Whistler WinterPRIDE 2008: SUITE DREAMS
Story and photo by Aefa Mulholland.
Whistler’s Westin Resort & Spa is my new favorite hotel. Not only are the staff warm, friendly and incredibly professional, but the rooms and the heavenly bed a pleasure to return to after a long night out on the town. Actually, that's “Heavenly” with a trademark sign.
Despite having been a travel writer for an eon, this is actually the first time I’ve stayed in a Westin. It won’t be my last. I’d heard talk about Westin’s famed Heavenly Beds, but hadn’t given them much consideration until now.
They are honestly the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever encountered. They are going to have to prize me out tomorrow morning when I have to head back down the Sea to Sky Highway and on to Seattle.
I checked the in-room catalog and if I want to add a “Heavenly Ensemble” to my mini-bar bill at check-out, it’d only be $2,735 to $3,620: an appealing deal, considering that that includes a box spring, mattress, bed skirt, sheets, down blanket, duvet, cover, five pillows and pillowcases)
It’s snowing! Again! I know I shouldn’t be surprised, but after spending the last ten days in rainy Vancouver, the sight of all that fresh snow at Whistler WinterPride is a happy start to the day.
