I'm not a picky person (I frequently stay at Motel 8s and Comfort
Inns), and I would give this hotel a 1 of 10. First, I have never been
to a hotel where you are not allowed to bring your triathlon/road
bike in the room. I have scoured their website, and I have not found
anywhere they mention this very important fact! They did make an
exception only for Ironman athletes (I stayed there race weekend). I
would never, ever trust my $5,000 bike in the storage facility they
offered in the parking garage. I don't care how "secure"
they claim it is. Secondly, this hotel is vastly unimpressive!!! The
only positive thing is that is located in Whistler village. At any
other location, I would have felt taken advantage of if it was even
$70/night. The hall carpets are worn out and dirty. The elevators
are antiquate- no exterior indication of if they are going up or down-
causing confusion. The hallways were hot even when it was only 60 deg
f outside. The carpet in the room was worn out and dirty (they cleaned
it, but there is just nothing you can do when it is so worn out). The
furniture in the room was old and stained. The heating/cooling
unit has no control- only on and very cold. It never did heat up when
we selected the heat setting. Third, we didn't realize it was a
party hotel, but the screaming/laughing/cussing next door
started at about 9:00 pm (must to my dismay because I needed to get up
at 3:30 am for the race day). Also, the WiFi access was spotty, but
did generally work.
The staff was friendly. They were not helpful, but they were friendly.
The bed was comfortable!
