It’s well-known that Whistler is the ultimate ski and snowboard destination, being the biggest in North America – and with so much terrain comes plenty of accommodation options.
From families to single people, basic hotel rooms all the way to three-bedroom penthouses, there’s something in Whistler to cater for every person and every budget, and sometimes it’s tough to know where exactly to lay your head at night for the best holiday.
If you’ve never been to Whistler, it’s a great idea to base yourself right in the village to get the lay of the land. It’s the most popular of the areas and close to lifts no matter where you stay; when you’re ready to discover something beyond the hotel, you’ll also find endless shops, restaurants, night life and après waiting for you outside your front door.
Check out our favourite options below, with our choices hand-picked to suit every kind of traveller – then contact us to discover more, including a personalised quote.
Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa
Perfect for couples or those who know they’ll be out and about in town most of the time. A five-minute walk from the main Whistler Ski Lift, as well as the Blackcomb Mountain Gondola, you’ll be in the heart of the village while also enjoying all the Hilton comforts. They offer a heated outdoor pool with whirlpool, a spa, and complementary ski and snowboard storage along with free Wi-Fi, a fitness centre and even pet-friendly rooms if you want to bring your four-legged friend along.
We love the flexibility of accommodation configurations and some cooking facilities perfect for families, as well as fireplaces to cosy up with the ones you love at the end of the day.

For those who want their holiday to be full of luxury, the Four Seasons is the dream. Whistler’s largest guest rooms, suites and residences can be found here, all with fireplaces and balconies. The super-chic rooms have to be seen to be believed, and there’s even a Ski Concierge to get you sorted with anything you need on the slopes – including rentals, lift passes and more.

Whistler Village Inn & Suites
Need to watch the budget? The savvy traveller will love Whistler Village Inn & Suites, which are still in the heart of the village yet offer more affordable options – including well-sized rooms and studios.
The rooms all have balconies and you also get access to the heated outdoor swimming pool, ready to go for a refreshing dip after the slopes.

And when it’s time for après, there’s no need to go far; there’s no less than five restaurants to choose from, ranging from casual to extraordinary and exquisite cuisine.
Pan Pacific Mountainside Hotel
For the traveller that wants the most memorable holiday experience, there’s no going past the Pan Pacific. There are two to choose from – the Pan Pacific Mountainside Hotel, and the Pan Pacific Whistler Village.
