Picking the right place to stay is key to any holiday, we picked the Crystal Lodge after recommendations from friends, they were not wrong.
We arrived pretty late at night due to the usual delays, Hannah behind the desk was friendly and helpful, Andy who carried our bags was just the same, giving you all the info you require for your stay in the Crystal and for Whistler.
1.Bed-super Kings size, very comfy, clean and very big, plenty of pillows.
2.Bathroom, clean and the usual things, hairdrier. clothes line etc etc, over the bath shower was adequate ( maybe lacked a little water pressure ) not a major issue.
3.Room is a reasonable size, good sized LCD TV, fridge, clock alarm with ipod dock, maid service every day so far.
There are 2 maybe 3 places to eat in the Crystal, Rics grill and the Old Spaghetti factory but we have eaten out every night so far, not for any other reason than we like to.
Ski room in the lobby, they label your ski/board and you just ask for room number and the guy goes and gets them, boots and poles stay in your room.
Outside pool and hot tub is brilliant, this evening after a hard day, we swam and sat in the tub, sun was shining and its a great way to ease aching muscles.
Hotel is 3 mins walk from Whistler and Balckcomb Gondolas, all bars and shops and supermarket are on the doorstep,
I cant compare it to other hotels in Whistler, but so far its been great and should we return, wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Maybe the only slight minus as some other reviews have said, the street is a little close and the usual late night revellers "may" disturb you a little, but not bothered us.
