Historical Traveller Reviews of Nita Lake Lodge Hotel

I would not stay here again

from Wanderlust_Bee
This is a new hotel in Whistler, three miles south of the village. The hotel is not finished and still working out the kinks. Our biggest complaint is the bed; very uncomfortable platform bed, the sheets don't fit hence you wake up w/ a wad of sheet & mattress pad.
We are very low maintenance travelers, but they did not have what was promised (listed on the website): we had to ask for robes, parking was more $ than listed & the worst view in the place.
We were there for the first warm weekend of the year (80F/27C), for the first night with our window closed the room never got below 74F/23C. This could be a problem during the summer.
The room was decorated nice and the mini-kitchen was great, but it was too dark (not enough lights). The TV sound system w/ universal remote needs help, many channels listed could not be accessed, could not adjust vol w/ the remote & the TV color was terrible.

Great hotel

from RSinNL
We stayed in the Nita lake lodge after booking via Hotwire. The hotel is very good. It opened only a few months ago, parts of the exterior and the spa services weren't ready yet. However we payed a nice price for it via hotwire so we don't have anything to complain.
The hotel is situated next to a lake. It is about a 45 minutes walk to whistler village or 10 minutes by shuttle. There's a free shuttle available.

The rooms are very good, large flatscreen tv, fire place, large bathtub / shower. Small kitchen available also.

The restaurant is good, but exclusive and as result rather pricy.

Possible improvements:
Increase room service menu (add more choices of food)

t wait to go back

from LoloSF
Just got back from Whistler yesterday, and wish I was still there enjoying Nita Lake lodge. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious, and the bathroom is the biggest I have ever seen in a hotel. I loved the large soaker tub and separate shower. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel sit on a body of water, and it was so reaxing sipping a cocktail watching the sun go down over the water. Loved it here! Plus it is only about 3 miles away from the jammed pack Whistler Village. I will definitely stay here again.

What a great find!

from salleeanndevon
We stayed here for 3 nights 25-28th March in a one bed room suite. It was fabulous. The staff could not do enough for us, our picture window in the lounge looked out over the frozen lake. The accommodation we found to be excellent. Huge bathroom with underfllor slate tiled heating, enourmous soaker bath with wooden shutters opening into bedroom with view out of french windowns to balcony and lake beyond. Useful touches such as ipod dock in radio alsrm clock, microwave/kitchinette area etc.

We really enjoyed the location and were thankful to not be in the main village as it looked rather 'artificial' to us. We didn't miss the apres ski etc as we found the bar in the hotel to be wonderful as were the always attentive bar staff. We ate one meal in the fine dinning restaurant as it was my husbands birthday, great service again but would probably not eat there again as we are vegetarians and the menu choice was limited although the staff did bend over backwards to accommodate us.

There is a car service that takes you into the village we didn't use this as there is a lovely walk which begins from outside the rear of the hotel and takes you around the edge of the lake, its about 3km and took us about 40mins.

I should say that we are not skiers so we were more than happy to be away from the concentration of people in the village, we enjoyed the scenery and tranquility of the location. There are some good bars and restaurants aound creekside and if you do walk into 'the village' its easy enough to get the Creekside bus back for $1.50.

Good, but with a few issues

from tvegas
Stayed here for a weekend at the 'opening rate' special of $199/nt for a studio.

Good - Rooms a fair size for a studio, with useful amenities like a small 'fridge, microwave, coffee press and an ipod compatible radio/alarm clock.
-Bathrooms are lovely, great shower, heated flooring, giant tub.
-Small seating area, comfy and snug infront of the fire.
-Staff friendly and keen to deliver good service.
-Shuttle to Whistler village or anywhere in the immediate area. A luxury Toyota, the longest we had to wait for a lift was only 20 minutes. Lots of guests use this service as the lodge is 5km away from the main resort and if you do not have a car, walking is not an option - no pavements. That or the bus.
-The main bar area is very nicely done - big comfortable chairs, a huge 2 sided fireplace and a view overlooking the lake. Barfood tasty and service excellent.
-Free internet access, a retractable cable is provided in the room.
-The hotel is right next to one of the 'Mountaineer ' train stations, which will be very convenient during the summer months if travelling by train.
-Great access via the gondola onto Whistler mountain. Ski back down to Creekside village via the Peak to Creek, a thigh burning 5.5km trail.

