With over 100 spots to choose from to rest your head in Whistler, finding the right accommodation for you can be tough, especially if you’ve never been to Whistler. Allow us to take you through some of the spectacular hotels in Whistler, Canada, ranging from your simple bed and bathroom to your luxury spa resorts. Use our guide to get an idea of rates in high versus low season and find the amenities you care about most. 

The best time to book is as early as possible, as hotels sell out fast. When putting together this piece, many hotels were already sold out on weekends. Rates you find here are before tax based on mid-week for a two-person occupancy, but many have sofa beds or options to add cots. 

One of the best things about Whistler is the proximity to the lifts, regardless of where you stay. With all of the following options, you are a mere ten-minute maximum walk from the lifts, and in many cases much shorter.

Where Will You Stay On Your Whistler Vacation?

Whistler is a luxurious resort and the prices reflect this. If these higher-than usual prices scare you, keep in mind, after peak ski season prices drop significantly. 

If you’re looking to save a few bucks, spring skiing is an epic experience as well. The best advice we locals can give is book early, look for packages (many hotels offer early-bird discounts as well as ski-and-stay packages) and plan. We guarantee it’s worth it.
