Historical Traveller Reviews of Fairmont Tremblant Hotel
Nice, convenient locationfrom Miramar
The only hotel food service I used was the Wigwam, which is the counter service/pastry bar. I used it for breakfast in the mornings and found it to fine and convenient to be able to get something quickly before heading out. I plan to return to stay at the Fairmont on my next trip to Tremblant.
good but not greatfrom Berkshirebabes
The Fairmont is nice but not great. We thought that the decor was very dowdy, at least for our taste and the bar/lounge and restaurant areas rather uninspiring and unwelcoming. Also this grade of hotel should have a turn down service in the evening.
That said it is a great place to go skiing from the UK, with short flight and fairly easy transfers. We will go back next year, but probably to another hotel. The food in the village is good and a special mention to Oberoi, where you can get great soup and baguettes for lunch, in a quirky atmosphere.
Great family hotel for ski tripfrom sandy15
The is the place to stayfrom bonnagg
Our room was overlooking the mountain and was very spacious with a lounge area. We had upgraded to a deluxe room but this was more than expected.
The skiing itself we found slightly limited after ten days, but there were other activities to do if you wished. We did the dog sledding which was great fun.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday and the hotel was faultless. Highly recommended to anybody.
Excellent Hotelfrom picklesmcd
Food and Drink--Fairmont's restaurant is good but a little pricey. Excellent lounge, however we were surprised that kids can't sit in the lounge while their parents enjoy an apres ski drink. There is a strict over 21 law ( surprising seeing that Canadas alcohol laws are more relaxed than the states) that all lounges and bars obey. It makes it a bit difficult to enjoy apres ski with the kids.
The food in the village is mediocre. It seems that most of the restaurants are owned by Intrawest and serve the same food. Pizzateri, Spag & Co, La Forge and Le Shack all have decent, albeit similar food. La Forge and Le Shack are the best for Apres Ski. The Ice Bar is quite an impressive sight, however at a $17 entrance fee you might want to skip it. They play terrible techno music and have a very limited bar offering. They serve only Heineken beer, and a limited selection of lower end cordials and no wine. The tax situation is a joke. You will see 3 different taxes tacked on to the end of your bill. The tax issue turns a $40 family lunch into a $53 lunch without tip. There is a fedral Canadain tax, a Quebec
province tax and a Tremblant tax.
Skiing-- We expereinced great snow and weather conditions during our stay. There is a ton of snow! Excellent trail grooming and powder all weekend long We spoke to many locals who told us that the temperature routinely drops to -10 F during February. The temp remained in the 20's and 30's during our stay. The village is located on the South Side of the mountain. The South Side is much more crowded and can be windier than the North Side. Take the Gondola to the top and ski the North Side for most of your day. Due to what all of the locals were saying about the typical February temperature we don't think that we would go back to Tremblant in February. We would wait until mid to late March. My daughter went to ski school and everything worked out fine with the exception of some confusion as to where to go for her lessons.
Misc--If you are going back to the states stop at the duty free shop at the border crossing and get back your hotel tax. Make sure you bring your hotel receipt. This was a pleasant surprise. It is a long 7 1/2 hour ride from Boston. If you have time spend an afternoon in St. Jovite ( great little French town). Be prepared for the language barrier. Have Fun!
Go for Fairmont Goldfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We found the room to be very clean, modern and well serviced. The staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome.
Every day after skiing we sat in the outdoor hot tubs and pools which are heated and have a capacity of about 40 people.
The only downside was the noise of the air conditioning units above our room (720) which get noisy when the outside temperature goes above 2 degrees.
The hotel is perfectly located if you like a ski-in ski-out base and the ski valet was professional and friendly.
We ate out most nights but had one meal in the hotel restaurant which was good but a little pricey.
The restaurant above La Forge was great but the Plus Minus Cafe was too expensive and poor quality.
The juice bar Fluide served really nice soups and sandwiches for lunch and Oberoi served the best hot chocolate in the area.
A Very Good Hotelfrom MWA1004
Waiting For My Refund Because of the Strikefrom FamilyPerson
I decided to cancel my vacation and ask for my refund, when I learned that the ski school would be closed and therefore my kids would be unable to take lessons.
I am still waiting for a refund.
I am devastated. I thought the Fairmont had an ok reputation.
I do not trust the Fairmont hotel and would not dare risk a vacation in Mont Tremblant.
I am scared that Intrawest, the ski resort operator of Tremblant and other places in Canada, may face union strikes at their other Canadian ski operations in the future.

Top Local Tips for Mont Tremblant
Expedition Wolf One of the highlights of our trip was going on the "Expedition Wolf." This dog sledding experience is a must. It costs about $140 per person but it is worth every penny. You get to drive a sled with 6 Siberian and Canadian Huskies through the woods for around 2-3 hours. I "mushed" the dogs while my wife rested in the sled. Later we were able to hold some puppies and feed the dogs. I am not a big dog lover but I was ready to bring one of these beautiful dogs home with us.
ice bar just behind the fairmont is an ice bar bit pricie to get in but its a must - beautiful sculptured bar out of ice, even the glasses are made out of ice, very cool....
Dog sledding Definitely arrange dog sledding (expedition wolf) with the concierge. It was an experience of a lifetime.
