Travel Writers: Experience Crystal Lodge & Suites


Here's an opportunity for all you travel writers out there: Between January 2 – June 30th,  the Crystal Lodge & Suites is welcoming 2 journalists per month to experience this unique Whistler resort in in British Columbia. Qualified journalists are invited to come and experience all the resort has to offer and find out what it's like to stay 'at the center of it all' in North America's largest Ski Resort.

Here's the skinny on Crystal Lodge:

An international destination for leisure travelers, the Crystal Lodge & Suites offers an approachable and vibrant atmosphere to its guests.  The South Wing of the Hotel has been re-designed with a cool, crisp aesthetic accented by hues of blues and greys.  Inside the newly renovated Crystal Guestrooms, contemporary décor blended with west coast elements have guests feeling immersed in Whistler’s mountain culture.  Offering plush bedding, bright lighting, writing desks with flat screen television integration, full length mirrors, and contemporary bathrooms with our signature deep soaker bathtubs.  Containing plenty of ports for re-charging and complimentary high speed wireless internet access Crystal Lodge has made it extremely convenient for guests to stay connected from the comfort of their hotel room.

At this juncture, let me quote Ian Lowe, General Manager of the Crystal Lodge & Suites:

“We have been tracking our guests’ comments very closely over the past few years and are delighted with the new product we now offer.  From the design, to the functionality and flow of the rooms we are confident our new South Wing, ‘Crystal Room’ product will exceed the expectations of both our most loyal guests and those we are attracting for the first time.”, says Lowe. “In this day and age of dialogue with guests via review sites, surveys and old fashion face-to-face communication, it is amazing what trends you can identify.  The frequency of these trends gave us the blueprint for this renovation.”


“The latest renovation to our South Wing represents the Crystal Lodge’s commitment to our guests that we will continue to exceed expectations offering rooms that are continuously upgraded to today’s standards.” adds Warren Kalawsky, Operations Manager.  “Paired with our personalized service we look forward to welcoming our guests and helping them to create amazing new memories.”
