just has a magnificent lobby, which is as comfortable and delightful to sit in for a snack or a drink as it is magnificent to the eye. The Westin's architecture just isn't as nice.

On the other hand, the Westin is right in the village...
