Whistler, Canada
Reviewed 19 October 2015 via mobile

Very nice upgrade to one bedroom top floor with spectacular view. Executive lounge is not bad, but not as nice as at some other non US based locations. Breakfast is nicer in a restaurant than in the lounge. Location good and feels safe. All in all great place to stay.

I was here on business in the first week of October. I was 'given' this hotel as the last option as we were holding an event here and the allocated hotels were booked or too expensive. But I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel - not only was it in a great location but also the staff were very friendly...

Hilton properties can be variable in quality, and I'd put this one on the lower side. All the basics are here, the facilities are decent and the breakfast was pretty good. The quality just isn't quite up to what you find in a lot of other Hilton properties in major cities like Cape Town, things felt a little tired. I...

The hotel was very clean and attractive. Transportation was good, but times were a bit restrictive. Location was not far from VA waterfront, only a 5 minute drive. Very helpful with coordinating daily trips/excursions. Loved the executive lounge for breakfast and happy hour. The pool and bar was a great environment. The hotel treated my new wife and myself very...

Rooms were beautiful and the staff were very attentive. Breakfast each morning was great. The location was very good and there was a shuttle bus to the Waterfront. The concierge spent a great deal of time confirming our transfer to the airport. He was very patient. Air temperature was good in the room. No alcohol in two of the restaurants...
