Best Whistler Hotel Deals
Whistler is a legendary resort town that exudes charm and vibrancy, offering a wealth of unique experiences that make it one of the world’s top destinations. The largest and most visited ski resort in North America, Whistler’s abundance expands far beyond the slopes with something perfectly special for everyone. With its bounty of things to do, places to see, and sensations to experience, Whistler is a world of opportunity just beckoning you to explore its riches. Here is a great resource to book a Hotel in Whistler if you are interested.
Nestled amid the Coast Mountains, 125 km (78 mi) north of Vancouver along the gloriously scenic Sea To Sky Highway, Whistler is a wonderland for outdoor enthusiasts and lovers of the finer things in life. With a permanent population of 10,000, Whistler welcomes over two million people annually; and the entire community excels at hospitality. Whistler knows how to show folks a great time, as it proved as Host Mountain Resort for the 2010 Winter Olympics (the first time the IOC has bestowed that designation on a community). All along the stroll and throughout the restaurants and hotels and shops you’ll encounter friendly people who help you feel connected to it all, at peace with nature.
Beyond the old growth forests and craggy peaks, Whistler Village itself is a beautiful sight to behold, with its award-wining pedestrian streets winding alongside shops and hotels with their chalet style roofs and alpine aura. With the right eyes, Whistler takes on a distinctly fairytale vibe. The scene becomes even more magical when it snows, as it does often in the cool winter (with an average annual snowfall of 12m). Yet at any time of the year, you’re bound to experience an awe-inspiring sense of wonder as you explore the three main areas of the resort: Whistler Village, Upper Village, and Creekside each offering something exceptional. The dining is magnificent, with fresh local cuisine and alluring ambience; the shopping is spectacular, with a spectrum of one-of-a-kind finds in cute boutiques; and the nightlife is always energetic. Everything you could ask for is presented in a distinct style that is pure Whistler.
When it comes to accommodation, Whistler offers a wide range of comfortable options with something perfect for every budget. From slope-side chalets to luxurious suites on high, the majority of the hotel rooms in Whistler feature a beautiful alpine design with wood and stone finish. Many come with cozy fireplaces to snuggle up beside and big windows that look out upon the majestic mountain vista. Stay in a privately owned five-bedroom luxury condo with vaulted ceilings and your own hot tub, or a boutique lodge right in the Village with ski-in/ski-out access. Whistler has just the place for you to call your home away from home on your wonderful mountain getaway.
If you’ve come to ski, you’ve come to the right place. Whistler Blackcomb is consistently voted the best ski resort in North America, coming as no surprise to those who’ve experienced its magnificence first hand. With over 200 marked runs spanning 8,171 acres of terrain on two side-by-side mountains, along with 16 alpine bowls and three glaciers, Whistler Blackcomb is nothing short of phenomenal.
Yet while the skiing receives most of the attention, there are plenty of other activities to take part in year-round. In the winter you can explore the backcountry on a snowmobile or snowshoe tour, or go heli-skiing for the ultimate runs. Try out the Whistler Olympic Experience and race a bobsled or a luge down the track. For a more leisurely experience we recommend the Scandinave Spa, where you’ll slide into a state of total relaxation and rejuvenation. After all, the perfect complement to a solid day on the slopes is a soothing massage and a dip in the hot pool. It’s bliss and beauty all around.
The summer months may be the off-season in Whistler, but the town stays bustling with vibrant energy and active people. The mountains and lakes are full of excellent opportunities for sightseeing (such as a ride on the Peak to Peak gondola) as well as hiking and mountain biking. The Mountain Bike Park provides more than 200km of lift-accessed trail riding on over 4,900 vertical feet, making it one of the world’s best. The golfing is excellent and there are plenty of tours available for fishing, whitewater rafting, bear viewing, ATVing, and much more. Nearly every weekend of the year Whistler is hosting interesting conferences and special events and you’re always invited to come take part in the festivities!
Whistler is a world unto itself and an experience that everyone should have on their bucket list. With such an abundance of good times to be had – both on and off the slopes – and a wide array of activities, shopping, dining and accommodation, Whistler is truly an amazing place to visit. Come see for yourself why this world-class resort town is so special. Come experience the magic of Whistler.
