Editor's Review
Updated Feb 21, 2013
This all-suite property is situated at the base of Whistler Creekside (ski area located south-west of Whistler Village). This hotel is well-suited to guests who prefer a less crowded ski resort of Whistler Creekside and are looking for apartment-style accommodations.

This hotel is 100% smoke-free. All suites include a full kitchen (including dishware, cookware and a dishwasher), separate living room, dining room and bedroom areas, a washer and dryer, a fireplace, a private balcony, individual climate control, an iron and ironing board, free Wi-Fi, a soaker tub, a sofabed, a TV with a DVD player and a hair dryer. One, two and three-bedrooms suites, which accommodate four to eight people, are available.

Underground parking is available on site for $15 per night and pets are permitted for an additional fee of $25 per night.

This property does not offer an on-site restaurant. However, there are several restaurants and bars located within a 5-minute walk of this property.

On-site recreational facilities include an outdoor heated pool, two hot tubs, a eucalyptus steam room, a fitness centre, a games room and a media room (two movie showings daily). Other on-site amenities include ski storage, dry cleaning service, concierge service and conference facilities. Check-in for this hotel is located at the neighbouring Legends property.

The Whistler Creekside Gondola is a 1-minute walk away and provides access to all Whistler and Blackcomb ski trails. The Creekside Market (grocery store) and the Whistler Mountain Ski Club are both about 2 minutes away on foot. 

Access to the Sea-to-Sky Highway is a 1-minute drive away, while the Nita Lake Valley Trail is a 3-minute drive away (or a 7-minute walk away). Whistler Village (shopping, restaurants, conference centre and nightlife venues) is 4 minutes away by car. (All walking and driving time estimates: Google Maps)
