Good location but had some unfortunate hiccups We booked this past weekend for a 50th birthday surprise. The location is quite good as it is quite close to many places to eat and shop in the Upper Village as well as a 12 minute walk to the Main Village. We arrived right around 4pm which is when we were allowed to access the place. Finding the unit was easy and access to the parking spot was good too. Upon entering the unit we found the inside temperature to be very hot so tried to lower the thermostat as it read 26 degrees. We had to leave the door to the unit open while we tried to get it cooled down. We were not having any success with the programmable thermostat so called the phone number provided in an attempt to have it cooled down for comfort. The person on the phone took our information and advised that the owner would call us. We also reported that there were a couple of red spots on the carpet which appeared to look like blood, paint chips in the drywall, dirt on the drywall in a few area and a broken toilet paper roll holder (we didnt want to get blamed for this). We decided to go out for something to eat while we waited for the owner to call us. We got back to the very warm unit at 8pm and had still not received a phone call from the owner. We left the door open again and tried to call the provided number again and were told they would forward our info on to the owner for the second time. There were a couple of fans in the closet provided for summer weather (outside temp was only 17 degrees while inside temp was still between 24.5-26 degrees) so we tried to turn the large on one. It did not work so we plugged the small fan in and used that to circulate the warm air in the room. We all went to bed at 9pm as we worked that day then drove up from Vancouver so were tired. At around 9:45pm the doorbell rang which woke us from deep sleep. When we went to the door there was nobody there. The phone on the unit then rang and it was the person who takes care of the unit, we met him at the door and let him in. He looked around but appeared to not know how to use the thermostat either and claimed that it probably isn't accurate and that it was not warm inside the unit. He told us we were probably getting used to the different climate (note that we are from Vancouver). He checked the heat by touching the thermostat (not sure what the purpose of that is since heat does not come out of the thermostat) and commented that it was cold. He told us to just use the fans and when we told him one was broken he said he would replace it. We told him it would be better to just turn the heat off or change the thermostat he kept mentioning that he would just get us another fan. We were still out of it from being awoken from deep sleeps so told him just to go since we were not getting anywhere with the thermostat situation and wanted to sleep. We also mentioned the red spots on the floor and the dirt on the walls and also asked why it took nearly 6 hours to respond to our original call. He left and we tried to get back to sleep which took well over an hour as we were very frustrated at the interaction. After an uncomfortable sleep due to the room temp, we had did a bit of checking out the Village but ended up leaving early afternoon the next day instead of staying the second night that we had paid for since we could not get the heat issue resolved and chose not to have to argue again with the person we had dealt with the night before. This could have been a great trip and stay but was so unfortunate due to the unacceptable temperature and deficienies in the unit, as well as the difficulty dealing with the guy who takes care of the unit. Sadly the 50th birthday stay was far less than we had hoped for.…
We made this reservation totally last minute (as in I was on my connecting flight to Whistler and didn't have a place to stay.) We stayed in more a "condo" than a townhouse. It was on the first floor, which is great for dragging stuff up off the road. It is nice for a family --- separate bedroom (although I think the bed was a double, not queen or king. That should be upgraded). Fold out couch worked great for kids. Full kitchen, mostly equipped with what you need. Washer/dryer IN unit with a little box of detergent included which was GREAT. Particularly for drying wet ski stuff. Lovely gas fireplace. "Mudroom" area at entrance with separate door and heater so your ski stuff has storage and stays relatively warm. One bathroom. Outside but heated hot tub with very clean bathrooms in center of condo area. Locked but you are given key. Location is about a block and a half from marketplace. About a block from a bus stop. If you have kids, DO NOT attempt to walk this with all your ski stuff. Too hard. Even to the bus stop (unless your kids are teenagers). The bus is a little.... it's supposed to come every 15 minutes. I guess it depends on the crowd, as the first day we waited 30. The bus schedule is also hard to read and you need to know it in order to get back to the Symphony using the right bus stop at Whistler. It is free though. You can easily walk through Marketplace up through to the main Village without ski stuff. NOTE: The Symphony has no lobby. You can't check in or check out there. It's a bus ride away (and not a short one -- like a half hour -- to the Aspen). This is the main downfall. Of course the Aspen is your front desk, but they are not close. So if you need something it's not a quick trip for you or them. SO -- we didn't always have the towels (like for hot tub) that we wanted, or bathroom towels, or soap, etc. Also sometimes hard to get through to them on phone. For example, they weren't good about explaining where "the common areas" were - trash/recycling, hot tub, etc. We figured it out, but it would have been nice to have a dedicated person. You also need to return the key at check out -- but given check out is so far away.... it would be good to have a key box on site at the Symphony or have someone collect them the night before if you have an early check out. All in all, would stay again. …
Excellent apartment, ground level, handy to everything, close to the village, short walk to IGA. Apartment has kitchen, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer, dvd player, free wifi, everything you need. Very quiet. Mid 30 degrees but apartment wasn't hot at all. Housekeeping came every few days. Kitchen filled with everything you need, dishwasher, large fridge, microwave, pots, bowls, dishes. Check in at Aspens was quick and easy. Communication excellent, very quick to answer emails, staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend it, good value
We booked for a three night stay online that presented real savings and big value. While the booking process is a bit onerous (paid in full), $500 damage deposit, late check-in (4 PM) …..it was all OK. This was our first “condo type” property stay. We got this pre reserved perfect little studio (# 28) for 2 with all the typical hotel amenities. Exactly like the pictures as published, with fireplace, TV, double bed, full kitchen etc. We got an early check in by 2 PM and even a late check out to 1200 PM. This property has great location to all of Whistler Village. Just 5 minutes away from everything (fine dining to liquor stores & grocery stores to lot of shops). Just steps away from the front door was the outdoor hot tub and easy access to garage parking. CONDO FEATURES Free Internet that is robust (with security sign in) Free Global Telephone calling (Can you believe it?) Free secure underground parking which is about $30/night saving. Full kitchen, multi channel TV and fireplace Easy check in at the Chamois Hotel reception for processing Plus just plain comphy SUGGESTIONS TO DO Walk & explore the village to get a feel of the shops from biking/ski to cloths to dining Nature walks around Lost Lake, Alta Lake to Alpha Lake or up Blackcomb Amazing paved paths all over the village for biking, roller blading, skate boarding or ….walking New village features include zip lining, to a huge kids area with lots of fun stuff Of course take the lift (& Peak to Peak) to bike down the LONG hill or just explore the peaks sighseeing Have a great Whistler Vacation Safe travels. Hope this update helps? Mike PS For American visitors most businesses are offer the major currency exchange of US to CDN.…
We just stayed in suite #9 and overall it was ok. I would definitely recommend this suite for during the winter time but would hesitate to recommend it during the summer. The sole reason for this is that it was very hot, in the 30's and there is no air conditioning and almost impossible to sleep with not being able to open the windows due to the unit being right beside a busy and loud road. Other than that the unit is nicely laid out and has everything else you need, except air conditioning. Good location. If you have a bigger vehicle the parking space provided will not work for you.
