We had a Wonderful week at Fairmount Chateau Whistler. We had reserved a two bed room on the Fairmont Gold 8th floor, but we were upgraded to an Executive Suite by Peter. We are very grateful for the upgrade!
We have stayed at the Chateau once before and this time we wanted to try the Fairmont Gold with its own lounge room where they serve a complimentary breakfast buffet, and in the afternoon they serve canapés. In the lounge you can play games, chill and have a glass of wine, beer or complimentary coffee or sodas. I believe the lounge is nice if you feel a bit crowded in the regular room.
However, the regular rooms and the Fairmont Gold rooms are decorated the same, the difference is the personalized Gold service; for example, they have DVDs and Daniel delivered popcorn to our room. Tiffany was also a sweetheart and always very attentive and brought hot chocolate to our daughter every day.
Ok, so how is the rest of the Chateau? It is the best ski-in, ski-out I have stayed at. The rental store/ ski valet is in the basement. All you have to do is walk down in your loafers and ask for your ski-boots and then your skis, then walk outside and there is the chairlift.
The hotel also has a great after ski lounge with live entertainment. The pool and spa is nice, and they even have a separate pool only for laps. And "yes" they serve drinks in the hot tub :-)
The gym is ok with treadmills and pretty much all the machines you need.
The hotel offers several dining options such as The Portobello Cafe, the Mayflower, and the Grill.
The whistler village is just a short walk from the hotel and there you'll find plentiful of restaurants and bars for entertainment. There is also a grocery store, pharmacy, hardware, and more ski stores than you'll ever need.
The skiing in whistler is also the best. The slopes are almost always pristine, and there is slopes for every kind of skier or snowboarder. Whistler is my favorite resort of all.
Best of luck,
