Guest comments:

This was our second stay at your condo, and everything was absolutely fine, thank you. We picked your suite because we stayed there over new year last year and wanted to repeat the experience. Check-in process was smooth, and the condo was very clean, comfortable and well equipped.

"Once we got into the condo, it was exactly as pictured on the website. No surprises.  I've always stayed in the Upper Village during previous visits to Whistler. However, we really enjoyed the peace and quiet and convenience of staying at the Lake Placid Lodge in Creekside. I can't wait to plan my next trip to Whistler. This unit at Lake Placid lodge will be at the top of my list for places to stay."

Great location/excellent accommodation


travelmaven_7 from 32655
Date: Jan-30-2012

I am so glad that I decided to stay in Whistler Creekside at the Lake Placid Lodge. The location was easy to find, and once we got there, everything was perfect. Booking the reservation was easy to do via the alluradirect.com website. You know right away what your final payment will be including taxes. You can also use a credit card right over the website. After payment is processed, they send you detailed instructions and directions to the hotel. It is located right off Highway 99. We especially enjoyed having free covered parking, and elevator access from the parking garage to the first floor unit. Once we got into the condo, it was exactly as pictured on the website. No surprises. We also liked the close proximity to the Creekside Gondola. We walked across the street, up a few stairs and the gondola was within a 100 yards or so. Also within close proximity is a grocery and liquor store as well as restaurants. I've always stayed in the Upper Village during previous visits to Whistler. However, we really enjoyed the peace and quiet and convenience of staying at the Lake Placid Lodge in Creekside. I can't wait to plan my next trip to Whistler. This unit at Lake Placid lodge will be at the top of my list for places to stay.

Quiet convenient and comfortable

Just a couple of minutes from the Whistler gondola, the supermarket and the airport bus. Quiet at nights, great outdoor hot tub and plenty of room. Great for couples or solos especially those wanting to self-cater.
