Also known as the Marriott in the past the Blackcomb Suites is a great location for a ski in ski out trip to Whistler. It's located just above Blackcomb 'village' and on a piste that is great for beginners, so it's a ski in/out location that works for all ability levels - which not many do. There's a chair just a few hundred metres from the entrance onto the piste that doesn't require a lift pass (or didn't when we were there), so a real beginner can go up and down the small piste all day long without having to buy a lift pass (or on an 'off day' when you don't want to use your pass - the passes are all 6 of 7, or 9 of 10 etc).
The rooms are in fact small apartments, with a gas fire, sofa seating area, dining area, and small kitchen. Think small studio apartment and you are about right. The equipment and general feel of the rooms is pretty good, although they don't feel luxurious like the apartments in the Sundial Boutique.
The large dining rooms are pretty standard hotel fare, with a pretty decent buffet breakfast, but a bit of a 'free for all' feeling to the start of the day. Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed it and this is what skiing tends to feel like wherevere you go, but quiet, calm, and relaxing breakfast this is not - more like lots of people trying to eat as quickly as they can so they can ski out of the door onto the best skiing mountain around.
The outside hot tubs are great, and you can sit in the hot tub exchanging friendly snowballs with people going up the small chair lift that almost passes overhead - great fun.
There are few restaurants in Blackcomb itself, so you either have to get the free and regular shuttle bus to Whistler Village, or walk the 10-15 minute walk, which is a nice walk but not one you want to do every day.
Good hotel, great hotel for skiers, and one we'd happily go back to.
