Our family recently returned after spending a week at the Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre Hotel. We stayed in the Tantalus Suite on the top floor, which is an amazing 3 bedroom suite covering over 1700 square feet. It had 4 decks, 3 full-size flat panel TV's, 3 full bathrooms and a full sized kitchen with all necessary dishes, pans and silverware. It was plenty large enough for 6 adults and 4 children. The views from the top are stunning as you overlook all of the Village as well as the surrounding peaks. It is just a short 3 or 4 minute walk to the chairlift on the Whistler side with plenty of shops and restaurants all around.
The continental breakfast was good with plenty of fresh fruits, cereal and fresh pastries to choose from. Good brewed coffee was also available. The dining hall, like the rest of the hotel, was kept very clean.
The heated pool is located on the ground floor. The pool was quite small and didn't really have a kids end. The shallowest part of the pool is around 3'4". The pool was heated comfortably though, which was quite nice. There are also 2 good sized hot tubs located outside. The workout room is very basic, but has quality exercise bikes, treadmill and some weights. Since most people are there to spend time hiking, golfing, skiing, biking or some other outdoor activity, a large workout room isn't necessary.
The staff are all friendly and helpful. My only small complaint is that a large percentage of the staff are foreigners from the UK and Australia who are not from the Whistler area (or even from Canada). The staff are still helpful, though they are not experts on the region since most of them have not been in the area more than 6 months or so. At times, it was hard to find a staff member who was actually Canadian in order to ask a question regarding the area. Overall though, this is a very minor complaint as all of the staff were so friendly and nice.
I absolutely will be coming back here again!
