The bed was very comfy. Views were amazing. Food was delicious. Our 3rd Fairmont we stayed at on our trip and felt this Fairmont was our best overall. Everything was within walking distance but a courtesy or car bus was readily offered. Thanks to Luke at front desk.

We love the Fairmont and the Chateau Whistler did not disappoint. We had our puppy with us so we were pleased the check in process was such a breeze and we could get into the fabulous room right away. In the room, treats for both ourselves and our doggie awaited us as well as a doggie bed. The Fairmont gold room was very nice and spacious. It had a separate sitting area with a couch, comfy chairs , a separate TV and the double sided fireplace that also led into the bedroom. The bedroom was small but it had a great view of the mountains and a comfortable bed. The 2 way fireplace was a nice feature and made the room very cozy. We were not crazy about the placement of the TV over the fireplace at the side of the room - you could only watch it from the bed if you were on your side or if your neck was cranked in the awkward way - but it was a minor nuisance. The bathroom was spacious with a big soaker tub, double sinks, separate enclosed toilet room and a very cool essential oil shower which was the first time we had ever seen this feature at a hotel. The service throughout the hotel was very good - everyone was friendly and efficient. The Gold Lounge service for breakfast was sometimes slow - the used plates should have been cleared off the table way faster than they were especially since this particular buffet was served in very large bulky cast iron dishes that did not fit on the tray or table easily. Again just a minor nuisance , but faster service or more servers would have been nice. The Mallard lounge was very nice - we were pleasantly surprised with both the drinks and the food here. The spa area was nice but the kids in every area outnumbered the adults 4 to 1, so it was not relaxing at all. In fact, I don’t think I have seen so many kids at any pool / spa area hotel anywhere else - they were in the pools both outdoor and indoor, they were in the hot tubs and they were running in and out of the sauna constantly. The Ayurvedic treatment in the spa was amazing, very relaxing and cleansing although it was not exactly as described and it missed a key component that was supposed to be included. Also, I find it awkward to have to walk through the front lobby and next to the lounge in our robes after the massage but that’s just me perhaps. Overall it was a great stay and we would definitely stay here again Read less

Oner of the best hotels we've stayed in! Attentive staff, from check in, to communication via text regarding more coffee brought to our room, to the concierge recommending running trails, it was all top notch. The rooms are luxurious and quiet. Perfect stay.
