Fairmont Chateau Whistler

A classic luxe lodge in any season

Fairmont Chateau Whistler echoes the style of Canada’s grand railway hotels, offering classic luxury for a mountain getaway. Outside the bustle of Whistler’s main village, the property is a short walk from the slopes on the Blackcomb side of Whistler Blackcomb resort.

From the soaring wood-beamed ceiling in the lobby to the 550 guest rooms, the hotel exudes a traditional mountain lodge feel, whether you visit during the busy ski season or the equally in-demand warm-weather months.

The hotel’s pool complex is one of Whistler’s nicest, and should skiing, snowboarding, zip-lining, hiking, canoeing or any of the mountain town’s myriad adventurous pursuits provide insufficient activity, you can work out in the spacious fitness facility.

The onsite dining spots range from the posh Grill Room serving steaks and seafood to casual cafeteria-style Portobello to the Mallard Lounge, perfect for après-ski and evening cocktails.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Can’t decide what to do? The Fairmont’s Whistler Experience Guide team organizes daily activities, from guided hikes and cycling tours to museum experiences and beer tastings.
  • Just because you’re in the mountains doesn’t mean you can’t take a dip in style. The health club complex features an indoor-outdoor swimming hole, a heated 60-foot adults-only lap pool, four whirlpool tubs, a eucalyptus steam room and plenty of lounging space with views of the surrounding peaks.
  • If you don’t feel like hitting the slopes, get your fitness fix by joining one of the twice-daily yoga sessions or an aquatic aerobic class. The property also has two tennis courts.
  • If you love doughnuts or just have a nagging sweet tooth, take a snack break at the Portobello eatery. The maple-bacon doughnuts are a specialty here.
  • Fairmont Chateau Whistler provides complimentary valet service for ski and snowboard gear, bikes and golf clubs, storing and delivering your equipment when and where you need it.

Things to Know
