I have traveled to the Explorer Hotel on and off for company business every week for the last year or so. As a regular, I valued the Explorer for its wonderful front desk staff. No task is ever to big or too small, and the staff are ready and willing to make the impossible possible. They always made sure that I had the room I like and were always able to accommodate my last minute business needs, even in busy periods. Whenever I checked in, I was greeted with a smile and a warmth that really made the hotel my home away from home, and my time in Yellowknife while working away from my home and family after a ten hour plane journey, that much bearable.
Trader's Grill offers great food, but a little pricey for what you are getting, and the lounge (when it is open), is a great place to spend unwinding after a hard day's work. The rooms are comfy, but could do with better lighting. And the housekeeping staff really do a good, consistent job cleaning. While it is a shame that the hotel doesn't offer facilities for long term stays, such as refrigerators, microwaves, on site laundry facilities (even a coin operated washer and dryer), or room service after 9pm, it is a decent place for a business traveler to stay while in the great white north. I would like to thank Amber, Jinette, Kelly, Daniel, Sally and all the others that made my time, and my last drawn out months painless!
