Accommodation

Whistler has a range of accommodations for visitors. There are 25 hotels and many other types of properties, including townhomes, condos, B&Bs and chalets.

Many self-catering properties offer a service that lets you pre-place a grocery order so that your cupboards and refrigerator are well-stocked before you arrive!

As well as offering ski and snowboard storage facilities in winter, many Whistler properties also offer bike storage facilities or a bike concierge in summer due, to the popularity of mountain biking in and around Whistler.  

For those seeking a longer stay, whether in winter or summer, Whistler has wide range of multi-room condo options that offer full kitchen and laundry facilities, hot tubs, fireplaces, storage facilities and home entertainment systems.
