Four Seasons Whistler is a luxury ski hotel in the Rocky Mountains in Canada. We share how to get the best deal, offer, or discount below.
Why Choose Four Seasons Whistler?
The Four Seasons Whistler has 178 guest rooms and 95 suites, a dedicated ski concierge, a gorgeous spa, and a heated pool. It is situated on the Blackcomb side of Whistler and is one of the most luxurious hotels at the foot of the magnificent Blackcomb Mountain.
The Four Seasons Whistler is one of the best Four Seasons Ski Resorts in the world. I have stayed there many times since its opening in 2004 and love its wooden ski lodge glamor. It’s almost ski-in-ski-out and has a glorious year-round, fully heated 23-meter outdoor pool. It has incredible views across the stunning rocky mountain scenery, which means that it is a great choice for a vacation.
Four Seasons Whistler is also one of the best Four Seasons ski hotels and tends to be one of the best value too, so if you were thinking of staying in Four Seasons Vail or Four Seasons Hotel Megeve in the European Alps, it might just be worth considering this gem of a hotel in Whistler too because it might be a better deal.
Using the following tips, we can help you get the best deal at Four Seasons Whistler:
1. Free Benefits Are As Good As A Discount
Our rates match those on the Four Seasons website, including discounted and special offer rates, but by booking with us, you get extra free benefits, including free breakfast, free room upgrade (subject to availability), a welcome gift, and a $100 resort credit. We offer similar free benefits at over 1,000 other luxury hotels across the world.
2. Book A Special Offer At Four Seasons Whistler
Usually, offers available on the Four Seasons website include their stay longer and third-night free deals, which means that you receive a complimentary third night. Advance purchase deals enable you to take advantage of around a 20 percent discount on the room rate.
Right now, Whistler has a rather nice celebration package. They say, “Surprise your loved ones with a mountain getaway and enjoy complimentary parking and a late check-out, as well as a dining credit with suites.” All of these deals can be combined with our own free benefits.
3. Stay In Summer
When the snow stops falling, Whistler becomes a whole lot cheaper and yet it’s just as lovely. In fact, in the summer it is warm and filled with the scent of alpine flowers and pines. If you visit in the summertime, the rates are a steal when compared to the winter.
4. Book Early At Four Seasons
Four Seasons hotels and resorts are so popular that they often sell out, so they don’t need to discount their rooms during the high season. But outside of the high season, you can often pick up a good deal. Straight after Christmas and New Year is a great time to visit Whistler, with bags of snow, but you don’t have to pay the premium rates which are charged on these celebratory dates. The start and end of the ski season are also good times to visit. At these shoulder times of the year, the snow coverage may rely on snow cannons, but you can still ski and snowboard for a fraction of the usual price.
5. Join The Four Seasons Loyalty Scheme
This is a trick title! Four Seasons doesn’t reward guests with loyalty points. Most Four Seasons hotel room rates start at $500 – $1000 USD per night, and because there isn’t a Four Seasons loyalty program, you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them on a Four Seasons hotel stay. It can’t be done.
If you are a premium member of an alternate hotel’s loyalty scheme, you get premium benefits, particularly if you are a regular guest. The only way of getting this kind of special treatment and loyalty benefit at a Four Seasons hotel is by booking with a luxury travel agent like our luxury travel concierge.
6. Change Your Holiday Dates
Where possible, re-arrange your dates and plan to specifically target the Four Seasons hotel you are planning to visit, when it is cheapest and offers the best discounts. Also when the hotel is full, the check-in team is less likely to find a room in the category above yours to upgrade you to.
7. Stay One Night & Enjoy The Hotel For Two Days
Even if you just book your stay at one of the Four Seasons Whistler for one night, you can enjoy the facilities on the afternoon of arrival and the day of departure.
The pool at Four Seasons Whistler is a highlight, and you can take advantage of this area from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, even after you’ve checked out of your room. It is warm, and the steam rises up in the winter as the snow falls, which is pretty magical. The pool deck is heated, so you don’t have to run from the indoors to the pool like an idiot to avoid frozen toes (it also avoids any icy slippiness, a very welcome attribute). There are also three therapeutic hot spring-style whirlpools, a wooden cabin sauna along with a fully equipped gym that comes complete with personal trainers.
8. Stay Shorter
It sounds obvious when you say it out loud, but I would prefer three nights at an expensive Four Seasons rather than a week at a cheap budget resort.
9. Use Corporate Promo Codes
There are special corporate promo discount codes, so if you are an employee of a company like Goldman Sachs, Bank Of America, IBM, or the government, you might be able to take advantage of these discounts. These codes are not widely available to the general public, and the discount may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. We suggest asking for a free quote from our luxury travel concierge so you can compare prices and benefits and get the complete picture before booking.
10. Don’t Book With Your Credit Card Travel Agency
Do you want to be at the front of the queue for your free room upgrade? Book your Four Seasons stay via our luxury travel concierge, and we will put you first in line for your free upgrade. You will be placed in front of guests who book via booking services like American Express Finest Hotels & Resorts.
This is because our travel agency is an official partner of Four Seasons hotels, so room upgrades for clients that we book into Four Seasons hotels are put at the front of the queue! You can still use any credit card as payment when you book with our concierge, so you still get your usual loyalty points and rewards from your credit card when you book with us.
