We live in Vancouver and took advantage of the gorgeous weather to visit Whistler for a one night stay. We booked through Amex travel as part of the Fine Hotels and Resorts (FHR) program and wow did the Fairmont take good care of us. FHR, available through select American Express cards, allows for a number of great benefits including early & late check-out, room upgrades and more.
We checked in early and were greeted by a huge upgrade to a suite overlooking Blackcomb mountain. After we settled in, we were greeted by one of the staff with a welcome note and a welcome gift (a piece of birthday cake for my 4 year old son - I had mentioned the occasion to the concierge prior to arrival). The room was well-prepared for us including a crib and infant amenities for bathing our 6 month old. We visited the pool, hot tub and later sat for dinner at the Wildflower restaurant. The food and service was great. The King bed in the room was extremely comfortable and we slept well. Breakfast the next morning, again at the Wildflower, was a delectable buffet with attentive service and everything you could ask for for a sumptuous breakfast. We took in some skiing (the hotel's backyard is the base of Blackcomb) and were back in the hot tub later in the afternoon. Overall, this was extremely good value for money and a very high level of service at the Fairmont Whistler. Everyone we encountered, from the housekeeping staff to the concierge, were extremely helpful. We look forward to returning.
