The hotel perfectly marries a rustic mountain sensibility with European grace via peaked roofs, slate floors, wooden beams and lots of plush leather sofas. The personalized service makes this huge resort feel like a boutique hotel, and the location at the base of Blackcomb Mountain is ideal for those who want the feeling of a true retreat — even though buzzy Whistler Village is just a 20-minute walk away.
Bed and Bath
Warm shades of mocha, latte and cream with dashes of burgundy lend a masculine tone to the luxe mountain vibe. The requisite flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations are there, of course, as are gas fireplaces in comfortable sitting areas that lead outside to private balconies overlooking the forest and snow-covered peaks. Huge baths are stocked with L’Occitane products and outfitted with his-and-hers sinks, soaking tubs and separate showers that feature walls inlaid with slate.
Sidecut is a sleek steakhouse featuring an open fireplace and an 1,800-degree infrared grill that cooks Canadian prime beef to juicy perfection. Right outside is the heated patio, which has its own fireplace where kids (and kids at heart) roast marshmallows after dinner. For après cocktails and live music, guests stop at the swanky Fifty Two 80 lounge. And the spa offers rejuvenating facials and balancing treatments such as the fruit crush body wrap.
In the Area
Sip a local BC microbrew or cocktail at Garibaldi Lift Company, a favorite après bar and lounge for hikers, bikers and skiers. Melt away muscle soreness during a hot-and-cold hydrotherapy treatment at Scandinave Spa, a 20,000-square-foot outdoor spa surrounded by a spruce and cedar forest. Araxi features a delicious farm-to-table menu that brings the best produce and meats from the Pemberton Valley to your plate. Sip vodka in the subzero Belvedere Ice Room at Bearfoot Bistro.
How to Get There
From the moment you drive onto the property you'll be met by the pleasant valet staff to assist you with your bags and take care of your vehicle. Check-in is a short jaunt away through the gorgeous entrance and you'll be welcomed to the awe inspiring hotel. Side note is that The Four Seasons is dog friendly and this is a big plus for us; we bring our pup with us everytime and even she is always treated like royalty!
The elevators will whisk you up to the floor of your suite and it's at that moment that you're home. You won't want to leave the room as they're comfortably large with spa like bathrooms and of course outstanding views. Not only will you love the luxurious comforts of the suite, your dog will also be taken care of with a luxury bed, bottled water, bowls + TREATS.
Turns out after taking in the views you'll likely change your mind and opt to leave the room to take advantage of the wine tasting and s'mores on the patio at 4pm - always a crowd favourite. You could also enjoy a multi-sensory cocktail experience at SideCut Modern Steak + Bar brought to you by legendary mixologist Lauren Mote. While you're at it, book a reservation for dinner and enjoy their fresh baked rosemary loaf with salt + honey butter. We crave this!
The fitness facility, spa and pool are all tremendous! You'll park yourself here all day while soaking up the sun and views.
Location is convenient as you are not right in the centre of the loud and busy Village but still super close if you feel like checking out some of the sights and sounds. There is a shuttle from the hotel or about a ten minute walk.
All in all; Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler is a top notch hotel. It is expensive but worth the experience each and every time. We always look forward to going back!
Just book it.An amazing experience with a fantastic location great staff and a room thay was jaw dropping beautiful. Yes you could book a cheaper hotel but it won't be as memorable.. Sweet little walk every morning to the village was the perfect start to the day..Just add in 45 dollars per day for valet parking.That would be the only little niggle.
fantastic hotel, good beds and all rooms are different with different outlooks. housekeeping needs to improve otherwise we were very good here for 8 days. its nice how it's easy walking distance to the village but they have a regular shuttle bus and its far enough away to feel remote and in nature. we had a suite as did our daughters some come with tow bathrooms , which for two girls worked a treat
We stayed at this hotel is part of a larger event that we attend on an annual basis.
From the very beginning of our stay this time we experienced rude and different and unhelpful Front desk staff.
Our party tried to check in and when they did so were informed that there were a number of nights all booked under one reservation.
When they inform the front that this was a mistake they said that they would have to wait until the main person listed on the reservation was there.
When we arrived we immediately began the check in process and confirmed with the front that they had made a mistake and it was not two rooms for two nights booked two rooms for one night.
The front staff person Aimee said that they would have to contact a manager as they could not change the reservation.
They asked that we go to our room and that we would be contacted by a manager.
we came back down after we had checked into the room and found a manager since we did not want to have this simple issue unresolved for the weekend.
The manager we dealt with then said that she could not make any changes to the reservation before she opened an investigation into the matter. I assured her that I have personally made the reservation directly to the hotel and that we were only staying for night. She said that she would need to retrieve the recordings and investigate the matter.
In the end after a significant amount of discussion she said fine we will make sure you were only charge for the one room.
I asked her to make sure to send me an email confirmation that this had been corrected. She said that the email would arrive Sunday before we checked out.
On check out we did not receive an email and on reviewing my credit card statement later that same day online I noticed that there were $1100+ dollars in charges that have been put through. There was also no discounted group rate for the room!
I am mediately called the hotel and asked Paul the front desk clerk to look into the matter he had no answers available and said he would need to track down a manager. I asked him to call me back once he’s spoken with the manager and the charges had been rectified.
When he called me back he still didn’t have any other answers other than the fact that he said that we had been refunded $170. He could not however tell me why we were refunded $170
Compounding the matter was the fact that the other party that stayed in the other room had given their credit card information and when they checked in however that room was also billed to my account!
After I again spent an hour on the phone with Paul trying to sort that mass out I asked him rather than to continue going around in a circle discussing it that he needed to send me an email with confirmation of exactly what charges were billed to me what rate I was being charged and why there was so much money put through on my credit card!
He said he would look into it and get back to me but couldn’t give me an estimated time as to when I might hear from him again.
And I have since called the front desk three times and no one is even answering the phones!!
It is astonishing how a hotel could list them selves as a five-star hotel with this shocking level of bad customer service!!
Hey manager and then
We stayed in the Residence part of the resort and had in effect a four bedroom apartment. There is a full size kitchen, 10 seater dining table, comfortable lounge, fire....it was so cosy and perfect for a skiing holiday. The staff really made this holiday though. They were exceptional. So friendly, helpful and courteous. Nothing was too much trouble. We left a rucksack behind by accident and they got quotes from shipping companies to return my bag...plus had to label it up with the appropriate labels. Sidecut is the restaurant located in the hotel side and that is also excellent. Excellent food and excellent service! It’s not cheap....but you do get what you pay for. We will definitely be returning here...hopefully next year. The snow was great for late April...it snowed about 8 days out of 14...so more than enough. Overall a fabulous holiday!
