Dear Resortquest
Please do not advertise room 314 as a condo with all of the amenities of a condo. A microwave next to the TV and a coffee maker on the night stand does not make a condo. This unit was more of a hotel room, w/out wifi...While we enjoyed our stay and the personnel at the lodge were gracious and friendly, the room was completely misrepresented in your advertising...

We travelled in March 2013 and stayed in one-bedroom unit 214. It's not a modern, trendy apartment but It was perfect for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids and was very comfortable, warm and we couldn't fault it.

We arrived extremely early into Vancouver airport so instead of waiting for the shuttle and bus service to begin at 830am, we booked a cab with Whistler taxi and the cost was only a bit more than 4 individual transfers. As you can only check in at 4pm we made the decision to book the apartment the night before our actual arrival but it was worth it as we could enter the building with our code and get straight into bed after our overnight flight. We were then up and refreshed later that morning, walked down to get our ski hire then got on the slopes.

The main bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and a single with a trundle that pulls out, so if you are happy to share a room with the kids you can all fit in there, however if you prefer to have separate sleeping quarters then there's a double sofa-bed in the lounge.

The kitchen is well-equipped (just needs some champagne flutes) and although most owners lock away condiments these owners made them available which was great and it also meant that we could leave behind our excess for future guests. I walked to the IGA and liquor store in the North Village and took a cab back with groceries. There are usually cabs waiting outside the IGA and it costs around $7 plus tip to get back to Greystone.

The bathroom is accessible from both the living area and the main bedroom and there were plenty of towels available and a "real" hairdryer. They provided adult bathrobes (for Acer guests) which were good when using the hot tubs and pool.

The Acer reception staff are friendly and pre-arranged lift passes, ski school and hire. The ski passes were delivered to the apartment before our arrival which was convenient.

The indoor hot tub is big and the outdoor one is small but that didn't matter too much as most of the younger guests used the great outdoor pool instead. Whatever you do remember your access code or change it to a number you can recall as you don't want to be stuck outside the building wet and in your swim wear!

From the ski locker it is around 150 steps to the ski run but if there's snow on the path you can pole your way there and ski most if not all of the way back. Some people say this isn't exactly a ski in ski out location but I would say it's close. Most days that we were on Blackcomb we skied back to the apartment for lunch.

The ski run down to the lifts (magic and wizard chairs) is very easy but not a absolute beginner hill. It was so easy to ski with the kids down to ski school and at the end of the day we would pick them up, take the magic chair up and ski back down to Greystone rather than walk up the hill. BTW, the ski school was excellent and our kids joined in the 5 day program. My kids were sad to say goodbye to their excellent instructors (Dave and a Spanish man).

You can easily walk into the upper village (just down the hill) or the main village (under a tunnel, over a bridge and 1 road). The upper village is closest and has some nice places to eat and drink. CiaoThyme had good breakfast, Merlins good coffee and Milestones good lunch and dinner.

If you are keen on partying then this definitely isn't the place for you! It has a very strict quiet times which made it ideal for families. Last year we stayed in the main village which was fantastic, buzzing but very noisy at night. In the main village you can go ice-skating - it's free and you just hire skates for $5. The village has a family night on Wednesdays during the winter.

Advice:Remember all the Greystone apartments are different so make sure you check the details and photos before boooking. And memorize or change your access code and don't stay here if you want to party. Expect to have a quiet, relaxing, comfortable vacation at Greystone.

Room Tip: Remember all apartments are different so double check the details and photos before booking. This apartment had a balcony and one bedroom, one bathroom and a kitchen (unit 214).

Like most of the lodges in Whistler, quality depends on the unit and the company that is manages the unit. # 315 is managed by ResortQuest. It is 100% functional, did not impact my experience in Whistler... But needs urgent refurbishment. I have sent an email to ResortQuest with all the details, but got no answer so far.

Anyway, Greystone location is really great, a few meters from the tracks close to Blackcomb's base. Free parking. Clean and safe. ResortQuest desk is @ the Aspens, across the street. Everything was working well, no problem at all.

a group of us stayed at greystone lodge in march of this year and i highly recommend this place. the price was right, the accommodation was fine, the outdoor jacuzzi and heated pool were fantastic, the keyless entry was effortless, and it truly is ski-in/ski-out!! i've stayed at other places that claim to be ski-in/ski-out and then required some walking. this one does for sure. (it's not at whistler, it's at blackcomb, but we found blackcomb to be less busy and in fact were able to ski both.) lastly, we all appreciated the plush cotton robes Acer rentals provided, as we were able to wear them going back and forth from the jacuzzi/pool.
i will rent there again!

Thank you for taking the time to review the Greystone Lodge. The ski-in ski-out nature of Greystone is a great advantage to lugging skis to the lifts. The robes were and idea to make trip to and from the outdoor heated pool and hot tubs a little more comfotable. We are happy you enjoyed them! We also note that the lift lines are generally less busy on Blackcomb mountain. This is because the ski runs lead to many different lifts as a part of the mountains' original design. Next year there will be a new lift in the Crystal region of Blackcomb with more capacity to look forward to as well. All the more reason to stay at Greystone! See you next time - All the best -Clint Goyette

Greystone may not be the newest or prettiest condo building but our stay there was very good. Keep in mind, each unit is individually owned and furnished so try to find a picture of your room before you rent it. We stayed in unit 315. The bathroom and kitchen were new with granite and tile, stainless steel full sized fridge and very clean shower stall. The queen size bed is in a loft, which was fine because of the high vaulted ceilings but not good for privacy if you are travelling with another couple. The furniture was outdated, but fully functional. The gas fireplace worked well, and the tv is modern. There is free WiFi in the room too. The condo is only a block to a bus stop, which is very convienent, and there are lockers to leave your skiis in after skiing into the lodge from Blackcomb mountain. The lobby is nothing fancy and we did not need to contact management during our stay. Also, don't get too excited about the hot tub. Nothing to write home about. Also, we heard alot of noise from other guests, particulary the ones right next door to us - not because the guests were particularly loud; but because the walls are particularly thin. There was a shared balcony with this room. There was no problem checking in when we arrived very, very late at night. Check in is at the Aspens Lodge, which is right next store. The staff there was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The high ceiling lofts are nice.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Greystone Lodge. As you have mentioned in your review each unit in Greystone Lodge is privately owned. Therefore, it is a great idea to get a photo of the unit you are renting. In addition, check-in procedures do vary from Owner to Owner and property manager to property manager. Although your check-in was at the Aspens, most check-ins are directly at Greystone Lodge. It would be wise to also find out where your check-in location is prior to booking. Please note that shared balconies are only found with units sold as lock-offs. We are happy that you enjoyed the two hot tubs and pool which are maintained twice a day and the free WiFi located throughout the building. We look forward to your return visit.
All the best,
Clint Goyette
