Nice hot tub, great beds, top equipment in the kitchen. everything you need is there. Perfect and the money totally worth! Free parking, very close to everything. Our apartment was huge and we had a lot of space
My partner and I stayed here in Jan for some snowboarding and we were very surprised by the photos and what was our actual accomodation. When we first arrived we didn’t realise we had to go elsewhere to “check in” which was 2.5km away (@ the Aspen) with no way of getting there with our luggage that we were aware of given we were new to town. We then found out that there is a free shuttle bus filled with boarders and skiers. Luckily the owner of another set of units kindly took us, and allowed us to store our luggage with him. We ordered a “standard king room” which was two king singles pushed together in a shoe box with a bathroom. We tried to open a dividing door to another unit as we thought what we booked was bigger, however this was locked and just a small barrier between us and another apartment that liked to party and just walk around above and next to us. There was no amenities to actually make or cook our own food - not even a common area and had to buy our own Cutlery and glass bowls just to eat cereal. Ridiculous. No channels on the tv No front desk or local reception as this was co located at the Aspen. Services dropping off food and snow gear struggled to find our unit due to terrible numbering and visibility. We had to check in at the Aspen purely to receive a key to the garbage disposal area (we never used), fitness area (an old treadmill And elliptical), sauna and pool area. The doors are all coded and others who stayed here who are managed by other companies received their codes by email prior to arriving. The only thing going for this place is location and the internal heating.
The location of Glaciers Reach is faultless except there is no direct drop off in front of the units so if you are being dropped off you will have a long walk depending on where your unit is located The service is good if you need anything from the reception during office hours
booking was a breeze, they offered after hours check in and check out. However, it was a bit difficult to find the unit because it was on the back side and the numbering system was not linear or easy to figure out (its actually kind of random). However there are signs posted and in the car park (sublevel), there are sings near the door indicating which units they exit to. The guest services manager was very kind and informative, so just ask questions. Be sure you get directions from the carpark (offers free parking which is rare in Whistler) to your rooms, ask about check in and check out process. We had a bit of confusion because a security guard had to check us in. But he was quite kind in the rain at 9:30 PM. So bonus for him. Be prepared to keep your unit clean, remove rubbish/trash to the main carpark bin before you leave, and essentially leave the place how you found it. Other than that it was a warm and welcome stay. You aren't bothered and you can enjoy whistler. It is very close to the market place for supplies, food, spirits, and entry to the village. Offers hot tubs in unit or outside on private patio, a pool and common area w/ full kitchens in each unit with washer and dryer. Check it out! Oh, and repeat bookings get a 10% discount.
We rented this Townhouse 100 Glacier Reach to be near the Olympic Park & my daughter, who was in the Ironman Triathlon. The location was perfect. We didn't use our car for 4 days. Underground parking was nice. Unfortunately the add didn't inform us that there were many stairs- about 15 up to the living area & kitchen, then 15 more up to the bedroom. Very nicely furnished , well stocked kitchen with necessary tools. Great Hot tub private on the balcony outside the bedroom. Outdoor pool in the courtyard was small, but looked clean. No issues. No problems with noise. Just be prepared for the Stairs. Price avg ~$300 per night for a resort in high summer season.
This condo is in a great location, just 2 minutes from the Marketplace and access to the village. It’s easy to get to from the highway, and is perfectly located for accessing the valley trail. When we arrived we parked in guest parking as instructed and walked to the condo. We spent a while looking for the parking pass that was mentioned in the check-in email, but gave up after 5 minutes of searching. We grabbed the only key that we saw and hoped it was for the garage, as the tag was missing from the key fob. The check-in email is a little contradictory as in one paragraph you’re told to park anywhere, and then when you continue to read you’re told to park in bay 19. We ended up writing a handwritten note, in lieu of the parking pass, and checked on our car on a daily basis to ensure we hadn’t been towed, as this is what the email says will happen if we don’t show the (non-existent) pass in our car. At first glance the condo looks good, and it has a fair amount of space, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 deck areas, one of which has a great hot tub, which leads of off the master bedroom. The first time we used the hot tub we noticed that it had far too much chlorine in it, however this subsided as time went on. The master bedroom is a good size, with a huge closet, however it has drawers full of stuff, such as light bulbs, bed linen, etc. I think that the closest should be for guest use, not for storage of items. At least 50% of drawer storage was lost. We didn’t use the second bedroom as there was only 2 of us, but it was a good size with its own balcony. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery. On closer inspection, we noticed a few things, that although didn’t impact on our vacation, showed a lack of attention by the cleaning staff: The air conditioning filter was thick with fluff There were quite a few hairs in both bathrooms Shelves and window sills were dusty The outside furniture & BBQ (which we didn’t use) were covered in dust. There was no rinse aid or dishwasher tablets provided for the dishwasher. Overall, we had a great stay in this condo, which we booked via Allura Direct, and would have no hesitation staying here again.
Terrible! All the units are rented to young people! Super noisy! The quiet time start at 11pm but they don't even have security and the Resort Quest front desk does not care about it. They just said call the police. Really? Thank you for the worst time ever!
The best place we have stayed in Canada so far. Close to town, nice and quite, everything you could possibly want. Cosey, comfortable, great spa, full kitchen and laundry. I really cant fault the place and im picky. My only thing would be new towels as some had marks on them and the bathroom fan makes funny loud noises, having said that though this place was awesome. Really happy with our stay here and would stay again in a heartbeat. Comfy beds also. The cupboards were stocked with oil and cooking stuff to make your stay better so we left our groceries also. This place was amazing and we loved our stay. Yes it was a bit dated but it was really great. We came off a 14 hour flight and arrived early. The door wouldnt open but after a call they gave us another code to let us in to sleep.. Not having an onsight manager was a minus as we couldnt figure out parking and get a ticket but the rest was great.
There are a few companies looking after these apartments. We didn't have any instructions on how to access these apartments. Have to call the agent for information. That was a let down. No doubt it was near the village where food and drinks are easily accessible, I really don't think the rooms rates are justified. The place is dated but clean. Some of the things are not working especially the lights. It was pretty dim. The pots and pans were not well cleaned too. It definitely doesn't deserve a good rating.
The positives - it's in Whistler. The negatives - everything else. Check in is in a different location. Parking is $15/night. Layout is completely illogical and takes an age to find your unit. Units are totally unsoundproofed. Complex is unmanaged. Our first night we were awoken by several drunk people stumbling back and shouting at each other. The second night there was a party in the unit above us. We called the hotel just after 10 and as they made a big song and dance about us acknowledging the no noise after 10pm policy we thought their response of "we tend to give them 10minutes grace to finish up" and "I'm sure they'll finish soon" a bit uninspiring. Sure enough they didn't and we called again, they said they'd send someone down. Not sure if they did but the party seemed to leave about 10:45 and we fell asleep. However, they returned at 3am and didn't stop until 7am. We heard every song, every cheer, everytime someone fell over (sounded pretty sore too) and we're pretty sure someone urinated outside our front door too. Staff at the Aspen seemed unable to do anything and cited the lack of onsite management as one factor. We asked to be moved on our last night to somewhere with onsite management but at that point we'd already had our two days skiing and with two bad nights sleep it wasn't the best start for our first experience of Whistler. I would never stay here again and would be reluctant to book through Whistler vacations again.
