Overview

Warm and professional service, gourmet dining and numerous activities
It is pricey to stay here

With its perch at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, Fairmont Chateau Whistler is a ski lodge with a knack for luxury. After a day on Whistler's slopes (or, during warmer months, on the greens at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club), guests can soothe sore muscles in the fitness center's whirlpools or with a massage at Vida Spa. Hungry lodgers applaud the Fairmont's on-site eateries, especially The Wildflower's Italian-inspired menu. The dark wood- and leather-filled Mallard Lounge also wows diners with its cocktails and warm, après-ski ambiance. Recent lodgers appreciated the expansive views and cozy bedding within the guest rooms and suites. As for the rooms, guests can expect mountain-style decor and amenities such as free Wi-Fi. Members of the Le Club AccorHotels program can earn points for staying here.

Condé Nast Traveler

READ MORE 

Located at the foot of Blackcomb Mountain, this green-roofed property is removed from village noise, yet just minutes from the heart of the action and skiing on foot. Rustic Canadian antiques are scattered throughout.

Fodor's

READ MORE 

Just steps from the Blackcomb ski lifts, this imposing-looking fortress is a self-contained, ski-in, ski-out resort-within-a-resort with its own shopping arcade, golf course, and impressive spa.

Combining dramatic baronial lodge lobbies and comfortably palatial rooms, many with mountain views, the Fairmont is a handsome reproduction of the high-end chain's Canadian 'castle hotels.'
