Check-in at Sundial Boutique Hotel
I arrived at Sundial Boutique Hotel right before the sun was going down. In the heart of Whistler Village surrounded by amazing mountains, it is right next to Pan Pacific Whistler Village and has Pangea Pod Hotel as the neighbour on the other side. The check-in was smooth and the friendly staff offered me an upgrade for the first night to a mountain-view suite – what a great welcome by the world-class resort of Whistler and Cornucopia Festival.
The front desk staff quickly briefed on the features of the Hotel. All the guest rooms are one or two-bedroom suites and equipped with kitchenettes and fireplaces. There are a few rooms that have hot tubs on balconies and fantastic views, but they are booked up very fast. However, the other guests can enjoy a rooftop hot tub and have access to a pool at a nearby hotel. Three on-site restaurants serve Mexican, sushi, and Irish pub fare. The Irish also serves breakfast, which is rare in the village. Like most resorts in the village, there is plenty of storage for bike and ski on-site for summer or winter activities. Laundry room and underground parking are also available for a fee.
Mountain View Suite
Designed to accommodate four guests, the 600 sqft suite is incredibly relaxing and filled with luxury features.
The suite offers views of the Whistler Blackcomb Gondolas and the centre of the village. Since Whistler had a dry November this year, the views really did not matter a lot before there would be any snow. But you can imagine how impressive it would get when the snow starts to fall over the mountains.
The master bedroom has a unique King-split bed with luxurious sterns & foster mattress and also features CubieBlue Bluetooth alarm clock, in-room safe, and blackout drapes.
The separate living room showcases a corner gas fireplace, 50-inch flat-screen smart TV with DVD player, and contemporary furniture including a queen-size sofa bed.
The bathroom has a full bathtub equipped with AVEDA amenities, plush bathrobes, heated slate flooring.
One of the best features for me is the large mirror in the suite!
Sundial Boutique Hotel features 3 great restaurants, Black’s Restaurant & Pub, Sushi Village and The Mexican Corner, all conveniently located on the second floor of the hotel.
I decided to check out Black’s Pub for a drink before picking up my Cornucopia Festival passes. Black’s Pub is quite sizable with an outdoor patio and spectacular views of the mountains. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the food menu features specialty dishes such as bison ribs, sticky date pudding, various pizza, and house yam fries. They also offer live entertainment every Saturday after 9:00 p.m. and open mic night on Wednesday.
As a gin lover, I adored their Gin & Tonic section on the drink menu, which you can mix and match through a list of premium gins from around the world and a selection of Fever-Tree tonics of different flavours.
I highly recommend the Haymans Sloe Gin from English and the Schramm Organic Canadian Dry from Pemberton, the neighboring town.
The Rooftop Hot Tub
Nothing is more relaxing than having a soak in the rooftop hotpot and appreciating the spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.
Valley View Suite
I checked into the Valley View Suite the next day. Looking at the beautiful European chalet-style buildings, I really enjoy the views here as well.
I had an amazing stay at Sundial Boutique Hotel in the heart of Whistler Village, which was filled with convenience, comfort, and impressive luxury features. It provides ideal lodging for the best Whistler experience. I’m extremely grateful for 2 spectacular nights offered by Whistler Tourism, Cornucopia Festival 2019 and Sundial.
