Safety information and operational updates for your upcoming visit to Fairmont Chateau Whistler.

Our first priority is the safety and wellbeing of our guests and employees. At this time, Fairmont Chateau Whistler remains open and is closely following the advice from BC’s Ministry of Health, which includes strongly recommending that travel in and out of the Vancouver Coastal Health region be limited to essential travel only until further notice. BC’s travel advisory, along with other province-wide restrictions, will be revisited at the end of February. 

For over 30 years we’ve provided shelter and have been a home-away-from-home for guests and employees alike, and as long as we feel we can do that safely we will continue to do so. Should you have any questions or need further information, please contact the hotel directly at 604-938-8000 or


We remain committed to serving our guests and employees, and we will continue to operate under the strictest health and safety protocols to ensure that we maintain a safe environment for all who visit. Our new standards of safety and enhanced protocols and procedures were developed and vetted by a team of expert advisors to ensure maximum efficacy in preventing the spread of all viruses and pathogens, including COVID-19. The standards are validated under the new global ALLSAFE Cleanliness label. LEARN MORE
