The Listel Hotel (Whistler, BC)
If you’ve read my blog for long enough, you’ll definitely know that I am a big fan of boutique hotels. While I love larger, chain-style hotels, I have a soft spot for boutique hotel. I have profiled a few on my blog.
The Listel Hotel Whistler joins the ranks of other boutique hotels that I love, like the Victorian Hotel (Vancouver, BC), the Sidney Pier Hotel (Sidney, BC), the Dorchester Best Western Hotel (Nanaimo, BC), to mention just a few.
Located in the heart of Whistler Village in southern British Columbia, The Listel Hotel Whistler offers convenient access to a variety of outdoor activities, local restaurants and businesses. Each spacious and well-appointed guest room at this full-service Whistler hotel feature cable satellite television along with high-speed Internet access. Enjoy a delicious meal at the award-winning onsite restaurant and be sure to take advantage of the hotel’s array of amenities including our whirlpool, saunas, business services and meeting/banquet facilities accommodating up to 75 guests. Small pets are welcome.
We stayed at the Listel Hotel Whistler this past weekend as we were travelling and checking out what to do in Whistler when you’re not a sports person (turns out, there’s A LOT to do!). While the Listel Hotel Whistler has a relatively late check-in policy (4:00pm), it also offers flexibility for check-out (we did indeed check out at noon). I’ll fully confess that I’m used to having hotels give me my room when I arrive, even if it’s much earlier than the check-in time. This is a degree of flexibility that I’ve grown accustomed to. But when we arrived to the Listel Hotel Whistler, we were told that our room wasn’t ready and we had to come back. So there went our nap plans.
Our room (a Deluxe Queen/Queen Suite) was spacious and really comfortable. We really didn’t make use of the refrigerator and other amenities like the coffee and tea facility, but we definitely used the wireless (which on the first day was slightly spotty but in the end worked perfectly fine). You’ll need a password that Front Desk will provide.
While the Listel Hotel Whistler has whirlpool and saunas, we didn’t really have the time to make use of them. But one thing that is amazing at this hotel and that we should have taken advantage of is the Bearfoot Bistro, the hotel housed in the Listel. I’ve been told that Bearfoot Bistro is one of the best restaurants in Whistler and even though we had it in our own hotel, we never set foot there. Next time for sure!
The Listel Hotel Whistler is located at 4121 Village Green, in Whistler, British Columbia. It’s really accessible by car and even close by (walking distance) from the bus depot if you take the Greyhound into the Whistler Village. Like the Victorian Hotel, the Listel Hotel Whistler offers complimentary Continental breakfast, of which we took advantage both days as we had to head out and do ziplining and other activities. Overall, a very nice experience. And you can reserve rooms here (I think the price hovers around $179)
Disclosure: My 2 nights stay at the Listel Hotel Whistler in Whistler, BC was sponsored very generously by the hotel as part of my recent trip to Whistler to check out what to do when you’re not a winter sports person. However, I covered every other single expense I incurred during this travel, including (but not limited to) breakfast, lunch, dinner and transportation (except when explicitly indicated). I wasn’t paid to write this review, nor was I required to do so either. The purpose of this blog entry is just to describe and document my experience at the hotel. In any review I write or publish on my site, I retain editorial control at all times. Should you have any questions/concern feel free to contact me via e-mail through my contact form.
