The ultimate in rustic-elegant luxury and top-notch service. The Four Seasons is located outside the bustle of the Village, in the relatively serene Upper Village near the base of Blackcomb Mountain. Its decor is a lovely mélange of modern-mountain-Craftsman style, its lobby a gracious space with a huge stone fireplace at one end and clusters of cushy leather chairs and sofas gathered under the large cast iron chandeliers. Guest rooms are spacious, among the biggest in Whistler, with elegant but comfortable furnishings—think caramel leather recliners, coffee-colored plaid throws, stone fireplaces, lots of warm wood trim, and spectacular views. Each also has a deep soaker tub for easing any post-ski aches and pains. The hotel is home to an excellent steakhouse (Sidecut), and casual bistro (Fifty Two 80 Eatery + Bar), as well as a relaxing spa. Every amenity you can think of is available, including ski concierge service and free bikes to borrow. Plus, your best friend is welcome at no extra charge.
