The Westin Resort & Spa
- Opened in April 2000 in Whistler, British Columbia, The Westin Resort & Spa has been twice-named the #1 ski resort hotel in North America by Condé Nast Traveler magazine. One of the many amenities of the Westin Resort & Spa is the Avello Spa & Health Club — a two-level, 8,000 square foot facility, featuring a state-of-the art fitness center in its health club.
- Designed to provide the hotel guests with stunning views towards the mountain ranges, the Avello Spa & Health Club features large floor-to-ceiling windows alongside the workout area. Facing west, the windows are exposed to sunshine throughout the afternoon. It was necessary to find a solution that would provide shade to the hotel guests in the health club, reduce the resulting heat gain, and maintain the design of the facility and views to the outdoors.
- The hotel selected Phantom Screens to create a solution for solving their need for additional shade in their spa and health club. Phantom Screens chose their oversized motorized Executive Screens to alleviate the heat and sun glare concerns. Phantom’s motorized screening solutions enable the hotel guests to enjoy a comfortable workout space and outdoor views from the windows without sacrificing the design or esthetics of the facility. According to Dave Packer, Director of Engineering of The Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler:
“Phantom’s screens have had a tremendous impact on reducing heat gain from the sun.”
