Sunday June 7th, booked into fabulous Club Intrawest for relaxing 6 days stay. Sat at the one functional pool in the afternoon on June 8th. Great location.....except for construction going on at adjoining property. Listened to worker running a gasoline powered tool about 30 to 50 feet away from our pool. Sounded very much like a chainsaw! However, i believe...

Dear William M, I want to personally thank you for sharing this particular situation with the Tripadvisor community. While this is a specific complaint more than a review, I agree with you that we did not handle it correctly, therefore the need to sign up to Tripadvisor. I sincerely apologize for the suggestion that you apparently got from one of...

This is my first night at this hotel, and my recommendation is to NOT stay anywhere near the kids pool if you are trying to be able to hear yourself think. I have 2 year old twins who are now being kept awake due to the constant screaming from the pool (which is open until 11pm) Also, no curtains whatsoever...

This is a very good vacation and gathering spot for friends. The lobby and rooms are modern and have a rustic look, that is comfortable and soothing. There is no need for a car.

Went during a down period in Whistler (April 27-May 2) when the resort had lots of availability. My family has membership to Club Intrawest so I'm no stranger to the flagship Whistler location. We stayed in a 1 bedroom for the 5 night adventure and enjoyed the comforts of home. I love the jetted tub and rainshower head, and the...

Personally we like the Blackcomb side of the resort when we want a quiet weekend. We lucked into an invitation from friends so we didn't pay anything. Being off season, there was a lot of construction. It didn't interfere too much except the adult pool was closed. Good for families because you have a small kitchen. Take the short stroll...

We enjoy this resort so much that we keep returning. In recent years, we have noticed several upgrades, the property and the rooms look in better shape year after year.

After years of trying to trade into a Whistler resort, we finally booked a week at Club Intrawest during the fringe season. We were not there for the skiing so we were happy to get it. The property itself is quite dated and a little tired, but the old girl still delivers on service and location. Walking distance to Whistler...
