The best accommodation in Whistler

Advice

The sprawling Whistler Village is home to the majority of the resort’s restaurants, bars, shops and hotels. Upper Village, at the foot of Blackcomb, about 10 minutes walk from the centre, is quieter, being further away from the nightlife. To the southwest is Creekside. Now Whistler mountain’s second base, it was where the resort started as a locals’ mountain in the mid-1960s. It has a gondola to Whistler mountain, and is now a quiet base of condo apartments, private homes, bars and restaurants.

All three locations provide direct access to the ski area. There is a free bus service between Whistler Village and Upper Village, although it can be just as quick to walk along the pedestrian-only trails. It’s a five minute bus ride between the Village and Creekside – ticket charges apply.

The most recent opening, with bookings taken for 2023/24, is New Wedge Mountain Lodge & Spa, a fully serviced private retreat with ten bedrooms, spa, cinema and children’s area.

Hotels do not include breakfast as standard and half-board accommodation is rare – however they may offer free shuttle buses around the resort for getting to the slopes and restaurants.