Not so good - I stayed in a room which had a connecting door. The people staying in the neighbouring room were not very noisy at all, but could still hear them quite clearly conversing when near the door.
-The furniture whilst nice and new as the property has only recently opened, was already looking a little worn in our studio. Chips out of the wardrobe and sink surrounds and also the drawers had been removed. Also, whilst it is nice to bring your pet on holiday, I agree with another reviewer that this may spoil the rooms if not well maintained.
- While it is nice to be in a quieter area, Creekside is a bit of a sad cousin of Whistler-Blackcomb. Vacant stores in the main shopping area and the open stores themselves are very limited. It is obvious that the money has not been spent in Creekside in comparison to the other two areas.

Overall a good property at a good price.

The Spa is due to open at the end of May we are told, which sounds as though it will be a fabulous addition to the hotel.

Nita Lake Lodge was a luxurious experience at good price (for now)

from Doors2Manual
I had a long weekend in Whistler to visit friends who were staying in Whistler village and found the Nita Lake Lodge which was considerably cheaper than most comparable alternatives in Whistler (Nita was $190 which is not cheap but turned out to be great value in my mind and was better than the $400 I was being quoted elsewhere). The hotel is brand new - in fact stage two is still under construction - is beautiful inside with lots of wood and stone and the rooms are finished to very high standard. The studio I stayed in (room 226) was as big as many double rooms I have been in and was well finished with expensive furniture in the room, a big bath, strong and hot shower with waterfall head and great soaps, shampoos, etc. There's a slightly weird mini kitchen thing in a wardrobe with microwave, kettle etc but that may be useful to some people. Clearly pitched at high end of market I heard from locals that prices are expected to go up when all is finished. There is meant to be a rail link with Vancouver happening which will have a stop near the hotel by the Winter Olympics in 2010 - wasn't able to verify much about that. Construction on part 2 of hotel due to be complete by summer. I didn't hear any noise - I think they have completed the big work and now just finishing interiors. Pluses were: very helpful and friendly staff, shuttle on call until 10pm to take you to Whistler and local bars and restaurants, very pleasant bar and restaurant with big fireplace, free wi-fi in lobby (but not in room which was annoying), 30% off ski hire in ski store across road, free lockers beside Creekside gondola so you can store your stuff there and not have to drag back to hotel and just general feeling of being in a well designed and luxurious environment. Concierge booked dinner and arranged coach trip back to Vancouver as promised and no hitches or surprises. It will also be stunning in summer I think because right on edge of the lake - at the moment its just a big snow and ice covered flat. Downsides to be aware of are that hotel not yet at full capacity (spa not open yet, gardens being finished but these did not matter to me) and the fact that you're not in Whistler village if that is important. Again I just arranged to meet my friends at the top of the mountain in the morning and at night shuttle took me to Whistler village and a $10 dollar taxi got me back. I even liked that it was bit quieter but then maybe I'm just getting old! I would go again without hesitation.

Nita Lake - loved this place and will go again

from Wetcoaster9
Just got back from 2 nights and were extremely happy that we chose this place. Booked last minute directly with the hotel (the website did not have the same options, so I'm glad we called them). $199 per night for a studio mountain view. They are still working on the hotel, but we never heard a thing. The finishing in this place is really beautiful with all the wood. The bathrooms are HUGE and we loved the really large glassed in shower and the heated floor.

The bar is great with a big fireplace and couches to sit nearby. I think the prices will go up once the hotel is complete, but we'd definitely stay there again.

