WHISTLER, BC May 10, 2010 - After an unforgettable winter, Whistler Creekside is ready to embrace summer and reveal why locals love this quaint little neighbourhood just down the road from bustling Whistler Village. Lodging Ovations' collection of upscale resort hotels are the perfect home base for exploring all Whistler has to offer, while providing a relaxed and intimate gathering place for family and friends.
"Whistler Village boasts most of the action but Creekside, located just five minutes away from the main pedestrian village, has its own special charm," says Jaime Dunn, Director of Sales and Marketing for Lodging Ovations. "In the winter we are just steps away from the slopes while in the summer walking or bike riding on the Valley Trail takes our guests to numerous lakes and parks within minutes. Also, every weekend a bustling Farmer's Market provides local artisans, bakers and Pemberton fruit and vegetable producers an opportunity to showcase their wares." Guests are invited to extend their stay with 50 percent off the third night booked at any Lodging Ovations property in Whistler Creekside. The offer must be booked before June 30. Some restrictions may apply. Visit www.lodgingovations.com for more information.
