We fancied a long weekend at Whistler and just booked the Crystal through Expedia. It's in a great location right in the village centre and close enough to fall into the gondola on a morning. On the notes there was a hypoallergenic linen option so we ticked it not really expecting anything. How wrong could we be!
We arrived on Thursday evening. Our skis, poles and snow board were taken away and we were told to park our car and our skis and board would be in the storage room and poles in our bedroom. Super service to start with. The room was fantastic. Split level, home from home, super clean and a great size with our poles in there waiting for us. Even though the room looked out on to one of the main streets in the village and the Telus festival was on it was pretty quiet in there. We met the lady who was cleaning our room in the morning. She checked with us as to what I was allergic to, explained what changes had been made to the room and we talked over the heating and air conditioning. She was just wonderful. Superb service.
Coming off the slopes we were met by just awesome members of staff who took our skis/board from us and put them safe into the storage room and who were then there to meet us again in the morning with our skis/board again.
The pool was freezing and the hot tub so full of people so we headed to the sauna. Great place to sweat and rest after a full day. Booking with the Crystal you also get discounts with loads of local restaurants and stores including 10% off in Quicksilver making it rude really not to go shopping.
We stayed at the Crystal 10 years ago. It is the first place we stayed in in Whistler and from now on it will be the only place we stay in in Whistler.
