Scout loves

  • The funky, modern design scheme.
  • The small, boutique size of the hotel.
  • The central location – providing a convenient base for skiing and nightlife.
  • Every morning the hotel supplies muesli bars and in the afternoon it's cookies.
  • All the rooms have simple kitchenette facilities (including a microwave and refrigerator, some have crockery and cutlery).
  • All rooms also come with French press coffee pots filled with the hotel’s own blend of freshly-ground coffee. 

Scout tips

  • Adara is not for light sleepers – some rooms are right above a nightclub.
  • Facilities are basic. There’s one hot tub, and the pool is only open in summer.
  • Parking is charged at $20 per night.

SCOUT REVIEW

Perhaps more than any other ski resort, Whistler embraces the word ‘play’. Be it summer or winter, day or night, this place is all about enjoying yourself and living life to the full. If this sounds like you, then The Adara Hotel is the perfect choice.

Catering specifically to a younger crowd (and the young-at-heart), this hotel has been decorated in a fun, boutique style. It makes quite a change to the ‘alpine lodge’ look it used to sport several years ago, before it was renovated. These days, instead of leather armchairs you’ll see bright red modular couches, and instead of stuffed deer heads on the walls you’ll see stylized red laminate deer sculptures – putting a quirky twist on the old cliché.

As far as location goes, The Adara is right in the heart of Whistler Village – super close to the slopes and within walking distance of all the best restaurants and bars. But be warned: the location also makes it noisy. The first sign that you’re in for a potentially rough night are the earplugs and the white noise machines beside the bed. The second is the unmistakable thump of a nightclub downstairs. If you’re a light sleeper you should definitely request a quieter room when making your booking. And if you think the noise might be a serious problem, you should probably stay somewhere else.  

Despite the lure of sumptuous designer furniture, this hotel is not the ideal destination for a peaceful romantic escape. Instead, it would be better suited to groups of friends who are more likely to want to spend time in the nightclub downstairs than in the bedrooms above.

Scout loves the loft rooms, and with the sleeper sofas they will comfortably sleep four people (although they are true lofts, which means that the upstairs rooms are small and can only be accessed from below).

All up, if you’re in Whistler to ski all day and party all night, The Adara Hotel is for you. But if it’s a good night’s sleep you need, we suggest looking further afield. 

Who should stay here

The Adara would suit young groups of friends who are in Whistler to ski hard and party harder.
