In Whistler the top two luxury hotels are generally considered to be Fairmont and Four Seasons, however since the 2019 renovations there is no contest whatsoever, Four Seasons is now a significantly superior property. I am normally not a regular at Four Seasons hotels because their lack of loyalty program makes it less of an ideal fit for me, but even as Accor Diamond guest Fairmont cannot deliver anything close to Four Seasons so in the luxury segment in my opinion Four Seasons should be the choice in Whistler. Service pre-arrival was superior at Four Seasons than Fairmont. Since I was hotel hopping I informed FS in advance that we would be transferring from Westin. I asked if they could inform us when our room was ready, and if they could pick us up from Westin. On the day of check-in they proactively contacted me by e-mail as promised, and their van was at Westin’s reception on time. As hotel occupancy was low we were able to get our room before 1pm; in contrast, Fairmont never responded to me when I asked at what time our room would be ready, and when we showed up at 3pm we were told check-in would be 5pm even though the hotel was not anywhere close to full the night before (Fairmont intentionally keeps many rooms unsold due to covid). I booked the FS entry level room type called “Resort Room” and received a 2-category upgrade to a Deluxe room which was more generous than the normal 1-category upgrade for Four Seasons Preferred Partner bookings. Post renovations, the room at Four Seasons is hugely superior to the aging, small, and depressing room at Fairmont. The room at FS was beautifully designed with a suitable feeling for a ski resort including horizontal wood blinds in the windows, a balcony, and a fireplace, unlike at Fairmont. The only mild negative is that the balcony was only private on one side, if one of our neighbors was sitting at their outdoor table they would be quite close to us because our balcony was on the left side of our room and their balcony was on the right side of their room. The bathroom renovations were also well done and I liked the stone walls. One issue is that the sinks were a bit too close to the mirror and felt like we had to extend and reach a bit. The room could be suitable for 4 guests because there was a sofa-bed in front of the TV and the room overall was quite spacious including a large walk-in closet. The total area of the room was roughly 50 square meters which is better than at Fairmont (37 sqm). Even though we did not have a suite at FS, the room was not very different in size compared to the suites at Westin. In-room dining was decent and in fact superior to Fairmont based on what we ordered. Breakfast was available either in the restaurant or in the room which was a nice choice to have, similar to Fairmont. The menu was not exactly cheap for example the vegan wrap was excellent but at 46 CAD it was a bit pricey, but the avocado toast was very good and worlds apart from the sad looking avocado toast we also ordered at Fairmont just a few days prior. Overall Four Seasons is a solid ski resort, the room looked great, it was spacious, dining at this property was excellent, and while the location is not the best they provide a shuttle without a “resort fee” like Fairmont does. FS beats Fairmont is most aspects and is not always more expensive, and even if it was, I think it’s worth paying extra for it. FS provides a luxury experience in ways that Fairmont does not so it should be the obvious choice for people looking for the best Whistler has to offer. Read less

I was beyond impressed with everything at this hotel. It’s very cozy, the customer service is outstanding. Valet was quick and easy, the beds were so comfortable and the rooms immaculate. I also have the best ribs I’ve ever had from room service. Unbelievable stay. I would go back again just for the experience.

...with the restrictions of travel during Covid19, we have limited our destinations and family getaways to a minimum - we chose a single evening at Whistler Four Seasons for its usual impeccable service level...Prior to arriving I inquired if we request a cookie to be left out for our son as this service was previously complementary. I was told that due to COVID I would be charged close to 20.00 as the charge would have a delivery fee added. On arrival we did check in early but found it strange that only one of our party's temperature was checked. When we ordered room service the 30 min menu could not be ordered on Saturdays(?) Our dining at Sidecut did not meet those brand level expectations. We were staying October 17th. We made reservations for 6pm dinner and then informed 615pm later by text and phone, a minor change...then originally seated in hallway outside a bright white lit art gallery opposite the elevator as usual dining was room was under upgrade...then upon our request to another table moved to another table outside Ballroom B...this table was in a hallway in the hotel in a room with little ventilation, a poor view and "fake" table candles, a very odd makeshift dining room setup for a marquee Four Seasons. Then steak dinner was overcooked, during dinner was bumped as staff reached into closet to alter sound system during dinner...overall a low level dining experience that has me looking towards alternate Whistler locations for getaways and visits... all of these items fell well below my hopeful one night getaway to Whistler...

Can't really say anything negative whatsoever at all. From the moment we arrived the staff were all so polite and friendly. Valet was easy and the check in was quick even with COVID protocols. We arrived early and wandered around until the room was ready. The room itself was amazing. So much space, and the bathroom was huge with a nice deep soaking tub. The rooms were immaculate and the amenities spot on. We did room service breakfast x 2 since it was included in the fine hotels deal and it was so delicious. While it is a bit pricey if paying entirely I'd say it's worth it to splurge at least once. The hot tubs were very comfortable outside. We did not eat at the restaurants for dinner so cannot comment. The other service which is fantastic is the shuttle/car service. Pick up and drop offs essentially anywhere in town. We'll for sure be staying again when we are back in Whistler and I'd recommend you do too so long as it doesn't break the bank too much. Read less

Came here for one night... decided to stay another night. Room was impeccable and staff was amazing. I would recommend the restaurant too. Although we’re all dealing with Covid hotel made an effort to make it an uninterrupted stay. Simon at check in was great! Amazing!!!
