Whitehorse does not have a wide variety of quality hotels. Coast would be near the top but do not expect Big City quality. Staff was very friendly and helpful, they kept us updated on the status of our pickup to the Lodge we were visiting.
Comfortable for business travel
I stayed here during a recent business trip and was so happy with the up-to-date room and amenities. My room had kitchen facilities that were nicely away from the bedroom past. The room was spacious and had a lovely desk set up that was very well designed for long hours of work. The jacuzzi tub was a great feature to take advantage of to unwind.
I also had drinks on The Deck atthe hotel, a favourite local hangout on sunny days and enjoyed a burger dinner inside the restaurant. All in all, this is one of the best hotels in Whitehorse.

Good base to see Whitehorse
This hotel looks quite basic on the outside (there’s a giant Mountie out there though!). The building isn’t anything special, but the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff are very friendly. The food here was pretty good- nice breakfasts and decent burgers etc. in the pub downstairs, which has a pretty good atmosphere. The hotel seems to be used as a hub for many of the adventure trips leaving for the wild parts of the Yukon, which means there’s many an interesting conversation to be had. If I had one suggestion for the hotel, it would be to invest in some blackout blinds for those of us not so accustomed to nearly 24hours of daylight!
Better than first appearances!
The High Country is a well-managed, friendly and high service hotel. It has an institutional feel (the building came to life as a YWCA), but the rooms are nicely outfitted and there are nice services throughout the facility. The staff are helpful and accommodating. A good part of the enjoyment is watching the newcomers to the Yukon ask excited questions and report back on their expeditions throughout the remarkable territory.
Perfect- loved it
Was here for business meetings. Check in fast and friendly. Hotel well kept and up to date. Rooms were great- I had two queen beds, work station, fridge, large jacuzzi tub, house coats, iron- one word wonderful.
They have a complimentary breakfast as well and lots of parking. You are on Fourth St.- the downtown is on Front and Second ave. you are central to everything. Highly recommend.
