5 Good Reasons to Stay at the Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside!

After a two year hiatus from the Ski slopes (which is what a torn ACL will do to you!), I finally decided to get back on the horse and make the trip up to Whistler Mountain.

Pan Pacific Mountainside

Surprise surprise, I decided to check out our sister property the Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside and see what all the good fuss was about.

What started as a last minute one-night ski and stay with a few friends turned into the perfect little getaway as we conquered Whistler Mountain, went out on the town and had a chance to relax and unwind at the hotel. Instead of the usual run-down, I thought I’d summarize my first visit to the Hotel with 5 good reasons to stay at the Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside:

1. The Location

Being located in the heart of the Whistler Village has its perks!

Don’t enjoy lugging around heavy ski and board equipment when you’re on your way to the mountain? Neither do I! The Whistler Mountainside location sits at the base of both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains – where their gondolas meet in Whistler Village. This means the Hotel lobby is located 10 steps away from the foot of the Whistler tram. The best address in Whistler means goodbye to back aches and stress!

2. The Rooms

Two Bedroom Suite

Did you know that ALL rooms at the Pan Pacific Whistler come standard with a FULL kitchen, fireplace and private balcony? That means you can live out your dream of hitting the slopes, preparing a hearty winter meal for the family and sipping hot cocoa on the balcony in your knitted woolen sweater…(Ok maybe that’s not your dream but you get the point!). The kitchen also comes fully equipped with a microwave, oven and most of the common kitchen supplies you’ll need.

3. A Ski Equipment store and rental right in the lobby!

Salomon Store

One of Whistler’s most trusted Ski Equipment and rentals stores – The Salomon Store – is located in the Hotel lobby. Before my stay, the staff asked for my equipment requirements in advance and had everything ready once I arrived. They had an expert staff that knew their stuff and made sure I was on my way in just a few minutes.

Guests of the Hotel can enjoy the convenience of signing privileges right to their suite and even offer free Tuning & service.

4. The DUBH!!

The Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub is literally “in the house”.

The bar is decorated to showcase a pictorial journey through Ireland’s culture and believe me, every last detail of this bar is Irish! They offer a huge selection of beer (over 25 taps) and live music throughout the week. It’s definitely one of the places to be on a Friday or Saturday night in the Whistler Village. Be sure to check out their events list in advance. And after a night at the Dubh Linn Gate, being just a few steps from your Hotel room certainly has its privileges!

5. All the little extra perks!

The Pan Pacific Whistler is known not only for its quality service and high standards – but also all the little perks that most hotels wouldn’t dream of offering:

Pan Pacific Mountainside Lobby

All gests of the hotel receive free high-speed Wi-Fi access and free local calls. Valet service is included in the parking fee, so the Valet team parks the cars at no additional charge. Slope-side valet ski storage for all Pan Pacific guests is also free. The Hotel truly prides itself on no hidden fees or surprises at check out. These are just some of the few reasons Pan Pacific Whistler has been ranked #1 on Trip Advisor for the past two years running.
