Coast Fraser Tower
Very nice hotel. So so breakfast.
Absolutely HUGE rooms. It has a living room, kitchen and living room. The young man at the front desk was absolutely fantastic. He obviously loved his town and went out of his way to tell me all of the really cool things I should go and see.
The breakfast is a continental breakfast but was pretty underwhelming. There’s not too much in the immediate area but “downtown’ is only about a 5 minute walk away.
Would definitely stay here again.
Above and beyond
This was our first trip to YK to visit family. We travelled with our one year old son who got sick. Emergency room sick. The staff went so far above and beyond in helping and supporting us that I was floored. Truly impressive. The woman behind the desk with a long brown ponytail (I’m so sorry I don’t know your name) was especially fantastic during our crisis. Thank you.
Our room was fantastic! We were upgraded to a two bedroom suite, which was bigger than our home and the perfect set up for travelling with a toddler. We arrived early and the young man at the front went out of his way to get us into a room early so our little guy could nap after the long flight. That was so deeply appreciated.
The rooms are clean, lovely and good value. I would (and have) recommend this hotel in a second. And I’m a very well travelled, hotel snob.
Room was massive complete with kitchen, dining area, living room and separate bedroom with its own tv. Was a little outdated but extremely clean.
One big issue was no air conditioning complete with 34 celsius, high humidity and thick wildife smoke made for a stale/hot and muggy stay. Not typical yellowknife weather though so not sure how often you’d really need the A/C.
Good location though, a tad pricey. Overall 3 out of 5. When back in town for business I’d stay again.
Best in Yellowknife
I stayed here for two weeks on a business trip.
My apartment was clean and well appointed. The front desk help was outstanding.
The only downside is you are at the mercy of your neighbors consideration or lack thereof. Screaming kids, running in the halls, chairs being dragged across floors. But that happens in other hotels too. As far as the overall experience I was very pleased with this hotel and would stay again for sure.
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.
