Bottom Line

The Four Seasons is one of the most luxurious resorts in Whistler, offering 291 spacious, tastefully decorated rooms, suites, and multi-bedroom residences, all with cozy fireplaces and quality amenities such as Nespresso machines. This five-pearl mountain retreat features a heated outdoor pool and three hot tubs, a top-notch fitness center and spa, and a steakhouse and bar. The location in Upper Village is a bit removed from the lively Whistler Village, but it's a short walk to the Peak 2 Peak Gondola lift up Whistler Blackcomb. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is the hotel's main competitor and has the added perk of an on-site golf course -- plus lower rates -- but it's not as stylish.

Luxury mountain retreat with chic interiors

This luxurious mountain retreat provides a chalet-style experience

This five-pearl hotel from the Four Seasons brand caters to those seeking a luxurious mountain retreat. It's a chalet-style experience, and full of luxe touches; cozy interior elements like lots of wood and exposed stone are accompanied by fine fabrics, beautiful art, and handsome furnishings, all swathed in warm lighting emanating from stylish fixtures. Natural materials abound and add a bit of rustic charm here and there, including potted tree limbs flanking an entrance, hefty stones serving as sculptures, and even a charming polar bear scene carved out of marble. Public spaces are luxuriously elegant in a minimalist fashion, yet also cozy and inviting, encouraging après-ski lingering and relaxation. 

A number of freebies, like daily wine tastings, s'mores at the fire pit, and hot chocolate in the lobby are a thoughtful touches that encourages camaraderie among guests. The clientele here is well-heeled (or well-booted), and includes both couples as well as families. Also, the hotel's ample event and meeting space means it is host to various functions, corporate retreats, and weddings.
