“fantastic experience for our whole family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Adara is perfectly located in the Village, easy 2 min walk to gondola with shopping, restaurants, etc just out the door. Room was great - had everything we needed in the kitchenette and more. Very clean. Jacuzzi was a big hit with all of us!

Service was wonderful - very friendly and helpful. Many nice little touches as well, like the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies put out each afternoon in the lobby. Terrific coffee and hot chocolate. Personal touch of the General Manager - friendly and caring, seems to greet all guests upon arrival, with his beautiful, very well-behaved golden retriever at his side. (that was a big plus for the kids!)

We are definitely coming back!

We stayed here to see Whistler and this hotel is not up to par. Construction was going on in the hallway and made noise all morning. Everything was old and used. We were scared to go in the hottub for fear if what would be lurking in it.
The staff was nice but this place needs a facelift pronto!

Thank you for your review, all reviews are important to us. The construction crews have been instructed to not start until after 9 am. We apologize if this was still too early. Work is done every year during the slow season. We did not receive any guest complaints due to construction noise thus I surprised by your review. Our hot tub is daily tested as per health guidelines. I am not sure what you imagined could be lurking there but I can assure you that our hot tub is 100% safe.

The hotel was very charming and was situated in a fabulous location right in the village. The rooms were a tad dated, but we were in our room for only a short time, so it didn't matter. Hannah at the front desk was so welcoming and helpful. She baked the guests delicious cookies and granola bars after skiing and in the morning. Such a nice touch! We would definitely stay again.

My wife and I just returned from another enjoyable stay at the Adara Hotel. Whistler is a great place to visit and the Adara made it better. The staff is still very friendly and the accommodations are very nice. The room was clean and the bathroom was spotless. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bedding smelled fresh. If you don't want to make coffee in the room, there is fresh coffee in the lobby as well as some fresh cookies and apples. The last time we stayed there, on checkout they said that if we contact them directly, we would get a discount. We called them and they gave us a discount. One thing that I noticed from many other reviews were the comments about the $20 valet service. I brought this up on checking in and the gentleman was quite up front saying that it was expensive to park in Whistler. He then cited a few other properties and their parking fees. On this, when the staff member delivered our vehicle, there were two bottles of water in the beverage holder - a nice gesture. Whistler is a relatively expensive place to stay, but this hotel made it pretty reasonable.

I booked this hotel for one night using a booking site. I knew nothing of it beforehand, so had to go on reviews. From beginning to end, a pleasant experience! On arrival, fresh coffee and cookies were in reception. Nice touch.

The room was a twin double. Very impressed. The beds were large and comfortable. Pillows were great. TV, play station, fireplace, large fridge, amenities... I was with a friend who is a manager at Whistler Blackcomb and she was super impressed, too.

On the side boards, there were earplugs. The hotel is above Wild Bills bar, but our room was on the other side (facing courtyard/entrance). I didn't notice too much noise. But regardless, it's Whistler! There is a nightlife... Deal with it. Use the earplugs :)

We used the spa, too. Was great. Clean, lots of towels.

And to top things off, a late checkout and as you exit, there were freshly baked granola bars... Omg yum! We might have taken two each... They were that good. Staff were friendly and helpful. A highly recommended from me.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the entry side of the hotel, away from the nightclub. Go for the top floor, too. W...

We have stayed at many different hotels in Whistler over the years and the Adara is by far our favourite! The staff are incredibly friendly and always go the extra mile to make your stay memorable. We booked this hotel every weekend during the ski season, so it became our home away from home. The location is perfect-1 minute walk to the gondola! Our boys loved the fact that they have Playstation 3 in every room and a great selection of games for them to play. The furniture is modern and funky and the hotel is spotless. Our room had a wonderful view of the mountains and a nice kitchenette which worked perfectly for our family. The hot tub on the roof was fantastic and the hotel provides cozy white robes for you to hang out in. It was so nice to come down to the lobby in the morning to the smell of fresh coffee and delicious fruit bars. My kids loved the warm chocolate chip cookies which awaited them every time we checked in! I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking to have a relaxing enjoyable break in Whistler.

This is one of the most quant little hotel. Warm breakfast bars downstairs with coffee in the morning and then after a long day out on the slopes we came back to warm chocolate chip cookies! The design of the hotel was so modern and fun. We never wanted to leave our room. The bed was so comfortable and it was so quiet that we slept so well. The staff were so nice and seemed interested in making our stay enjoyable. i will definately go back and stay at the Adara Hotel.
