This was our first time to Whistler and to a Fairmont property. Excellent across the board. Our initial contact was with Sue Bjorkman who did a masterful job of working out the details of our stay. Next were Ian & Jo Ann at the concierge desk who took care of arranging our transport from Vancouver to Whistler & back, followed by lift tickets, ski rentals, and finally dinner reservations. The hotel seems to employ only smiling friendly people eager to help out their guests at every turn. The location, right at the base of Blackcomb seemed to be the best anywhere in Whistler.
The absolute best part of our stay was the ski valet. In the basement is the ski rental shop where they will outfit you and then keep your boots at the boot storage and your skiis at the ski storage. It's great to walk downstairs in your shoes, trade for your boots, pick up your skiis and head out the door to the lift. Literally put on your skiis and get into the lift line. While this sounds great, they took it one step further by having a small tent set up outside when you return complete with Hot Chocolate. Simply hand them your skiis and off you go to Apres-ski!
Great people, great hotel. If only the skiing were better. Still a very special place to go.
