  • So what's it like?

    The Crystal Lodge has been one of the most popular hotels in Whistler for quite some time. The location is superb - in the heart of Whistler Village and just steps from the Whistler and Blackcomb gondolas, so you can ski back to the base from either mountain.

    What's more, the hotel has continued to exceed expectations by having recently undergone extensive renovation to their South Wing rooms and public areas. This transformation has given the rooms a complete re-design with clean lines and cool decor to complement the stunning mountain scenery. There's LED lighting, flatscreen TVs and even the hotel's signature deep-soaker bathtubs in the bathrooms.

    After the mountain has got the better of you, you can unwind in the large outdoor pool, or relax muscles in the sauna and hot tub. If you're up for a bit of retail therapy, or are feeling peckish, the Crystal Lodge has over 20 onsite shops and restaurants, including the Spaghetti Factory, Beacon Pub & Eatery, Basalt Wine & Salumeria and the Wild Wood Pacific Bistro.

    There's often complimentary hot chocolate or cider in reception, and to make things even better, customers will receive a Crystal Advantage Card on their arrival, which gives discounts in 22 local shops and restaurants.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.
