HI everyone!

I'll be turning 50 soon and my wife is planning on taking me to whistler for a romantic biking getting away. We will NOT be riding in the bike park as I am coming of a serious knee injury (MCL . acl tear and tibial head compression fracture. We will only be riding xc trails (me in my fancy new Carbon fiber knee brace.. 

Looking for a hotel that has really good bike storage security?

Any suggestions?

In my opinion Aava is the best. Guests get nowhere near the bike room. Hotel personnel only.

Aava, The Westin and Four Seasons have secured storage with only employee access. You can also store your bike at the base of the mountain beside guest services. They charge for day fee I think is $10, overnight $15.00 and 24 hour storage is 18?

We always call the hotel and ask how the bikes are stored. 

Hope this helps.

https://www.whistler.com/activities/biking/accommodation/ is a decent reference.

We stayed at Tantalus last year and their bike storage room is accessible by guests (not cool). They say it's physically locked out at night so no one can access but still... saw someone's Nomad with ENVE wheels in there, not even locked to the rack.

The Pinnacle is not good either. Once staff lets you into the room, you could say any bike is yours & take it. Nowhere to lock it to, either.

Every year, we do a bike trip to a different city. When we started the ride, the weather was sunny, nothing foretold trouble. In just five minutes, the weather changed, the clouds turned black, and a thunderstorm started. We made our way to the nearby Stewart Hotel. How happy we were to be there, we were treated to hot tea. We parked our bikes in the parking lot, absolutely free. It turned out that there are many hotels with free parking in NYC. We were pleasantly surprised that we were allowed to do it, cause we didn't pay a cent.
