Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside

$$$$ | 4320 Sundial Crescent, BC, V0N 1B4, Canada
With the very lively Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub on the premises, this hotel tends to attract the active set, most of whom seem to spend their time on the large deck cheering on skiers as they reach the bottom of the slope. The very comfortable studio, one-, and two-bedroom suites are all self-contained, self-catering units with extra pull-out beds or sleeper sofas so you always can fit one or two more people. Its sister property, Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre, may not be "on" the gondola (as locals say), but it's central, and a more boutiquey alternative.

Pros

  • About as close to the ski lift as you can get
  • On-site pub at your door
  • Outdoor pool and hot tubs

Cons

  • Gets booked up quickly
  • Common areas can get noisy
  • Pricey parking
