Scout loves

  • The cool urban vibe in the lobby area.
  • The friendly and down-to-earth service.
  • The peace and quiet that comes from the hotel’s location – which is slightly removed, but still not too far from everything you need.
  • You can show off your skills to the world be borrowing a complimentary GoPro camera for a couple of hours.

Scout tips

  • The deluxe rooms are on the small side.
  • For only a little bit extra you can upgrade to a superior room on a higher floor – offering vaulted ceilings, more space and better views.
  • The main person who makes the booking must be over 25.
  • The hotel provides an on-call shuttle service if you need it.
  • Underground self-parking is charged at $19 per night.

SCOUT REVIEW

Although the Aava Hotel is slightly removed from all the action in Whistler, this is actually one of its main strengths – ensuring you’re away from all the noise and thus able to get a good night’s rest. For a ski resort renowned for being a party town, this is a priceless asset! Plus, it’s really not all that far away – only a short walk from everything the village has to offer. 

Despite its quieter location, the Aava still has a young, happening vibe. It was completely renovated in 2007 – up until that point it had been a Coast Hotels property. The whole process took two years, so now the hotel looks nothing like its former self – with a fresh lobby area, several lounge areas, and a beautiful wooden communal table offering the chance to meet other guests while relaxing by the fire.

The Aava also has many of the luxuries of the higher-end hotels, but at mid-range rates. There’s a small (but adequate) gym, hot tub and heated pool, sauna and ski concierge service – which all help to make your stay easier and more comfortable.

The rooms however are more reflective of the mid-range price bracket. They’re small and fairly basic with no kitchen facilities (except for the two bedroom suite), and offer just enough storage room for all your stuff. Scout recommends upgrading to the Superior rooms which have lovely vaulted ceilings – creating more space and offering better views of the surrounding mountains. They also have a few nice touches such as Keurig coffee machines, bathrobes and Aveda products. 

Who should stay here

This hotel would suit a younger crowd who don’t want to be in a mountain lodge style hotel and who want a convenient yet peaceful location.
