Whistler Hotel Discounts

Flash Your CAA or AAA Card And Save

If you are a CAA or AAA (Canadian/American Automobile Association) member, Whistler hotel discounts are available to you at almost half of the hotels in Whistler.

And lest you think you can only achieve these savings at the lower end hotels, the Fairmont Chateau, one of Whistler resorts top hotels, offers its guests who are AAA/CAA members 20% off their best available rate. And getting the discount is easy. Simply go directly to their website, choose AAA/CAA under "Rate Type", and voilà, a savings of 20%. (Which can add up pretty quickly at the Chateau.)

Personally I've been a CAA member since 1993 (one year longer than I've been a Whistler Blackcomb Edge Card member) and I use my card for savings on hotels and rental cars all the time (and not just in Whistler). I find those savings alone make the membership worth it. Heck, just the savings you would realize by taking advantage of the AAA discount when you book a couple of nights in the Chateau Whistler would pay for your annual membership and then some!

All in all, there are eleven Whistler hotels that offer discounts to AAA/CAA members. The amount of the discount varies from place to place but is typically in the 10% range. So in no particular order, here they are...

Places Offering Whistler Hotel Discounts To AAA/CAA Members

Fairmont Chateau Whistler Resort And Spa

As we have already discussed, the Fairmont Whistler offers one of the biggest Whistler hotel discounts at 20%. Our family loves staying at the Chateau in both the winter and the summer, so this works well for us. (And as a bonus, from now through December 31st, AAA/CAA members also receive a $50 dining credit when booking a minimum of 2 nights.)

The fact that the Fairmont is located just steps from the base of Blackcomb Mountain makes it a very convenient place to stay during ski season.

Add to that the great swimming pool(s), hot tub(s), health facilities, restaurants and lounges and you end up with one of the best resorts in Whistler.

During the summer our boys love to stay here. Probably because the hotel is just a few steps from the Summer Adventure Zone.
