We elected to stay on the Gold floor with the concierge services and club lounge amenities. We were not disappointed.
When we arrived we asked the bell man where to check in for the gold floor, he directed us and then called the concierge to inform them of our arrival. We were warmly greeted by staff members who we either talked to or just simply passed in the hotel. Very well trained professional staff.
The concierge quickly checked us in showed us the club lounge and showed us our room. Our gold level room had a large washroom with 2 sinks, a jetted bathtub with a separate shower area. 2 terry robes and terry slippers. Also in our room, 2 umbrellas, safe, cozy interior design (really felt like our home) gas fireplace, 2 doors that you could open completely to a mini balcony for some fresh air.
The beds, sheets and duvet were supreme. The room was spotless (and we are picky). A personal welcome note, chocolates and bottled water were on our desk.
The gold floor with it's club lounge was a bit different than most with a cook awaiting to take our omelette order in the morning, a roaring fireplace, plenty of nooks to sink into while reading and some of the better afternoon canapes offered from 5-7. Highly suggest to wait until 6pm as most families and children will arrive at 5pm and leave by 6pm giving a bit more peaceful place to eat and have a drink at the honour bar. The club lounge was large enough to have several servers during the breakfast and evening hours to bring you more items or take away your dishes in a quiet professional manner.
The health club and in/out pool are wonderful to enjoy with whirlpools and saunas at the side. They even offer clothes and ipods for your use while in the health club.
We played checkers/chess and ate some amazing dim sum in their Mallard lounge while listening to a blues musician. It was a relaxing way to end our day.
The only complaint was the room service and their lack of attention to our order request.
If you choose to stay at the Whistler Fairmont and you can get a deal for the gold floor-get it. It's worth the splurge value.
