After my stay at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel, Vancouver, it was time to head up to the mountains.

I booked a shuttle through Whistler Connection that picked us up at the Fairmont and dropped right off at the Four Seasons in Whistler.

When looking for hotels in Whistler, I took at look at American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts through my American Express Platinum Card, and found a decent rate at the Four Seasons Whistler.

The price was $359 CAD per night, but did include a full breakfast for two, room upgrade, and a $100 food and beverage credit, so I thought that was worth it.

Four Seasons Whistler

The Four Seasons features a spacious lobby. Upon check-in I was informed that we were upgraded to a Deluxe Executive Suite.

One of the great things about this property is that 95 of their 273 rooms are suites, so if you book through Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts, you have a good shot of a suite upgrade here.

Bottom Line

Overall, I would highly recommend the Four Seasons Whistler, especially if you can book through Fine Hotels and Resorts. While the hotel is not ski in/ski out, they do have a shuttle every 10-15 mins that takes you to the base of the mountain where they have a ski concierge shop set up that will hold your skis and boots for you overnight.

When it comes to Whistler, this is the hotel to stay at. The hotel is attached to the Four Seasons Residences, which looked a little newer, so I think if I came back I would like to try out those accommodations.

The Four Seasons does have a nice pool and several hot tubs, which were very busy after everyone came in from the mountain each day.

There is also a Spa and Fitness Center which are complimentary for guests, and the Spa does have a steam room.

Have you stayed at the Four Seasons Whistler before? What was your experience here?

  1. Good article. It looks like the lobby is much more appealing than the suite. I would take my pillow and blanket down to the lobby and hang out there with a bottle of cognac and a good book.

  2. Many of the properties at Whistler seem like they were cheaply built and don’t hold up to the wear and tear of a ski environment. They also seem overpriced for the quality level.

    The Four Seasons location is less then ideal. From the Fairmont you can walk to the Wizard Chair, and from the Westin, Hilton or Pan Pacific you can access both gondolas.

  3. Thanks for the review and the great pictures!

    My wife and I are thinking about doing the same trip this month, also through the Amex Platinum benefit of Fine Hotels & Resorts. I’m confused about the currency it shows when I am looking to book it. Did they charge you CAD in the amount shown on the Amex site (*assuming you are US based)? I did a comparison of a hotel in Tokyo and it definitely was showing USD and not JPY.

    Were the taxes/resort fees on top of that? Right now it’s showing 377/night, but I assumed that was USD. I’ll call Amex to clarify tomorrow.

    Also, since we are Seattle based, we drive up there. Do you know if parking is an Amex Platinum perk?

  4. The booking website on Amex has one answer. “U.S. Dollar rate shown on this website is intended for Card member ease of exchange rate. This conversion is approximate and intended for convenience only.”
