“Magnificent”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We recently stopped at Nita Lake for our second time, the rooms are finished to a high standard, TV in sitting room and bedroom, heated floor in bathroom with large bath tub and separate large shower. Large reception with feature fire place.The staff were extremely helpful and went out of there way to make our stay is enjoyable, nothing was too much trouble, the bar has a great atmosphere, and is relaxing the food served is good. The surrounding lake and walks are enjoyable and you are only a 5 km walk from Whistler Village or if not up to the walk there is the Hotel shuttle. This is one of my favorite hotels and I can not recommend this hotel highly enough and look forward to planning my next vacation.

Husband and I stayed at the hotel for our wedding anniversary and we loved it. We had a lake view room and the view from the balcony is gorgeous! The room we stayed in was clean, quiet, and very spacious for the two of us. The bathroom was decent-sized too. We like the fact that the hotel is not in the Whistler village, away from the hustle and bustle of the village. The shuttle service is very convenient and with very friendly drivers.

Would love to visit again during summer so that we can take advantage of the kayaks and bikes.

Room Tip: Choose the lakeside view! The view from the balcony is amazing

As former long time residents we wanted to stay close to our former home and neighbours. Village is an easy walk on Valley Trail or short bus ride on the free shuttle. Especially in summer, perfect to be at the lakeside with all the related activities....Best cappuccinos in Whistler are served in the Fix Café and all food from hotel kitchen is excellent. Comfortable rooms with all expected amenities. Would like to see parking fees wrapped in room rates...

Room Tip: worth to pay for lakeview

My family and I stayed here for Ironman Canada 2014. WOW, we loved it! Rooms were gorgeous and super quiet. We took advantage of the complementary amenities like kayaks, SUPs and bikes which was a huge plus for us. The food in Aura (and the Fix Cafe) was awesome and our server (Ana) was a delight. The shuttle service to Whistler Village was extremely convenient and we basically never had to wait (not that we're opposed to waiting, but it was nice). We enjoyed getting to know Glen, one of the shuttle drivers, who is a long time local and gave us great advice and tips. It was one of our best family trips ever and we can't wait to come back!

Because the Hotel is just 5 km away from downtown Whistler you can easyly walk along different trails
It's fun!
A free shuttle bus is also available.
Spend some time at one of the beautyful lakes nearby.
The Hotel offers free bikes, canooes and paddle boats.
Have breakfast on the lakeside deck. It's a perfect start for the new day.

Room Tip: Seaside is the best, choose middle of building

Nita Lake Lodge is located a few kilometers from the centre of Whistler. They provide a free shuttle bus to the centre, so you can park your car in the parking garage and leave it there during your stay. They mostly drop you of at the visitor centre, in which you can call Nita Lake reception when they need to pick you up again. This phone is located inside, at the left back of the visitor centre. Or ask the people there.

Parking cost you CAD20 a day, so a bit expensive in a large, thinly populated country where there is plenty of room for everyone and everything. But ok, the staff at the reception (which is located of the right side of the building, and NOT on the left where there is another reception for the spa) is friendly and the check in procedure is quick and efficient. You get a map and directions to anything you like.

The room we got was spacious, and so was the bedroom having a seperate shower and bath. So you don't have to stand in a slippery bath when you like to shower. The room even included a kind of kitchenette (located in a closet!) and a fire place. Very nice.

The bed slept well, although one of us found it a little soft.

Everything was clean and kept on being cleaned every day.

Wifi was fast, we could Skype without any problems.

You can borrow bikes and canoes if you want to, also for free, which is a nice touch.

Aura, the restaurant they have on the premises, is not cheap, but serves tasty, local food. We had a very nice dinner there, sitting outside, viewing the lake and with the terrace heated switched on to keep us warm. You are served by friendly people, where we had a nice chat with as well (it was quiet that night).

The only disadvantage of Nita Lake Lodge is that it is not cheap, and the feeling you get (in entire Whistler) that it is too touristic. Lots of towns and places we saw during our West Canada trip we more rough, more authentic. In Whistler you feel that they polished up (more) because of the Olympics and that the tourist dollars are being harvested now. Whistler is nice, some beautiful scenery for sure, but you can say that about a lot of other places in Canada too.

The train drops off right on site of this beautiful upscale hotel. Food was lovely, bed was exquisite and our room was upgraded when we got there due to a wedding party. Even though the place was packed with people it was still relaxing and had the very best walking trails to explore. The only down side was the teeny tiny kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms were the most glorious I have seen anywhere. Service was second to none. We would love to go back but need to save up a bit first.

Room Tip: facing the lake if possible
