Located in the heart of Whistler Village surrounded by aprés-ski and various retail stores, as well as being just steps from the gondolas at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, The Westin Whistler Resort and Spa is a top ski resort hotel when planning a trip to Whistler, BC on Canada's west coast.

And with its close proximity to numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the hotel is walking distance to Whistler's best-known entertainment and other world-renowned attractions such as Olympic Plaza with an outdoor skating rink among numerous ski equipment stores and souvenir shops.
It's also just a fews steps from the entrance to the Whistler Gondola at the base-area of Blackcomb or a short 10-minute ride to the base of Whistler Mountain. For a hassle free ski-in ski-out experience, the hotel offers a ski valet to all guests. This is one service that is well worth it.
While the hotel's suites accommodate any size party, all 419 of them are equipped with a kitchenette, a rock-faced fireplace and flat screen TV. The rooms offer bright views with floor-to-ceiling windows—which in some rooms lead to an outside balcony or patio—of Whistler's natural habitat; sprawling valleys, vast mountains, deep forests, the quant village or golf course are each available upon request. Warm, earthy tones decorate the rooms, which gives the feeling of both serenity and comfort.
The Westin Whistler Resort and Spa provides an extra comfortable night's sleep in their signature Heavenly Beds featured in every room. Better than described, the beds will have you feelings like you're among the clouds and not wanting to leave come the morning.

The indoor/outdoor pool is also another feature to help you enjoy your stay, while the fitness center, equipped with cardio machines and free-style weights, will help you get your day's workout in.
