Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside opened December 1997 and this month celebrates its 20th birthday just in time for the ski season in Whistler – Happy 20th birthday!
I had the opportunity to stay at Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside with a friend during Whistler Cornucopia last month. It’s an all-suites hotel located in Whistler Village, where all rooms feature a small kitchen, dining area, and living room seating area with fireplace. Located next to the Whistler Blackcomb mountain lifts, this hotel offers ski-in ski-out access – ski out in the morning, ski back in for a nap or lunch. As well, it offers the convenience of Whistler Village at your footstep, with ample restaurants, coffee shops, and stores for you to stroll around if you aren’t into hitting the slopes this season.
For those who like to stay-in and make their own meals or want to be able to pack their own picnics, the kitchen in each room is equipped with everything you need – pots, pans, fridge, stove, kettle and more. You can swing by the Whistler IGA at the end of the Village to pick up groceries and stash them in your fridge for the week.
During our stay, we took advantage of the hotel’s fitness room, which is also equipped with an eucalyptus steam room. Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside also has an outdoor heated salt water pool and two hot whirlpools to soak in after a long day of skiing or shopping! Travel tip for early-birds – wake up early and get an early workout and soak in the whirlpool before you start your day – the fitness room and pools open at 6am each morning. It’s also best time to go as people are still usually asleep and you get the whirlpool to yourself while enjoying the serene mountainside views.
