We have stayed a few hotels in Whistler over the years and in 2011 switched to the Four Seasons,but in 2012 are back at the chateau.
There is good and there is less good. the ski in ..ski out is the best . The breakfast restaurant is great (the place downstairs has become a nasty cafeteria for local staff and people for whom the fast paper-wrapped food is only reason to be there ) opposite the front door however is a good small breakfast place which if you want to alternate to save money.has friendly staff and good breakfast food..We recommend that too.
The bar is exceptional.huge yet cozy..they always remember your name .....however not cheap but just perfect after dinner( or before if you keep and earlier schedule)
The jaccuzzis outside are less great and seem to have seen better days,but they serve the purpose and there is a server who delivers drinks in the tub.
the four seasons is not hillside so makes up by collecting your skis at the foot of the slopes and giving you your boots/shoes if you need them......both Whistler Mountain and BlackCombe. Since the Chateau is at the foot of Blackcombe if does not offer this.so if you come to the foot of Whistler and want to go for lunch, Four Seasons folk have their shoes and you walk in your ski boots.....you are thinking ..I can live with that......but the luxury market is won with that kind of stuff!they should think about it...
Another thing..the shuttle bus is great..never too much trouble...I know I'm comparing..but this is not true of them all......
The only place to stay........
