Conveniently located in the heart of Whistler, Summit Lodge is a boutique hotel with a range of well-equipped studios and suites with a playful, contemporary design. Carefully-chosen but mismatched furniture, quirky artwork, feature lamps and bright cushions give the lobby a trendy, youthful appearance.
The Deluxe Studios follow a similarly modish style, while the Executive and One Bedroom suites are more conventional. All come with kitchenettes, a dining area and large bathrooms and balconies.
There are two restaurants to choose from on site, an upmarket tapas venue with a strong local reputation, and a relaxed sushi restaurant serving a variety of Japanese dishes. The hotel also runs a daily evening wine reception.
There's a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, a sauna and a spa and bike and scooter rentals are available. From December to April guests can also make use of a complimentary ski shuttle. On foot, it's about a ten-minute walk to the gondolas and just a short stroll around the surrounding streets to find a choice of cafes, restaurants, shops and galleries.
The resort has three types of room all with a fully-equipped kitchenette, dining table and en suite bathroom with a bath. The Deluxe Studios have the most trendy, playful design with bright, geometric patterns on the walls or cushions, quirky artwork, and splashes of hot pink, lime green or turquoise blue. The Executive Suites and One Bedroom Suites are a little more conservative with more subdued, traditional decor. All rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV and fluffy bath robes.
Summit Lodge is located in the heart of Whistler Village with a wide variety of shops, cafes, restaurants, galleries and bars in the surrounding streets. It's ten minutes’ walk to the Blackcomb and Whistler gondolas that offer mountain access year round and 120km (74 miles) to Vancouver.

Sachi Sushi has a casual atmosphere but dishes out plates of finely-crafted sushi, noodles and tempura, as well as steaming hot pots in a stylish venue with traditional Japanese artwork on the walls. There's also a wide range of cafes and restaurants within a short stroll of the resort.
