Coast Fraser Tower
good choice for a longer stay
In Yellowknife for a week.Our two bedroom suite was clean and well appointed. Beds where very good/with extra pillows and good lighting beside the bed for reading. ( very important to me).Black out curtains were nice as we stayed in july and it helps for a good nights sleep. Each bedroom came w/a fan, and as we where on the 11 floor a nice breeze meant that they stayed in the closet.The only things i would change is to change the 4 cup coffee maker in the kitchen to a fullsize coffee pot. The living room had a large easy chair ,but a foot stool to go with it would be nice. The view was terrific from higher up. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Bring ear plugs
I can’t believe that yellowknife can’t do better than this facility for a business traveller. Paper thin walls, party central for all the summer young guests. Over booked, had to settle for most expensive room that didn’t even reach 2 star status. Furniture and fixtures are from the 70′s at best. If this is the best Yellowknife has to offer, avoid Yellowknife.
Accommodation Not Worth the Price
Very little lived up to expectations, based on the price paid for this apartment-style hotel.
To be fair, I received a free upgrade to a two bedroom apartment, without asking. That was nice. However, the hotel has no air conditioning, which, even in a Yellowknife summer, is something that’s required. Interestingly, when I inquired about the lack of air conditioning, the staff I spoke to didn’t know that air didn’t exist.
Room décor was average. The kitchen was well appointed and reasonably uptodate. Basic cleaning was done, although things were overlooked such as running the dishwasher and putting some of the pillows back on the bed after making it. Little things, but it makes one wonder what other things were missed that couldn’t be seen.
Overall, I likely would not return.
The staff was reasonably friendly

I stay here for business and personal when traveling out of the Canadian Arctic. I like having the suites as I sometimes stay an extra day to visit with friends. Nice to have them over for a snack and I can also have my own food without having to eat in resturants. Always clean and the staff are very friendly and professional.
Coast Towers exceeds expectations
I recently travelled to Yellowknife on business and decided to stay at Coast Towers because they have suites and I have to come back for a week in August and am bringing my teenage son (who is at the age where he would prefer his own floor let alone his own bedroom). I informed the front desk person that I was hoping to see firsthand what the 2 bedroom suite looked like so I would know whether it would work for my next visit. The front desk person (who I think is named Sean, might be another S name) contacted the manager who not only offered to show me the 2 bedroom but upgraded me for the night so I could really get a sense of what it was like — and it was wonderful, roomy, spacious, lots of natural light, and private spaces for families travelling together. Needless to say I booked it for the week in August. I travel nonstop for business and it means the world when a hotel provides these personalized considerations.
