First off, Resort Quest publishes lovely photos of it’s rooms on the general Whistler-Blackmon Booking site, but Resort Quest does not assign your actual room until a day before. At least that what customer service on the general booking website tells me. Thinking we had a courtyard view with updated decor, our first room was a dingy, outdated first floor unit facing the car park - noisy all night with late arrivals and cars “beeping” to make sure they were locked. We couldn’t really look outside because the blinds were broken. The front desk was friendly and agreed to move us to an exterior unit that, quote, “faces the Fairmont”. In reality it just faces the trees. But this unit is even worse: - Equally old and outdated. Depressing decor. - Large brown water stain above the kitchen. - about 5 feet in length - Two of the 1980s “track lights” were burnt out. Required Very Nice Maintence Guy to replace the entire light units. - Missing dishes and cookwear.Very Nice Maintenance Guy appologized for not having enough. Said there was nothing available in the whole property. - Upon check-in, a spoon was lodged in the disposal. Had to dig that out. - Moldy food found in the cabinet above fridge. Maintenance Guy removed that too. - 1980s Electric oven overheats - burns food. - Not a King bed. Two twins pushed together - No TV in bedroom. - Pull-out sofa is almost unsleepable. - Can’t stress enough the out-dated, 1-star depressing decor and appliances. We’ve been visiting Whistler for 15 years with an average of 2 trips per year. This is by far the most disappointing visit ever. Will never book with Resortt Quest again. There are more direct says to get the unit you “think” you paid for.
Recently and well renovated one bed condo with ample storage and lots of hooks - a bonus! Adequate cooking equipment (though the cooking utensils need replacing) and dishes, nice new large and small appliances. Love the marble counters in the kitchen and bath. Good internet and Netflix-enabled TV, just log in. 204 overlooks the courtyard, yet feels quite private, and has a small BBQ on the balcony. Blackcomb Peaks services the apartment - they are great, very responsive, our kettle didn't work, we asked for a replacement through the app and within an hour they brought another. We love that you just let yourself in keypad code whenever you arrive (so long as it's after 4, though we requested an early checkin which they were able to accommodate and responded via the app very quickly). Would happily stay here again!
Can’t fault the location. At the bottom of Blackcomb run you can easily walk to Blackcomb base and then an extra 10min into Whistler, or catch a bus (but the walk is nicer!). Ski in ski out on the best of the 2 mountains in our opinion. Rooms large and well equipped. Bed linen was clean and of good quality. Surprisingly everything you need to cook was in the kitchen. Lovely little balcony overlooking Forrest. $5 for a wash and dry for your clothes is very reasonable. The reason we give a 4/5 is because it sounds like an elephant highway. The construction must be timber based so you hear everyone stomping in their ski boots to and from their room- starting at 7.30am. You also get the noise from floor above you with the stomping. If you have a room near the lift this would be the worst for traffic.
I'll start with the best- great ski in/ out location and an attractive building from the outside. We have stayed at 6 condos on snow in the US and Canada and this was definitely below par and the worst for us. We stayed on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool/spa area.It was very noisy. Our appartments didn't have any temperature control and was always ridiculously hot and opening the door to the outside Just increased the noise level a few notches. The apartment was a dated two bedroom and was small and pokey. With No drawers to unpack suitcases, we had to put them on the floor and had no room to even walk between the bed and the suitcase. I would not recommend at all. There are plenty of accommodation choices at Blackcombe!
Conveniently located ski in/ ski out accomodation. Well appointed self service apartment (excellent kitchen) , outdoor heated pool and 3 spas, ski valet service provided.Only a short walk to Blackcomb restaurants and shops and a 10 minute walk to Whistler village for more dining options. As a skier who hates carrying skis for any distance , this location was ideal , just walk out the gate and ski straight to main lift, and home run right back to the gate .Highly recommend👍
We had 10 days at Aspens - 5 in apartment 207 and 5 in 426: this review relates to the second apartment. Given the standard of the first apartment - 207 - we had a reasonable expectation that the second would be the same - it wasn’t even close. 426 had same layout but is badly in need of the owners spending some money on a renovation. The apartment stunk of greasy food and despite the cleaning staff using an ioniser and is leaving the balcony door slightly ajar 24hrs a day, the smell never really left. The kitchen roof (picture below) perhaps explains why. The kitchen and bathroom are old. The curtain rail has rust on it (pic below). The duvet was the wrong size for the king bed which meant either my wife or I woke up cold! Apartment 207 had been renovated and was fantastic. A little noisy perhaps early evening as it was just above the outdoor spa but that is to be expected. Aspens more generally was a great location for our family of 4. We enjoyed the 15 minute walk into Whistler village and the ski in and out aspect was fantastic. The ski valet service was good - even at peak hour the staff of 3 worked hard to get through the queue quickly. The outdoor hot tub and pool were a good facility. Reception was helpful and efficient. I think the issue is that the apartments are now very variable and based on our experience guests need to be careful to get one that is not tired and old.
We stayed in this lovely 1 bed self catering apartment. It was warm cosy and comfortable. Its in a fab location ski in and ski out and striding distance of the main and upper village with a free bus service every 10 mins outside the door. Would recommend for a couple of keen skiers who want a quiet ski break.
We stayed in a very nice two bedroom apartment. Clean, well equipped, quiet and cosy. Very practical with two baths. Great with ski in/out and Jacuzzi Short walk to restaurants and market. The ski rental and valet service was very good and knowledgeable. Special thanks to Ben, Luke and JP
One of the best located facilities for ski in-ski out accommodation in all of Whistler. This is not a hotel but apartment complex mostly owned and hired out by individuals through real estate property managers. For any issues there is basically no-one on site that will look after any problems and all contacts are made through the real estate you book with. The Aspens is at the Blackcomb base so a relatively flat 10 minute walk to main Whistler village. There are several retail shops and restaurants available at Blackcomb which would suffice for a short stay. Fully set up units with kitchen supplied with all tools you need. Not serviced so longer stays require additional payments if room cleaning is needed. The 2 bedroom we had was more than sufficient for 4 adults. Noise through ceilings was somewhat annoying from above guests at times. A heated pool and 3 spa's are on site and for guests use, but were often very crowded. For the Xmas price we paid at almost 900CAD per night we believe some sort of room servicing should be included, but overall enjoyed the stay and mostly the convenience to the ski lifts.
Our family came along way to visit our daughter who recently moved to Whistler for work We stayed at Aspens in a 1 bedroom suite, the suite was dirty and run down, we called two weeks prior to make sure the heated pool and hot tubs were going to be up and running and were told yes they would be, otherwise we would’ve booked somewhere else. We arrived and of course the pool was not running, i was extremely upset and tried to talk to the women at the front desk who was very rude and would not give us the time or day! Just said well you didn’t talk to us, ummmm yes we did!! Also parking on the website says $15 a day, we arrived and were told $56 for two nights, and had to park down the hill and carry a infant to and from anytime we wanted to drive somewhere, it ended being one thing after another that made our stay very disappointing. Whistler is supposed to be known for their great customer service not the kind of service that we got for the price we paid. I have to say we won’t be back for a very long time to visit our daughter after the experience we had this past November long weekend.
