Over the Canadian Thanksgiving I reserved a room overlooking the lake at the Nita Lake Lodge. It is in the Creekside of Whistler, beside the train station, but it is very quiet as the trains only come once a day or so.
I had reserved a one bedroom suite, which was on the ground level of the hotel, very very spacious, with fireplace, two tvs, nice king sized bed and a patio overlooking the lake. Being outside of the village and away from the hustle and bustle is what we wanted and what we got. The rooms were spotless, and the bathroom was big enough to roll a cot into! Deep soaker tub and separate shower and loo. It was really a beautiful hotel.
The food in Aura, the main restaurant is some of the best I have had in all of Canada. Everything was done to perfection, except the cold stuffing that came with our turkey dinner. But it was nice to know that the restaurant tries to use local ingredients as much as it can. The foods were REALLY outstanding. After a heavy meal, the next morning we had breakfast in the coffee shop, all the breads are made of organic wheat and baked at the hotel....and the flavours again were so good!
If you are staying elsewhere, this is definately a place to go just to dine!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone...if you are going to ski or ride though, maybe one of the ones in the village might be better. But to get away from everyone, this is a great place to stay!
