Excellent, roomy stay in Yellowknife
We are two professional women who stayed for 4 nights. We greatly enjoyed the spacious apartment we stayed in – with two bedrooms, a large living room, a kitchen, and small but good enough bathroom. The beds and linens were very comfortable. We also had a lovely balcony overlooking the city. It was a heat wave there – 31 degrees all day and all night – and there is no airconditioning, but we were able to stay comfortably warm, and it was never uncomfortably hot. I would definitely want to stay there again – loved having the extra space. The furnishings are a bit old but the place was very spacious and comfortable and most important to me, clean.
Cheated and Misinformed
I was a recent guest at this hotel and here’s my take on it:
1) The website doesn’t say that it has no air-conditioning. From someone coming from Miami, Florida with a temperature of > 40 degrees C with the heat index factored in, I will never consider a hotel without an A/C. After traveling for almost 20 hours (4000 miles), I was looking forward to cool weather and a cool room. I had a miserable first night. Slept only for 2 hours since hot air was blowing from my electric fan.
2) This hotel also doesn’t have porters or bellboys. The elevators had stopped working after a fire drill on my last day and I was ready to check out. I was willing to take the stairs if a bellboy or a porter can help me with my luggages. I called the Front Desk and was informed that they didn’t have any. My choices were either to wait until the elevators get fixed or bring all my luggages down myself. I asked for the GM and he sent a maintenance guy for help.
3) On the plus side, the comfort king suite has a decent size, has a nice king size bed, and has 2 flat screen TVs. It’s still not the Marriott nor The 4 Seasons, but hey, you’re in Yellowknife. I plan again to visit Yellowknife next year since my sister lives there. It will be definitely on another hotel.

Second times the charm
This is the second time I’ve stayed here on business and I really like the hotel. Rooms are clean and large. The hotel is close to everything and has some great views from the balcony. Staff was friendly and although I didn’t eat there the food smelled good.
Only thing negative is the lack of air conditioning, but I realize this is the great white north, the summers are very hot and the sun is always up!
Thank you for another good stay.

Family time in Yellowknife
Our family time in Yellowknife was very well spent! We all enjoyed our room along with the beautiful view of the city! We were tourists and busy showing our grandson the city as we know it! The staff were helpful and welcoming as usual and that made a big difference in setting the mood for our week in the city!
