Five of the Best Hotels in Whistler

Smack dab in the middle of two awe-inspiring mountains lies the resort village of Whistler. When you take a stroll down its pedestrian-only walkway, you can’t help but feel the energy and excitement in the air. The mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, are well-known for their incredible skiing and snowboarding, but the village has much to offer too. There are extraordinary restaurants, luxury spas, and unique shops to be enjoyed year round. Here are some Whistler hotels to consider.

      Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre  – Best Location All-Suite Hotel

From this award-wining hotel, it is just a two minute walk to the gondolas that deliver you to the mountain trails. Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre’s modern suites have fireplaces and full kitchens. There are two restaurants and complimentary breakfast daily. Additionally, there is a fitness center, spa, and outdoor heated pool. A wonderful convenience for skiers and golfers is the slope-side valet who takes care of your skis and golf clubs, and their storage.

      Aava Whistler Hotel – Best Budget-Friendly and Eco-Friendly Hotel

      Save money by staying just outside of the resort village at Aava Whistler Hotel, and you will still be only two minutes from the village on foot. The comfortably-decorated rooms, suites and hotel facilities have everything you need to enjoy your stay including a pool, hot tub, sauna, and fitness center. There is also a restaurant that serves breakfast. Check out a complimentary GoPro HD camera or a bicycle for extra fun. Last but not least, Green Key Global has recognized Aava Whistler as an eco-friendly hotel.

      Sundial Boutique Hotel – Best Boutique Hotel


For travelers who like the intimacy of a smaller hotel, Sundial Boutique Hotel will not disappoint. It is the only owner-operated hotel in Whistler. The 49 luxury suites have fireplaces, full-sized kitchens, and heated slate floors. This 4-star hotel also has three restaurants to please your palate, featuring west coast cuisine, Mexican cuisine, and sushi. With discounts for stays of five nights or more, it would be easy to make this your home for a week or so.

       Summit Lodge and Spa – Best Hotel for a Relaxing Cultural Experience


This award winning lodge and spa is filled with original local artwork, and from Summit Lodge and Spa, it is a quick walk to Whistler Museum, where you can learn about the history and culture of Whistler’s mountain life, and Whistler Olympic Plaza, the site of the 2010 Olympic Games medal ceremonies. After a day of activities and experiences, you will surely enjoy the lodge accommodations, spa, and restaurants too.
