Westin Resort & Spa Whistler

Whistler, Canada

The hotel

When they created The Westin Resort & Spa in Whistler, they made sure it featured all those rustic stone walls, lodge-befitting wood highlights, and roaring fires every good mountain escape should have. After all, it is set in Canada’s peak outdoor recreation resort, named number one ski resort in North America by SKI Magazine in 2016. Steps from the gondolas and Whistler Village’s heart, its guestrooms feature fireplaces to snuggle around after al fresco adventures, and windows to bring that mountain air in. When you’ve made the most of the mountains, there’s always its Avello Spa & Health Club, gym, hot tubs, and outdoor pool. Not forgetting its dining venues: Grill & Wine, an upmarket take on a grill restaurant, and FireRock Lounge, a cross between a tapas bar and après-ski snug, promising another of those obligatory fireplaces.

We spent several days here at the Westin in Whistler in mid-April. While we are not skiers, we had plenty to do here, from countless parks, trails, and other great outdoor activities, to spending time in the village (shopping, restaurants, etc.).

We spent several days here at the Westin in Whistler in mid-April. While we are not skiers, we had plenty to do here, from countless parks, trails, and other great outdoor activities, to spending time in the village (shopping, restaurants, etc.). The Westin hotel is amazing, it is right in the village and everything is walking distance. The restaurant in the hotel, Grill & Vine, was wonderful and has a fantastic breakfast. Oh, and the views from this hotel are gorgeous! We had a 1 bedroom suite with a fireplace, and a balcony overlooking the hotel with a view of the mountains. The pic below is from our balcony in the east tower. Next time I’m in Whistler, I’m staying here at the Westin! Read less

Stayed in Westin Whistler for 4 days for a ski trip. There was a miscommunication during booking, but was taken care of quickly by Director Andrew Misquitta. Thanks Andew for the understanding and quick turn. The hotel is close to Whistler gondola, probably the most convenient location in the village. The ski valet is awesome, and this year I found that Westin set a tent next to the door of gondola for ski valet service, a step further and a big plus! The hotel's staffs are attentive and friendly, we used the pool and gym everyday, the staff even offered us a pair of earphones while watching TV on treadmill. All the care is so natural, just like at home. The front desk is always helpful as usual, they listen and understand your needs, and do the best they can to adapt to your stay. Top notch hotel service, thanks Westin. In the past we stayed in couple different hotels in Whistler village, but Westin is always on the top of our list. Without doubt next time we will choose Westin again! Thanks Westin for your excellent work and see you next year. Read less

I have been coming to Whistler since I was a child and have stayed in many hotels and rentals over the years. About 8-10 years ago we stayed at the Westin for the first time and have stayed here on every Whistler trip since then. The hotel is in the perfect location - next to the village and easy access to the slopes but also close to the Valley Trail system for people who choose to hike, walk or bike instead of ski. There are two towers so you can be closer to the village action in the East Tower or in a quieter location in the West Tower. The hotel is large and has great amenities for everyone - young children, adults and teens. The rooms are comfortable for a short stay or a long stay with a well designed kitchen, dining table and desk area. There is also plenty of storage in the rooms to unpack and feel at home. The best part about the hotel for us has been the wonderful staff and how every time we have come to stay they have tried their best to place us in either the specific room we request or our desired location in the hotel. We've stayed in many room types and they are all great. They are also ready to supply extra pillows, blankets or anything we need to make our stay comfortable. They really work hard to make sure that your stay is the best it can be. We come up often with friends and everyone that we've encouraged to stay at the Westin has been happy and come back for return stays. The Westin is the best choice to stay in Whistler and we highly recommend it! Read less

Me and my friends stayed at The Westin Resort and Spa in Whistler and had a wonderful mini vacation. The resort is walking distance to the village and the view from our room was beautiful! The service was exceptional and we definitely will be booking at this resort in the future. The serene space also allowed for practicing my hand stands :)
