My wife and I stayed 7 nights over the December holidays and I can say that I’ve seen a huge improvement since we had stayed there the previous summer. The property has taken the time to make the necessary changes to bring this particular Four Seasons up to the standard this hotel brand is known for.
Here is an overview of what we experienced:
1 – First off the staff. We found the staff to be attentive throughout our hotel experience, from the valets to the bus drivers to the spa. They were gracious, attentive, and courteous.
2 – 5280 restaurant and bar – I think this restaurant and lounge suffer from a bad location and poor set up but that being said, we found both to be much improved. First, the lounge. It changed over to a gastro-pub theme and the food was a little pricey but very good each time we ate there. The bar staff was knowledgeable and friendly, recognizing us, remembering our drink preferences, etc…We had our Christmas Eve dinner at 5280 and it was tremendous – a huge improvement from the summer in both service and food. We constantly have cravings for the chestnut soup and their preparation of sablefish was amazing. The lounge still needs to add some life and light to it – hopefully they’ll make the investments to do both.
3 – The room – we stayed in a suite and loved the location, view, etc…The room had all the right amenities and was definitely upgraded recently.
4 – Concierge/Ski Concierge/Shuttle – The lifts are a quick 5-minute walk from the hotel to the Four Seasons ski concierge at the base of Blackcomb. This definitely beats having to take a shuttle and is the next best thing to ski in/ski out you can find. Although busy the ski concierge was efficient in getting me my gear and storing it. The hotel Concierge was extremely helpful in getting us reservations anywhere we needed to go and the shuttle was always quickly available both ways.
5 – Spa/Hot tub – 3 or 4 hot tubs available all the time. They were never crowded and the steaming hot chocolate provided by the server rocked. As for the Spa, my wife has been to several high end spas across the country and found this one to be relaxing and low key, in a good way. The specialists were professional and didn’t push their products too hard like many spas do.
We will definitely stay at the Four Seasons Whistler again and hope they continue to up hold their new standards.
