I stayed at the Aava Whister with friends and family for 2 weeks in January 2010.
Firstly, there is nowhere better than Whistler for Snowsports and Apres Ski.
The Aava has a good location as it is very close to the Gondola and is situated behind the Hilton/ Crystal Lodge & Westin Resort.
No Room Service, Mini Bar, In Room Entertainment etc.
Rooms are small, but beds are very comfortable!
There is a 'White Spot' Restuarant adjacent to the hotel which is great.
Perfect if you are looking for a no frills break (maybe not so relaxing however!)
Hot Tub & Sauna great but very busy in evenings.
BEWARE: the hotel is full of teenages and college students on the weekends and both weekends of our stay we had to make numerous complaints about the noise, which was ridiulous!!
Also, the 3rd weekend in January is named College Invasion...IT REALLY IS AN INVASION AND THE WHOLE VILLAGE IS FILLED WITH STUDENTS AND PRICES USUALLY INCREASE.
Having stayed in the Westin twice previously, although there is a large increase in price...the ammenities and service are worth it. The rooms have kitchen and laundry facilities which decreases your costs, the hotel collects your ski's at the bottom of the slopes and stores them - perfect for apres ski! And there is a variety of restuarants, shops and an incredible spa to choose from within the hotel!More
