This is a fine hotel, probably an older property but it's been updated and kept in good shape with sort of a "theme" decor in the lobby. Everything was clean and in good repair. Good front desk staff as well as the small lounge/restaurant. I'd stay here again.

This hotel has amazing staff and it's a great location for Whitehorse. The room was expensive for what it was ($175/night) for a normal hotel room, but this is high season. We had to leave our fan on to block out the creaky floors of our neighbors around us. I would stay here again if I wanted to be in... More

We arrived in Whitehorse on a motorcycle, from Tok, AK, through road construction and 90 degree heat. I groaned as I walked from the parking lot to the lobby, knowing I'd have to help haul the bags from the bike that distance in the heat. The friendly women at the desk lifted my spirits and made the first trip to... More

I'd recommend this while in Whitehorse, YT. Elevators provided to all floors. Decor is great for the Whitehorse area. It is convenient to local shopping and the people are friendly and helpful. You get the feeling that they really want you to enjoy your stay with them.

I revisited this hotel on my last visit and again enjoyed the rooms. The only concern I had on this trip was that they had a cover charge in place for some live music in the lounge of the hotel. I would think that guests should be exempt, considering we are paying a premium to stay here and that the... More

This hotel is downtown right on Main Street, and this is where most of the best shopping and nightlife is. On Thursdays - Sundays there is entertainment in this hotel's bar. The music stops at 10:30 so as to ensure guests can go to sleep if they desire. There are great hiking trails close by, as well as the Millennium... More

Checked late at night and just wanted to catch some shut-eye after flying all day. The room was quite basic but I noticed it was warm - where's the AC? Checked the thermostat and it did nothing (even all the way down). Then I looked up on the shelf and saw a fan and thought - there's my AC! I... More

This hotel is more than 100 years old yet very modern and comfy inside. Room is big enough. Conveniently located to a lot of business. Best assets are its staff, everybody is cheering and friendly. Breakfast was not included in the room fare, and we tried the on-site restaurant, reasonably priced and worth trying.

We stayed here for one night in June 2014. The rooms were fine and the quirkiness of the layout of the hotel quite interesting but we didn't get a very good nights sleep due to there being a live band playing on the night of our stay. If loud drums aren't your thing and you're planning on an early night,... More
