WHISTLER, B.C., CANADA—Fairmont Chateau Whistler has unveiled 11 new 600-sq.-ft. suites. Offering a fireplace and modern bathroom with spa shower, the aptly named Alpine Suites are situated on the highest floors of the hotel and offer views of Whistler Blackcomb and the Coast Mountain Range.
“Heeding the needs of our most discerning guests, we created a new suite experience which seamlessly blends the highest quality product with the warm and inviting service for which Fairmont is renowned, framed by picturesque mountain views,” stated Managing Director Norman Mastalir.
The Alpine Suites offer a bedroom with a bespoke king bed placed before a bold feature wall, plus a separate living area with sectional sofa and built-in fireplace. Featuring subtle modern finishes and rustic textures of antiqued bronze, rust iron and distressed woods, the suites also offer furniture with clean lines layered with textiles and abstract artworks of local attractions to enhance the sense of place, according to the company.
The suites, designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates, took two and a half months to complete with the 11 suites having been created from 22 of the hotel’s Moderate Rooms. Fairmont Chateau Whistler now has a room count of 539 rooms and suites.
This project concludes an extensive five-year, $23-million renovation which comprised of 150 bathrooms receiving complete facelifts including new plumbing and rain head showers; room enhancements including new decor, soft furnishings and electronics; corridor decor updates including new artwork; a complete renovation of the pool complex; and all 32,000 sq. ft. of meeting space receiving new carpets, wall-coverings, chandeliers, furniture, and foyer decor.
