The only place to stay
Great hotel. Suites with balconies. Amazing view of northern lights. Free breakfast is a great benefit. I highly recommend staying at coast Fraser towers in Yellowknife. Location is close to downtown.

It's all about the balcony!
Stayed at the Coast Fraser Tower for 4 nights. There were 3 of us sharing a 2 bedroom apartment. Having the full kitchenette was very helpful for keeping snacks and food that we took with us on day trips out of town. Staff was friendly and helpful with touristy questions. The continental breakfast was well done – breads and bagels were all separately bagged in Ziplocs. There was coffee, tea and water always available in the lobby.
One thing that set the Coast Fraser apart for me was the balcony. I was able to go out during the night and see the northern lights right over the city.
The only reason the rating isn’t tops is the terrible wifi service. None of us was able to connect the entire time we were there. If you require reliable internet, this isn’t your best bet. For the rest of us, a solid option.

Nightmares on check in
Arrived at hotel today at 5pm room not ready had to wait over hour till could have a room.
This booking was for a special birthday celebration and the arrival totally ruined start of stay.
I was promised a call from manager still waiting.
Not impressed with hotel service so far, seems the norm at this hotel.
Shame coast ruined our holiday
Updated rooms are lovely, very comfortable, and clean.
I’ve stayed several times at Fraser Coast Towers over the past 10 years, sometimes with members of my family, and sometimes alone, but my last stay was the best. They’ve been gradually updating their rooms, and I stayed in one of those Monday night. It was a 2-bedroom apartment, very spacious, nice furniture, new fridge, dishwasher, etc. There was a TV in the living-room and additional TVs in each bedroom, and they even supplied bathrobes.
The kitchen was well supplied with kitchen utensils which makes it easy to eat in and save on restaurant meals, but they also have a complimentary continental breakfast in the hotel, and they serve dinner each night for a very reasonable price. The staff are all very pleasant and helpful.
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that the WiFi at Fraser Coast has been terrible for years. It starts and stops, you have to keep signing in over and over, and sometimes it isn’t strong enough to work at all. I tried to use an app that accessed the internet – not downloading or anything like that – and it wouldn’t work. If you had to prepare for a business meeting and needed to access corporate websites to do so, you wouldn’t be able to accomplish it at Fraser Coast.

A good option in Yellowknife
I’ve stayed at a few different hotels in Yellowknife, and this one was great. Each room is an apartment, so there’s a nice sitting area, cooking facilities and separate bedrooms. I was only there for a couple of nights, but I’d definitely choose this hotel if you’re in the city for a longer stay given the fantastic room amenities and the good location (within walking distance of the main street, although a little farther from Old Town than some other hotel options).
