Coast Fraser Tower
We stayed there in Feb 2014. The room is really big with living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The room size is really helpful if you are staying there in winter. Why? With so many jackets, fleeces, boots, scarves …. that you need for the weather, it’s good to have such a big room so that you can really toss all those winter gears around but still find you have space to move around! All the front desk staff was nice and helpful. One little drawback was that the housekeeping was not so up to standard. There were stains on the sink, kitchen wall etc even after their service. Otherwise, it was overall a pleasant stay.

Front desk staff are wonderful and location very convenient!
We needed to change our reservation due to snow in NY and the front desk staff were amazing. Jesica made it very easy to change and made me feel confident that everything would be taken care of. Upon check in Linda was also lovely and handled the entire process with friendliness and efficiency.
The location is great and convenient for pick up from Aurora Village bus but signage on building is lacking so if you depend on GPS make sure you know what the building looks like from phtotos as our GPS got us “close” but not in front of hotel.
We stayed for 3 night and had a large one bdrm suite on 13th floor. Room was nicely decorated and beds were very comfortable. Breakfact was nice, bagels, cereal and yogurt.
My only complaint would be housekeeping–I wasn’t even going to mention in my review since I liked the other staff so much but I took the time to e-mail the front desk manager and housekeeping mgr last week with my observations and no one got back to me. There was food left in our fridge and cigarette butts on our balcony. Later I noticed the vacuuming was not completed under the bed and on Sunday the maid never came to clean our room. We put the service sign out at noon and when we returned at 5pm the room was not cleaned and I had even spoken to her in the hall telling her we wanted it cleaned later. Most tourists return to their rooms about 2am after viwing the Northern Lights so to expect a room to be cleaned on a Sunday after 12:00pm is not out of the question. I will say we did not notify the front desk of any of this while we were there since we were constantly taking naps to be able to stay awake late into the evening to view the Aurora.

Great accommodation at a fair price
We stayed in a 1-bedroom unit for two nights in February 2014. The unit consists of a large living room with a flat-screen TV and door to the balcony (with views of the ice-road), a fully-equipped kitchen with a small table/chairs, a large bedroom (with another TV) and a bathroom (with lots of shampoo, conditioner and skin lotion, which you will need in the winter!). Everything worked well, the staff were lovely and they have GOOD coffee available in the lobby all day long. The stay includes a continental breakfast, which offered juice, cereals, muffins and breads for toasting.
Stayed here for 3 night last month, very happy that I decided to go with this place. Stayed in a 2 bdrm suite that had plenty of space with a full kitchen. All staff were super friendly and service was always great. The only thing I hope they are able to fix one day is the range of the wifi. Worked ok when I sat closer to the entrance of the suite but once I was in either of the bedrooms I couldn’t pick it up anymore. Other than that I was very satisfied with my stay and I will return the next time I’m in the area.
This was a wonderful hotel with nice rooms. Rooms had a balcony, big windows and great views. We had 4 people and stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which had a kitchenette which we found to be extremely spacious and perfect for our needs. The free gym was also handy. The reception staff gave us good tips for seeing the northern lights. The location was within a few minutes walking to downtown. It made our stay at Yellowknife very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.
