We found the Sundial to be an ok place to stay but we didn't get any good nights' sleep there. We got a fairly good deal from www.whistlerblackcom.com (CAD $423 for 2 nights, including taxes) Here are some factors for you to consider:-
What we liked: The location is great - it's right at the Whistler Village and base of the Whistler gondolas and near to the Guest RElations office for getting tickets, etc. Food and shops are all nearby. There is a kitchenette with cutlery and a big fridge, and a stove so it's good for people who wanna cook or have families. There are washing machines/dryers at the basement that you can use (for about $1 each) to wash your clothes so that helps save some money from expensive hotel laundry services. There was also a nice little touch like complimentary welcome chocolates.
What we didn't like: the ventilation system was quite poor and the airconditioning was soooo loud that we had to turn it off at night, which meant the room was so stuffy. Also, the safe was not working and we had to leave our valuables with the front desk... their safe is the same as the one in the hotel room which means anyone who knows the combination could just take your stuff. Not very safe. We expected lockers with 2 sets of keys where you hold one set so that nobody else can open the safe. Also, for a hotel rated tops by visitors, we thought the staff would be more smiley. They were helpful when you asked them but more smiles would be great. Also, we were surprised there wasn't a clothes line (for times when you just wanna wash one or two items).
We wouldn't stay here again simply because we couldn't sleep from the loud airconditioning/heating system.
