Wild & Us | OVERNIGHT STAY AT THE PANGEA POD HOTEL, WHISTLER

by Wild & Us

Excerpt:

“We ran to snap some photos outside before it got too dark, then properly checked into the hotel. Pangea’s cool vibe hit us right away, with their all-digital check-in procedure, wrist bands instead of room cards and edgy artwork adorning the walls. Dimmed atmospheric lighting ran throughout the building and there was a real sense of mountain sport and adventure, meets stylish and chic comfort.”

Pique Newsmagazine | Survey takes a look at preferences in eating out

by Fiona Scrivens

Excerpt:

“Despite the survey’s findings, Whistler’s Pangea Pod Hotel owner Russell Kling tries not to focus on social media for his restaurant.

“(Social media) is a very small portion of our business,” said Kling. “I’m guessing, but I would say that 99.99 per cent of our business is repeat customers or word of mouth.”

The survey also revealed that the generation-X age group is more willing to speak up about any concerns they have to a manager while those who are 55 years old and over are more likely to compliment good service.”

Ski Canada | Hip High Altitude Homey Hostel/Hotel Hybrids

by Louise Hudson

Excerpt:

“The smallest slopeside sanctuary around is probably Canada’s first pod hostel-hotel, the Pangea Pod at Whistler Blackcomb which opened last season. The marketing says: “We’re not a hostel. We’re not a hotel. We’re the best of both worlds.” While guests have their own teensy territory to relax and sleep in, everything else is shared. “This ‘chic shared’ concept is changing the face of the travel industry in North America, and is setting a trend towards alternative accommodation worldwide,” says Pangea Pod’s Kristina Matisic.”

by The-Ski-Guru

Excerpt:

“But Pangea isn’t only about the pods; it offers superb shared spaces too. The Living Room, a stylish combo of lounge, bar, café, and espresso bar, boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the bustle of Whistler’s Village Stroll, giving the space the feeling of an outdoor patio. The Rooftop Patio is Whistler’s only true rooftop bar, providing a bird’s eye view of Mountain Square. And The Toy Box, an open-plan secure storage area for skis, snowboards, mountain bikes, and other gear, was custom created to address the needs of equipment-laden outdoor enthusiasts.”

SKI Magazine | Whistler’s First Pod Hotel Is Important for Skiers Everywhere

by Jon Jay

Excerpt:

“Considering rates can be as low at $50 CAD a night, it’s easily the most inexpensive stay in Whistler Village. With a bed to sleep in, a fantastic restaurant in the common area—known as The Living Room—on the second floor, and ample secured gear storage, the Pangea Pod hotel has everything a skier needs to sleep, eat, get out into the mountains, and repeat. After all, people don’t go to places like Whistler Blackcomb to spend all day in a hotel room, no matter how big or small it might be.”
