“Great weekend at an excellent lodge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2011

we stayed at the Nita lake lodge for 2 days and had a great time. Since we had gotten a deal through gilt.com the value for money was a-freaking-mazing !!
Our room was huge with a view of Whistler mountain, and was very clean. Hotel staff was super friendly, gave us all the info needed, drove us to and from Whistler village multiple times.

Nita Lake Lodge is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. Being in Creekside was much quieter than being in Whistler Village which suited us just fine. The free shuttle (a Land Rover) took us into the village anytime we wanted to go. The room was very nice - modern rustic is the best description we could come up with. The staff was excellent especially Rich and Lauren who welcomed us and got us settled quite nicely. If you are looking for luxury and a relaxing atmosphere, Nita Lake Lodge should be your choice. Loved the kitchenette with toaster and french press.

Room Tip: 3rd floor and above for unobstructed views.

I have been to Whistler 6 times now. I have stayed in a variety of places. We have stayed at the Nita Lake Lodge twice now. Since we travel to Whistler once a year, we will only stay at the Nita Lake Lodge. It is our home away from home. Even though our tendency is to venture out and explore new surroundings, we have fallen in love over and over again with the Nita Lake Lodge. We just departed 3 days ago, and we are already planning our next trip.

Why Nita Lake Lodge:

1) Location, location, location- the lake and the tranquil surroundings makes this place the most relaxing place on earth. It is very nice to be away from the crowds. You really feel like you are away from the masses. It brings you closure to nature and the beauty of BC.
2) The people- Since this is our second stay, we were happy to see some familiar faces. We also met some new folks who work at the lodge. We especially enjoyed the company of Su Chan- she helped me develop my new favorite martini- The Whistler Kristini. It is a new spin off of the once served Fleur di Li. This drink was pre- Hailey (the new bar manager). We also enjoyed the company of Colin Schira who infused vodka with grapefruit and basil, and made us some special late night after dinner cocktails. The extremely creativie and interesting conversation really made the trip extra enjoyable. These individuals really enjoy people and the artistry of exploring new and interesting culinary cocktail inventions. We had so much fun discussing new ideas and variations on food and cocktails. We discussed travel desitnations and influences on our ideas. It was a great mix ture of individuals that made this place our home for the week.
3) Super Star Treatment- Everyone at the lodge really makes you feel like you are the most important person in the world. When we asked for more shampoo, it arrived in less than 5 minutes. Everyone who works here enjoys their job. They enjoy giving you the best experience possible. Everyone is so consistent.
4) The room- we love the decor. It is a pleasant mix of modern/ contemporary with a rustic woodsie element, which matches the destination. The full person bath tub fit my husband who is over 6'4". I caught him taking multiple baths, which he cannot do at home. They also provide a kitchenette. This allowed us to make french pressed cofffee in the morning with Bailey's.
5) Free Shuttle- even though this location is off the beaten path, you can find your way to any location in the Upper Village and in Whistler Village. It truly is a free shuttle.

We would highly recommend a stay. It has been such a pleasure to stay at this beautiful destination. We will be back soon!

