Reviewed 19 February 2007

Stayed at Legends for 10 days from the 7th February. The location can't be beaten, it's a stone's throw from the Ski Lockers to the base of the Creekside Gondola, and even closer to Dusty's if that's your thing. 7 of us (all lads, one on the pull out sofa) stayed in a three bedroom condo (Rm 401) which was a corner room overlooking the Gondola and Dusty's. There are many mentions in previous reviews of the noise from Dusty's but we didn't experience any problem at all, perhaps this was due to it being winter and having all the window's closed, but you couldn't get a room closer than ours to Dusty's and the only time we heard any noise was on a friday when they had a band on but it wasn't loud enough to keep you awake. We also never heard any noise from the hallways or ajoining rooms. The rooms were all very well furnished and the washing and drying facilites in the condo proved very useful. The swimming pool and 2 hot tubs are great for jumping in after a day on the slopes and they provide enough towels for that purpose. I wouldn't worry about not being in the Village, it's only $1.50 on the bus or a 3 min taxi ride for $10, both from the front door of the hotel, anyway there's Japanese, Chinese, a diner, pizza, ribs and burgers etc at Dusty's and Mexican nearby in Creekside and the best run on Whistler Mountain (Franz's) straight to your doorstep, oh and no line ups for the Gondola, unlike in the village. I can only guess that the poor ratings are down to the potential noise from Dusty's and having to pay for baby cots, neither affected us, we were impressed with the whole facility and would highly recommend it.

Having arrived in Whistler on a snowy Christmas Eve, we were warmly welcomed by the reception staff and promptly checked in. We rented two two-bedroom apartments, and found them quite comfortable for four adults each.

Although our room did not have the best of views (it was overlooking the edge of the forest and a building site), our friends had a lovely view of the ski slope and the gondola.

The location of this hotel is great. The bus stop to the main village (which is a 3 or 4 km trip) is right outside the front door, and the gondola is right outside the back door.

The one thing we found rather disappointing is the cleaning staff. They don't really put much of an effort into cleaning your rooms, other than arranging your bath towels and making the bed. Another downside is that the rooms seem a little damp.

As we arrived on Christmas Eve and stayed into the New Year, it would have been quite nice to see some Christmas decorations in the apartments.

In general, we had a pleasant experience... although it would have been even better had there been a restaurant and a bar area in the foyer of the hotel.

We stayed at Legends in early December of 2006 for 3 nights - a couple of things went horribly wrong. First, on the website they say they have cribs (we have a 2 year old) - they don't - what they do is give you the info for a place that will rent you a crib for $20/night....not the end of the world but hey $20 is $20. In fairness, the did ultimiately refund us the rental cost.

The WORST part was the noise - when we booked they knew we had a young child, yet they put us right above Dusty's. There is no soundproofing in this building!! We heard everything going on in that bar until they shut down at 2:00 am. 3 nights in a row this happened and they made no attempt to move us. Also, within the rooms themselves, sound proofing does not exist. Even at low volume, you can hear the TV on in the next room - once the little one was asleep, we had to be ridiculously quiet in order to keep him sleeping.

I have written back to them 4 times and am assured that the appropriate managers have been informed.....yeah, sure.

Anyway, bottom line - if you have a family or if you value sleep - do NOT stay at Legends at Whistler!

  • Liked — The location was good
  • Disliked — No room sound proofing

When our two daughters decided to go to Disneyland for Spring Break, my wife and I decided to make our first trip to Whistler. Legends was priced right and easy to arrange over the web. The hotel itself was great. We did not want to stay in the Village, as we prefer the relative quiet of a location such as Creekside.

Besides, in Creekside there is a VERY complete grocery store, liquor store, ski rental pick-up, etc. right across the pedestrian overpass from Legends (two minutes, really). Legends itself is about as close to the Creekside Gondola as you can get, and their ski equipment storage is simple and efficient. The Village is 5-8 minutes away by private car (not counting the time it will take you to find a parking place, which can be quite a while--and a walk).

The BIG (I said BIG!) problem with Legends is Dusty's, the tavern/bar/restaurant directly in the crook of Legends' arm. Do not believe anything the Legends staff tells you about the noise from Dusty's. We heard it all, before, during, and after: The excuses from the staff--and the extremely loud music that started up at about 10:30 on Friday night. It was simply impossible to sleep. The bass on the place's amplifiers literally vibrated our room, keeping us up 'til the wee, small hours of the morning.

If Legends can guarantee you a room on the "other" side of the hotel from Dusty's, then by all means, snap it up. But otherwise, if you are over forty and don't feel like actually immersing yourself in the clamor at Dusty's, look for an alternative. (That's what we are doing right now....)

This place is a far sight better and a nice change from the Delta Whilster Village Suites.

Legends has a huge kitchen that you could actually use, they don't ding you for small individual boxes of Tide for the washer and dryer and instead provide you with a container of detergent, the bathroom and kitchen have heated floors, the beds were excellent, if it says it's a two bedroom, or a one bedroom with den, they are (unlike others hotels that create these weird connected adjoining room structures and call them two bedrooms), the location is fab, parking is underground and secured, and the front desk is very helpful.

I will say that we were there during a mountain bike festival and our online booking got screwed up and they gave away our two bedroom and instead we had to have a one bedroom with den. However, they were very apologetic, gave us the one bedroom with den at a deep discount, offered to move us (literally) the next day to a two bedroom, and gave us a bottle of wine for our trouble.

Amenities included lovely large balconies, large pool area with multiple hot tubs, an outdoor barbecue area that was well-used, etc. Soundproofing seemed to be quite good because I don't remember hearing anyone in the halls or in the other rooms.

WE will definitely stay here again.
