Scout loves

  • No charge for pets.
  • Each room includes a small but fully equipped kitchen (including an oven and dishwasher).
  • The hotel is in a great location: close to Whistler and Blackcomb chairlifts.
  • The gym has lots of windows, and a view.

Scout tips

  • Wi-Fi is free in public areas but costs $10 per day to access from your room.
  • Self Parking is $28 and valet parking is $32.
  • It costs more for a ‘mountain view’ (which means you’ll see some of the ski slopes). However the higher floor regular rooms often have equally spectacular views of the valley, as well as Rainbow and Sproatt mountains.


Whistler has an abundance of corporate chain hotels – more than most ski resorts. For the right audience this is perfect, as you can be assured of a reliable standard of quality. There’s something comforting about having a good idea of what your hotel will be like without ever having been there before.

Westin Whistler fulfills all these criteria, but more than that – it’s a legitimately great accommodation option, especially for skiers. This is because it’s centrally located, the service is excellent, there are plenty of great facilities on offer, and the beds can, of course, only be described as heavenly.

Situated right on the edge of Whistler Village, the hotel is nestled into the mountain – making it a very short walk to the slopes in the morning. (It’s only about a 30 second walk from the ski concierge to the lifts). The end of the day is even easier, as they collect your skis right at the slope – leaving your hands free to grab the first available beer at one of Whistler’s many fantastic apres spots.

The rooms at the Westin were remodeled in 2009, and so are not necessarily the newest in the village, but they’re stylish in a chic city meets mountain cosy kind of way. The décor is tasteful – with shades of yellow and red, contrasted with pine finishes. Each room features a small living area with couches and a fireplace, creating a nice and cozy place for you to relax of an evening. And the kitchens provide more than the average hotel kitchenette – coming complete with an oven and dishwasher (as well as the standard fridge, stovetop and sink). The best part is you can leave all your dishes for the daily housekeeping service to deal with – so you’ll have more time for skiing! 

Who should stay here

Westin Whistler would suit those who want an extremely convenient location to the slopes and Whistler Village, and who don’t mind a bit of a corporate hotel feel.
