As said in the title it does feel like the place needs a little update. However it is very clean, got eveything we need, great location and with good views. Compared to European stays the size is good. Hot tub was boiling!
- Free Wifi
My family is 4 strong and this unit was perfect for our current requirements. Small, compact and nicely appointed with serviceable appliances, clean comfortable linens and easy access to the Blackcomb base (and ski school!).
The bedroom is roomy and the bed comfortable. The kids sleeper couch was, as all sleeper couches, a little rough for an adult, but the children liked it. The TV was good, if old, and the full cable service a nice bonus.
We'll be back.
We stayed in the Marquise at Whistler for 3 nights in December 2011. This was booked through Resort Resevations Whistler, and they couldn't have been more helpful. The appartment was 2 Bedroom plus a loft, and 2 bathroom. It had a full kitchen, lounge, fireplace and views to die for. We absolutely loved staying there!!!! After full days out, it felt like 'coming home' when we got back each night. The beds were really comfy, and it was spotlessly clean. There were a couple of light bulbs out, but that is the worst I can say, and the manager came and fixed those!!!.
Wow - clearly needs an update. The fridge hummed all night and the bedding was from the 1990's!
We were also disappointed about having to check-in and check-out at The Aspens, across the road.
And.. the common key did not work to enter the pool and hot tub area.
We would not stay here again.
We paid 299 / night and this was very POOR value.
Unit 203 provided everything I'd expect for a one-bedroom condo, but nothing to impress. Adequate small kitchen. Plenty of space and closets. Room was too hot for me. I was given a phone number on checkin but there was no telephone in the unit; a call from my cellphone to the front desk had a phone delivered right away though. Short walk across the street to a skate-worthy path to the Blackcomb base. That path, and also the ski-in path, may be missing snow at some times of year, in which case it's a 5 minute walk to the slopes. A long walk (15min) to Whistler Village proper, but there's a convenient free shuttle bus that stops just outside. Front desk vacant, needed to check in at Blackcomb Lodge in the village. Unit and property very clean.
We stayed for 3 nights from Dec 27-30th. The location is great But I am not sure if the whole building is like this but our room was in need of an update in a bad way especially for the money we spent (300/night). The room was to hot and the thermostat didn't work. Also the bedroom had a TV but it wasn't hooked up so unusable. The bed was in very poor condition with a big sag and in need of replacement. We will not likely be staying here again. We also had to check in across the street as there is no on site front desk. We did have a good time despite the room and the basic area is great for ski in ski out.
