“Good for price, extra fees apply”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2011

I went with a trip with the family. We had six people and stayed comfortably in the two bedroom suite. There is a sofa bed in the living room. One bedroom had two twin beds, and the other had a queen, and an ensuite bathroom. The beds were fairly high up off the floor which I didn't like that much. I found my bed (the twin) relatively comfortable.

The two bathrooms were average looking although a bit dated in looks. The kitchen and the open layout with tall ceilings were the highlight. Kitchen had granite counter tops, stone tile floors and oak cabinets. It was great to have a kitchen with all the appliances (microwave, oven, dishwasher, standard fridge) to prepare meals for a large group, instead of eating out each meal.

We stayed in the 500 level premier suite which is on the top floor. Note that the entrance to your suite is located on the fourth floor, and you are required to walk up a staircase with about twenty stairs to your suite from the door entrance. The premier suite has two balconies. One had an unspectacular view of the trees, but the other gave us a view of the mountains and the golf driving range. The balcony had chairs and a small table. It is a great place to BBQ, which we did for one meal.

We found everything about our stay enjoyable except the extra charges. First there was the $17 charge PER vehicle. Since we drove in two cars this was $34 plus tax for one night! Secondly they charge you for internet use at a rate of $4.95 per 24 hour period. Talk about nickel and diming the customers!

Room Tip: Get the premier suite as it probably has the best ambiance for larger groups and families.

We booked a block of 10 rooms for our family reunion and it was great. We were able to make all of our meals and use their conference room to meet spend time together. It was different from the other nearby luxurious Four Seasons, or Fairmont hotels but it was able to provide us with exactly what we needed: a lot of rooms (that each slept a lot of people) that had kitchens.

We had to pay for internet, which was a bummer. Proximity to the village was a definite plus. We were able to walk there everyday (short 5 minute walk).

Overall, really great little lodge. Don't expect super fancy, sophisticated decor and you'll be satisfied.

I love the room that Tantalus offers in their suites. They provide everything you need to cook in the suite. There is lots of room for a family to function as a family...allowing children to get to bed and adults room to socialize afterwards without having to worry about disrupting sleeping children.

Spent one week here while kids did snowboard camp. Rooms were comfortable and well supplied. Cleaning service was bit intermittent but satisfactory. Front desk very helpful. Location fantastic as a 5 min walk to heart of whistler village and lifts.

I found the location to be great since it's less than 5 minutes away from whistler village. Our suite was good the rooms were clean and comfortable. The only thing I would complain about would be the bathrooms there was a weird smell (even tried spraying perfume and that didn't work) that came from it and the towels had stains on them. The bathrooms need to be renovated

great location, great suites

but there is some type of allergen (dust, etc..) that had everyone in the group sneezing, and coughing. Instant relief as soon as we left.

this hotel has very large rooms. they are not luxurious but certainly are functional.
rooms were quiet.
the hotel is probably about 400 meters from gondola. it is right beside the Westin. There is a hill to walk over. a bit of a nuisance if sidewalks are slippery and you are wearing ski boots. there is a shuttle which basically comes every 5-10 minutes.
This isn't a luxury property but it is quite functional. there are lots of properties farther from the slopes than this one.
