Coast Fraser Tower
Great accommodation at a fair price
We stayed in a 1-bedroom unit for two nights in February 2014. The unit consists of a large living room with a flat-screen TV and door to the balcony (with views of the ice-road), a fully-equipped kitchen with a small table/chairs, a large bedroom (with another TV) and a bathroom (with lots of shampoo, conditioner and skin lotion, which you will need in the winter!). Everything worked well, the staff were lovely and they have GOOD coffee available in the lobby all day long. The stay includes a continental breakfast, which offered juice, cereals, muffins and breads for toasting.
Stayed here for 3 night last month, very happy that I decided to go with this place. Stayed in a 2 bdrm suite that had plenty of space with a full kitchen. All staff were super friendly and service was always great. The only thing I hope they are able to fix one day is the range of the wifi. Worked ok when I sat closer to the entrance of the suite but once I was in either of the bedrooms I couldn’t pick it up anymore. Other than that I was very satisfied with my stay and I will return the next time I’m in the area.
This was a wonderful hotel with nice rooms. Rooms had a balcony, big windows and great views. We had 4 people and stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which had a kitchenette which we found to be extremely spacious and perfect for our needs. The free gym was also handy. The reception staff gave us good tips for seeing the northern lights. The location was within a few minutes walking to downtown. It made our stay at Yellowknife very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
Great staff, great experience
We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel after travelling all the way from Australia. The thing that stood out the most were the amazing staff. We have done a fair amount of travelling over the years and found them to be as good if not the best we’ve ever encountered. Always helpful, always friendly and always accommodating. We hope we get the chance to return to visit Yellowknife again.
Good hotel, great location, friendly staff
Myself, hubby and our cat were staying in the Coast Fraser for just over a month back in July/ August 2013. We had a nice and clean 1 bed apartment on the 6th floor with the view of town. The apartment was well appointed, had a balcony and all the amenities including a kitchenette (very basic kitchen utensils but I believe they provide you with all you need if you ask). The place was kept rather clean, however after couple of weeks I’ve noticed the dust gathering on the furniture, bed frame etc which suggests they are not very thorough when cleaning (you wouldn’t notice it though on a normal, shorter stay). The bathroom was getting very steamy after showering which could be a nuisance. Having a pet in the room proved a bit stressful at cleaning times as the cleaners often left the apartment door wide-open to easily move in and out for their supplies. I ended up waiting for the cleaner each morning to make sure the cat doesn’t escape through the door. They do have a policy that pets should be in a kennel/ box whenever the owner is not around, but it seemed too harsh for my quiet and well behaved kitty to be left in her travel box for couple of hours. I spoke to the front desk but they couldn’t offer any other solution at the time. The breakfast included in the room rate was adequate and always fresh, but it was a cold buffet only and proved to be quite boring and limited after couple of weeks. The staff throughout the hotel were very pleasant and helpful. They did end up overcharging us for the stay, but we got credited back after couple of weeks and filing complaint through their website (part of their process). I was quite disappointed that they only offer you up to 500 Aeroplan points after your stay, maybe they could look into it. Apart from couple of minor things I mentioned above, we had a very good and enjoyable stay and would gladly recommend this hotel to others.
