Clean, efficient, bright corner unit on the 5th floor of the building. Our family of four like to rent apartments for the convenience of having a kitchen and having enough space to spread out and have more personal space. The bathroom was newly renovated with a great shower. The location is near to the slopes; about 200 metres to the slopes (walk across the road then through the pathways. Registration on the website was easy, and the 12:00 check-out is convenient. There was a mix-up with the booking (through no fault of the owner); she was gracious to allow us to check out much later while we scrambled to pack our stuff and clear out for the next guests.
A great rental for a ski weekend. You can walk to the base of Blackcomb mountain. An additional 10 minute walk and you're at Whistler Village. No need for a car since there is no street parking permitted in winter and the parking garage has a $15/day fee. Ride the bus from Vancouver airport and use the free shuttle bus or walk in town. Shuttle stop located 100 feet from the entry of the complex. Ski in/out with minimal walking to Blackcomb mountain base. Snow conditions are highly variable in BC. Either you hit great snow or not. We did not have good snow. That did not detract from the stay however. We hiked and visited the rec center located about 2.5km away. Overall a great one bedroom condo that isn't in the rambunctious village.
Laryssa was a pleasure to deal with- excellent communication and check in was sooo easy with great instructions. Condo was great, updated kitchen, modern bathroom and wonderful heater! Spa/ hot tub and pool amazing after a day on the slopes. Location really convenient. A reasonable walk to the main village but only 4 minutes on free shuttle bus- which stops at the top of the driveway- literally. We even asked- last minute- for a late check out so we could squeeze in some skiing and Laryssa happily sorted out for the apartment to be cleaned later in the day. Excellent condo overall. Would recommend to any one. Thanks Laryssa!
Perfect location and had everything we needed! Right by the slops and just a short walk to the village. Or you can even catch the free bus right outside the Marquise which definately came in handy due to the weather. The unit had everything we could ever need to make our stay comfortable! From the kitchen all the way to the bathroom!
It was very clean. Very good location. Easy to check in and check out. Very professional. What more to ask? Thanks.
I thought the whole place was well set up and I loved the location and the view out onto the courtyard and front door. The kitchen and all the amenities in it are just fabulous and you can cook and see all that is happening. Unfortunately there are 2 things that marred my stay - the first is totally subjective but honestly could you find a harder bed to put in the bedroom. It was like a slab of concrete. Secondly, was being woken in the middle of the night by horseplay and young adult screams of joy from the pool on the opposite side of the complex. Things like this happen but where was security? We also had screaming outside between someone who was woken by smokers in the courtyard at 3 in the a.m and still no security - I found that disconcerting and made me feel insecure.
Recently stayed at the Marquise for 3 nites. Prior to arriving, we were given detailed instructions on what to do when we arrived at the condo building/unit. Parking was very convenient as it was connected to the building. The only trouble I have was locating the machine to purchase the parking ticket. Parking costs $15/day. Our one bedroom/bath unit was very well maintained -clean and comfortable. The kitchen was small but was sufficient to allow us to make a meal. The basic necessities were provided (e.g. b/r and dish soap, b/r and kitchen towels, etc.) Free shuttle bus service is conveniently located outside the builidng. If you are sking, you can easily get to the lift by sking/walking to Blackcomb base. The only recommendation I have is to install internet/wifi in this unit. Overall, great exeperience and will definatley be back to stay at the Marquise for next ski season.
The apartment was small but comfortable for three. The couch pulled out into a sleeper and was relatively comfortable. The bedroom had two twins pulled together to make one bed. If you spend too much time in the center, you can feel where the two come together. We didn't cook much while there, but there appeared to be plenty of pots, pans and silverware. The property was quiet, we didn't see too many other people out and about. The parking garage was tight, but adequate, I drive a four door pickup that sits a little higher and was able to move around without too much trouble. A four door truck with an eight foot bed might have some problems. We didn't notice any parking in the front or on the street when we arrived, not sure you can park on the street during winter with snow removal equipment working. The property is a short walk to the ski lifts, we found it easiest to exit through the garage and head down hill and across the street to the trail that heads towards the slopes. Once across the street you could put on your ski's and trek, there were some bare spots. We walked this trail to and from the lifts. There is a trail higher up on the mountain, look for the Marquise sign as you ski down. The upper village and whistler aren't too far a walk (5-15ish). We would use the same trail that we used to get to the lifts to access the upper village. If you continue through the upper village you will find a path that takes you to Whistler Village. If visiting on a weekend, eat early or make a reservation!! We recommend 21 and La Rua. 21 requires reservations unless you arrive after 2130. We walked into La Rua at 1730 and had the place to ourselves. At 1900 it was filling up. Majority of your shopping, nightlife and restaurants are going to be in Whistler Village, there are a few things in the Upper Village, but not much. If you are the type that likes front desk help or staff on call, this isn't the place for you.
One of the best values for being literally within a few hundred steps of the base of Blackcomb Mountain. All arrangements were made online and there were no surprises whatsoever. Great for small groups or small families
Check in instructions were clear and concise. Unit was lovely and very clean. Wonderful shower and bed, which was welcome at the end of a long day. Kitchen was spotless and well-equipped. Bathroom had one bar of soap. Not an issue as we had brought our own. Unit faces the courtyard. We were awakened both nights around 2-3 a.m. with other guests loudly returning when the bars closed (realize this is not something the owner has control over...).
