“Overall not bad, need improvement”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

The location isn't that bad though!
The room is clean, no smell.
We can hear someone arguing next to our room :(
When we asked for late check-out, the Asian-look guy didn't allow us to do so. We tried to ask the other guy, they accepted. It would help a lot if the hotel has this arrangement and I believe most hotels do.
We spent 3 nites there. We put the door tag requesting room cleaning, the trash bin was clean on the 1st day but not the 2nd and 3rd day. The towel that we requested to clean, no one took it away throughout our stay. Need improvement!

Housekeeper walked in without knocking, saw me turned around and never came back to clean room. Another day, emptied trash, made bed, left room -- no new towels novacuum. Front desk staff never smiles

Room Tip: Get one of the bigger rooms, standards are way too small.

I was in Room 308 for one week to see the auroras and the room was quite clean. I usually judge a room by the clean white sheets and the bathroom. Both lived to my expectations. The lobby and registration area had a clean simple look. My room had a Keurig coffee maker. If you go downstairs, you have more of a selection like lemon tea and Starbucks. I supplied my room with those selections. I couldn't figure why my back started hurting and it was because of the chair in the room. It felt like I was sitting on wires. The chair needs to be reupholstered with a more cushiony bottom. There were 2 days where the room was only partially serviced. The trash was taken out, however the bed was not made on Wednesday and Friday. As far as convenience goes, the hotel is about five blocks from the center of town. Most of the restaurants and the one supermarket are downtown, so you do have to walk to get to any of them. Even though it was a non smoking room, I can still smell smoke from the 1st floor. They might consider leaving the non smoking floors on the bottom, and the smoking floors on top as "hot air rises". There is a free shuttle to and from the airport in Yellowknife.

Was in Yellowknife in October and June/July for work and they booked me into this hotel. Nice place that felt like a home away from home while there for an extended stay. I had one of the apartment suites and it was nice to have a separate living area. The bed was AMAZING! One of my coworkers is planning to buy that exact bed as he enjoyed his sleep that much. The internet was sometimes slow, but I'm not sure if that was the hotel's problem or the service in YK. Front desk staff are super friendly and willing to help out where they can. Rooms were extremely clean!!!!

Room108 was clean, and bed was comfortable. Small fridge and microwave were added advantages, BUT the room was UNBEARABLY HOT even with a portable air cooling system going full blast all night. This is a problem that Management was well aware of, and a 10% discount off the full fare cost on a future stay was offered, but in my opinion is minimal compensation for such an unpleasant experience.

Room Tip: Pick a room that has a thermostat in the room.

My stay in Capital Suites was really comfortable, and homely. I am staying in a suite and it is really nice and big. We have a great stay. Trish is very helpful and accommodating. Despite some administrative hiccups on my side, she readily helps us to resolve the issue. Really appreciate her effort to go the extra mile. It will definitely be my stay for my next trip to Yellowknife.

Can't comment on the swimming pool as I have no way to check it out at -42 deg outside.

Capital Suites Yellowknife was great!
The staff were helpful and friendly, like arriving at someone's home, the rooms were top notch. The room and its amenities were as nice or nicer (and all in proper working order)..
The lobby also had a guest computer and a nice coffee maker, the convenience of this was also greatly appreciated.

Location wise:
For someone like me travelling in business trip, Capital Suites is a big plus, as I used to come back to my room between my meetings breaks,
The manager Ali Mirza & the front office staff were very courteous.

So, don't miss all of this :)

Thank You for your enthusiastic review Hani l. The Management & Staff at the Capital Suites have been working hard on the cleanliness & guest service response that the guest receives at the Hotel. We believe our location works well for our guest's, just a 5 minute walk to downtown Yellowknife but away from all the downtown traffic & noise. It helps that all our rooms have some form of cooking appliance, our 1 & 2 bedroom suites have full kitchens & our standard/studio suites have a micowave.Some of our rooms have the small Kuerig coffee makers however we do offer a much larger capacity Kuerig coffee maker in the Lobby area which is available to all guests.For guests that prefer to not carry their laptops with them yes we do indeed offer a computer with internet access in our lobby & a small bar fridge, hope to offer more than one at some point. Again we thank you for your stay & review & look forward to your return Hani l.
