Fairmont Chateau Whistler Wins 'Best Of' Award for Northwest Meetings & Events
Whistler, July 17, 2012
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is proud to be honored the second year in a row in Northwest Magazine’s Meetings & Events 2012 Reader’s Choice Best of Awards. Hundreds of industry professionals in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, British Columbia and Alaska were asked to vote for their top choices on venues, attractions and suppliers. For Best Hotel with Meeting and Event Space and more than 400 rooms, The Fairmont Chateau Whistler came out on top against tough competition in both Whistler and across British Columbia. With over 32,000 square feet of meeting space available for both large and small groups, a tented rooftop terrace with panoramic mountain views, an onsite award winning golf course and ski-in/ski-out luxury accommodation, it’s easy to see why meeting planners consider the hotel to be among the top choices for meetings and events across the Northwest.
Whistler Blackcomb notably also won the prestigious Best Resort award for its walking pedestrian village and year round on and off mountain attractions including skiing, ziplining, hiking, sightseeing, shopping and fine dining on Whistler Blackcomb.
In Vancouver, The Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel, also named the world’s best airport hotel, won for Best Hotel with Meeting and Event Space for less than 400 rooms. Its incredibly convenient location within the Vancouver International Airport makes it the perfect place for meetings for guest on the go.
