“Solid 4.5 Star hotel in Whistler! I would recommend this one to others for sure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Great stay in Whistler this weekend at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Resort. The lobby is very well layed out, spacious and makes for a grand impression! The staff were very pleasant and helpful. When we arrived, an individual by the name of Brodie helped us with our car, luggage and asked us if we had any questions or needed help with anything... good first impression!

We were early and therefor couldn't get our room right away but it wasn't long before our room was ready and wow, fantastic view of the slope and very spacious! We were impressed and very happy that it only took a couple hours to get into our room (arrived at 11:30am - in our room by 1:30pm). Stephanie and Andrea at the front desk presented and represented the Hotel well, smiling as we talked to both of them upon arriving and checking in to get our keys.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our time in the Hottubs, pools, Spa facilities etc. The whole stay was really good. The only negative, the rooms still seem somewhat out dated with their furniture and walls and one of the valet / concierge members (won't mention a name) didn't help much at all. We were a little disappointed that we had our hands full of bags and stuff and yet he didn't offer to help and or assist in any way shape or form... not impressed with that person. I even tipped him to try and initiate some help and or be like thanks for bringing the car up (hint hint, can we get some help but that didn't work).

Overall, 4.5 out of 5 stars and I'd recommend others to stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a slope facing view room with a balcony! Well worth it as they have fireworks that go off at...

Amazing time! Perfect location! Small rooms but very elegant & inviting. Loved staying on the Gold floor with our own concierge, fireplace in our room, updated bathrooms (in comparison to non-gold floor rooms), great free breakfast, good amount of snacks throughout the day & free coffee & soft drinks. The gold floor was great however, the other rooms are a bit outdated. The staff-amazing!
Great vacation at an elegant & classy resort.

Pros:
Facility - A multi-million dollar facility on par with some of the best resorts in the world. I have stayed in a dozen Fairmont hotels in the U.S., Canada, and Bermuda and this hotel's public area's and rooms are first class. Great bedding and linens. Classic furnitire. Spacious bath with separate shower.
Service - Gracious hospitality at the restaurants. Kudos to the conccierge who scored great reservations and charged my iPad. Loved the ski valet and the energetic staff that were extremely helpful. Pool staff made a winter stay like a day in the Caribbean. Front desk was a bit lackluster and not memorable.
Location - You can't beat the amazing location of Chateau Whistler smack dab at the base of Blackcomb mountain and a short walking disatnce to Whistler Village, one of the best ski villages of the 20 ski resorts I have been priveleged to visit.
Con-
NOISE NOISE NOISE. No, not from the double insulated windows with total blackout drapes. No, not from the solid walls between rooms. No, the noise came from the doors that were not gasketed in rubber or a least a chintzy piece of foam. I could have stuck my finger in between the gap between the door and the doorframe. Every single door slam, conversation, cough, sneeze and screaming child was as if they were right in your room. I woke up in the middle of the night scared out of my wits thinking someone was in my room because the conversation was so clear. A walk down the hall you could hear every conversation and TV show. What a lack of privacy. The hotel manager should walk down the halls on a Friday evening and hear the cacophony of noises from each room. It was like a schizophrenics mad nightmare. Get with it Fairmont, a fairy tale location such as the Chateau Fairmont should not be marred by such obtrusive and inexcusable noise.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

this is the classic whistler hotel, well appointed and as close to the slopes as you can get. ski right up to the door. not as well located in terms of nightlife, as its a bit of a walk to the village. Rooms vary a lot in size, but are nicely decorated. Restaurant is a bit pricey, but so is everything else at this destination. The lobby bar is cozy and great for aprez ski. Well suited for conferences. The hot tub area might need updating soon, but the rooms are kept up to date. Service is very high quality, friendly and prompt.

Room Tip: there are some very small rooms; ask to switch if you get one.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights recently. The hotel also has the policy where if you book two rooms for a family the second room is 50% discount.
Everything about this hotel was amazing - the staff, the restaurants, the hot tubs, the ski valet, hot chocolates at the bottom of the slopes, the beds, the bath amenities.
We felt thoroughly spoilt at this hotel and I would recommend it to anybody who wants to stay somewhere special.

one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. the staff are very well trained. excellent services. amazaing stay and ski. the hotel is comfortably located at the Blackcomb and ideal for skier. the vallet servies provide you comfort. you dont need to carry your skies from the time you enter until you go to hit the slopes.
