Fairmont Chateau Whistler, which Condé Nast Traveler named “best resort in Canada” in its 2021 Reader’s Choice Awards, doesn’t rest on its laurels. The property, with 32,000 square feet of meeting and event space and the capacity to host a conference for 1,500, has news of upgrades and new amenities to share with meeting planners.  

  • In April 2022, a two-phase guestroom refresh of 72 percent of the hotel’s inventory began; 366 guest rooms and 8 suites will be re-styled with an alpine lodge décor in time for the winter holiday season.
  • Expanded adventures and well-being experiences are now available. Group sizes are small, most activities are complimentary, and adventurers have an opportunity to try new things in a safe and supportive environment. The experiences take visitors off the beaten tourist track to reveal Whistler’s hidden gems, from cultural experiences and regional food and beverage tastings to building your own ‘TRYathalon’ of recreational activities. Outings are designed for the mild to wild adventurers and include museum tours, hikes, bike rides, skiing, brewery and local farm tours, paddle-boarding, snowshoeing, axe-throwing and so much
  • Fairmont Gold, a new ‘hotel within a hotel’ opened in 2021, offering elevated service and privacy in the Fairmont Gold lounge and 96 guests. The $14.2 million project boasts a ‘next level’ experience with enhanced amenities, luxe accommodations, and sophisticated culinary offerings in the lounge, including house smoked gravlax, honey made from the hotel’s rooftop hives, and hors d’oeuvres individually plated and served on personal-sized hand-carved cedar boards. The gold experience begins as soon as guests arrive and bypass the main lobby to check in with the concierge on the private floor. 

 

Level Hotels & Furnished Suites, which provides apartment-style accommodations for short and long stays, is expanding its portfolio with the opening of Level Seattle - South Lake Union later this spring.

 

When I visited Boise Centre for our recent cover story on Idaho’s capital city, I found the convention center, much like the city itself, spotless and both nimble and responsible in reacting to the ongoing pandemic.

 

In early March, Meeting Professionals International released a statement regarding the invasion of Ukraine: 

“In a show of support for the people of Ukraine, MPI will immediately suspend business with all companies in Russia. In addition, any plans to formalize a chapter in Russia will be paused….We remain concerned for the well-being of our community and our MPI members in Russia and Ukraine who were already seeking to climb out of the shadow of this pandemic and are now experiencing these unprecedented challenges.”
