My family visits Whistler every year and we love staying at Club Intrawest. Clean and cozy rooms with tons of amenities. Eucalyptus steam room is the best as well as the pools and hot tub! Never gets old!

Great rooms and friendly staff... a perfect place to stay as a family! Pools are wonderful both for families and also adults. Studio rooms are very small. Two bedroom rooms are fantastic! Only complaint is the video arcade needs updating as the paceman game does. Or work well! Nice reception for Remembrance Day

Seeing as I've been to many Intrawest facilities, this wasn't my favourite, but it still is worth noting and has a wonderful resort. Their pool facilities are very fun, the people are warm and kind, and it is in a prime location with respect to the mountain.
