“Quick Trip to Whistler”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

Our first time to Whistler on a very cold 2 days. The Tantalus was in an excellent location, the room was large, beds were comfortable, kitchen was well-equipped and the fireplace was cozy. The only drawback was the the hot tubs were across the road - rather inconvenient on a very cold day.

2 BedRm was spartan in design but everything worked right. Front desk very friendly and helpful. One single small elevator for the whole place was real odd. Easy walking distance to village. Nice lobby. Convenient shuttle service in beat up old van gets you up and over the short walking hill to the entry gate of the village, readily available during ski hours.

Very nice hotel in a perfect location ( 5 minutes walk from the village). Rooms are outdated but large with kitchen, fireplace, living room area etc. Rooms got cleaned every day. Staff at the hotel is very pleasant and helpful. Overall, great experience.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your comments. I am very happy to read you had a great experience and that our staff was pleasant and helpful.

I have taken note of your comment relating the feel of the room, as these are in a continual updating cycle. Just last year we updated mattresses, case goods and hallway carpets, and we have plans to further update our property this year. Needless to say we will still continue to offer convenient and accessible accommodations year round.

We look forward to welcome you back!!

Sincerely,

Luis Rivero

Just came back from a week in Whistler. Due to the differences in the xmas school break between Ontario and BC the first week in January was being discounted. The place was affordable (a real problem in Whistler as it is one expensive place at holiday times).
Well with a family of four (two teenagers) I leaped at the deal. Astounding result, not only could we afford it but the two bedroom condo unit had tons of room, was clean, usable with a full kitchenette and quietly located near the hill. And as if that wasn't enough we had hot tubs, saunas, fire place and a heated pool to enjoy. The staff even new where to eat-out economically in the village as well.
We'll be back! (Hopefully the stars will align again for the out-of-phase holiday dates.)

This lodge was close to the hill but not right in the action which is perfect for us. We like to be able to walk away and have a quiet night if we choose. We got a great deal on a 2 bed 2 bathroom room with a balcony. The staff were friendly and helpful. We would definately stay here again!

Great value for anyone travelling in a group that wants a nice apartment to relax in with fireplace and lounge to put your feet up. Spacious, clean, convenient ad good value for money. Only problem is the single beds are too small for 6ft adults.

Thank you very much for your comments. I am delighted to read you enjoyed our facilities and were able to find value during your stay with us. Our rooms are spacious and conveniently arranged to ensure you feel like at home and our twin beds are no exception as these are 75" long. We are very sorry the length of the mattress did not meet your needs.

We look forward to welcome you back and please do not hesitate to contact me at your convenience.

Great hotel, nice rooms, comfy beds but a little on the expensive side... enjoyed the shuttle to the lifts in the morning but would have liked to know the times for pick up. The pool was a perfect temperature but the hot tubs were a little small and overcrowded.
