Four Seasons Hotel Whistler

Had a wonderful ski vacation at the Four Seasons.

Fitted our ski boots and equipment in the evening after check in at the onsite ski shop at the lower level. A short walk to the Blackcomb. Convenient shuttle to the village. Nice spa with a heated outdoor pool and tasty food at the Sidecut. The hot chocolates, s’mores, and apple kabobs in the afternoon were a nice touch. Had a unbeatable magical winter vacation at Whistler!

We are just finishing up our 10 night stay at the Four Seasons. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The hotel itself is beautifully appointed, but it’s the staff who have made our stay even more special. Everyone from the porters to the reception, concierge and restaurant staff are brilliant! The clincher for us though was the fabulous ski concierge service. Being able to leave our skis, boots and helmets at the base of the mountain was fabulous… and the staff help you with your boots and gear… plus there’s got chocolate and cookies!

Everything about Whistler is beautiful. The skiing is brilliant, but there’s plenty to do for non-skiers too. The hotel is a short walk from the upper village and there’s a regular hotel shuttle that runs into the lower village.

The buffet breakfast was delicious and we’ll definitely miss having eggs and omelettes made to order each morning. We’re also going to miss the heated outdoor pool and hot tubs.. and the day spa!

One of our boys was ill on the 2nd night of our stay and we had to make a trip to hospital in an ambulance. Everything ended up being ok, but the hotel staff went out of their way to ensure he was comfortable. We really could’ve have asked for more from the hotel or the staff.

Beautiful Resort . Staff was lovely . For avid skiers I would opt for a ski in/out resort . Getting on to the mountain was a a bit of a hassle and a process. The spa was wonderful and the food was great at Sidecut ( except it was the only restaurant, they do not allow children at the Tapas bar and the menu at that bar was limited ) . Perhaps it is a better experience in the summer when you don’t have to schlep down to the ski concierge with kids and then back in a crowded shuttle with gear to ski school .

We decided to stay here because we read about the ski concierge and the service they provided. It was wonderful, not issues, we got fitted in the hotel and our equipment was always ready to go at the base and we only had to carry our equipment for about 1 minute to the lift.

I had a wonderful room, the staff were polite. I had a very nice view.
Since this was a mini break away, also the breakfast meal I ordered, was fantastic, I enjoyed the ambiance of the hotel and would revisit this hotel again for a longer stay.

From the very first moment at checkin we began to realise this was going to be a great stay. The hotel is a magnificent building standing in the foothills of Blackcomb Mountain and the staff upgraded us to a fantastic top floor suite with magnificent views. The suite was fully equipped with gorgeous bedding and great bathroom facilities. Four Seasons have managed to blend the charm of a mountain lodge with all the modern demands of life today.
One special thanks to the staff who left a surprise cake for our Anniversary ..very nice.
The hotel has a cosy bar and excellent breakfast facilities and very attentive staff all of which combined to make this our hotel of choice if we are lucky enough to return to this beautiful part of the world.

We had such a great time! I have stayed at many hotels in Whistler and this one tops them all! Service is next level!! We felt as if we were treated like royalty! I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

A mid August visit was our first to the Whistler Village area. With the luxury accommodations and service we were provided, I can only hope to visit during the three other seasons to fully enjoy what the area has to offer. And Four Seasons would again be our first choice for future trips. The resort architecture is so perfect for the location. Timber framing and stone finishes throughout the common areas. A corner suite was ideal for our week long stay. Spacious rooms were clean and quiet and had many amenities. Bar and restaurant service was excellent. Staff was efficient and friendly. This location earned and went beyond what is expected from a high end property.

I love this property! The staff is so friendly & accommodating. They went out of their way to provide us with an exceptional experience. The rooms are comfortable & spacious. I highly recommend it. A gorgeous property in a gorgeous setting!

We had just come from the Fairmont at Banff Springs and the Fairmont Lake Louise with our two little kids and were so impressed by them we were expecting a big step up to the Four Seasons at Whistler. We have stayed at so many Four Seasons (Boston, New York, Lanai, Johannesburg, Casablanca, Sydney, Bogota, Paris etc) and just always feel like they are the hands down best hotel chain in the world. The Whistler Four Seasons felt like a typical, maybe a bit more upscale, but typical Marriott.

