We had a ton of fun and enjoyed all the amenities The Fairmont had to offer. I was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and how clean the hotel was. It’s an easy walk from the hotel into Whistler village where we ate and shopped. The heated pool was a huge hit with the kids.

No where to go during covid, so spent 4 days here. Staff were friendly and service was very good. Parking: there is self parking available and free tesla charging which made it very convenient. Rooms: Stayed at their gold level floor. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. Large soaker tub with separate shower. The aromatherapy shower was a great addition. Gold level: Worth the upgrade. Good food, drinks and snacks all day. One thing I would suggest is to have people hand in the honor bar drink sheets to the concierge desk there instead of leaving them on the tables. I had people charge drinks to my room as people just fill in the forms and leave them by the bar area without anyone checking. So people could write any room number down. However, the wrong billings were taken care off easily by the concierge desk. Pool: The pool deck area is not large. If you come late, there are no chairs available. There was a steam room and sauna available which was great. One downside were kids jumping and splashing in the adults pool. Overall great stay. This is my new favorite hotel in Whistler. Read less

I have booked this trip for my partner, who was celebrating birthday. We could not miss with this trip. First time after year and half, we sat on the plane and we visited a place outside Alberta. The ride from Abbotsford, where we landed, all the way to Whistler via Highway from Sea to Sky, making random stops, was treat on its own. Our stay at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler was nothing short of pleasant, enjoyable and relaxed. Just like we got used to every time we stayed in any of Fairmont properties across Alberta. First contact with the hotel was very spacious and inviting lobby. Very well appointed with lot of space to sit and relax. We were checked in by Jacqueline, a lovely and cheerful agent, who showcased yet another example of Fairmont's warm hospitality. We have booked a deluxe king room and the room we were assigned to was absolutely amazing. Our room, #823, was located on the Gold floor and it was absolutely stunning, well appointed, spacious and clean. The sleeping area had, beside king size bed, a soft seating and sofa, which gave us a feel of a smaller living area. Bathroom, just like the rest of the room, was spacious and it had separated shower and tub, which is not something many hotels offer. We were welcomed with a treat left for my partner - a piece of a chocolate cake and personal note from the Manager. Such a lovely touch. What I liked about the room the most are windows on opposite side of the room, which provided us with lot of natural light and gave us opportunity to enjoy the view of mountains from two different sides. The room also had a very small balcony, which was too small to actually be outside, but it enlarged the room for me and I absolutely loved it. Our evening started with cocktails which we received as Fairmont members. Since I'm not big cocktail drinker and my partner is an avid cocktail lover, he was very happy to get a chance to taste two different cocktails before dinner. While we were in the Mallard lounge, the live music started and it gave a different vibe to the Lounge, that's appointed in old fashioned and countryside style. Our evening ended with dinner at the Wildflower restaurant. I was very impressed with hostess greeted us by wishing my partner a happy birthday. Seated next to the window, with not many people around, we appreciated the intimacy of the space as well as our server Holly, who was again - pleasant, enjoyable to talk to and very hospitable. Our three course dinner was delicious, even though my chicken was slightly overcooked. But that isn't something that would ruin my overall experience at all. Next morning we started at the outside pool. What an amazing way to start your day. As someone who is very particular with water temperature, I was very happy that the water was not cold. After refreshing time at the pool, we had breakfast, again in the Wildflower restaurant. Since it was fully occupied, the hostess offered to give us a call when a table gets available. After 20ish minutes of walking around the property, we were seated. My partner had craving for a smoked salmon in a croissant, which was not on a menu, but our server made it happen and that was amazing. My avocado toast and my partner's eggs Benedict were perfect. The most stunning part of our already amazing stay happened as we were packing our stuff to leave. We realized that we didn't try the chocolate cake that was on the coffee table. After being wrapped in a cellophane, on the desk the whole afternoon and all night, the cake was still so good and soft as if it was brought to us that very moment. An amazing end to our short but sweet first time ever stay at Chateau Whistler. As we were checking out and leaving toward the exit door, Jacqueline, the agent who checked us in, waived at us and wished us a pleasant journey to Fairmont Waterfront. How she remembered that, I don't know, but it shows why my partner and I, both avid travellers, stay at Fairmont hotel every time we decide to treat ourselves. Read less

This was our first experience with Fairmont under their new ownership. It was such a great staycation birthday and anniversary trip. They had impeccable attention to detail, very friendly staff, and the Gold Floor accommodations were worth every penny.

Many employees do not have that excellent cherry smile that most Fsirmont employees have. Read less
