Absolutely HUGE rooms. It has a living room, kitchen and living room. The young man at the front desk was absolutely fantastic. He obviously loved his town and went out of his way to tell me all of the really cool things I should go and see. The breakfast is a continental breakfast but was pretty underwhelming. There's not too... More

This was our first trip to YK to visit family. We travelled with our one year old son who got sick. Emergency room sick. The staff went so far above and beyond in helping and supporting us that I was floored. Truly impressive. The woman behind the desk with a long brown ponytail (I'm so sorry I don't know your... More

Room was massive complete with kitchen, dining area, living room and separate bedroom with its own tv. Was a little outdated but extremely clean. One big issue was no air conditioning complete with 34 celsius, high humidity and thick wildife smoke made for a stale/hot and muggy stay. Not typical yellowknife weather though so not sure how often you'd really... More

Thank you for the feedback and I am glad you enjoyed your stay! I agree it has been a very muggy summer and the lack of A/C has been an issue. I look forward to having you stay with us again. Thank you, Jenni More

I stayed here for two weeks on a business trip. My apartment was clean and well appointed. The front desk help was outstanding. The only downside is you are at the mercy of your neighbors consideration or lack thereof. Screaming kids, running in the halls, chairs being dragged across floors. But that happens in other hotels too. As far as... More

In Yellowknife for a week.Our two bedroom suite was clean and well appointed. Beds where very good/with extra pillows and good lighting beside the bed for reading. ( very important to me).Black out curtains were nice as we stayed in july and it helps for a good nights sleep. Each bedroom came w/a fan, and as we where on the... More

I can't believe that yellowknife can't do better than this facility for a business traveller. Paper thin walls, party central for all the summer young guests. Over booked, had to settle for most expensive room that didn't even reach 2 star status. Furniture and fixtures are from the 70's at best. If this is the best Yellowknife has to offer,... More

Very little lived up to expectations, based on the price paid for this apartment-style hotel. To be fair, I received a free upgrade to a two bedroom apartment, without asking. That was nice. However, the hotel has no air conditioning, which, even in a Yellowknife summer, is something that's required. Interestingly, when I inquired about the lack of air conditioning,... More

I stay here for business and personal when traveling out of the Canadian Arctic. I like having the suites as I sometimes stay an extra day to visit with friends. Nice to have them over for a snack and I can also have my own food without having to eat in resturants. Always clean and the staff are very friendly... More

I recently travelled to Yellowknife on business and decided to stay at Coast Towers because they have suites and I have to come back for a week in August and am bringing my teenage son (who is at the age where he would prefer his own floor let alone his own bedroom). I informed the front desk person that I... More
