The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is an all-season mountain resort in Whistler, British Columbia. Since opening its doors in 1989, our Whistler mountain hotel has been the area's landmark ski resort, located within the Whistler Blackcomb ski area. Nestled at the base of breathtaking Blackcomb Mountain, the Chateau is just a seven-minute walk from the village of Whistler, and 75-miles from Vancouver along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway, considered one of the most scenic drives in North America.
In building The Fairmont Chateau Whistler mountain hotel, the architectural mandate was to 'infuse the charm and style of other Canadian chateaux built earlier in the century, into a modern structure.' Rustic Canadian antique pieces representative of the country in its youth were collected in Labrador, Baffin Island, the Laurentians, the Maritimes, rural Ontario and the West Coast. The interior design was under the direction of Frank Nicholson, internationally acclaimed interior designer, best known for Ritz-Carlton hotels and many of the Four Seasons hotels throughout the world.
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler expanded in 1997 with the addition of 221 guestrooms, a new 12,000 square foot ballroom, four breakout meeting rooms, rooftop garden terrace, Wedding Chapel, and an expanded spa facility within the Blackcomb-based hotel.
Bearing the signature style of The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, the grand decor brings the old and new together in a seamless meld of historical style and modern beauty.
