COVID-19 Updates and New Protocols
The safety and well-being of our guests, associates and community remain our top priority as we continue taking measures to help curb this global pandemic here in BC, Canada.
If you are at high-risk for COVID-19 exposure or are feeling unwell, we ask you to delay your travel plans. If you are unsure of how to assess yourself for COVID-19 symptoms, please visit the BC Self Assessment Tool.
As we plan for the lifting of the regional travel advisory and a banner ski season, rest assured that Pan Pacific Whistler is a safe haven for your travels. We have implemented new cleaning and disinfecting policies and social distancing measures, including:
ARRIVAL EXPERIENCE & PUBLIC SPACES
- Guests will arrive at the property and access the building via automatic touchless doors.
- We kindly ask that guests wear masks in all public spaces as mandated by the Public Health Order.
- Valet service is temporarily suspended.
- We ask that only one member of the travelling party enters the lobby to complete check-in, while others remain in the vehicle.
- There is now paperless check-in that requires that the named guest provide their photo ID and the same credit card in their name that was used to book the reservation.
- Until further notice we will not accept cash as payment.
- There is hand sanitizer available throughout our common areas.
- We have enhanced the frequency of sanitization of all touchpoints throughout our properties.
- Signage is in place, reminding our guests and associates to practise social distancing.
- We ask that only travelling companions access the elevators together. Otherwise, the maximum capacity will be two guests.
- Hotel associates will not share elevators with guests.
- The pool and hot tubs will be open to hotel guests only from 10am to 10pm throughout the week with limited capacity using the facilities at any one time. Time slots can be reserved with our Guest Services Team by same-day sign up.
- The fitness centre and sauna will remain closed for the time being.
- The complimentary breakfast buffet at our Village Centre location has been replaced with a continental breakfast delivered daily to your suite. This service will be contactless delivery.
SUITES & HOUSEKEEPING
- There is a resting period after guest departure. Then the suite is cleaned and disinfected using enhanced cleaning sanitation protocols, such as using an electrostatic sanitizer in line with guidelines stipulated by provincial health authorities. Single-use items are replaced, and every dish/utensil/pot in the kitchen is cleaned between stays.
- Pens, stationery, magazines and hotel information have been removed from suites. However, they are available upon request, along with other amenities.
- Daily housekeeping is suspended until further notice. If you require anything during your stay, such as new towels, garbage removal, etc., please contact Guest Services for assistance.
- No associate is permitted to enter a guestroom when a guest is within the room.
- Every associate has undergone COVID-19 related training and is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal sanitization and handwashing protocols, as well as maintain social distancing in the back of the house where possible.
- Associates are asked not to be on any premises if feeling unwell and temperature checks are mandatory at the start of every shift.
- Masks are worn at all times in public spaces.
- For winter 2021/22 bookings rest assured that if pandemic travel restrictions are put into effect by either your country or Canada, we will either refund your deposit or move your reservation to future travel dates.
