Granite Court 301 - March 2013

We stayed in GC 301 for 11 nights in late March 2013 and had a great time. The apartment was well appointed and had everything you could want. The location is great for the supermarket but around 10 mins to the slopes, there is a bus but its not that frequent so we just walked each day. The management company were really helpful and provided a lot of useful information in the arrival pack. The underground car park was big enough to fit our Suburban which was perfect as some can be tight with a big truck. The only thing lacking is a hot tub but we knew this beforehand but overall the apartment was brilliant and we'd stay here again.

This is the second time I have booked with Whistler Platinum and the second time in Granite Court. It's a great little place, great location. The places are nicely decorated and the kitchens are great for cooking. This last time, a couple of our people were bitten by some bug or something that was in there, but the place was very clean - chalk it up to bad luck maybe. The check-in staff was great other than the security guy who was a little short with me when directing me to the lodge where you get keys and such. Overall, it's a nice little place to stay and if you're looking for somewhere close, cheap, and not right in the middle of all the noise in the village, there isn't a better spot.

This was not the apartment we booked which had not been serviced on our arrival. One call prompted rapid move/upgrade to more spacious and delightful ground floor apartment. It had everything we needed and was the perfect base for enjoying Whistler.

We certainly enjoyed our stay. Close to amenities but had to take a bus to get to the lifts. Walking would have taken 20 minutes with skis and ski boots. The condo was very clean and very " cozy ". The inside was a bit dated...I stress a " bit " not a lot. I would stay again and would recommend it to friends.
A very comfortable unit. Almost too comfortable, as, after a hard day's skiing and when still a little jet lagged, it made it difficult to want to go out again! It had everything we needed and is in a quiet spot with easy access to the supermarket. It was, however, a long walk to the slopes in the morning (a good warm-up though) and then back after a hard day's skiing, as we didn't manage to catch a bus (no clear information about running times and number of the bus you needed to catch), so we had an extra cost of renting lockers for our walking boots near the slopes and were able to leave our skis at the hire shop each night.
This unit wasn't our first choice (it was offered as a last-minute substitute), but we ended up really liking it. We were in Whistler for summer mountaintop hiking and end-of-day relaxation/fun. The complex is attractively designed and the location is
fantastic--right on the edge of the main Village stroll, so you're near all the action/services but not right IN amongst them. The unit was in a very quiet area, yet we could walk to a popular restaurant or the gondola/lifts within 10-15 min. Only issue may
be that the bedrooms are quite small, with very little room for luggage. Only 2 of us so we easily made do, but I don't think I'd try any more than 4 people in here unless you all travel very light.

location was fantastic for the summer. close to lost lake for runs and the village for shopping (especially groceries). the apartment had everything that we needed. only drawback was the distance and unavoidable stairs from the garage with large suitcases. but nonetheless, very pleasant stay!
Not to be displayed, but a general comment for Whistler, the biggest issue is the busing. There needs to be reliable and frequent buses especially during the peak hours at the start and the end of the day. More specifically, bus #5.
on the whole, we were very happy with our time at your condo. Ho

A couple with three children under 12 would find the unit comfortable enough, but the tri-bed room was not set up for an adult couple (we gave my mother the master bedroom as she was worried about sleeping under an overhanging bunk). The second bedroom was too small to facilitate a reading lamp on each side of the bed, and sleeping under the upper bunk was claustrophobic (not to mention that my husband bumped his head). We improved things marginally by rearranging the bedding so that our heads were at the bottom of the bed -- otherwise one of us would have been crammed into the corner near the window with no easy way to get out and no reading light.
We enjoyed our stay at Granite Court once we resigned ourselves to the bed, but there were a couple of other areas that could have been improved upon (1) the difficulty accessing the unit from the parkade, and the lack of window screens. Bringing her things up was difficult for my mother, a senior, without an elevator. Carrying iceboxes and other large items up the stairs with doors that shut and locked on us repeatedly was a little frustrating for us, too. And as we arrived on a warm evening, we took the liberty of opening the windows and deck door -- but the lack of screens let in a stream of biting insects.
Despite these inconveniences, we enjoyed our stay in your suite, given its cosy atmosphere and proximity to village and marketplace. A suggestion: advertise the condo as suitable for six people instead of seven, and remove the top bunk of the tri-bed so that a couple can be comfortable sleeping there. (And find a way to rig up a second bedside lamp.)You may lose one or two potential customers who wish to house seven people, but everyone else will be grateful.

The unit was confortable, quiet and clean. The TV was not user-friendly! Most shows we wanted to watch were extra-cost, and no Whistler channel with mountain weather and Whistler info! There is only a strip at the bottom of channel 4 with minimal weather info. No hot-tub! Not a big deal, but every other place we have stayed at WB has had one, so I didn't even ask when I booked. Also when I booked, I assumed that there were frequent buses running back and forth along Blackcomb way to and from the Village. First person we talked to at front desk said buses were every 20 min, better to walk. We do enjoy hiking, and have come to WB for hiking in the summer more than once, but hiking in ski boots and/or carrying ski boots and everything else is not that much fun. Later we talked to someone else who said that the #5 runs every 7-10 minutes. I just looked at Whistler Transit's website and I see that #5 seems to run every 15 min by sort of a round-about route to the Village. So I guess we saved $6 for the 3 of us by walking and renting a locker for our shoes but, I'm still surprised there isn't a more direct bus between this complex and the village. Our other choice was to go to Mt. Bachelor where there are no on-slope accomodations, you have to drive 20min each way. My wife might be happier with that next time.
