Editor's Analysis
Updated Jan 20, 2014
Overview
This group of townhouse properties is situated in north Whistler Village, within a 1-minute drive of the Sea-to-Sky Highway and within a 5-minute walk of the Olympic Plaza. This property is well suited for guests who prefer self-catering accommodations and for guests who do not need to be within a short walk of the ski lifts.

This property offers hotel rooms and townhouse units, which are all smoke free. All rooms and units include free Wi-Fi, a TV, a DVD player, a coffeemaker and a mini-fridge. Most units also have air conditioning. 

One- and two-bedroom units also include a full kitchen (including a dishwasher), a private balcony, a sofabed and en suite laundry facilities. Select one-bedroom units also include a private hot tub and/or a jetted tub in the bathroom, while two-bedroom units have two bathrooms and a private hot tub. 

Wheelchair-accessible units are not available and some townhouse units have multiple levels accessible only by stairs. These units are privately owned and therefore the availability of free Wi-Fi differs from unit to unit. Free parking is available on site (one space per unit) and pets are not permitted.

Other on-site amenities include a courtyard, an outdoor heated pool, a hot tub, bike/ski storage and a sauna. This property does not have an on-site restaurant.

The Whistler Museum and the Plaza Galleries are both about 6 minutes away on foot, while the main lift area, the Whistler Convention Centre and the Whistler Art Gallery are all about a 15-minute walk away. There is also a public shuttle service, which provides transportation from the north village area to the lifts. The Upper Village, including the Blackcomb lifts, is about 16 minutes away by car.

The Whistler Airport (YWS) is about a 6-minute drive away. (All walking and driving time estimates: Google Maps)
