This my family's second time back to the Four Season's Whistler. We are all incredibly impressed with the resort on every level. A few people who deserve special mention are the Fornt Office Manger Carmine and the Ski Concierge Fiona. However, all staff members have been incredible and are clearly dedicated to providing the most outstaning hotel/resort experience for their guests and exceeds all expectations (even those for other Four Seasons).
Our first visit here was 11 months ago and although overall fantastic there were some service glitches which have since clearly been corrected.
Food and beverage services are outstanding and I highly recommend Side Cut for dinner (even if you are not staying at the Four Seasons). Additionally, the Fifty Two 80 Bistro & Bar is a terrific retreat for lunch or even dinner.
Rooms are very spacious and immaculate. Housekeeping obviously takes pride in their work and does a terrific job at twice daily service.
The staff goes out of their way to identify their guests and address them by name. Little details are remembered by all and this is impressive.
One of the best features of this hotel for the skier or snow boarder is the ski concierge. I have stayed at other ski resorts which boast a ski concierge, but are no competition for the level of service, graciousness and kindness offered by the Four Seasons.
Some have commented on their reviews of this resort that the Four Seasons Whistler is not truly a ski in/ski out resort. While this is true, it is not a drawback. It is a short walk from the hotel to the ski concierge. Additionally, ski lift tickets and rentals can be handled by an amazing staff on-site at the hotel. There are actually not any true ski in/ski out resorts in Whistler like in other cities (i.e. Ritz Carlton Beaver Creek) so the comments about this not being ski in/ski out is moot given no true resorts of this type in Whistler. The Chateau Fairmont is right up against the mountain and next to the lifts, but does not have a ski valet. Additionally, their rooms are old, small, and musty compared to the Four Seasons and the resort is not nearly as exclusive. The Westin is a good option in the Main Village, but they charge for their ski valet (I believe) and does not offer the luxury and service of the Four Seasons.
The Upper Village is a great location and away from the craziness of the main village. However, the Main Village is less than 5 minutes away by frequent shuttles and/or the courtesy Mercedes SUVs offered by the Four Seasons.
Overall I would strongly recommend the Four Seasons Whistler as the best and only luxury option for the discriminating traveler wanting the best of the best. There is no comparison. If there were a five star plus or six star rating I would award this to the Four Seasons Whistler. My stay is not over yet, but felt compelled to write a review for other travelers coming to the Whistler/Blackcomb Resort area. Bottom Line - If the Four Seasons Resort Whistler is within your budget don't think twice - BOOK IT! One last tip. I go between my AMEX Platinum/Black for travel reservations using Fine Hotels & Resorts. Booking this way affords you many benefits including breakfast for two daily, a food credit, guaranteed 4pm late check-out (a big plus!) and possibly an upgrade upon check-in if available. However, I can't imagine any room being a bad room/location in this resort.
