Well for our first night we stayed in Vancover to get over the jetlag. Driving to whistler was decided not too be a good idea and it turned out to be correct.
Parking is a bit of a trek from the hotel but its free, if you park in the multi story.
We asked for a room with a river view other wise its a view of the car park. We got a FREE upgrade to a suite on the 10th floor, with a river view. Also the runway at the airport. For most that would be a bad thing, but Lulu loves it. PLANES yay. More pics to follow we were a bit goosed
