This week, we've taken a trip to the Winter Wonderland that is Whistler in British Columbia, Canada. Aside from enjoying the snow, the mountains and the adorable Canadian accents, we've also been checking out the hotel scene. Every day we'll sum up a hotel in the Whistler Village for your edification. Remember this place will be jammed packed next year with guests as the host of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Any questions? Let us know.

There are actually quite a few hotels in Whistler Village, and we do mean right in Whistler Village. No shuttle required. So when The Hilton Whistler boasts about being steps from the Whistler Blackcomb chairlifts and gondolas, it ain't misbehaving in saying that.

Above all, you should stay here if being close to the slopes is important to you. It is truly ski-in, ski-out and there's even a ski butler in the lobby to help store your equipment when you're not using it.

The hotel is not only close to the powder, it's close to the shops. It's located on top of a mini-retail plaza which includes a chocolate store, ski equipment store, a coffee shop, several art galleries. It's also the pick-up point for Blackcomb Snowmobile Tours which we tried and loved.

Yet it's funny how Hilton hotels are so standardized that no matter where you are, the Hilton hotel always looks and feels like a Hilton hotel. This Hilton is no different, except for maybe its location near the slopes and the cozy fireplace in the lobby.

Guestroom categories at the Hilton Whistler range from a superior room with two queen beds to a two-bedrooom suite. Amenities include Hilton Serenity beds, Lavazza single-serve coffee makers, Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries and indigenous art from the neighboring Sea-to-Sky corridor. Looks like this Hilton has some personality afterall!

More onsite amenities at the Hilton include an outdoor pool, a 24-hour fitness center, a 24-hour business center, a spa and the Cinnamon Bear Grille which serves breakfast and dinner.

Of course, you pay more here for being close to the action. Rooms start around $349CAD a night.

Lavazza - yay! Aww I was hoping for some embarrassing pictures of guests trying to get on the ski lifts with all their gear.
