“Lots of things going for it”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 via mobile

It's right in the middle of whistler village and only a few minutes walk to bars, restaurants, supermarkets etc. The rooms are smallish however clean and well maintained. The front desk staff are super helpful and have a great knowledge of whistler. If its going to be your first time to whistler it's a great place to base yourself for a few nights. Also a locals favourite hang out is the Crystal lounge on the ground floor just a short walk from the lobby.

Stayed May 2013

Mark, thank you very much for taking the time to review the Crystal Lodge following your recent trip to Whistler. I am pleased to read that our front desk team's knowledge of the area added to your overall experience. There is so much to do in the resort that often a quick discussion with the front desk or equally experienced bell/ concierge team will streamline the activities to your individual desires. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future.

Kind regards,
Ian Lowe

The hotel was close to everything staff at the front desk friendly and prompt with check in. So many venues for dining and spa services in the hotel
The heated outdoor pool and hot tub were a bonus

Would certainly stay there ag

My girlfriend and I decided to go away for the weekend, we've stayed in Whistler on numerous occasions and know the village very well at this stage. This Hotel is in a great location, as good as good as it gets. Even though it's in the very heart of the village, noise was not a problem, and I'm actually a light sleeper. Room was clean & comfortable. we paid the extra couple of bucks for a deluxe, which was well worth it. Staff were friendly also. The only thing i could say against it, is the parking, $22/night, pretty steep, but that's Whistler for you!!

Room Tip: Upgrade to deluxe, it's worth it!

Top quality all round with friendly, helpful, professional staff. The double room was perfect for 2 couples on a quick trip to check out the Whistler scene. It's right in the village centre, with easy access to everything. The rooms were spotless and looked newly renovated - comfortable beds, good linen, attention to detail you would expect from a more expensive hotel. This is a well-run property in a great location - we'll be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back (off the main drag) if you don't want street noise from revellers lat...

Donna, thank you for taking the time to review the crystal lodge. I am pleased to hear that our team of service professionals stood out as a highlight of your trip. The 2 queen deluxe room type is one of our most popular rooms at the hotel and pleased that it worked well for the four of you. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back again in the near future for possibly a longer whistler retreat.

After being treathed very rude at the hotel we made reservations with (see review "The Listel"), we walked over to this hotel to see if they had rooms available. The staff here is very friendly and gladly tells you about things to do in the area. We were offered a choice of rooms and got complementary parking. The rooms are a little dated, but offers everything you need. Our room even had a large balcony with sunbeds. You also get a Cristal discount card, which gets you discounts at a selection of local shops and Rico's Grill (which is a great place to eat).

Thank you for your recent review of the crystal lodge. I am sorry that you had a difficult experience at your first whistler hotel but would like you to know that this is definitely the exception rather than the rule throughout the resort. We are pleased however that our team met or exceeded your expectations and look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back on your next trip to whistler.

We chose this hotel because it was located in the centre of the town. This is good for being able to go into town for shopping etc. but the drawback is that if you have a room overlooking the village centre it can be very noisy at night with late night revellers around. We didn't sleep the first night due to excessive noise. We complained next morning and asked to be moved. Joanna the Duty Manager on reception and I think the guy's name was Joshua as well who sorted it out and we were given a room on the other side of the hotel overlooking the road (the front of the hotel) we also had a balcony which is what we requested when we booked. This room was lovely and very quiet. Many thanks to Joanna and Joshua for sorting it out for us. The food there was expensive so we didn't dine there, instead we had breakfast at Elements - excellent and dinner at the Hilton next door which was much cheaper and very good. Parking was expensive as well $23 a day. We didn't know if there was a cheaper option so paid. We expected free parking if we were staying at the hotel as is the way in the UK. Rooms were clean but on the small side.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the front not overlooking the village pedestian centre

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide the hotel with your detailed review of your recent experience at the Crystal Lodge. Although we strive for 5 start reviews, I am pleased to read that our team were successful in turning around your stay after the first night. As for your comment about parking, Whistler now offers complimentary parking however it is outdoors and located several minutes walk from the hotel otherwise each hotel offers their own underground parking ranging from $20-$40/ night.
