I stayed at the BW Gold Rush for 3 weeks straight in January 2012 as part of a business trip. Also used their conference facilities for 2 of the weeks. I was in a 4th floor room at the back of the hotel, which was very quiet and well maintained, with a king bed, fridge and microwave. All very convenient for long trips. They also do have a couple of suites with full kitchen facilities. The staff here is so friendly and helpful, from the front desk and catering staff right to the cleaning crew. There is a pub/restaurant, which has a decent variety of daily specials and regular features but can get very crowded and noisy. Don't worry though .. the convenient location of this hotel puts at least 10 good restaurants (Antoinettes, Burnt Toast Cafe, Cork and Bull to name a few) within no more than a 5 minute walk. There is a computer and printer on the main floor and each of the guest floors, a small workout room and an area where you can exchange paper backs and magazines. Parking is a bit limited, especially spaces with plugins, but people are pretty ingenious about sharing plugins with multiple adapters, etc.

The High Country Inn is also owned by the same group, and is currently being fully renovated. I have stayed in both hotels and would recommend both of them. High Country does have the better restaurant, but is further from the downtown area.

The hotel has a free airport shuttle, and tour companies are available in the lobby area to pick you up for many Yukon adventures.

Room Tip: 4th floor rooms at the back of the hotel are very quiet.

Overall a very comfortable stay for the 4 days we were in Whitehorse, front desk staff, housekeeping were all very nice. Gentleman driving the shuttle was terrific - I was annoyed that guests didn't tip the poor guy with all the baggage he was handling for both arrival and departure trips. Within easy walking distance to numerous restaurants and shops in the immediate area with the location on Main St. The microwave and refrigerator were nice to have in the room. Popped into another hotel around the corner for breakfast one morning and what a difference, front desk person wasn't that friendly or welcoming. Look forward to returning to Whitehorse and will definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our two night stay here. Clean, updated, spacious room. Very friendly staff. Free wifi was fast. Bed was very comfortable. We didn't use the fridge or microwave because our stay was short, but great addition to the room. Good location for walking around town.

With limited choices in the Whitehorse area, this hotel is very good. The shuttle from the airport to the hotel is roughly about 30 minutes. They are courteous drivers.

Pay no attention to the lobby as it doesn't have that "inviting" feel, but the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff at the desk were very helpful and friendly.

Breakfasts at the hotel restaurant was good, too. I recommend exploring the main street by foot as there are many restaurants and gift shops in that vicinity.

Traveling with our dog, we always appreciate a hotel that gives us a good quality room, without charging a premium. This was a very nice large room, very comfortable and up to date. The beds are very comfortable, nice cushy towels, etc. The wifi has recently been upgraded and is the fastest I have had on this trip. My only complaint is that the parking lot is far away from the door and it is -26F tonight. Unfortunately, the northern discount is no longer in effect but at $129 it was only $20 more than I paid for MUCH less the last time we were in town. We will make this our normal place to stay in Whitehorse.
