Review of Le Chamois, Whistler

Booked for a few nights in September and probably goes down as one of my best hotel stays ever. The room was huge with a spa tub that was like a mini swimming pool. I had a view of the mountains too.

Comfy queen size bed, double sofa, small dinning table with chairs. Large bathroom with shower. My room had a small sink, kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge and cups, plates, knives etc. There was no cooking facilities and I wish I had booked a room that had one as it would have made my stay all the better (not sure if there is). Nice thick curtains blocking out the light at night Its easy to get into town takes about a 5 min walk.

Fan in room to cool down and the option to open multiple windows to let some fresh air in.

There is also free long distance phone calls and free WiFi. There is satellite TV. The only grown was the TV was a little small on the nights I wanted to kick back on the sofa and catch a movie.

If I came back to whistler then I would stay here again without hesitation.

Review of Le Chamois, Whistler
We visit Whistler at least every 2 years, but until now we have always stayed at either the Fairmont or the Four Seasons. Given that we were staying a full week this time, we thought it would be nice to have a kitchen and decided to try the Chamois.

We don’t go to Whistler to party, so we very much prefer the quiet location of Blackcomb, and the Chamois has the absolute BEST location for skiing. Our daughter was in ski school, and I could sit by our living room window and wait to see her coming down, and then go and pick her up before she even had time to take her skis off. In my opinion, the location of the Chamois is by far its best asset. The fact that it’s removed from the main village also means that it is quiet at night, a definite plus when travelling with children.

If you are going to Whistler to party keep in mind that you will have to go to the main village for that, but it only takes about 5 minutes to walk there. There are a few restaurants next to the Chamois, notably the Milestones right in front and the Portobello inside the Fairmont (great for breakfast!).

Our first impression of the room at the Chamois was very good. We rented a nicely decorated 1-bedroom, 2-bath suite overlooking the slopes (#316), directly from the owner. I still don’t have a clear understanding how this property works, but since we rented from the owner, the front desk was of absolutely no help to us. They could not help when we were locked out of our suite due to a door malfunction, and we got no housekeeping or any other services. Something to keep in mind when considering this property.

There was stuff (kitchen utensils, a printer, plastic containers) in every single closet, which I assume belonged to the owners. I found this quite annoying, especially because they chose to store a food processor in the coat closet, which made it smell like food. We had to hang our coats on the hooks in the hall to avoid smelling like a we were running a burrito place.

Both bathrooms were very nice. The living room sleeper sofa for the kids was fantastic. The bed, on the other hand, has definitely seen better days. The mattress had a strange, saggy, layer on top, and then came the sheets, which should really be used for rags by now. I’m all for giving things a good use, but the sheets at our unit were way beyond their linen days.

We had a kitchen, however it was disappointing to find that there was no oven, especially because we had brought frozen pastries that we had hoped to bake for breakfast during our stay. In my world, a full kitchen includes an oven… A toaster was provided, but it looked at least 20 years old and could not even fit a sliced bagel. The stove top had two tiny burners, which could not accommodate the pans provided in the suite.

All in all, I have mixed feelings about this place. As much as I loved the location and having a dining table, I don’t feel we got our money worth from the suite. We’ll be going to Whistler again next year, but I’m not sure we’ll be staying at the Chamois.

After having a problem with our reservation that they didnt recognize because expedia made a mistake, we should be accommodated at another hotel managed by the same group. The manager, offered us to stay at the Chamois as a guest, without paying for the upgrade. The hotel is very nice, with a great view and very well located at the upper village.

This is very nice location on the Blackcomb Mountain side. There’s a ski equipment rental store next door, and storage just downstairs from the hotel. This hotel is good for people who like to do a little light cooking during longer stays, as they have a stove top, microwave, plates and cups etc. Our friends also stayed here at the same time, but in different room…

All the people we interacted with around Whistler were so helpful and polite. The room itself was very nice and clean – and, we enjoyed our stay very much.

Review of Le Chamois, Whistler

My 1 bedroom suite (# 216), where I stayed for nine nights, was fabulous. It has been refurbished in a contemporary style with quality fixtures. The QS bed was warm and comfortable though very firm, so beware any soft bed lovers. I’m told the sofa bed was very comfortable too. Great for people watching – # 216 is on level 2 and overlooks the square at the Wizard chair lift that goes up Blackcomb mountain. This is the closest hotel to the chair so is very easy for skiers and boarders. Skis can be locked away for free in the ski hire place attached to the hotel but there is no drying room for clothes or boots. Windows are well sealed so there was no problem with noise from the square. It is so quiet I even slept in a few times. The bathrooms are modern and clean with heated floor tiles and a great shower in the ensuite. A two “burner” electric cooktop and a microwave are the only cooking facilities, so no grill/broiler or oven. There are plates, glasses and cutlery plus some pots, pans and utensils but only salt, pepper and sugar provided plus coffee pods for the coffee machine. A mixing bowl and a salad bowl would have been useful.

There’s a coin operated share laundry on level 4 that is easy to use and cheap. The machines hold heaps. I didn’t use the hot tub or gym. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. The front desk closes at 10pm. It’s not really a “hotel” as such. I believe room cleaning and linen changes can be pre-arranged at a fee. Our towels were changed at the halfway point of a nine night stay but there were plenty of clean towels in the cupboard.

Rooms in this apartment hotel are individually owned and decorated, though centrally managed with a front desk reception. My review is for Room 216 which has one bedroom, a kitchenette, a fold out sofa bed in the living room, a second bathroom/dressing room with toilet/washbasin (ie no shower) off the living area and an ensuite with toilet shower etc. There was plenty of storage space. Other rooms in the hotel can be different and from what I saw less contemporary so worth digging deeper if you’re interested in staying here.
