Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

If you don't want to be in with the entire crowd because you like a little quiet, Nita Lake Lodge is your answer. It's very quiet, rooms are beautiful and functional. When you interact with the hotel they're very friendly and service oriented. Only issue we had was the shuttle which never came after calling hotel and waiting over an hour. It was unacceptable. Shuttle has a drop every half hour from the village. Hotel will pay for a taxi which was good. Rooms were beautiful, fireplace nice, bathroom great from space to water pressure. Only weird thing is that you never really see anyone else in the hotel including staff. It's quiet. Only 2.5 mi from the village! Would highly recommend. Other than the shuttle the only thing that didn't work although free was the wi/fi. Had to sit in our hallway to stop from relogging in every 2 min. Seriously!

Stayed: November 2013

We came to Nita Lake Lodge for our honeymoon from Australia. It was amazing just like people have said on trip advisor. Our room was lovely and huge. The bathroom was fantastic and the fire place in the room is nice and cosy. The bar in the lobby does great and cheap cocktails and try to burger it's great. Aura for breakfast is lovely and priced well too. The shuttle bus is a huge advantage of this hotel. I used the spa too and had a lovely facial and manicure and the outdoor hot tub is great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Whistler and will be coming back for sure one day.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a lake view

I stayed in this hotel awhile ago and I am finally catching up on my reviews. I loved this place. We had a room with a lake view and were blessed with gorgeous weather. This meant the lake was looking absolutely incredible. Wow. I spent one night here with my partner and we had a massage and ate in house.

The massage was amazing and I could not have felt more relaxed when I left. It was a struggle to get down to dinner I was so relaxed.

We ate in the restaurant, Aura I think it's called. We sat by the window over looking the lake which is an amazing setting to have dinner beside. The service was great, as was the food and the wine.

By the time we hit the hay we were ready for a comfortable night and the bed didn't disappoint, very comfy.

I would definitely recommend this place for an array of occasions. One of the best in Whistler!

Room Tip: Lake View!!!

We stayed at Nita Lake over the New Year period. The hotel is situated on Nita Lake, away from the hustle and bustle of Whistler village. The hotel itself is fairly modern with a rustic charm. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We stayed in a junior lake view suite, which was spacious and well appointed. Breakfast was included in the room rate and this was excellent. The hotel bar is nice and welcoming after a long day on the slopes. The lodge runs a regular shuttle to/from the village and slopes (which was most welcome) but the only downside is this is run on a first come, first served basis. Would highly recommend and probably stay there again.

We stayed at the Lodge December 2013. The personnel were welcoming and accomodating with our requests and inquiries. We had a "studio" room and it was more than adequate for our needs. Heated tile floors, wonderful soft bead and nice linens, clean rooms, excellent service, fabulous location (not ski in/out, but you would be across the road into Creekside for that. Just 5 min south from Whistler village), with plenty of amenities right there. We took a dip in the hot tub as it was snowing! The bar onisite (I'll review it separately if it's here on tripadvisor) provides plenty of great options (a bit pricey, but just our perspective). We didn't eat in th restaurant, but it appeared elegant. The train station runs right beside the hotel extension. There are pathways that can be hiked/walked all the way back to the main village. They also run very convenient shuttles throughout the area. We would definately stay here again and highly recommend it as well. Only thing to remember is that you would still probably want to have a vehicle for a bit more freedom and with that you have to pay for parking.

Room Tip: The studios are very adequate for space for a couple.

In actuality, our experience with NLL started well before our trip. We had booked two studios (all that was left) for a party of 5. Samantha, totally awesome, called us to confirm that we actually needed two rooms, and then found us an adjoining suite that was less $$ when booked directly with NLL. So she saved me money and got us a better set-up even before we arrived. +++

We did have some small issues on-site (I didn't find all of the staff to be friendly, some folks really stood out while others sort of referred us around to find help elsewhere). I would say that was my biggest issue, and even that was manageable. I thought the breakfast, and staff at Aura were terrific all around. I loved the lounge for a quick bite after a long day -- you order downstairs and then you can take it up to your room to eat. The staff and food at FIX was great too. FIX is much more economical than Aura in reality and still very delicious.

Some craziness before our trip made it so that I didn't even realize that we'd be 6-8km from Whistler Village, in the much more mellow Creekside area. But this turned out to be a huge positive. It was quiet, and we had everything we needed at NLL and in the vicinity (yummy though expensive pizza at Creekbread, easy access to mountain, mellow ski school for kids, etc).

In summary, with all the great reviews that NLL gets, they have high expectations to meet you actually arrive! The rooms are just as big (but cozy) as billed, and our experience was, all-in-all, lovely.
