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

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... More

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... More
