“Clean and”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

This is a new hotel in Whitehorse and they provide great service as well as a very clean room, nicely decorated and very quiet. The restaurant has excellent food. The staff were pleasant and most helpful. Loved the bed - great night's sleep. It is across from the airport so if you are renting a car, it's very easy to get to. No elevator, but only had to go up one flight of stairs

For everyone that has the opportunity to stay at what I call the best hotel in Whitehorse, Yukon you will not regret it.
I arrived on the last plane in on a Tuesday evening (12:30am) and was met by their shuttle service - Taken directly to the Skky Hotel.
Upon arrving a questioned the outside - its very deceiving. I was met by the front desk staff - very pleasant person - I was taken back at the warmth and beauty inside.
I proceeded to a very clean, well designed room - felt like home.
For the remaining time at the hotel, I was given top service - got not do enough for the quests of the hotel. The restaurant attached to the hotel is called the Volare - best food in town - service and staff great. no complains of any kind.

Hotel staff will make any arrangements necessary. I had the pleasure of going on a Northern Tale experience and to Muktuk's - to see the sled dogs and meet the owner who has won 24/25 Yukon quest races, also to the Hot springs.
These are only three trips available to you and arranged throught the hotel front desk staff. Best times ahead.

Again - no words really express the feelings for the great service and staff at the SKKY HOTEL - you just have to go yourself - ENJOY when you do.

I stayed here two nights, mainly to have my car serviced for a cross continent trip. It is right across from the airport, away from downtown, on the Alaska Highway. The parking lot is butt ugly and the appearance of the building is, well, minimalist. I was told that some landscaping will be in order next year. Attached to it appears to be an abandoned restaurant or gas station, which does not help the impressions. Inside, however, it gets better. Now I certainly have stayed in plusher places, but I was warmly welcomed and impressed with the tasteful job done rehabbing what otherwise would be a normal motel layout. What this place really has going for it is the excellent Volare restaurant. Very seldom when travelling do I eat in the same place two nights in a row. The Thai seafood bowl was outstanding the first night, when only a few customers were in the place. The next night, Friday, the place was jumping and the service suffered some, but the baked brie for the appetizer and duck main course were also excellent. The word minimalist, however, applies to the Continintal breakfast.
While there is no pool or fitness center, just a mile down the road is the wonderful Canada Games complex, for a modest fee, with a great swimming facility, gym, ice rinks, etc.

We have stayed in hotels all over the world...never would have expected to find a hotel of such quality in the Far North! Seems like a boutique chain hotel...great restaurant and bar, large room, modern furnishings, outstanding bed, big flatscreen, fabulous shower...the type of boutique hotel you would expect in a big city. Not to be missed if you're in Whitehorse!!

Not only is the Skky nicely appointed, it has high quality staff. I find it very impressive that the front desk, restaurant and bar staff are not only outgoing and friendly but have a professional manner that is not "in your face" Totally comfortable.
After our checkout, realized that we had left a ring on the nightstand. Phoned the hotel and they located it in the room and had it available at the front desk in minutes........How often does that happen!

Although the hotel was not downtown, it was still relatively close to everything. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate you, suggested activities to do, places to go and even showed you pictures of places to visit. They would make your reservations for you.

In particular, Lisa was extremely helpful.

The rooms were very comfortable, the facilities were new, clean and the hotel was well looked after.I would definitely stay at this hotel if I went back to Whitehorse.

We stopped overnight and rented five rooms. This property has had a full multimillion dollar renovation I would estimate within 3 years. The rooms are very well appointed, everything you would want from a quality hotel. Very clean rooms, wireless internet. A shuttle is available from the airport which directly across the Alaska Highway. The beds, linens were comfortable, air conditioning worked well. Breakfast and dinner is available and we used the restaurant for both. The food was excellent, there were eight in our group and we tried everything without any complaints. We returned two weeks later and stayed another night.
