Location - in the Upper Village. It's about a 14 min to the main Village. A few minutes' walk to start the trail to the Lost Lake. Room - I had a newly renovated room which was tastefully decorated. The shower had hydrotherapy oils that could be added. Found the shower pressure kind of weak though. You can open up to a tiny balcony for one to take in the view and fresh air. Gold Lounge - Being a Fairmont Gold member, I had access to the lounge. The food there is amazing and changes over every few hours 4x/day and the food there is different every day. Staff there are super friendly and helpful. Amenities - My fave place is the pool area! Just a bit of a maze trying to find my way there from my room. There's a good-sized warm outdoor pool that starts inside. Then there's a cooler lap pool that I loved to use to swim laps. And then there are 4 hot tubs! 3 outdoor (1 for adults only) and 1 indoor. There's also a co-ed dry sauna. Then in the change room, there's a steam room. I'm in heaven! The gym is next door and looked sufficient. I was there for a business conference and my only complaint was that the buffet-style meals there were just okay. I look forward to staying there again. Read less

Super clean, excellent facilities, great staff. I use the facilities weekly through a work pass and can only say nice things about the experience every time I visit. Love the live music vibe even on weekdays, the Friday events are also a go- to.

We recently spent 8 days at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler on the Fairmont Gold floor, 1 bd suite. The suites had been just renovated, and were exceptional.

We recently spent 8 days at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler on the Fairmont Gold floor, 1 bd suite. The suites had been just renovated, and were exceptional. New Bathrooms, beds, living rooms-all upgrades done in the Reno were flawless, including such unexpected perks such as the Spa Shower with aroma therapy pods-felt like we were in a high end spa! What sets the Fairmont apart from other hotels in Whistler(this was our 3rd stay in the Village), is the incredible personalized service. Hats off to Monica and Karla in the Fairmont Gold lounge who always greeted us by name, were sociable, professional and helpful. Jennifer also helped go above and beyond getting ice and offering medical attention to help my wife after she had a mountain biking accident, much appreciated. In every area, I including restaurants Wildflower and Portobellos, the food at the Gold Lounge, Bike Concierge and gym staff, the Fairmont excelled. We left Whistler much more relaxed and refreshed than when we arrived, always the sign of a great holiday. An absolutely outstanding stay, my wife and I look forward to returning to the Fairmont Chateau Whistler soon. Read less

From the moment we arrived the service we were offered was perfect. The staff is very well trained and welcoming and I really appreciated the experience. The hotel itself is beautiful, and situated far enough from the core of the village to be peaceful, yet close enough to walk to the village.
