I have been in Vancouver on business and have been dying to make it to Whistler. This past weekend I was determined to make it and I had my heart set on The Fairmont. Well I am so glad I did because every minute between talking to reservations getting in my car from valet to realize they charged it for me and got me a bottle of water for the road was magnificently memorable! The service in general was wonderful but the suite amenities were even better. I even sleep with a fan at home every night and was able to get one brought to the room in the middle of the night when I woke up. Went back to sleep like a baby. But what really takes the cake (almost literally) is that on my drive up I got a text from their Guest Experience Manager, Stephanie looking forward to having me for my birthday! For a second I went, omg how did she know! It was a magical moment. I remembered just in conversation I mentioned it to my reservationist (and not at all in a, will you be celebrating anything with us this weekend Ms. Hagan kind of way). So Valerie, who took my reservation was cute enough to pick up on my birthday in conversation and make note in my reservation! So then, Stephanie and her team had a little something waiting for me in my room when I arrived. It was all totally unexpected and much appreciated. Since I am one of those people who LOVE TO CELEBRATE BIRTHDAYS...I just dont think it could have gotten any better. Read less

We stayed for three nights and got to enjoy the guided hike to Rainbow Falls with Rickie. What a beautiful hike, and Rickie made everyone feel included and special. He had lots of interesting information about the area, and was so fun to hang out with!

Fairmont quality is not in doubt. We love staying in a Fairmont, having had memorable stays in Toronto and Montreux (the latter of which was simply outstanding, the former only fractionally behind).

Fairmont quality is not in doubt. We love staying in a Fairmont, having had memorable stays in Toronto and Montreux (the latter of which was simply outstanding, the former only fractionally behind). It was the same here, with excellent staff and a tremendous service culture. I would also recommend the health club and spa. However - and here is the reason for the middle of the road score - this is a convention hotel, not somewhere to create wonderful memories (which Toronto and Montreux did). We had three nights and on every day there were swarms of people with their convention lanyards on all over the place. Nothing wrong with them, save that they dominate the bar area in the evening, so wave goodbye to the notion of a relaxing pre-dinner cocktail - the noise is too great from the hundreds of delegates trying to shout at each other to be heard over the live (and also loud) music (which we experienced every night). If you're going to a convention here, then enjoy, it'll be great. If you're not part of a convention, then not so great. And forget the bar, you won't get near it. Read less

We just spent 4 days here and the place with absolutely EXCELLENT. From the staff to the geographic location and incredibly beautiful grounds and lobby and most convenient to gondola and eateries and within a super park-like walking distance to the village. The 8th floor concierge were wonderful as was the stellar lounge with both atmosphere and superb food - morning - noon and evening. The room was spacious with a lovely view of the forest below and the beds were most comfortable and the bathrooms SUPERB FOR TWO! -I can't say one negative about this fabulous "5 star" hotel - worth every penny!

We were celebrating a birthday during our stay at the Fairmont and they made it super special. They checked us in early and gave us a corner suite on the 8th floor and prepared a personalized birthday card with some delicious chocolate cake to welcome us. We are huge fans of the lobster mac and cheese which they have taken off the lounge menu, but lucky for us one of the manager's approached us to see how our stay was and when he found out we were sad about the mac and cheese, not only did he make arrangements for us to enjoy it, he also comp'd the dish and our drinks. We are truly impressed with thier hospitality and service. Read less
