I recently attended the weeklong International Congress for Circumpolar Health in Yellowknife. We travled all day, from the southern part of the U.S. to the northern part of Canada. When we arrived at the hotel where we had reservations, we were informed that we did not have reservations. When we showed them the confirmation code, they said it wasn't their code. Furthermore, they had no other rooms, and neither did the 5 or so places they called on our behalf. Not sure what to do (sleep in the rental car?), we went to The Explorer Hotel to wait for colleague's arrival, hoping we could sleep on her floor. We stopped at the front desk to share our sad story, and they were so wonderful and helpful and concerned. They were able to secure us something temporary for the night, and then to move us around to other rooms as they could throughout the week. We really appreciated them going above and beyond the call of duty to help us out. Sylia, Amber, Kellie - thank you!! And Sally (the bartender), thank you!!
The rooms we stayed in were large and spacious (although another colleague's room was quite small.) Beds were comfy, rooms were clean. Towels were a little threadbare (one actually tore from my dragging it across my back!) The restaurant and bar were both good. Workout room small and the main piece of cross training equipment was out of order. The location was good, and we jogged around Niven and Frame lakes on several days. Free internet access and computers in two small offices on the main floor (which were almost always occupied).
