“Great position for skiing, great service”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for a week with a friend for a skiing holiday. We were thrilled when we got such a great rate on a highly rated hotel through our British airways booking.
We arrived early evening and were initially put in a double room, despite the original request for a twin.
We were taken to the room, and just as we started settling in we were moved to a twin queen room.
This was just perfect for us, with two huge beds and a view straight on to the slopes and the lift.

The room was nice, with a decent sized bathroom, lovely complimentary toiletries and the great view. The only downside was the heating/air con in the room. Heating was via recirculated air, as was the air con, which gave us both sore throats and raspy coughs. Tho, we are aware that is just the nature of this type of heating system, we just dosed up and carried on.

The ski service here was fantastic. Wv pre booked our ski hire and passes and were thrilled that all this was downstairs in the hotel. We were able to go down In our ski gear, pick up our boots from the valet, then get our skis from another valet, and walk out the doors, straight onto the piste and right next to a lift. Amazing! This close proximity made it very simple for us to return for lunch, or a short drinks break and get straight back out on to the slopes in the afternoon. We will only look for ski on/ ski off hotels after this experience as it was superb!

The bar and restaurants in the hotel were also really good.
We treated ourself one night to the grill house. It was quite expensive but was well worth it. The steak was fantastic and according to my wine officianado friend so was the wine recommended to her. Service here was also great.

We ate breakfast in the adjacent restaurant a few times,but found the buffet robe a little expensive considering we only wanted a European sized breakfast and not the humongous 'all you can eat' extravaganza. The a la carte options were nice and a lot more reasonable.

We ate at the mallard for lunch a few times, and also had drinks here. Again, it was quite expensive but we had very good service and the food was pleasant, with the added convenience of being in our hotel.

The best place to eat in the hotel was near the ski shop downstairs, and served make your own sandwiches. This was fab and very reasonably priced for a monstrous sandwich that would fill any hungry tummy.

We also used the spa on the last day and I must say, I had one of the best massages ever from Sarah. If you go definately ask for her! She found knots I never knew I had.

Overall, we would definately return to this hotel as apart rom it being a little on the expensive side, we would only be in whistler to have an extravagant holiday so you really must just treat yourself, and her you can do it well!

Stayed February 2014, travelled with friends

While at a conference stayed at the Chateau. It's showing signs of age and in Whistler customer service is always a challenge. The day I arrived there were three trainees at the desk with one trainer so check in was slow. My room card needed re-magnetizing twice. Parking was $35 per night. However, wifi was reliable, (free with presidents club membership) bed comfortable and the food, while pricey, was on time and freshly prepared. Good for conference and event travellers and near the foot of Blackcomb it's not bad for skiers during the Spring season.

Typical upscale Fairmont hotel. (I was there for a conference) Big rooms, everything you'd expect on site. Excellent pool & hot tubs. Parking is very expensive. I parked in the free public lot; just a 10 min. walk. Restaurants and bars also expensive (as expected); we ate nearby. Location is much quieter than the main village, but not as convenient either.

Recently stayed at the Fairmont Chateau, firstly what a terrific location with a ski lift within a two minute walk and lots of snow outside the hotel. The Hotel amenities are first class, service very good and they even had an ouside heated swimming pool. Room was perferc, snow covered mountains viewed from the room, twin Queen size beds which were a deam to sleep in, in effect , the room had everything on could want including Starbucks coffee in the percolator. I've stayed in quite a few hotels and this one takes some beating.
