In Whistler Village, just a short walk away from various attractions
The hotel is located just outside the main action in Whistler Village, and is within a short walk of bars, restaurants, and the lifts in Skiers Plaza.
Whistler Village is the hub of Whistler's activity, and is where visitors can find the famous gondolas that carry skiers and snowboarders up the mountain. Easiest to navigate by foot, this neighborhood has plenty of pedestrian walkways, and many trails link the Village to different parks, golf courses, and lake beaches. Whistler Village offers plenty of shopping and a variety of restaurants (including fast food chains), coffee shops, and bars.
From the outside, the Aava Whistler Hotel looks like many other Whistler hotels -- Bavarian-style architecture, lots of exposed wood, and well-kept grounds with some greenery. On the inside, the 191 contemporary rooms come with quality linens, up-to-date technology, and stylish touches, but lack distinctive mountain charm. The location isn't ski-in, ski-out, but it's still convenient -- just a short walk to the restaurants, bars, and ski lifts in the Village.
