Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside
If convenience is a factor during your stay in Whistler, you can’t do much better than Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside, the closest to both Whistler Mountain’s Fitzsimmons Express chairlift and Blackcomb’s Excalibur gondola. And even if ski-in, ski-out isn’t your biggest consideration, the lodge’s location in Whistler Village means it’s a short walk to the village’s shopping and restaurants (including Bearfoot Bistro and Araxi, both excellent choices). On-site, there’s the boisterous and popular Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub & Patio for hearty Gaelic fare like steak-and-Guinness pie as well as live music most nights. All suites feature a full kitchen, a living area with queen-size sofa bed, a gas fireplace, and a small balcony with either village or mountain views. The heated saltwater pool and two whirlpools are a relaxing way to take in the mountain views year-round.
