  • If you want to connect rooms there’s a $100 charge. 


Fairmont Chateau Whistler would have to be one of the biggest ski hotels in North America. At 550 rooms it’s so big that it even has its own hotel within a hotel – Fairmont Gold – with a separate check-in area, lounge and rooms.

Built in 1988, this hotel has been around for a while. All Fairmont hotels are designed in the style of a French chateau – and the sheer size of the Fairmont Whistler makes it feel almost like you’re staying in a castle. (Fairmont made its name from constructing equally large and spectacular hotels along the tourist railway lines in Canada).

Until recently, the hotel still had a very 80s vibe, with pink corridors and provincial-style furniture, however a recent refurbishment has brought it more in line with modern tastes.

It should be noted however that if you’re looking for peace and quiet you should try someplace else, as Fairmont Whistler is constantly hustling and bustling. But for a family that wants luxury facilities, several dining options, and the convenience of being close to everything (including the ski school), this is a great choice. Your kids will love the indoor/outdoor pool area, while adults can take advantage of the recently renovated gym. There’s also a lap pool with four large hot tubs in which you can soak your tired ski muscles.

The rooms and suites do not include kitchenette facilities, and the fridges are full of mini bar items – so you’ll need to rely on one of the many dining options in the hotel. Alternatively, many of Whistler’s fantastic restaurants are only a short walk away.

As you might expect from a hotel of such grandeur, the rooms are luxurious and the bathrooms equally so (although only the Fairmont Gold rooms have fireplaces). There’s a price difference between rooms with valley views and those that look towards the slopes. Pick one with a slope view if you must, but the valley view is really quite spectacular (and it’s the less expensive one).

Who should stay here

Fairmont Whistler is for families who want all the luxuries and facilities of a big corporate-style hotel, and who want to be close to the ski school, slopes, restaurants, bars and shops.
