A stylish option in Whistler’s serene Creekside Village, Evolution opened in July 2008. The suites more closely resemble apartments than hotel rooms— the kitted-out bathrooms are easily the size of hotel rooms at some less fortunate lodgings, with soaking tubs and separate showers. The 70 one- and two-bedroom units have double-sided fireplaces, balconies and full kitchens. The property is ski-in/ski-out via the Creekside Gondola and a short walk to the new dining choices in the village. Public areas include heated outdoor pool, hot tubs, sun terrace and lobby lounge for gathering before heading out for the evening.
