“Great location, good price”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

We stayed in Suite #504. The suite itself is very spacious and clean. It had everything we needed.

The lobby, public area carpets, elevator and walls need some refreshing, and staff can be a bit aloof. We had to ask them to come clean, which they did within the day.
The pool is somewhat on the small side, but plenty of towels and chairs.
Underground parking available, but expensive. 5 mins walk across the park to the Village.

The location cannot be beat! Right at the foot of the Blackcomb lifts. We've stayed at the Fairmont before (which is less than 20 steps away), but if location is your main concern, this property is half the price of what you'd pay there.

Overall, a very good stay.

I stayed here for two nights with two other adults. The blonde lady at reception was very friendly upon our check-in at the hotel. The lift was very efficient and the glass side provided a great view of the Blackcomb mountain goldola!

We were very pleased to see how spacious our room was. We were greeted by a marble-floored hallway, with a large mirror and a set of coat hooks. There were then two doors- one to the bedroom with ensuite, and the second leading into the living area, also with an adjoining bathroom. The kitchenette was very useful - included a small fridge, big Blanco sink, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, and teapot. Even the toiletries were good quality- Aveda soap, shampoo and condItioner.

The view from the room out of the bay window was beautiful. The room was also very quiet during the night, and the hotel was well positioned in the quieter upper village yet still a few minutes walk into the main area.

The only negatives were that the bed in the bedroom was too soft and seemed to slump into the middle. The Murphy bed (pulls down from the wall in the living room) was more firm. We went down to reception on several occasions to ask for more coffee. Each time, the night manager was either away from the desk or said he had run out of supplies at reception. We were finally successful on the 4th attempt!

Fantastic hotel, spacious and well-appointed rooms. Would definitely recommend.

This is a good location at the foot of Blackcomb but the hotel is now dated with a real need for some TLC. The staff are "phoning it in" and maintenance is spotty and if 1985 is your ideal this is the place for you! Carpet is dirty, elevators spotty and the decorations are passe' and in need of a good "scrubbing". Parking is pricey and there is no ski/bike storage, they say there is but there is NOT.
We won't return.

Dear Guest,

We are sorry that Le Chamois Whistler Hotel did not meet your expectations during your recent visit to Whistler. It is unfortunate that we were unable to help you locate our bike and ski storage during your stay. Our Bike Storage Room is located in the parking garage and our ski storage is provided onsite by Spicy Sports Rental to all hotel guests whether renting or bringing their own equipment.

Very comfy room: thought the necessity for two bathrooms in a one bd apt defeats me!! Room is well serviced, and we were lucky enough to get an end room with a view. Bed very comfortable, though furniture is a little shabby. I booked ski hire from home, and unfortunately we were initially double charged for this: we believe that has now been sorted! Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Communal areas are small, and hot tub is functional, though I have seen better ones, when staying in whistler. Location is all, however and the proximity of lifts is a definite plus.

We stayed in room #205 over the New Year holiday. The unit is nicely renovated and spacious, with a full kitchen. The location cannot be beat, and the Blackcomb side of the mountain is a great base for exploring all of the terrain. Ski storage at Spicy Sports, in the hotel building, is convenient, the staff was knowledgeable when we experienced an issue with a new set of bindings. There are a couple of great restaurant choices in the building, or very nearby in Blackcomb village. Room #205 is located on the second floor, and directly above a restaurant, however we did not find the noise level disruptive.

its about 50 meters from the Wizard chair lift on Blackcomb side. a few restaurants within 20 meter radius. we had a 1 bedroom with a large bed and a pull down bed with 2 baths. a bit tight but adequate for 3. no kitchen, but a sink, small frig, and microwave. they cleaned and made the bed, and changed towels every day. i think they also changed sheets. pool and hot tub is small but was never crowded. small gym with treadmill and eliptical. ski shop in the building for rentals. not extravagant but quite convenient.

breakfast next door at Dirk and Bernie was good. dinner at Milestones was reasonably priced with friendly service. There is sushi next door but didn't try it.
on this trip also age at Keg, Earl's, Ric's grill, chinese bistro, and a few others. Ric's was ok but poor service. Keg had good steaks. Earl was a nice bar / restaurant with good food. Chinese was ok. 21 steps kitchen was great. Garibaldi's Lift co at the mountain base has the best mushroom soup ever.

My wife and I stayed here as I had an event for work next door at the Fairmont in May 2011. Le Chamois was excellent value in for the Upper Village in Whistler at about half the price of the Fairmont. Parking was fairly cheap (by Whistler standards) at 18$. It has a rooftop pool and hot tub which were small, but had no one in them so it was great. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby in the upper village including two in the hotel. The room was very spacious with a hot tub right in the room, living area and bedroom. It is a 5 minute walk on a path to the lower village and all the shopping that has to offer. As well, while it was not ski season, there is ski in and out service when there is snow as you can see the BlackComb ski lift from the window of the rooms. I highly recommend this place as an alternative to the Fairmont if you cannot afford it. We paid 100$ a night.
