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.

So off we went for a couple of days as a family to Whistler and we chose the Westin. What can I say except great from start to finish! A few days before we checked in an email came updating us on any restrictions. At the end of the email was a note that the pool would be shut down for maintenance from the 19th to the 21st. Yikes! Not great words when you have 2 kids under 11. I called the hotel and spoke with the front desk and asked if there was anything fun that they would consider giving the kids. When we checked in they said that the kids had two free movies to watch! I really appreciated the gesture as they were disappointed that our mini vacation fell on the pool maintenance days! The lobby was immaculate, as was the room. The view was amazing and even though we had the restrictions we enjoyed our time. The staff was friendly and helpful every day. We appreciate everyone who made our stay a respite from the crazy that we’ve all been and are going through. We’ll see you again after Covid!!! Read less

Was a little hesitant to come with Covid going around but very happy to see everyone with masks! Awesome stay overall, to mention if you have a EV here you can totally charge it so bring your charger as well! Great stay and looking forward to more.

Used a Suite Night Award to stay in the bi-level loft suite. The finishing of this room and the 20+ feet windows were breathtaking. Service was impeccable throughout.
