Hilton Whistler Resort & Spa is conveniently located in Whistler Village. It is a short walk to most shops and restaurants. This year’s girls trip we stayed here at the Hilton Hotel Whistler. It was a great local staycation yet far enough from the boys.

 

Hilton Whistler has free wifi, heated outdoor pools and hot tubs. Rooms are clean and service was friendly. I liked it was near the ski lifts. Although parking was quite expensive at $30/night for self parking or $34 for valet parking. But it isn’t so bad once if divide up the cost.

The beds were comfortable and we all slept well. The hot water pressure was a-okay! Bath products provided are Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Skin Care. It is one of the bestselling anti-aging clinical skin care. The Mega-Rich Body Wash is uniquely formulated with innovative moisturizing beads that release nourishing vitamins A, C, E and pro-vitamin B5. Paraben-free; phthalate-free.

If you are ever up in Whistler, I highly recommend Scandinave Spa.  This luxury spa is every girl’s dream. On the edge of Lost Lake and Spruce Groves parks is a 20,000 sqft outdoor experience of age-old Finnish tradition. Soaking in soothing outdoor warm and cold baths with refreshing waterfalls can melt away the worst of situations. Add a Swedish massage to complete rejuvenation and welcome it equally with enthused numbers of heart-eyed emojis.

Room rates at Hilton Hotel Whistler are reasonable even during peak season. This leaves us extra spending money for snow boarding, indoor rock-climbing and also a nice fancy dinner at Araxi.

We’re taking a staycation to Whistler for my birthday weekend. Even though Whistler ski season is pretty much done and May is around the corner, the Sea to Sky Highway is bare. Because there aren’t any snow on the roads, we were able to enjoy the scenic along the drive. Vancouver, BC is beautiful when you got the city, the ocean and the mountains.

We took our sweet time having breakfast and made Vietnamese coffee before we left Vancouver. By the time we got to Squamish we were more or less famished. Dave suggested that we head to The Nest Restaurant in Brackendale, BC. When we got there, it was closed. It was fate that we detoured to The Watershed Grill Squamish on the way to Whistler. You turn down the street on Government Road. We did a little Google-ing and saw that reviews were decent. You may be a little skeptical when you pull up to the driveway. It is like someone’s backyard, a modest shed.

When you climb up to the top of the stairs you are greeted with a gorgeous view of Eagle’s Run – water, trail, beautiful mountain backdrop and a restaurant with front row seats. Open patio, inside bar, and a dining room area inside.

Caesar: Salt rimmed glass with a sharp spicy tomato cocktail with not just one “impotent” bean  but two. This Caesar is a delightful surprise that brightens my day. I shall remember it and add it to my “list”.

REUBEN SANDWICH sauerkraut, swiss, yellow mustard, pickle, marble rye. A deli favourite of a striking balance with a good helping of corned beef, a bit of cheese, heaps of sauerkraut, and plenty of Dijon. It brought back memories of Schwartz’s Hebrew Delicatessen Montreal.

PESTO CHICKEN LINGUINE: Simple but well executed. The pasta was al dente, the chicken well-seasoned and flavourful. Plenty of pesto and grape tomatoes.

 

Bring good walking shoes so you can enjoy a little stroll after lunch on the Eagle Run. Why the hurry?
