Summit Lodge Boutique Hotel

Whistler, Canada

The hotel

Summit Lodge is certainly doing something right — after all, happy travellers named it ‘Canada’s Best Ski Boutique Hotel’ at the World Ski Awards three years in a row. That’s partly down to its exclusive location, surrounded by Whistler Village’s après ski restaurant scene — although it holds its own in the dining stakes, with an upscale tapas joint and high-end sushi bar. It ticks off all those luxury ski resort musts too, including a deluxe spa; complimentary WiFi access; private outdoor patio with heated pool and hot tub; swanky suites with cosy fireplaces, soaking tubs, kitchenettes, and balconies with village or forest views; and even free summertime bike rental. But Summit Lodge also has a cheeky side, with fun flashes of hot pink, vivid turquoise, and electric purple giving a mischievous twist to your suite’s otherwise natural and neutral Canadian décor.

The main village seemed quite busy with some lodges above bars and shops. This lodge was away from the main area by a few streets and felt quieter. The rooms were large and comfy, with a nice feel to the lodge overall. The hot tub was nice after a long day of walking the trails. The hotel also has parking attached which was useful.

Towels large, bathrobes in room. Decent water pressure. Breakfast voucher didn't include hot food. Gas fireplace in room. No gym onsite. Good soundproofing in rooms, with windows closed couldn't hear others. Read less
