On the outside, Fairmont Chateau Whistler looks as if it could be an old European castle in the Alps, thanks to its setting at the base of Blackcomb Mountain. When you step inside, that chalet theme is even more present with wood beamed ceilings and stone floors in The Great Hall (aka the lobby). Guest rooms are cozy with mountain chic furnishings such as wooden chairs and earthy tones. As a whole, the décor seamlessly blends in with its alpine surroundings — and the views from the guest rooms only reinforce the fact. While it does feel very lodge-like inside, the Whistler hotel is far from a gimmick. It’s luxurious and lavish without ever feeling out of place in one of the best ski resorts in North America.
