Fodor's Expert Review Fairmont Chateau Whistler Resort

4599 Château Blvd., Whistler, British Columbia, V0N 1B4, Canada Fodor's Choice

Just steps from the Blackcomb ski lifts, this imposing-looking fortress is a self-contained, ski-in, ski-out resort-within-a-resort with its own shopping arcade, golf course, and impressive spa. The cavernous lobby has a grand fireplace and standard rooms are all comfortably furnished, and most have mountain views. Rooms and suites on the Gold floors have fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, and their own concierge, as well as access to a private lounge where you can enjoy a complimentary breakfast in the morning and hors d'oeuvres before dinner. Guests on concierge floors also get free Wi-Fi. The resort's Wildflower Restaurant serves fine Pacific Northwest fare, as well as a delicious breakfast, against stunning mountain views. And the Artist in Residence program is always intriguing.