Cheers~

We were in room 316,a corner room. I think it was considered a valley view. It was a large studio with vaulted ceiling, gas fp, flat screen tv with satelite, loads of cupboards for your clothes, and a beautifully tiled bathroom with heated floors. A special gift of chocolates and a personal note of congratulations was waiting for us upon arrival. Many of the staff made sure to give us best wishes for our anniversary. They are all so warm and friendly.
In the room, one cubboard concealed a sink, microwave, hot water pot, coffee pot, dishes and siverware, cups and wine glasses for two. The coffee and tea bags provided were excellent. There was room for storing your own foods as well. Can't ski without my oatmeal! The king bed was plush and comfy as were the sofa and chairs. The balcony had a set of chairs , lots of room and a lovely mountain view. Although we overlooked an active rail line, the train noise never even bothered us. No whistle blowing, just the quiet click of the cars going slowly. I was perfectly happy without the lake view, we didn't spend that much time on the balcony or looking out the windows.
My one and only complaint about the room was the lighting in the bathroom. The glare of the ceiling lights cast shadows and I couldn't get my makeup on comfortably. There were no vanity lights over the mirror.
There was a very powerful blow dryer in the bathroom and the beautiful tile is a rough cut multi-earth toned sandstone that felt warm from the geothermal heating system and was not at all slippery which I liked alot. The room temperature was always comfortable too.
Housekeeping did a great job and the front desk staff were fabulous, happy and helpful. The spa is lovely and was convenient to get to from this room. The hot tubs are outside on the roof and you go through the spa to get to them. I don't think the Lodge was at full capacity while we were there because the tubs were never crowded.
The location of the Lodge is a quiet area with a convenience store store and a pub very close. They also provide a Land Rover and a driver to take you anywhere you want and pick you up. Again, we never had to wait and the drivers were delightful and full of information. You may want to consider one of the buses or shuttles instead of renting a car since parking (anywhere in whistler) is a minimum of $20 a night! However, we drove up past Pemberton and the scenery was magnificent, well worth having the car.
The hotel has complimentary ski lockers very close to the Creekside gondola or you can bring your skis back to the hotel and they have a storage closet. The ski lockers are located just below the Can Ski rental and is very convenient for changing equipment or dealing with problems.
We had an exquisite dinner at the restaurant one evening and I was very satisfied with the quality and presentation of the food for our special day.
Overall, we were extremely satisfied and extended our stay past our 3 day reservation for a total of 6 days there. I think this hotel deseves its high rating.
A convenient treat for us, right next to the Lodge is a pub/ restaurant frequented by the locals with great hot wings and a killer butternut squash soup!. It was great food, fast service and a friendly, comfortable environment.

Room Tip: Call the hotel front desk manager for best pricing

We stayed for 10 nights at Nita Lake Lodge and had a wonderful stay.

The hotel is pretty new and rooms are excellent, big bed, massive TV, huge bathroom with heated slate floor etc and kettle / microwave / fridge for any small food things you want in your room.

Hotel is only about 5 mins walk from the Creekside lift which is the first to open on the mountain each day (apart from freshtracks) and they have a really convenient locker room by the lifts for your gear.

Don't think because the hotel is in Creekside that's a bad thing, anything but. Creekside is home to the best restaurant in Whistler - Rim Rock, the best Apres - Dustys and the finish of 2 of the best ski runs on Whistler Blackcomb - Peak to Creek and Million Dollar Ridge. Plenty of other good places to eat in Creekside - Southside Dinner and Players Chophouse (beer and a pizza for $10 on Weds there).

The 3 places to eat at the hotel are all great - Aura restaurant, stylish bar and fix deli.

We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Spa treatments are great.

The staff at this lodge made us feel like we were the only ones staying there. Rich and Lindsay went above and beyone to make sure we did everything on our wish list. Linda and Ren were always available at the front desk to answer any questions. We had the 5 course dinner in Aura and were blown away by the food and service. There were great hiking trails right outside our door. We would have liked to have been a little closer to the slopes, but the lodge does have a car and driver when you need quick transportation. If they can't get to you quickly, they will send a cab at their expense. Our one bedroom Nita suite was amazing. We loved coming in from the slopes to relax in front of the fireplace every evening. The heated tile floor in the bathroom was one of our favorite things. The view from our balcony was breathtaking. We would love to see everything when the snow melts. We will definitely stay there again.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us and more importantly, your fellow travellers! I am excited to learn that you had a great stay and enjoyed Chef's 5 Course dinner menu. More importantly, I am glad to hear that our efforts to supplement the on call shuttle service with taxi vouchers during periods of high demand have been successful. We would love to show you what Whistler is all about during the summer season when you can soak up some sunshine beside Nita Lake just steps away from our patio out back!

What an amazing place, stayed here with my brother for a ski/boarding weekend. The people were helpful and always smiling, the room was clean, spacious and had an amazing view of the mountain! The Creekside gondola was a few minutes away, and there was storage near the gondola for our gear (provided by the hotel). The Range Rover shuttle was great, comfortable and smooth ride, no dirty old buses here. Will return again and again. The shower in the steam room at the spa was perfect for sore muscles . Subtle luxury hideaway for celebrities (shh) on the down low or anyone seeking comfort in the mountains without the ten-thousand room experience.
