Over the years, Whistler has grown to include some top-notch hotels. Some are located at the base of Whistler Mountain, while others are located in the quiet, yet convenient, area of Creekside Village. Here is Forbes Travel Guide’s take on the five best places to stay in Whistler:
1. Four Seasons Resort Whistler. This Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star resort sits at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, just a short walk away from the chairlifts. A cozy ski lodge with all the trappings of a luxury hotel, Four Seasons Resort Whistler has an equally as impressive spa.
2. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Fittingly, this hotel looks like a chateau sitting at the base of Blackcomb, with easy access to the mountain. The ski-in/ski-out property is fabulous no matter what time of year you visit. There’s even an onsite golf course to entertain you come summer.
3. Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre. This location is one of two Pan Pacific resorts in Whistler, and these private residence-like lodgings are convenient to everything. You’ll have your own full kitchen in your room and when you wake up, you’ll have the backdrop of the mountains and the bustling village.
4. Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside. The sister resort to the one in Whistler Village, this alpine-chic hotel has one of the best ski-in/ski-out locations. Adding to the luxurious accommodations is the unrivaled view of the enormous mountain resort.
5. Nita Lake Lodge. Though it’s not situated at the base of either of the mountains, Nita Lake Lodge lies on the shores of the tranquil Nita Lake. It’s just a short ride away from Creekside Village, which used to be the sole access point to the mountain resort. The hotel even has lockers at the base of Whistler Mountain where you can store your gear.
