We stayed here for seven nights. I find it hard to say anything bad about this hotel. The staff is great. They have a shuttle service that will take you anywhere you want to go. The shuttle will even pick you up and take you between destinations. Not just to and from the hotel. This saved a lot of money on taxis which are extremely expensive in Whistler. We had to use a taxi one morning to go to the fresh tracks breakfast since the hotel shuttle does not start until 7:30 and I swear it costs us .10 cents a second regardless of distance. Our room was great, lots of room and both a tub and a separate walk in shower. Heated floors in the bathroom were a nice touch. There is a separate sitting area with a fireplace. The bedroom had a balcony attached with a sliding door that you can open from the top to let fresh air in on warmer nights. Adequate refrigerator and sink with dishes. The in room french press was great. Unlike most resort hotels, it is better not to get a mountain view room. We had a lake view room and it was very private and quiet. The mountain view rooms face the road which I would find less private.
The location is great. I found it nice to be in the Creekside area. It is much quieter and you avoid the mad rush to the village at the end of the ski day. The hotel also offers a heated locker room (with complimentary locks) at the base of the gondola. It was very nice to be able to walk the 3 blocks to gondola in street clothes instead of ski boots.
The amenities and food at this location are great. You can make requests to the concierge through their website once you book your stay. We had wine, flowers and fruit waiting upon arrival. The fine dining restaurant is called Aura. It would be one of the top rated restaurants in Whistler if it weren't only a few years old. We had a five course dinner with wine pairings and it was possibly our most enjoyable dinner of the trip (we hit all the major fine dining spots in whistler). We also ate breakfast at Aura a couple of mornings which was great and casual (we wore our ski pants). Eggs Benedict was my favorite and on some days you can substitute fresh duck eggs. The Cure Lounge offers the same great food from the Aura kitchen but in a more casual setting. Aura cures its own meats and the charcuterie board served in the Cure Lounge was amazing. They also make great drinks. We really enjoyed the Saki Margarita. We also used the spa one day and it was what you would expect from the hotel. Very relaxing, we had a private couples room and had lunch served in the spa. There is also a nice steam room and two outdoor hot tubs.
Nita Lake lodge is great and the staff is very attentive. The price was high as we expected but the service and amenities make it of great value. If you are going to vacation in Whistler you shouldn't plan on getting away cheap anyway.
