“Convenient, thanks for being Pet-friendly, not clean.”
Reviewed October 15, 2007

I had driven 13 hours, got in about midnight, was fatigued and ready to sleep. I was so glad these folks take dogs no problem. I hadn't expected to bring my dog, but dog-sitter plans fell through. Thankfully, here I could go let my Siberian Husky out between conference sessions, taking place in the same building.

Trying to settle down to sleep, I heard a lot of commotion from where I thought was next to me. It was clearly a lot of sex. I thought, hey, give them a half-hour or so...It didn't quiet down. I called the desk and they said they'd have someone come ask the folks next door to be quieter. We did this three different times til 3 a.m. (some stamina!). Then I went to the front desk and asked to change rooms. After I redressed and left my room, I could hear that the noise wasn't next to me, and the front desk confirmed that--each time I called and they came to investigate, it sounded "quiet" to them in my hallway. We figured out it must be a room upstairs from me. But they cheerfully moved me to another room, which was fine. It was nicely appointed, also. I didn't use the restroom in the new room that night-- I had in the first room, and in this room I went straight to bed.

In the morning, though, I noticed that there were hairs in 3 separate places in the bathroom: on the tub, on the sink edge (right there in plain site) and on the floor. Everything else seemed fine, even nicely done, so this seemed a bit odd. The rest of my stay was peaceful and nice. The restaurant is so-so and so expensive, but obviously the YT is a very expensive place to serve fancy foods.

We stayed for the Yukon quest.
The room we had was on the 3rd floor. very basic room motel room type. nothing luxurious. The walls were painted a shade of gray so that was a little depressing. Carpet was basic, but i guess this is due to the snow/etc and trying to keep the property clean. The sweet potato fries in the restaurant were excellent! Staff seemed very friendly.
go to the museum in town...very nice...
the wildlife preserve..wonderful!!!

  • Liked — central location
  • Disliked — gray walls...and bedspread s instead of comforters..

Nice, with comfortable rooms and central location. The design and ambience is very generic mid-range hotel.

Comfortable beds.

Good breakfasts in the restaurant.

Note that they're claiming to have in-room wireless access, but currently [Feb. 07] do not.

This hotel is in downtown Whitehorse. The hotel is owned by Holland America so it caters to the Alaska cruise line crowd, and as a result, it's over-priced and tries to be a high-end hotel but it clearly isn't. We paid $134 for a double-room at end of July and it was not worth the money. The rooms are renovated but small. Ask for a room on the third-floor--the rooms there are nicer. The staff aren't overly friendly but okay. The restaurant is good but again, overpriced and crowded. There's a free internet kiosk in the lobby and a small gift shop onsite. I would shop around for another hotel in Whitehorse (try the High Country Inn)--the Westmark is over-priced and just doesn't go out of its way to make you feel welcome.

  • Disliked — Too expensive
