Was sound proof way better than other places in yellowknife
Pillows were too big gave us both sore necks
- Airport shuttle; - My room was very big; - Helpful staff; - Great location too.
Very clean and well run establishment.
Other people's hair on shower curtain. Told receptionist, but wasn't dealt with. Shower water temperature inconsistent. Too hot suddenly.
Just about everything.
Liked the size of the room.
Paid with debit, had to leave a deposit. No problems here, received it back at end of stay. 1 week later when at home, found we had been charged with our debit for another nights stay, on the same day I noticed it. Called the hotel, transfered to accounting clerk who could not explain it and was quite unbelieving that we were not actually checked in. Took 5 days and many unreturned calls, until after almost a week I noticed the debit was reversed and had been returned. No phone call of explanation. Not impressed. Will Not stay again.
Very friendly staff everyone very helpful. Dining is excellent,
the room was clean and linen.
Old bath room, you can see the tiles need to do a new one.
Good location, clean and comfortable room. We could enjoy Aurora, too beautiful for words, through the window of room 504 on Sep. 18, 2014. For Aurora viewer, highly recommended.
Very quiet. Great food. Good location. Awesome views.
Lounge and restaurant hours. I tried 3 times to have a beverage and an appetizer in the lounge after a long day of hiking. Saturday all the seats were reserved. Sunday it was closed during lunch (I didn't want a full meal) and Monday it was closed altogether.
Clean, large rooms, good location. Good restaurant with excellent Sunday Brunch
service, food, view from the 8th floor
Food and serving staff were great. Front desk staff were very helpful. Great hotel
Clean, quiet, free parking and wi-Fi. Excellent food on site, close to everything downtown
The location - the room and view - the staff were helpful and friendly
The elevator doors were scratched or dirty
Nicely situated on a hill overlooking the city. Staff were from very nice to hopeless. Comfortable beds, nice view. Plenty of amenity materials each day.
Very noisy inside hotel (corridors, doors, thin walls). Bathroom very small. Carpets very not clean. Advertise Saturday night Prime Rib special, then don't have it anymore at 7.30 pm. Restaurant pricy.
The location is terrific (always first one dropped off and last one picked up for all shuttles (airport, Aurora Village); easy walk to most downtown places and just a little bit of a hike to Old Town and the lake). The staff is lovely and the restaurant is the prettiest room in Yellowknife.
Slightly dated facility overall, but easily the best we saw in Yellowknife.
location is great, steps to shopping centre, grocery store,restaurant,and visitor centre. views are good too.
obviously people smoke in their room and once they do, all the other rooms smell smoke too(cause their air conditioner is connected), I stay here for 3 nights and smell that annoying smell everyday, I suggest the hotel impose a serious amout of fine for smoking inside.
Front desk staff were responsive and friendly.
Room was old and in need of renovations and I stayed in the 'renovated' rooms.
room service food arrived cold
The hotel was well situated in downtown Yellowknife. I could walk many places (except for the excessive cold).
There is nothing that I didn't like. I'm used to hotels having a pool, which you don't, but there may be good reason why not. There was a brief confusion about who was paying for my stay, even though I had indicated this when I booked on line. Speaking of which -- when I tried to phone my reservation, the number I was given didn't work, and I couldn't find another phone number for you, not even on your web page.
Bed was great. view was spectacular. restaurants were very good.
TV was almost dead but i understand they are replacing all of them shortly.
