CHECKED IN: PAN PACIFIC WHISTLER VILLAGE

Pan Pacific Whistler Village Hotel Review

Hey travel bugs! We recently checked in to the Pan Pacific Hotel in Whistler Village, Canada. It was both of our first times exploring Whistler and we had an amazing time in the area as well as the hotel.

It was 6PM and we had been hiking down the mountain past sunset in the dark and cold.. 38,000 steps later, all we could think about was arriving...

Our first time here, we were the only party of 2 in line so the worker pulled us aside and set up a little...