Exceptional place to stay

from Yorkshirebloke
Just got back from a 10 day break, staying at the Nita Lake Lodge.
I wasn't made aware at the time of booking, but the place had not opened, and had only been open three weeks when we arrived. They were still working on the far end of the lodge the whole time we were there, although you hardly ever heard any noise from the builders, but you did see an awful lot of them around the place, still not enough to put me off.
Three of us stayed in a two bedroom suite, while the upstairs bedroom was very spacious, with a shower you could have fit six people in with ease, the downstairs bedroom was medium sized, but not cramped by any means, but it did not have a door to close it off and add a little more privacy, as there were three adults. If the downstairs bathroom had been any deeper, it would have had to have it's own lifeguard, there were louvre shutters that opened across the bedroom with a fantastic view straight across the lake.
The downstairs bedroom lead onto the balcony, or in winter, the extra large refrigerator. We were expecting a little more from the kitchenette, but it was barely big enough to make toast for breakfast, it consisted of a kettle, toaster, French press, microwave, sink and a 3 foot high fridge, all this in the space of one wardrobe. The living area was a little on the compact side too, with only enough seating for 4 people in a suite that sleeps 6, and the 42" LCD TV set too high in my opinion, (around 6 foot) to view properly from 4 feet away. There is high speed wired internet access in the rooms, and what I thought was a really good addition, was an ipod dock, there's also WiFi connection in the lobby area, although I could not get my mobile phone or ipod to connect.
All very minor gripes really, but if a bit more thought had gone into planning, this place could have been nigh on perfect.
I didn't notice what facilities they had for business users, but i guess that's not what you go to Whistler for, is it.
There is a complementary shuttle service that Nita Lake provide to take it's residents to and from anywhere in Whistler, it's offered on a first come first served basis and operates till 10pm every night.
They offer a dry cleaning pick up and delivery service, and for people who want to do their own washing, there is a laundry area on the parking level, just make sure you have have plenty of Dollars or Quarters as there's nowhere to get change except reception or JC's Deli. JC's Deli by the way is a great place to sit and have a breakfast sandwich and a coffee at reasonable prices.
The overall feel of the lodge was quality, amazing use of wood, gave it that log cabin feel, coupled with contemporary furnishings and paintwork, worked well together.
The staff were fantastic, especially Becky, very pleasant, polite and helpful, and made you feel like you were the only ones there.

I was told by reception staff that Nita Lake Lodge has a pet friendly policy allowing pets in the suites, and judging by some reviews on this site about dog hairs and carpet stains at other Whistler hotels with the same policy , in my view, this policy has the potential to spoil a gorgeous hotel.

I will be reading reviews about Nita Lake before booking again, but for now this place is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Nita Lake Lodge studio room

from pjpaschal
My wife and I recently staying in Nita Lake Lodge and let me tell you it’s a VERY NICE place to stay. The facility is brand spanking new, and they are still working the kinks out of the place. Interior finish out is still taking place but honestly it looked 90% finished. Our Studio room was fitted with a Samsung 42” LCD TV, HD Cable, a bath tub big enough for three, shower made for four, heated slate floors granite top cabinets, fire place, fresh ground coffee, a French press, toaster, small fridge, and kitchen sink, clock/ipod dock radio w/ remote, black out curtains. There is a Deli to get fresh waffles for $12 in the morning and a top notch restaurant and bar at the lodge. They offer complementary shuttle to where ever you want to go in town. The staff of the Nita Lake are outstanding they are Nita Lake Lodge. Only complaints about the room, the heating in the hotel works too well and very little storage for clothing or bags.

new lodge in creekside

from Polarwanderer
nita is a great new lodge in the creekside area of whistler, a few miles south of the main town and two blocks from the whistler creekside lift. The lodge rooms are quite large. I stayed in a one bedroom suite, they all have a view of the moutain or nita lake. i liked staying here over whistler, quieter nicer feel. this is a good place for a romantic getaway. i like it better than staying in the village with the noisy drunken crowd at night. the lobby lounge overlooking the lake is cozy and a good place for a drink after a day of skiing.

Top Local Tips for Whistler

Stay in the Village Stay right in the village...it's worth it to be close to everything.

Paying for parking The hotels charge for parking (about C$15) and may have free shuttles. At peak season parking may be hard to come by.

Can-ski bike rentals you can rent SUPER nice mountain bikes for only $10/hr. You also get a helmet. There are tons of trails so this is great for any level biker! Also, we biked for an hour & 15 minutes and Can-ski only charged us for one hour - they were great!
