I stayed at the Hilton Whistler Resort and Spa for 10 days while attending a conference in Whistler. I have stayed at other Hilton Resorts around the world and this one is mediocre in comparison. Being a Hilton HHonors Silver member, I was treated to special amenities and fruit baskets at other Hilton resorts but here I was rushed through check-in and received no benefits for my frequenct guest status. As is disturbingly usual around the worlod these days, Internet is NOT included in the room rate and is overpriced.
I wouldn't even consider this to be a "resort". Due to a private party one of the nights, Hilton guests were given access to the pool and whirlpool facilities at the Westin next door. WOW what a difference. The Westin is MUCH, MUCH nicer. For the price of the Hilton, I expected more. The hotel seems a bit dated (looks like circa late 80's/early 90's), the air conditioner didn't work in my room (maintenance was efficient in correcting the problem though), housekeeping was inconsistent (some days I would have more towels or shampoo, etc. than others), staff was rude in shuffling guests out during pool closing time, and the hotel in general was loud. A business meeting in the lobby was interrupted by hotel construction, I was awoken more than once by other loud guests in the hall way and the cleaning staff was carrying on loud conversations in the hall way each day I was there. The location and front staff service was excellent though.
All in all, not a "bad" hotel, but I'm staying elsewhere next time I'm in Whistler.
