The view from our room at Summit Lodge Whistler

Summit Lodge Boutique Hotel is located right in the heart of downtown Whistler. We found it the perfect location for exploring the area. You can park in the underground car park. Unfortunately, it’s not free. However, we couldn’t find anywhere in Whistler that offered free parking so it’s just one of those things. We paid CAD$21 per day for parking. They give you a token so you can go in and out as much as you like.

Queen Studio

Queen Suite

We stayed in a Queen Studio which is the smallest and cheapest option but we found it comfortable and spacious. If you prefer more space then there are King Studios with a larger bed or even one-bedroom apartments which give you much more space.

I particularly liked the clean, fresh decor of the studio. It felt modern while still being cosy and comfortable. Our studio had a large flat screen tv on the wall opposite the bed but you could view it well from the sofa also.

You’ll see that there was also a fireplace which I’m sure would be most welcome in the winter months. Whistler is an all-year-round resort and I bet it’s cold during the ski season. We visited in September and it was cool outside but quite warm enough inside the room so we didn’t need to use the fire.

Cooking and Eating

One of my main reasons for booking a studio at the Summit Lodge Whistler was the cooking facilities. The kitchen and dining area in the Queen Studio is compact but it’s got everything you need for simple meals. I particularly appreciate having a fridge so we can keep water and milk for breakfast. After a long day walking and exploring we quite often want to relax in the evening rather than going out to eat and this gives us more options.

Seating Area
Seating Area

I thought it was particularly good to have the extra seating area in this room. It allowed us to spread out a bit when relaxing in the room and means you don’t always have to sit on the bed.


Of course, we also had a balcony to sit on. In summer I’m sure this is a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by but it was a bit chilly for that while we were there. I love having the balcony to get some fresh air though and of course, to take a few photos overlooking the town.



I always look at bathroom photos when I’m choosing a hotel so I like to mention the bathroom facilities when I do a review. As you can see in the photo above, it’s a pretty good-sized bath with shower over. Small and compact but perfectly functional and kept very clean and fresh. Toiletries were included so, all in all, a good bathroom.

Other facilities at the Summit Lodge Whistler

Outside, there is a pool and jacuzzi bath on a deck overlooking some trees. Even though it was quite chilly we did go down and use the pool and jacuzzi and they were nice and warm. This is one of the great things about hotels in ski areas, they really know how to heat their pools.

Summit Lodge Whistler also offers spa services although we didn’t try any of these and there is a sauna also.

Sometimes it’s the little touches that you remember and the excellent coffee that is freely available in the lobby is one of these. Also, the exceptionally friendly and helpful staff at reception.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Summit Lodge Whistler and I’d recommend it if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Whistler. I think the location is ideal and we found it very good value for money. Because, yes, we paid for our stay ourselves so this is a genuine customer review of the hotel.
