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
We stayed 5 nights for kids to first experience skiing. The hotel was great with very friendly and helpful staff (esp the concierge). Ski shop in the hotel and ski concierge at the base of Blackcomb were very professionally run. Shuttle buses to and from hotel and village every just 10 min or so. Great facilities made it so easy to access the mountains. Highly recommended
Stayed at the hotel for 10days , a excellent hotel and resort , fantastic staff food was excellent , I would recommend this hotel for its service and location to the ski slopes.
We will defiantly be back , one negative point is our stay was during local spring break, the hotel was full of young children most of them were behaved , there was however a lot of children running wild and loud and badly behaved in the restaurant and bar, the parents did not control there children in any way at all , and management seemed to allow this which was disappointing. I would suggest seriously staying away during that period as it is not a pleasant experience being surrounded by screaming children in a 5 star resort, I understand we all pay good money for staying in the resort , but the parents should be told by management and respect other guests.
I stayed at the Four seasons for a few days on a business incentive trip and really felt at home there. I had a a very comfortable bed in a lovely very clean suite with all the amenrties. I only ate Breakfast there and it was very good, the fresh berryys were the best I've had for a long time anfd the coooked option was just right - nice and hot, not over cooked dry or greasy and a good selection to choos from (italian spicy sausage was excellent). the bar was well stocked with a variation of good beers wines and spirits, I particulary enjoyed the chocolate porter whilst my colleagues liked the local lager. All the staff were freindly, attentive, polite and natural at making you feel welcome. I would definitely return there if I went back to Whistler.
I broke both my ankles on my last day at Whistler. The Four Seasons management and staff went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable on my last night. They picked me up from the hospital, helped me pack my luggage, gave me crutches to take home, and made sure to liaise between my car service to airport and the airline to ensure a smooth trip home.
One of the nicest resorts you could stay in. Everything is very well done. Large and very comfortable rooms. Customer service is top notch. Ski concierge and shuttle service to Whistler village work very well. Loved the cookies at the end of the ski day. Hotel had a fun cupcake birthday surprise for my birthday week. Also enjoyed that the pool was warm enough to swim in the winter. I've stayed at other hotels in Whistler where the pool was too cold to get in. Thank you for a great stay!
