This luxury hotel has a prime location on the edge of the village and many upscale amenities. The two-story lobby is dramatic and rooms are chic and cozy, with moss green–and-rust color schemes, gas fireplaces, extra-deep tubs, and exceptionally comfy beds. The 1,400-square-foot, split-level suites are great for families: each has a full kitchen and a loft bedroom with a whirlpool tub. The hotel's large restaurant has an open kitchen and fantastic oversize windows. The
spa, with 25 treatment rooms and a mountain-view lounge, offers facials, body wraps, and holistic therapies such as herbology and acupuncture. The Fire Rock Lounge has jazz entertainment on the weekends, and for those in-the-know is a mellow alternative to rowdy après-ski venues.

Even though the East wing is a good walk from the lobby in the east wing and the indoor/ outdoor pool is 99% outside, this hotel is great! The indoor part of the pool is smaller than a king bed!!! The steam rooms are amazing with eucaliptus scent! The spa is huge, and has very good staff. The rooms are big, all with fireplaces, many with veiws of whistler mountain [not Blackhomb],Heavenly beds, and a beautiful kitchinette [ with marble counters, bishes,
pots, pans etc, dishwasher wich can be loaded and unloaded upon request, and an oven and a range] The 1 bedroom suite offers a dining table,and a deck [ excluding junior suites] and a large [ and I mean big] bathroom. Great bike and ski storage by the lobby entrance, and very freindly staff. Ran out of slippers on day 2, and had none for the next 2 dayts, until we left [hopefully got some by now!] Stay here. The Chateau Whistler is a hike from the core of whistler from the big biking mountain!!!
