Absolutely loved Whistler, even given that we arent skiers.
The Pan Pacific Village Centre really fits in well and we thought was the prettiest looking hotel in the village. Every hotel in the village is well located given the way the the village is laid out and we had no complaints.
The view from our room was great as we looked out over the village to the mountains. The mountain side rooms would also be good, especially if you wanted to be able to watch the mountain action.
However we probably werent prepared for the hotel type it is, because as others have noted its not really a hotel as we are used to. Its relatively small, with a very quiet and compact lobbey that really doesnt have much to it. But I guess this hotel like others is designed for the snow season and as such is desgined to accomodate traffic which is different from a normal hotel.
The rooms also werent as luxurious as they look on the hotel web site, but having said that they are very comfortable, modern, clean and reasonably well appointed with a compact galley kitchen.
Overall I think you could do a lot worse than staying at the PP Village Centre and while it wasnt quite what we expected, there was nothing really wrong. But if you want ski village charm and elegance maybe there are better options.More
