by @looselipsmag

Excerpt:

“Enter Pangea Pod, Canada’s first-ever pod hotel. Partly inspired by the capsule hotels of Tokyo, Pangea Pod finds itself halfway between a hotel and a hostel. Located in the heart of Whistler Village, Pangea Pod Hotel is the perfect spot for millennials in search of a social vibe, cheap digs, and a private (ish) slumber. The cost ranges based on the season, from as little as $56.05 and as high as $189.05.

Bricault worked with the Klings over three years to create an original accommodation solution bridging the gap between luxury hotel and inexpensive hostel, offering the privacy needed for a night’s rest in the heart of the mountain resort, for a reasonable price.

The Editor’s Diary | A Night At Whistler’s New Pangea Pod Hotel

by Michele Marko

Excerpt:

“A whimsical, surreal mural, by noted Canadian artist Ola Volo, welcomes guests at the entrance to the building, reflecting the design aesthetic though out the hotel. Arriving at the top of the stairs — your bike can travel up a metal track with you — you’ll find the reception desk. It’s so very techy too. Room keys are snazzily designed chips on a bracelet in the hotel’s brand colours of turquoise, black and white. Just think, no matter how many apres ski cocktails are downed, one will never lose their key.

Canada’s first pod hotel has arrived in Whistler and it aims to bridge the gap for budget travelers between a hostel and a high-end boutique hotel. The Pangea Pod Hotel website notes that staying at the property will “at most, cost half the price of a conventional hotel room, and usually far less.”

by Meagan Gill

Excerpt:

“The Mezzanine pod is the “loft” level where you’ll climb to the top of the bunk and feel just like you’re back at Summer camp. Female-Only pods are located in suites where only female travelers can book in for those who feel a little uneasy about shared accommodation.
