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.

Thoroughly cozy and happy for 3 days in our deluxe queen studio to celebrate our anniversary. Room was charmingly decorated, large and extremely well appointed. Comfortable bed with enough pillows. Two closets - a small one at the entrance for wet clothes, full kitchenette included toaster, kettle & dishes (cooking supplies avail on request). Other extras that enhanced our visit were gas fireplace, balcony with chairs, iPad (virtual Bible included!), pull out clothesline in tub, sofabed and coffee table, 4 compartment recycle bin - and this was after paring down for covid?! Also iron & ironing board. No daily maid service due to covid but got a quick response to our text for more coffee. Enjoyed a hot tub with same day booking. Great location, quiet but close to Audain & Whistler museums, surrounded by shops and restaurants. Although this seems to be a young person hotel and we are in our sixties, we were very comfortable. Dogs are allowed and we saw them coming and going but never heard them. All staff were lovely. Very strong covid precautions. Very happy to unreservedly recommend. Read less

The hotel reception staff were most knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. All of the hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel was immaculately clean with excellent Covid Measures in place. Masks were mandatory and were also supplied if needed. Our room was very clean and well stocked and if anything was missing, it was immediately supplied after making a phone call to the front desk. The pool/hot tub reservation system worked very well and the facility was always available for the booked time. The hotel is very quiet and sound proof. The hotel is conveniently located next to a variety of restaurants and within walking distance to the Village Centre. We had a most enjoyable and relaxing stay. Read less

We could not recommend this place enough!! The covid safety awareness was great but the comfort , friendly staff , and breakfast service was excellent. We will definitely be back. And being so dog friendly was key. Ripley gives it 10/10!!
