Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This was our second year visiting Nita Lake Lodge, and we stayed in a suite again. Last time was in the middle of winter, and the beautiful surroundings would be tough to beat. However the scenery in the spring was just as beautiful, in a different way.
The staff was outstanding, with Lynda at the front desk getting extra-special mention for making sure we were taken care of.
Dinner at Aura again, new chef, new menu that really offers a wide variety both in terms of selection and in terms of affordability.
Overall the second trip might have been even better than the first, and we'll definitely be going back.

Room Tip: The suites are excellent value for the money. Comfortable beds and a relaxing ambiance.

Fab hotel, beautiful location, friendly staff. Shuttle bus drivers (in particular John and Glen) ensured we made the most of our stay with their knowledge of Whistler and recommendations for places to eat. 10/10

Room Tip: Recommend higher floors for a good view if you are on the mountain side of the hotel.

This beautiful lodge was a perfect escape in the mountains. We were welcomed wonderfully and had excellent evening meal in the restaurant. The room was beautiful with a big bed and plenty of space. Don't forget your slippers as the floor tiles are cold. Lovely lounge bar to enjoy the evening. The lake is easy to stroll alongside and nice for some fresh air. Shuttle bus works really well to go up and down to whistler village and was more convenient than expected. It was very prompt at leaving on the dot - no bad thing.
Only complaint that breakfast was pricey and not as good as anticipated, service or food.

Room Tip: We didn't go for a lake view and the room was still wonderful

My husband and I spent two luxurious nights at Nita Lake Lodge. The lodge itself is designed to blend in with the gorgeous lake and spectacular mountains surrounding the area. The rooms are A-1. Comfortable beds, gas fireplace and a bathtub built for two. Our room also had full amenties for snacks or a light meal indoors or for sitting outside on our patio.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. If we have the opportunity to stay in Whister again, we would be staying there...

We booked our stay here for one night only, but loved it so much we actually extended our trip so we could come back! It is situated in the perfect location just a five minute shuttle ride from Whistler Village, but right on a great walking trail around Nita Lake starting at the front door. Our room was spotless, had a great soaker tub and the bed was very comfortable. They offer views of either Nita Lake or Creekside - we were on Creekside and the highlight of my morning was waking up to a great mountain view. Loved the outdoor hot tubs. The staff were phenomenal - especially Samantha and Hannah from the front desk who were able to accommodate our last minute room request upon our return! Very calming and relaxing place - we'll definitely return.

We had booked a one bedroom suite and arrived close to midnight so were not able to see much of any type of view outside by the time we arrived. Since it was late April on a weekday, there were only a small handful of cars in the parking lot, meaning low occupancy. The suite was a good size and decor did meet the expectation of a 4 star hotel. The kitchenette met our need of a microwave. However this hotel deserves a poor rating because in the morning when I opened up the blinds, I saw the worst view in all the hotels I have stayed at in Whistler - and I go several times a year. Because they had put us on the lowest floor, our bedroom looked right into a large upward tilting "green" roof of barren soil, and dried dead grass. Okay, I didn't fork out the extra $40 for a lake view, but this room is close to $200 after taxes and fees. So why am I seeing this? Yes, there were mountains that peeped from behind, but it is difficult to ignore this mess in front of our porch. I have nothing against green roofs but this barren mess was overwhelming. If they had low occupancy, then would it not make sense to not stick me in a room with such a "view"? My little girl called it the "yuckiest" view she has seen in a hotel. Such a shame because I love the location of the hotel.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the lake view, otherwise it is not worth the money to stay there.

Dear Wendy,
Thank you for writing a review of your stay.
Please accept our sincere apologies for the disappointment with your view. The plot is soon to be our herb and vegetable garden that will provide fresh ingredients for our dining outlets. However, unfortunately our landscaping has been delayed due to fluctuating temperatures and snow earlier in the week. We are truly sorry for that this delay had a negative impact on your stay.
We hope that with the beautiful sunshine we have right now that our garden will be looking like spring very soon. We hope that we will be able to welcome you back in the future to a view of the lake or our garden and mountain view.
Please be sure to contact me personally if you would like to discuss your stay further or if I can be of any assistance.
Kindest Regards,
Nancy Steward - Guest Relations Manager - nancy@nitalakelodge.com

I have stayed here a couple of times and loved it. This hotel is not in the centre of the action, but in a good way. The rooms have a beautiful view of Nita Lake, the restaurant is decent, they are close to Creekside gondola and run a reliable shuttle if you don't want to walk the short distance. The bathroom alone is worth booking the hotel. The bathtub is spectacular. The room includes a thoughtful little cupboard kitchenette with important basics like cutlery, glasses, a toaster, etc.

If you want more details or info on Whistler, I have an article about our stay on my blog: http://discerningadventure.wordpress.com/2014/04/25/easter-weekend-at-whistler/
