Set at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, the Fairmont Chateau brings comfortable accommodations for the winter seekers. Grand in size, the Chateau stands out with its peaked roofs and glistening lights in Whistler.
Stepping into the lobby, the unparalleled service of Fairmont Hotels is apparent. Greeted with a smile and a quick check-in process, we were at ease at once. As we peered out the large glass windows overlooking the mountain, the snow started to fall, and our stay began.
The time at the Fairmont Chateau was both beautifully luxurious and approachable. Their alpine-design in the lobby made the space feel comfortable, with large fireplaces to cozy up to. Downstairs on the main floor, the expansive health club included a heated lap pool, a fitness room, saunas, and an indoor hot tub. Every afternoon, we retreated here for a soak and a steam to warm up after a day of adventures.
The evenings turned into dark quickly, but not before a great après-ski drink at the Mallard Lounge. It was buzzing, with both visitors and locals alike. After a drink, one night we dined at The Grill Room, experiencing the finest ingredients from the region, plated beautifully, and incredible service. With many onsite amenities at the Fairmont Chateau, like 7 restaurants, a ski rental shop, and other boutiques to browse, it makes it easy to never have to leave.
Being booked into a Gold Suite, meant walking into an room that felt like a home. We had a lovely fireplace that opened to both the living space and the bedroom. The living room was comfortable, including a large desk and a large closet to hang all of our winter accessories. The bedroom was cozy, and had a large window overlooking the snow-topped trees — one of my favorite views to wake up to. The walk-in closet was a dream, and of course, the signature bathrooms that have a soaking tub and a shower seal the deal.
Staying at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler was a dreamy getaway. Being close to the mountain was lovely, and having the service to help us tailor our trip made the stay easy. With the resort including amenities like a health club, yoga classes, a village shuttle, and more, it was a perfect time in the heart of Whistler.

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
