It was our first visit to Whistler. Flew into Vancouver, drove the amazing Sea To Sky Highway, and was delighted to arrive at this beautiful property. The mountain views are amazing and hiking trails were fun. Although known as a ski destination, there's plenty to do in the warm weather. A highlight was taking the gondola, right outside the hotel door, up Blackcomb, and then across to Whistler. Spectacular scenery and great hiking with wildflowers in bloom. Played several rounds of golf. Also took advantage of the Yoga classes. We had a room that looked out on the mountain, and also the lifts and some shops. It was spacious yet had the cozy lodge feel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Had good food in the restaurants, and liked the bar in the evening, which had live music. Had a great time in the mountains of Canada, and would love to go back to the Fairmont! Read less

We were in Whistler to attend a conference held at the Chateaux Whistler, and given that Fairmont hotels in Canada are amongst my favourites in all of the world, I was excited to have an opportunity to stay. We were greeted by the doorman/bellman warmly. They looked after our luggage and car without worry. Check in was amazing. Just before we got there, their system had a rare crash. They were apologetic, calm, accommodating and looked after us. Free drinks and food in the lobby bar while we waited. When it was clear they could not resolve this quickly, they manually checked us in and we were off to our room. WOW. The room is gorgeous, warm, spacious. If I could ask for anything it would be for better lighting/brighter lighting as it was hard to see when we were ironing clothes for special events. I had the opportunity to work out in the fitness facility and it was great. Lots of fitness machines and well stocked workout facility with towels, water and more readily available. I used it twice in our 3 days. The Spa was also wonderful. Indoor/Outdoor pools (I love them) with warm water, a lap pool, many hot tubs, and servers bringing you food and drinks while you relax were lovely touches. The steam and sauna's were spacious and clean. I really liked this place. My wife enjoyed a massage and she said it was wonderful, if a bit crazy expensive. The food and beverage service provided amazing breakfast, lunch and suppers for the conference that were delicious and perfectly prepared. I loved our stay here and look forward to returning.

We said we weren't going back to the Fairmont after our last experience there, but the couple we were traveling with wanted us to give the Fairmont another chance so we did. And this time we weren't disappointed. We stayed on the gold floor again and were in a better room..the shower worked this time and the bathroom in general was in much better condition...the room itself still needs a renovation but it was much better than last time. What we really love about this place is that they welcome dogs. There was a dog bed, dog dishes, and even some dog treats in our room when we checked in, which is a very nice touch. The gold floor is worth the extra money as you check in up on the 8th floor and not in the lobby so we avoided the line up there. The only negative of the gold floor is the price of the alcohol in the lounge. I would highly recommend you do what we did..bring the alcohol with you and just go to the lounge for food. Overall it was a positive experience and we would go back again. Read less

What a wonderful staff. No exceptions. The rooms are standard rooms as this is an older hotel but they are clean and well taken care of. No complaints at all.

What a wonderful staff. No exceptions. The rooms are standard rooms as this is an older hotel but they are clean and well taken care of. No complaints at all. Drain was slow one day and fixed within no time. The hotel itself is magnificent. Lobby, ground, everything. The restaurants are expensive but the staff are attentive without hovering and they are convenient. What makes this hotel 5 star is the majestic nature of it and the staff. From the gentlemen who take care of the valets, and drive the shuttles to the front desk staff who always have a smile and are always patient. Wonderful stay. Thank you everyone ! Read less
