My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Nita Lake Lodge mid March 2014 during our trip to Vancouver. The minute we arrived at the hotel, the staff came greeted us and helped us with our luggage (which was sent directly to our room) before directing us to their underground garage. Check-in was fast and our lift tickets and lessons / rentals were all made available at check-in. We are very impressed with their efficiency given hotels in Canada do not always have the best software. Oh and before we made a booking with them, we emailed them a few enquiries and their staff were always so patient (and fast in response) in answering our questions and giving us travel tips.
We had a lake view studio suite and the room was big with a tall ceiling and a functional fireplace which was very useful in drying our ski gloves and other gear after a day at the mountain. Bathroom was also big with a huge bath-tub. There was also a fully-equipped bar with toaster, fridge and kettle etc in the room. Bed was comfortable though the furnishing in the room is a little old - that said, the room is extremely clean.
We had breakfasts at the Aura which was lovely. Food at the lounge area which we had for a quick lunch on our first day after the drive from Vancouver was so-so though. Overall, prices of food at the hotel is very reasonable.
The property faces a lake and there is a trail that runs halfway around the lake from the hotel. We had a walk on the trail just before our dinner one evening and it was so quiet and tranquil. It was snowing during our trip so the lake was frozen and looked awesome.
The hotel offers a shuttle service to Creekside and the Village twice every hour so getting around Whistle was not an issue at all. The hotel staff driving the hotel was so friendly and asked us where we planned to have dinner. When we told him we were heading to Rim Rock Cafe on Creekside, he asked if we had a reservation. We said no and he immediately called the Cafe and made a booking for us last minute (literally just 2 minutes before we walked into the hotel). He even dropped us off at the Cafe and taught us how to walk back. If it wasn't for him, we wouldn't be able to dine at the Cafe as it was a very popular restaurant in the area.
Overall, the staff at the hotel are all very very friendly and would help us with everything, from taking care of our snowboarding equipment to loading/unloading luggage from our call. They would also call you to remind you of your reservations at the hotel's restaurant so the services are very personalised.
We have travelled to quite a few places, including resort chains in Asia which are known for their services. I must say Nita Lake Lodge is one of the best serviced hotels we have stayed in. I would recommend this hotel to any travellers who are looking for a quieter place to stay away from the village.
