The 11 Best Hotels for Families in Whistler, BC

Directly beside the Excalibur Gondola are the Carleton Lodge, Sundial Hotel, and the Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside.

1. Four Seasons Resort Whistler

The best luxury hotel for families in Whistler. Year-round resort offering spacious 1-bedroom (family of 4), 2-bedroom (family of 5 or 6), 3-bedroom (family of 6), and 4-bedroom residences (family of 8) with cozy wood interiors and superb forest, mountain or valley views from furnished terraces. Rustic-style residences have deep soaking tubs, full kitchens, queen-sized sofa beds, a gas-burning fireplace, and guest powder rooms. The hotel offers ski concierge, 1 restaurant, a heated free-form outdoor pool, and access to 3 golf courses. Kids can enjoy a junior golf program, dog sledding, snowmobiling, and snowboarding. Special adventures such as a chance to explore ice caves or play golf on a remote glacier that’s only accessible by helicopter can be arranged. Both Whistler village and the Base of Blackcomb mountain are a short walk away. The only drawback for the Four Seasons is that it’s not a ski-in/ski-out resort.
