Hotel Review – Delta by Marriott Whistler

Updated on July 18th, 2021

Whistler Delta by Marriott Whisttler, at the time of writing, is a Category 6 hotel. One night’s stay requires 50,000 points.

Whistler, where the hotel is located, is a ski resort, if you stay in winter. It is about 400-500 Canadian dollars. Due to the epidemic situation, ordinary double rooms only cost about 150 Canadian dollars a night during despite it being the peak season of Canada’s National Day. Ordinary double rooms only cost about 150 Canadian dollars a night, so I decided to book two nights in one of these double rooms.

Check in

I thought the hotel wouldn’t have too many people, but when I went there, I found that the hotel was almost full, and I had to line up from the time I checked in. The arrival time was around 2 pm, and the lobby was already lined up.

At check-in, the customer service told me that the room was not ready, because the company responsible for cleaning the sheets was too late to send the clean sheets, so it took an hour more to get the room card. Considering the current situation, the tardiness of the hotel was understandable. However, what I didn’t expect was that I didn’t get the room card until about 4:30 in the afternoon, which was a bit excessive.

At 4 o’clock in the afternoon, I asked the customer service at the front desk, saying that the room has been cleaned up, but they still needed a special person to check it before I can check in. This hotel does not have a restaurant, so neither breakfast nor the executive lounge were available. If you have a Marriott’s platinum card or more, in this case, 1000 points will be sent as compensation every night at check-in.

Parking lot

The hotel’s parking is 32 dollars a day (CAD). However, there is also a parking lot called Rainbow Parkade which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel, and it’s price is just 15 Canadian dollars a day.

Outdoor activities

This hotel is located in Whistler Village. If you want to take the cable car up the mountain, it takes about 5-10 minutes to go to the cable car. In summer, you can rent a bicycle, as hotel has a shop to rent. The guests get 10% off.

Hotel room

This time, I booked a two-room suite, which is a bit special in design. After entering the first door, it is divided into two separate rooms, and both suites are locked.

Since the highest-level King Size bed suite is fully booked, only one mountain view room is considered an upgrade.

Note that at the time of booking, if you fill in more than 2 adults, you will need to add extra money; but even if you only fill in 2 adults, when you give the room card, you are directly given 4 room cards

The large suite is a one-bedroom, one-hall design, which is fairly large.

There is also a dining table and a fully equipped kitchen.

And there is also a washer-dryer, which can be used when skiing in winter.

The bedroom is slightly smaller, and there is also a TV in the room.

The other smaller room has two Double Size beds, and also has a kitchen sink and a bathroom.

Bathroom

Kitchen

The hotel provides a complete set of cutlery, so is no problem to buy things outside to cook in the hotel.

Cups, plates, dishes, knives and forks, or kitchen paper, bread machines, etc. are included.

Anti-pandemic measures

The hotel staff tries to avoid contact with people, so bottled water will be placed in the corner of the lobby for guests to use.

The elevator says that it can only be used by one family a time, so we often have to wait in line for the elevator.

The swimming pool was open, but neither was the fitness room nor the sauna.

The swimming pool of this hotel is a warm pool. In the words of customer service at the front desk, it was “pretty warm”.

Conclusion

I feel that this Marriott is quite satisfactory, given the current circumstances. If you come to live during the ski time and buy something to cook, it’s pretty good.
