So, we just got back from a 6 night stay at the Hilton and I am definitely coming back! We had friends staying at the Westin next door and, for the money, we had the better place. They paid $900 more than us for the same duration of stay and, yes, they had a lovelier lobby and nicer handles on their dresser, but that was about it.
We stayed in a King Suite so had our own kitchenette and real fireplace on the top floor. It was a well appointed room, daily cleaning was excellent and it was steps to the slopes. You literally have less than a 30 sec. walk to the Whistler gondola.
The front desk and bell service was excellent (not over the top annoying and not complacent).
Only issue may be the overly eager heating system in the rooms- it was tough to get the temp just right.
Loved the free and easy to access wi-fi and also the fire log daily and great robes/ plentiful towels. Room service was excellent and prompt (best potato leek soup ever!). Indoor and outdoor hot tubs were great as was the heated outdoor pool. The fitness room was modern and also well appointed (worked out twice!)
I have previously stayed at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler and, while the rooms there are 'prettier', the huge savings, proximity to hill and village and excellent service way out-do that hotel. I would strongly recommend it.
