Aava Whistler Hotel in Whistler, BC: value, eco-friendly comfort and convenience
The hotel is a find. Affordable yet less than a five-minute walk through the pedestrian village from the gondolas and lifts in the winter or the hiking/biking trails and golf course in the summer.
After a long day of skiing, pad down to the large outdoor hot-tub in big fluffy hotel robes and slippers. Slip into the sauna to unwind and then into the outdoor heated pool to re-energize for dinner. While the hotel is a 30-second walk to the pedestrian village and dozens of restaurants (or, note to tired parents—there is a White Spot across from the hotel), it is situated just slightly off the beaten track, which makes the pools quiet and relaxing.

The rooms are large and furnished with modern pieces and off beat yet understated patterns (large polka dot curtains), which have more of a stylish loft feel than your average hotel. The very comfortable beds have down duvets and crisp sheets. Added touches of all natural Aveda products in the bathrooms and a great espresso maker top off a great stay.
