Our family has been coming to Whistler someime around Xmas for the past 7 years. Every year we have stayed at a different place. Overall this was about the best place we have stayed in. The value was excellent - this was the best priced accomodation of this type in the Village this year. It was so nice being across from the food store, a short walk to the lifts and close to restaurants. My daughter was able to go out to the bar with friends and walk back easily across the street. We found the service staff friendly and efficient most of the time. At times the staff seemed a bit out to lunch. For example, when checking in I was told there was no WIFI in the building and that I should go to Starbucks or use the pay computer in the lobby. But then my friends told me they had been advised that there was free internet in the lobby which turned out to be true. And then when I tried to connect in my room, I realized there was pay access to internet.
But I agree that this place isn't for everyone. Being so close to the bars means that some of the rooms are very noisy. In times past this might have bothered me but no more. I would probably however request a room on the quiet side next time. The supposed kitchen was more like a breakfast bar with a small fridge but surprisingly a large dishwasher. Our unit was not too well stocked - no knife and cutting board to start. No dining room table. But it worked well for our purposes. My husband and I were a little surprised to find only four twin beds in the unit ie no double bed. But everything worked and being in this location was enjoyed by all of us.
