“Nice view No Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2012

Nice room with an oustanding view but No Room service ! Tv worked less then half of our stay and the grounds off season look sad. Patio door is hard to open this sounds like a odd thing to post but when you arrive and try it you will remember this post. Not at all up to its ratings off season. Only planned to stay one night in Whistler ended up staying another night at Westin just to get the bad taste out of my mouth. Cafe is open limited hours with no room service or take out of hot food. Staff is usless except the bellman and manager. I offered the manager to bring me food to my room for a $20 tip he did but mentioned this would not be possible had the hotel been busy. It should be if your selling the hotel on a resort not a motel.

Room Tip: Face the lake otherwise stay somewhere else

My husband and I just celebrated our 5th Anniversary in Whistler and after reading reviews of properties on Trip Advisor we chose Nita Lake Lodge. It was exactly what we wanted and what the the reviews said we could expect. It's a gorgeous lodge and the staff are helpful and friendly. The location was great, we wanted to be close to Whistler but not in the Village Center because we wanted to avoid noise. Nita Lake was a perfect place to rest. We booked a one bedroom lakeview room and it was definitely worth it. If we get a chance to return to Whistler we will definitely stay at Nita Lake again.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are worth it.

Oct 2012 stayed at a studio lake view room 212. Stunning views, friendly staff, and beautiful accommodations best describes this resort. The design of the resort is west-coast luxury. Beautiful art pieces, excellent combination of stone and wood, and modern style furniture. The rooms are very large and bathroom had large soaker tub and shower. Front staff, shuttle driver, and bell door were very friendly and efficient. Shuttle service to the village and front desk were quick and friendly. Luggage were in the room afte check-in. Hotel restaurant experience (Aura) was excellent. High quality organic dishes with great atmosphere and service. Spa and yoga services were available. Only downside of this resort is no room service, didn't great us a happy anniversary during dinner, and didn't like the pillows. Overall great experience and will return soon.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments on your recent stay with us. I do apologize that your anniversary wasn't acknowledged at dinner as we do our very best to make every guest feel special. I will be sure that our Restaurants Manager is made aware. The next time you stay be sure to ask for a different pillow option as we do have alternatives. We look forward to seeing you soon!

My wife and I stayed for two nights in early October. The setting is beautiful. The staff is professional, friendly and helpful. The rooms are upscale, clean and nicely appointed. The heated bathroom floors are a particularly nice and appreciated touch. We stayed in a lake view king suite with balcony-watching the light rain fall on the water was meditative. The only thing that interfered with total satisfaction with the stay there was the bed. The mattress could use a pillow top, and the linens definitely need upgrading.

We loved everything about this lodge, from the location and scenery, to the building itself -- all wood and stone, to the room. This was the nicest room we stayed in during this 2 week trip, which included some very fine hotels. The room was large, well appointed, including a large stone gas fireplace. The bathroom was huge, all in stone, with a heated floor, whirlpool tub plus a stall shower. We hated to leave! The staff was great. There is a free shuttle on demand that takes you to the town of Whistler. There is also the free use of bicycles and several bicycle paths to explore. We only had one night here, but could easily have stayed longer.

If you’re looking for the best place to stay in Whistler, the Nita Lake Lodge will not disappoint. This hotel, with its beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces, is pure luxury. No detail has been overlooked from the well-stocked mini kitchen to the sumptuous offerings at Aura.

We had a lake view room which I highly recommend because the view of Nita Lake is so soothing and peaceful. Obviously a great cleaning staff as everything was super clean. Pets are welcome on every floor but the 3rd.

The food, wow, so many excellent choices. The Fix café near the entrance will provide quick snacks for the day such as cookies, muffins, sandwiches, coffee. Be sure to purchase the frozen cookie dough so you can bake up some Nita Lodge memories at home. The dining room menu is innovative and reasonably priced. Our stay included a per person $15.00 breakfast voucher. Our favorite breakfast was the perfectly presented curried eggs.

You can count on the staff to meet your most frivolous needs. They are friendly, courteous and professional. They are very knowledgeable about the area and able to answer all of your travel questions.

The free shuttle service is more like a personal chauffeur service. We were in no way inconvenienced by the short distance from town because when we called for a ride, they asked our location and came within minutes. We never used our car once. This was a real treat. There is also secure underground parking (our parking was free with an on-line coupon).

Other amenities that make this lodge outstanding are: the on-site spa, complimentary bikes (with helmets & locks) for 3 hours and a paved biking/walking trail right out the back door that goes all the way into Whistler. We walked on the trail one day (2 hours into town) and rode the bikes the next. There’s also a public dock right out the back door so bring your fishing rod, canoe and water toys. Or walk to one of the lakes close by, Alta or Alpha, and have a picnic or swim at their lovely beaches. So many choices, so much to do.

The peace and quiet of this lodge combined with an outstanding staff and amenities put this place at the top of our Whistler list. Can’t wait to go back!

Room Tip: Get a lake view room.

Perfect for a stay in Whistler if you like tranquility and being away from the crowds. Lodge is around 5km from Whistler Village and serviced by a free, on demand shuttle from the hotel which works well (and I believe up until 10pm). We stayed in a lakeview suite which had a separate lounge area with fireplace. This was a corner suite; cost a bit extra but worth it for the space. View from balcony over lake was spectacular. Decor in the hotel is fantastic with extensive use of wood and stone and for a small hotel it has lots of different areas to eat and lounge in, so never crowded. We got a $15 pp credit for breakfast as we booked direct with the hotel and this was certainly ample to have a great breakfast every day. We also ate dinner and 1 lunch at the lodge and food was fantastic each time, and not expensive, we felt, for the standard of the hotel. Also a great little coffee shop on site with fireplace, good for a light meal, coffee or snack. Agree with a previous reviewer that pillows were not the most comfortable and also bed sheets tended to come loose at night and get all rumpled up. Minor problems for what is otherwise a fantastic hotel.

Room Tip: Go for a lakeview suite if you can. The one bedroom suites are larger and have a door separating th...
