Fairmont Chateau Whistler
Set against the towering backdrop of Whistler’s Blackcomb mountain, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler looks for all the world like a modern fairy-tale castle—albeit one with a classic ski lodge interior, huge, high-ceilinged lobby spaces, and warming fireplaces. Opened in 1989, this is one of Whistler’s heritage properties. As the ski resort’s only ski-in/ski-out Blackcomb mountain hotel, it’s a magnet for winter sports fans; the parade of dedicated powder hounds has included Hollywood—and actual—royalty, such as Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Prince Edward. The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is also a popular LGBTQ wedding venue, sports Whistler's only hotel golf course, and includes the largest conference space for a hotel in the area. It also has numerous restaurants and bars. The property is decorated in typically understated Fairmont style—think neutral shades and plenty of comfortable soft touches—but it stays fresh with a rolling refurbishment program for guest rooms. All the mountain suites and penthouses were fully renovated in 2015.

I’m always impressed how many kids are teeming around the Fairmont when I visit. The venerable luxury hotel, perfect for couples, is also ideal for families. Located in the Upper Village within easy access to the main village, Blackcomb Glacier and both the Squamish-Lil’Wat Cultural Centre and Audain Art Museum, the brand new Alpine Suites easily accommodate four. The Mallard Bar remains as popular as it was when a nation’s entire sports federation would encamp here during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Should you be feeling especially patriotic towards the maple leaf, order the “Canada 150” in celebration of the nation’s susquicentennial, a cocktail blended tableside with Vancouver Island’s Sheringham Distillery gin and hand-pressed jams. The gold relief maple leaf is yours to keep.
