This is a big luxury resort hotel. We had a room with two queen beds which was well appointed and large enough for both of us and our two young children. The Blackcomb lift is just a stone's throw from the lobby. The main village is a short hike away. The spa, pool and hot tubs are great. I think I counted three hot tubs, two of which are outdoors. The staff are cheerful, courteous and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning soon.

My husband and I are frequent visitors of Whistler, but had never stayed at the Fairmont. We got an excellent last minute rate, so we decided to give it a try. Lobby and rooms were graciously appointed despite the hallway's floral wallpaper that suggested that Princess Di was on her way. The pools are some of the best in Whistler, and the staff was exceptional. Ultimately, we prefer the location of the Pan, but The Fairmont is a good choice for spring skiing when only Blackcomb Gondola is open.

We had a wonderful stay - from the early check in to late check out to a room upgrade, the front desk could not have been more accommodating.

Drinks and dinner in The Wildflower were on a par with Araxi, in fact the wild mushroom soup at Wildflower was way better than the cream of squash at Araxi. Drinks were better at the Fairmont, too.

Sunday brunch was fantastic, and we did not find the pools or hot tubs at all crowded before noon. We'll be back, I hope, to one of Whistler's top places to stay.

the service and staff can't be beat. The food is ok. The location was perfect. The rooms had much of outside noise. Bring earplugs.

The outdoor pools were filled with too many kids running rampant

The Farimont Chateau Whistler is the embodiment of skiing and Canadiana. Gorgeous hotel, helpful staff. The Mallard Lounge is amazing for Apres. The pools and hot tubs are the best in Whistler for people with or without families. Warm and inviting.

Great location for this hotel, its looking a little worn in some of the rooms but generally what you would expect from a Fairmont Hotel. Lovely bar and open fire which is just what you need after a day on the slopes.

From the moment we pulled up in front of the hotel the friendly service, which was not stuffy or too formal, fit my hopes perfectly for the experience.

Highlights:
Swimming in the lovely heated lap pool while snowflakes fell softly around me, and then warming up in the steam room and sauna.

Relaxing on a couch in the lounge, cuddled up with my partner in front of the fire, sipping tea.

Savoring a late night room service delivery of chocolate fondue by special request.
