Wonderful Service, but Rooms Need Help!

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 15, 2010

We only stayed for 1 night, however experienced the highs and lows! The service is great, from the parking valets (who drove us to the village so we wouldn't have to wait for the shuttle that was delayed), to room services, to the general staff. They were all great.

The hotel main areas are beautiful. The hotel is located at the base of the hill, so is perfect for skiers. However if you are looking for shopping and the village life, you need to stake the shuttle or walk 10 minutes.

The food is priced at what you would expect for a tourist hotel at the higher end of the scale. I will say that the $5.65 "Delivery Fee" on top to the 15% grat fee on room service...was excessive. The breakfast buffet is huge witth lots of great and yummy options...but come hungry because you need to eat the $30's they charge worth of food!!

Parking is $28 to self park and $33 for valet. Again, a bit high but on par with other hotels in the area.

The room was standard, and starting to look dated in many areas ESPECIALLY the bathroom. Our tub faucet did not work (not helpful with a 2 year old who loves his bath!), and the shower had parts coming off the shower head. The room needed paint and bit of love. Really, it was a 3.5 star room in a 4.5 star hotel.

Overall, a really nice hotel, but the distance to the village and where we wanted to be will impact our decision to return again

Unique Quality: The valet staff were AMAZING! Informative, helpful, and funny. Awesome group of people to welcome guests!

OK so we don't usually stay in places like this so it was a bit of a treat for us when we went. If you book on the whistler Blacomb web site and go for the last minute availabilities the 5 star option in the Fairmont (you'll actualy be booking your room blind as they don't tell you what hotel it is, just that its 5 star). Well for $129 in skiing season that's not bad. The Wine room Restaurant was a bit snooty but a 3 course for $39 was not bad. Sunday brunch is $20 which is good value.

Rooms are OK, obviously we got the most basic rooms. My Fairmont membership seemed to count for nothing and we got no free perks. Parking is expensive, almost $30 but then I guess that most people who stay here can afford that. All in all I was a bit dissapointed. The pool and spa were OK but quite busy. I'm glad we didn't splurge on the place as it really didn't feel like we were staying anywhere special. I did like it position by the ski slope but then the disadvantage is that its a walk to the shops in Whistler.

A Classic Chateau with all the Right Touches

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 13, 2007

The Fairmont Chateau is a beautiful hotel. My room featured an incredible view of the mountains, a gas fireplace, and a jacuzzi tub. The staff is perfect, from the concierge to housekeeping. I loved getting a weather report with my turn down service and having the ice bucket handled for me. Also, dining at the Chateau is a treat and their shops are wonderful.

Unique Quality: The views are wonderful and I appreciated being a quick walk from the Village. Plus, we were very close to all of the local activities and to the train station.

Directions: Whistler Village

Great Location for Blackcomb Mountain Skiing

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 19, 2004

The Chateau Whistler is mountain lodge and city hotel blended into one great resort. Located within the village, and next to the Blackcomb skilift, making the Chateau an ideal location to stay in, while in Whistler. Very comfotable rooms and good service from the employees. Everyone seemed happy, including me. :-)

Unique Quality: The view from the dining area is magnificent. You can relax and enjoy a great breakfast buffet, while checking out the lines at the ski lift. The large lobby is still cozy, and we even had a bear walk through to examine the front desk. The bear did not have a reservation, no cash, no credit card, so it turned around and left, much to the relief of all.

Directions: Upper Whistler Village near the Blackcomb Ski Lift.

$400

Unique Quality: This is the ultimate place to stay when visiting Whistler. An impressive Euorpean style chateua, this hotel is the place to be if money is no object. Everything is first class. There is a beautiful oak lined bar with a private cigar room for apres ski. They serve wonderful vodka martini's but buyer beware, as you would expect, everything here is expensive. If nothing else, every visitor to the mountain should stop by, tour the grounds, and have a drink in the bar.
