Nita Lake Lodge
Ranked #1 of 49 Hotels in Whistler
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2014

In the past I don't like staying at a ski resort hotel in the summer. That's why we chose Nita Lake Lodge, to not be stuck in town with all the tourists. I enjoyed the hotel, but for prices on par to the Four Seasons up the street, I expected better service. The first room given to us, although we paid for the premium lake front room, was lake front but obstructed by the patio awning. Had to insist on a better view. Housekeeping was thorough, but inconsistent, one day in room coffee & coffee creamers were replenished, the next day they were not. Also a persistent problem was the Wi-Fi...having to re enter the password over and over every 2 minutes was unbearable and made it impossible to get my work done. I also did not like the big tour busses that clog the street, perhaps they use the end of the small street for easy parking? Plusses were easy self parking, proximity to Whistler, a large room with a great thermostat, and the free gym and bike rentals.

Room Tip: 213 had a great view.

This is just one of those place where pretty much everything is "right" and if you add great weather to the mix, it will make it for an unforgettable stay

What I liked: Nice lodge style resort, facing lake. Lots of nearby (and relatively easy) walking and biking trail. Good size, modern rooms. Premium amenities. Friendly and helpful staff. Peaceful - close enough to "Downtown" Whistler, but still a certain distance so a bit quieter. Another plus on location is that for those using public transportation into / out of Whistler, it is fairly close to the Whistler "transportation" hub, and the hotel is connected to the Rocky/Whistler Mountaineer station. Very comfy beds

What to watch for: Food - Although the quality of the food offering is top notch, service was relatively slow when I was there. Portion sizes are also relatively small

All in: Highly recommended for a Whistler getaway

We stated in a lake view suite over an extended weekend in April. The views were lovely, but being in the main floor there is a public trail so we were woken up by early morning dog walkers. The room was comfortable and the service was friendly. The kitchenette had a mini fridge, a sink, coffee making supplies and a microwave. The main restaurant was expensive, but the meal was nice. The shuttle service was convenient and the location was a short walk to creek side. Overall I would recommend staying here, it was a nice getaway from the city.

Nita Lake Lodge was a fantastic experience

* Great views of the Nita Lake
* Staff was fantastic. They went above and beyond was is typically expected of hotel staff. They were friendly and willing to help with our every request.
* Hotel offers a free shuttle into town. The shuttle drivers (Glen and Kyle) were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They took the time to give us good advice about dining and activities. We could tell they really enjoy their job.
* Room exceeded our expectations. It was spotless clean and decorated very nicely (great Pacific Northwest feel).
* Hotel offers free use of bikes, kayaks and canoes. The bikes were of high quality. The hotel sits on a bike trail, so we were able to make good use of the bikes.

In summary, we loved it!

Lovely property but if you are paying extra for a lake view and are not especially tall, you may want to avoid rooms that have a wooden balcony. My husband and I, who are of average height, found that when seated on the balcony or in the room the wood obstructs the view and we could not see the lake. We could only see the lake by standing on the balcony or in the room. My impression is that most rooms with balconies have balconies made of glass (or some clear material) but this distinction is not made by the front desk.

Great hotel n a wonderful patio overlooking the lake. The sable fish dish is to die for n they don't mind if you place a repeat order! Only a short walk from the train station, should you choose to come up from Vancouver by train. About 5-6 mins. from the Creekside gondola / Whistler mountain, not to forget the legendary Dusty's pub .

Book it and go! A wonderful place in every sense: Whistler, Nita Lake, the lodge.... This beautiful place is spectacular with very friendly and helpful people. We enjoyed the complementary use of the canoe, bikes, paddle boards, and the shuttle service to/from town. We can either be active (canoeing, biking,...) or just relax (on our balcony, in the giant lake view bathtub in our room, or lounge lakeside) without having to leave Nita at all. One of the most breathtaking and enjoyable places we have ever stayed.

A shoutout to Jon, the shuttle driver. He was a wealth of information and so kind and personable. Thank you, Jon.

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are well-done, but a lake view room is the way to go.
