Fairmont Chateau Whistler Rating: 4.5 Pearls
Upper Village, Whistler, British Columbia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Decor blends classic luxury and rustic mountain style
  • Upper Village location with great views, near Peak 2 Peak Gondola lift
  • Heated indoor/outdoor pools with underwater music
  • Excellent Northwest cuisine at Wildflower, and afternoon tea in the lounge
  • 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr.
  • Upscale spa, sauna, steam rooms, and four Jacuzzis
  • Pet-friendly services include dog sitting during dinner (for a fee)

Cons

  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Some lower-level rooms don't have great views
  • 15-minute walk to Whistler Village

Bottom Line

This 550-room Fairmont Chateau is perched amid Bavarian-styled buildings just outside of Whistler Village, with magnificent views and close proximity to ski lifts. The interior decor is typical of a Fairmont, but with a mountain-esque twist -- think crown molding meets exposed wooden beams and stone-tiled walls. The excellent Wildflower restaurant serves contemporary American fare, and the restaurants and bars in Whistler Village are a 15-minute walk away. The two eucalyptus steam rooms and multiple Jacuzzis make it easy for guests to warm up after a day in the snow.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

The lovely Upper Village location provides stunning views, and is a 15-minute walk to Whistler Village's restaurants and attractions.

The Fairmont Chateau Whistler's location about a mile outside of Whistler Village is perfect for visitors that want to be close to all the action of the Village without actually being in it. The location in Upper Village location affords stunning views, peaceful roads, and a few restaurants and bars along the stretch of Blackcomb Way that runs north-to-south through the area. But some won't like being removed from the main action in town.

  • 10-minute drive to Whistler Airport
  • 2-hour-20-minute drive to Vancouver International Airport
  • 8-minute walk to Whistler Peak 2 Peak Gondola lift, with 360-degree views of the valley
  • 15-minute walk to Whistler Village, full of dining, nightlife, shopping and activities
  • 15-minute walk to Village 8 Cinemas
  • 3-minute drive to Whistler Health Care Centre
  • 5-minute drive to Whistler Golf Club
