Fairmont hotels always do things right, and their Canadian mountain resorts are the epitome of relaxed luxury. You can’t go wrong with any of the Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s 550 rooms, whether you’re here in winter or summer.
For the ultimate in luxury, upgrade to a suite on the Fairmont Gold floor. They’re all spectacular; mine even had a double-sided fireplace. Best of all is access to the Fairmont Gold Lounge and Concierge. Fairmont Gold goes beyond the already high Fairmont standard. Exclusive and personal, Fairmont Gold is known as “a hotel within a hotel”. The lounge offers a sumptuous breakfast, all-day beverages and snacks, an honour bar, early evening canapés, and, later, delicious desserts. Be forewarned — the service quality does make it difficult to go back to the regular Fairmont, as wonderful as it is!
Chateau Whistler entices guests with all sorts of winter and summer activities including an 18-hole golf course and practice centre, three tennis courts, BMW-branded bicycles, lawn games, board games, an extensive fitness centre, plus a ski concierge to help your slope-side activities (you won’t even have to carry your skis!).
There are five dining areas and the chef incorporates their own house-made honey and other ingredients from the roof-top gardens.
Try to plan your visit for a holiday: the Chateau Whistler’s “Wonder Maker” goes all out to create special events, particularly for families and kids.
