My wife,daughter and myself stayed at Chateau Whistler for a 1 week ski break from 10th March. This was our 2nd stay-it was so good 1st time we had to come back!
The staff were extremely courteous and helpful at all times and as we were celebrating our daughters birthday during our stay we received a lovely room upgrade to a slope side view. As my wife does not ski this was a definite bonus as it was fascinating to watch the activity outside.
The room was kept spotlessly clean throughout our stay and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was slightly darker than we like and could be better lit.
The spa and outdoor Jacuzzi's were lovely and very quiet during the day although there were large numbers of children in the early evening as it was Canada's 2 week spring break-so if you don't want children around don't choose these weeks.
The staff in the ski room and the valet ski service was excellent-much better than anything in europe. Picking up our skis was stress free and as it is truly ski-in ski-out it was very easy access to the slopes. You do however need skis suitable for powder to really enjoy this area and the standard of the rental equipment was excellent so it is better to hire than take your own unless they are for powder. It is less sunny than in the Alps in March but the superb skiing more than makes up for it.
As we booked our stay in advance we had spending credit at the food areas and had lovely breakfasts in Portobello Deli for free. They also do very good sandwiches at lunchtime but its a shame it closes at 5.00pm.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone and the skiing was magnificent-epic powder

Love the location!!! It is a ski in and out hotel, can't be more convenient than this for a family with small kids. I have 2 small kids, I just drop them off at the ski camp and daycare which are next to each other in the same building next to the blackcomb lift which is right outside the back of the hotel. The hotel backside has a ski equipment drop off service so you don't even have to drag anything anywhere close to your room. It takes me very little time to get ready in the morning with the 5 and 2 yrs and ourselves before hopping on to the lift. The pool and hottubs are great for after ski relaxing which we used daily to the delight of our kids. Breakfast in the hotel flower restaurant is excellent!! And the hotel shuttle takes you to the village every 10 mins so you don't miss all the restaurants and shopping.

For the past week we have stayed in 3 hotels and now have come to our 4th. 3 of the 4 hotels have been Fairmount hotels and the other two so surpass the whistler chateau in several ways. First of all, the greeting at the front desk was very perfunctory and when our reservation was not found on the system we had to produce our confirmation and then everything had to be reentered. Service has been mediocre and the staff doesn't seem to care. We have been in the lounge twice and have been ignored both times. We are staying on club level and our room is supposed to receive turn down service but that did not happen. Dinner was fine but again service was slow even though the dining room was not crowded. After experiencing the service at the pacific rim hotel for the past two nights we can make a good comparison and the chateau is nowhere in the same league when it comes to service and hospitality.

Dear Guest,

We were very disappointed to read that your stay fell short of your expectations. The level of service that you describe is certainly not indicative of the warm hospitality we pride ourselves on delivering at The Fairmont Chateau Whistler. We would encourage you to contact our Front Office Management team at cwrfoleaders@fairmont.com to discuss your stay in greater detail. We hope to have the opportunity to restore your faith in our hotel.

Sincerely,

The Fairmont Chateau Whistler

We booked a last minute stay at Chateau Whistler over Easter Weekend (April 7). We had a room with two queen size beds on the third floor (on the side away from the pool). The room was very nicely decorated and very comfortable for our family of 4. It was very quiet on this side. Some of the extras we didn’t expect included
• Coffee maker with free coffee (at least 4 packs) with creamers in fridge.
• Kettle and tea bags.
• Small fridge to store our own drinks/food.
• Spacious bathroom with tub and shower separate. We used the tub to hang up bathing suits.
• Enough table space for 4 of us to eat in our room.
We used the hot tub and pool after skiing. It was great. They have indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, but we used the outdoor one as it was a nice day. We also saw a nice exercise room but did not use this.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the pool if you would like some quiet.
