LEGENDS (Whistler, Canada)
Excellent All-Around Lodging
We booked the Legends for a family trip to Whistler that I’ve wanted to do for ages. It was Wife and I, our two kids (3 & 5) and my mother. We booked a two bedroom and it was plenty big. Grandma and 3 year old took the room with two singles. 5 year old slept on the pull out couch. Wife and I got the master with the king. The beds were well liked by the whole family and everyone got plenty of sleep. Soft!!! I liked the reading lights at each bed, so I could stay up and not need to keep my wife up. Bedding and towels were changed and towels were plentiful. We had one issue with our Bedroom TV not working, but their handyman came out, worked on it and got it fixed for us.
Kitchen has most of the utensils and plates you will need. The housekeeping even runs the dishwasher!!! They ONLY give you coffee for night one. If I was to take anything off my review it would be here. BUT, there is a Tim Horton’s a very short walk away from us – which my mother and I love. So that was my routine; a nice morning walk to TH’s for coffee, donuts and hot choco for the kids.
Condo #233 is the place to be: Back door goes right out to the walkway between Dusty’s (food and drink) and Legends. There is a back entrance right there to the Ski lockers for you, then walk less than 100 yds to the Creekside Gondola. Also, the Kids Ski School is right there by the Gondola. 233 is on the same floor as the common areas, but it is at the far end away from them; so you are close to the gym, pool, hot tubs, pool table room, video game room, etc. But not soo close that you get any noise from those areas. There are two hot tubs! One large family one, then separated there is a smaller grown-ups only hot tub. Very nice setup. The elevator down to the parking garage is just outside your door. The parking slot size is horrible, but it’s expected in a underground facility trying to service all the lodgings there.
Everyone we spoke with was kind, receptive and very helpful.
You are a little walking bridge away from a little bitty storefront area. It has the rental store, grocery store, starbucks, and liquor store.
Creekside is the quiet side, and we appreciated it. You are still very close / short drive to Whistler Village which has many more places to eat, drink and shop – perfect location for us to stay and we are suggesting it to all our friends.
