I visited Yellowknife in late November on a combined work and personal trip. My friend suggested that I try the Capital Suites because they offer complete furnished executive apartments for less than a hotel room. Restaurants in Yellowknife are few and far between and can be pretty expensive. Also I get a travel allowance from my company so if I don't spend money in restaurants, I can pocket the allowance.
The Suites (I guess it used to be called the Gardens) turned out to be a great place to stay for the 4 days I was there. The Front Desk lady was super friendly and got me settled in a nice one bedroom that is bigger than my apartment at home! The rest of the staff was helpful as well - even the cleaners were cheerful. The Suites have nice furniture, big cable TV and the kitchens have everything you need for cooking. (I ordered pizza mostly but made my own breakfast). The place even has a business center and a small gym.
The place is a couple of blocks from downtown. I walked to my meetings and was happy to have a little distance between me and the busy downtown bar scene - even though I did spend a couple of fun evenings down there. Everybody should try the "Strange Range" at least once.
I will certainly be staying there when I go back again in April. This place is so comfortable and convenient you really have to wonder why anybody would bother staying in a hotel room.
