WHY IT'S GREAT This palatial hotel sits at the base of Whistler mountain, making this a beautiful spot for skiers to stay. Guests at this chateau have included Justin Timberlake, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, and Sarah Jessica Parker. Chevy Chase felt so at home that he entertained guests with his singing and piano playing for two days straight in the view-endowed Mallard Lounge. British songster Seal opted for a quieter time of day; he ducked into the empty lounge early one morning to play the piano.
WHAT TO DO In the summertime, it's all about hiking and in the winter, the skiing can't be beat. The hotel boasts a luxe spa and plenty of shops for the lodge bunnies to enjoy.
