This probably isn't a fair review as the Fairmont is my favorite hotel chain and I stay at these hotels several times a year. But I have to communicate what an amazing Christmas we had as a family this year at this great hotel.
There are so many little touches here - from the Christmas tree in our room, to the personal conceirge service before we even entered the hotel, to the great valet staff out front, the fabulous spa, the very entertaining sleigh rides ... I could go on-and-on about how this hotel just gets everything right.
From the moment we entered until we left they just took care of us. When we wanted the television in a different part of the room so the adults could watch while our child slept-- they moved it without complaint. We commented how pretty the Christmas trees were in the lobby and how sad we were to be missing ours over the holiday - and presto there was a tree in our room. We mentioned to our waiter that our 6-year-old might have issues waiting through a long Christmas dinner, and here comes a plate of treats for him to munch on. The waiters remembered our names every day at breakfast. The spa was amazing- my husband even got a pedicure.
I highly recommend the offsite Fairmont fondue restaurant. This was a highlight of the trip. Well honestly - there were too many highlights to mention.
The shuttle between the Fairmont and the mountains operated right on time. The property is ski-in/out for Whistler but Blackcomb requires a ride.
We also highly recommend the ski school for the kids. My son had never been on skis or a snowboard before- and now he cannot stop asking when we get to go again.
This is one top-knotch hotel. I cannot recommend it highly enough. We'll remember our 7-day stay for the rest of our lives.