First, when we arrived the valet and bell staff couldn’t have been better. Typical Four Seasons. But the check-in desk was busy — three employees appearing to be working with two distinct guests. Turned out they were all working on the same guest. It was about a 15-20 minute wait before anyone acknowledged us (I am being literal here, no one looked up, no one told greeted us, they were enthralled with helping this guest in front of us who, as we could overhear, was looking for a room upgrade) and we decided to see if anyone at the concierge desk could help — they told us they could not. Finally the concierge came over and said they could check us in. Unfortunately because we were being checked in by a concierge we were not made aware of all the amenities the hotel apparently offered for kids — games in the afternoons, painting classes and who knows what else! We found out about them because we chatted with other families.

We reserved a one-bedroom suite, putting the kids on the pullout. We didnt realize until the morning that the blinds were missing — looks like they had been pulled off the wall by the prior guest and not replaced by the hotel. We assumed the hotel was full but later learned it was only 50% full so we were surprised by being placed in a second floor room (out of nine floors) that had blinds missing.

The following morning the cleaning staff was knocking on our door at 8am — bright and early, no one was awake yet, but thanks to the cleaners ignoring the Do Not Disturb sign we got an unexpected wake up call.And thanks to no blinds no the kids were up and not going back to sleep.

Overall, aside from the valet and restaurant workers, it seemed the hotel staff had been trained to ignore guests. No one greeted us in hallways or lobbies or at the pool or anywhere, frankly. Just seemed like a routine hotel and nothing special, nothing to pay extra for, and one to definitely avoid if you enjoy luxury experiences. Its location within Whistler is a bit sub-optimal — if it were a luxury hotel it would be fine, but its not and isn’t.

Finally, there were dogs everywhere. I guess they welcome pets which is fine, but the dog/guest ratio seemed askew.

We were back at the hotel for a family gathering and rented a two bedroom and den suite with Living room and kitchen. The room was spacious and as always, the staff and management were amazing. Helpful, generous, attentive and fun to engage with. The people are what make the hotel.
The room itself was tired and the kitchen was modesty equipped. No serving pieces, storage pieces, a mismatched chair in the dining room and generally the space is needing an upgrade. The room was very convenient as it was two levels with two entrances. It came with a private whirlpool which was great for the kids and there was all day activities for young children. We all had massages in the spa and again the staff were great.
We will be back again, however, I would like to see some upgrades. Thank you by the way for coming up with a more reasonable internet access policy from last year.

We spent 12 nights at the Four Seasons on our honeymoon. The executive suite was huge and comfy (and we loved the mock log fire), but it was the level of service that we just couldn’t get over. First, the concept of the ski concierge (“we’ll take your skis and boots to the bottom of the slope, give them to you in the morning, take them back in the evening, and give you hot chocolate and cookies”) seemed too good to be true (yet true it was), then the genuine friendliness and helpfulness of all the front door staff, front desk staff, servers, spa staff and housekeepers was like nothing we’d been used to. Finally, the hotel concierge deserves a special mention for not only booking our dinner reservations, but also finding somewhere showing the England v Wales Six Nations rugby match on a Saturday night (which was handily near one of the stops for the free hotel bus shuttle service – bonus!). We honestly couldn’t think of any suggestions to give the hotel for improvements. Outstanding.

This is one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. We’ve been twice for 8 day stays. The high end and lower end restaurants in the hotel itself are great. The ski rental shop is also on property. So convenient.

However, the ski concierge is unsurpassed. Until you’ve experienced it,
It’s hard to know how awesome it is. Not to have to carry skis, boots, helmets. Wow. And the concierge has a station in Whistler Village at certain times so you can leave your stuff with them there and hand in the village (you’d need a friend or family member to bring footwear for you since your walking boots are likely at the concierge.

Wife and daughter loved the spa.

The hotel is situated on the edge of Blackcomb – a five minute walk to the slopes and about 10 to Whistler village. The benefit is the hotel is super quiet.

This is not a cheap place by any stretch but, if it’s in your budget, I cannot imagine any place better to stay.

We had an amazing four nights at the Four seasons. I would have given it 5 stars but the restaurants could use improvement as well as the room service. Our breakfast came up cold and the manager who sat us in the dining room was coughing the entire time. We were all scared we would end up sick on vacation. The hotel staff was excellent though and the rooms are great.
