FAIRMONT CHATEAU WHISTLER ACKNOWLEDGED AS BEST IN CANADA FOR SPECIAL EVENTS
Posted April 3, 2018
- Whistler Women’s Weekend Retreat Receives National Award -
Whistler B.C. April 4, 2018 – On March 21, Fairmont Chateau Whistler was awarded “Best Event Produced by an In-House Team at a Venue or Corporation” at Canadian Special Events Magazine’s annual Event Awards Gala. The Fairmont’s ‘All About Me’ women’s weekend got the national nod, beating out contenders WestJet and Calgary Stampede, among others, for the award.



The concept for ‘All About Me’, now in its third year, was the vision of Yasmin Haufschild, Fairmont Chateau Whistler’s Director of Special Events and Product Development, who also doubles as event host for the three-day affair. “In the world of special events, hotels are typically the venue or caterer only. Very rarely will a hotel produce an event from start to finish,” states Haufschild. “Not only was our Whistlerhotel team involved in every element of this program, it was particularly important to me, now more than ever, to design an experience that promotes women’s empowerment and self-care.”



The "All about Me" women's weekend retreat provides an opportunity for guests to realign their mind, body, and soul in a luxurious mountain resort setting. This year’s retreat takes place October 12 – 14, 2018. Further information can be found on Fairmont.com.



Whistler-based Celebrate Events was recognized for “Best Wedding Over $75,000” for the Giesbrecht Gill Wedding, which took place on the Woodlands Terrace at Fairmont Chateau Whistler while “Most Creative Table/Centre Design” went to Vancouver’s Christopher J Design for Step into Spring, a collaboration with Fairmont Chateau Whistler and Rare Indigo.

NEW SUITES SWEETEN SLOPESIDE EXPERIENCE AT FAIRMONT CHATEAU WHISTLER
Posted February 21, 2017
- Five-Year, Multimillion-Dollar Hotel Renovation Complete -
Whistler B.C. – Today Fairmont Chateau Whistler revealed 11 brand new 600 square foot suites. Intimate and perfect for couples with a luxurious bedroom, cozy fireplace, and modern bathroom with spa shower, the aptly named Alpine Suites are situated on the highest floors of the hotel and offer breathtaking views of Whistler Blackcomb and the Coast Mountain Range.

Fairmont Chateau Whistler now has a room count of 539 rooms and suites, including 55 Fairmont Gold rooms.



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 décor, soft furnishings and electronics; corridor décor updates including new Canadiana artwork; a complete renovation of the pool complex; and all 32,000 square feet of meeting space receiving new carpets, wall-coverings, chandeliers, furniture, and foyer décor.
