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.

My wife and our year and a half year old recently stayed at the Westin and could not have been more happy with our stay, so much so that we booked an additional night!

My wife and our year and a half year old recently stayed at the Westin and could not have been more happy with our stay, so much so that we booked an additional night! The staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to ensure that we had everything that was needed. This hotel and their staff go far beyond typical COVID-19 protocols. As a side note, we left a personal item behind and the Westin went out of their way to make sure that the item was returned back to us. We can't thank Andrew M and his team for going above and beyond for us from the moment we checked in! Thanks again, we are already looking forward to our next stay! Read less

Loved the two bedroom suite- definitely a really nice location, and rooms are well kept. Stayed for a night- close to the village, and hotel staff was helpful and friendly. Coffee shops, food options and they were following all covid protocols Will be going back for sure.

Westin beds are heavenly. I just think it would have been nice to be warned that you may not even get to use the pool at all due to the covid restrictions. The sauna and steam room is also closed. You have to book only one time slot per day of one hour, and it can be fully booked. First world problems but you are paying first world prices you are… Read more
Westin beds are heavenly. I just think it would have been nice to be warned that you may not even get to use the pool at all due to the covid restrictions. The sauna and steam room is also closed. You have to book only one time slot per day of one hour, and it can be fully booked. First world problems but you are paying first world prices you are not getting a 4star. Our cost 260$/night with parking. Save your self money, choose a hotel with no facilities and spend the rest of the money that you would have spent at the Westin, at the Scandinavia spa, where you can enjoy it allll day! I even called to ask if the pool was open, before making the choice to book. Someone could have said something... Read less

My wife and I booked a 3 night getaway at The Westin, October 19. We have not visited Whistler in over 15 years. The Westin had some great rates, which included parking. I called a couple of nights ahead of our stay, to talk about my requests. As usual, the Customer Service was excellent, I spoke with Andrew and Grant. I met and spoke with Grant a few time during my stay. He is one of the managers with excellent Customer Service skills. Very helpful and approachable. Upon arrival, I was checked in by Andrew, different one than telephone Andrew. His Customer Service was excellent, as well, and aside from all the Covid nonsense, everything was very smooth. We had a great one bedroom suite, overlooking the village and mountains, with a nice large balcony. I also, spoke with Ann, a few days ahead of booking. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. She pointed out the BC Resident rate, to me, which included the parking. We loved the location of this resort. Step out and you are in the village, very convenient for strolling around. Our first full day we followed the path to Rainbow Park on Alta Lake. A great walk about 3 hours return. We saw a couple of bears grazing on the golf course. Such beautiful animals, hard to believe that people senselessly slaughter them by hunting. We had breakfast each morning which in the bar, the restaurant was closed for some renovations. The breakfast selections were delicious. We especially, enjoyed the poached eggs on toast with avocado and a selection of fresh fruit. A shout out to Moya and Andrew (yes a 3rd one, but he is dubbed Andrew #1, at Concierge desk) . These individuals were superb, as well, with Customer Service. This is one thing I can always count on at a Marriott Bonvoy property, is the consistent Excellent Customer Service from all employees. I will definitely, come back to Whistler, sooner, this time, and stay at the Westin. Read less

We checked in early to our one bedroom suite with a fabulous view of Whistler Village and the surrounding snow capped mountains. What a comfortable room with bedroom, living area, kitchenette and bathroom. Customer service was great during the pandemic. Very careful.
