Westmark Whitehorse Hotel and Conference Center

Reviewed September 18, 2013

this hotel seems to be changing its name - the signs with the hotel name are the temporary type - we went for a walk about town and found a grocery store and a subway not too far away to get the items we needed - lots of places are boarded up - perhaps the economy or perhaps the season - I don't know if this hotel is well located as we were only there one night - rooms were large and clean - no view to speak of - also the room was of a comfy temperature

Just completed a tour of Canada and Alaska. Whitehorse was on our intiniary. Arriving very hungry and exhausted we had dinner in the restaurant at the hotel. The food was very good and Neil, our waiter, was out to make sure we have a super evening with his jokes and humor. After being on a coach and train for 8 hours we just wanted to eat and sleep. However we walked out a few kinks to the downtown shopping section to find everything closed by that time. Whitehorse is a large area with fishing, hiking, rafting, hot springs, all your local stores including Wal-Mart. There is a trolly that runs during the day and a shuttle bus runs on the 30 minute mark to take you through out the town. We did get a chance to hike along the river to the Fish Ladder, one of the "to see items" on our list. The fish ladder had just closed for the season that week. We enjoyed the walk to the dam and just to view a fish ladder was new to me. Beavers had cut trees down all along the trail. Was a photo moment also, not everyday you come upon trees laying down and fresh little chips carved to a point. Our last night at Whitehorse we ate at Giorgio's Cuccina, Authentic Italian Food. Trust me, it was wonderful. (Be aware if you travel into the Yukon area, food is very expensive compared to Tennessee) We was not accustomed to paying that much for a meal. The city was clean and looked to be well kept. The SS Klondike and the Trolly Car along the River is a nice treat. Have your camera ready for History greets you in the Klondike Country.

The hotel is past it's prime and very worn. Second floor rooms are noisy and my wife and I as well as several other guests swear that the floors moving (or vibrating). On site restaurant was not good. It is more tired than the hotel and food marginal.

We stayed here for two nights in August on our cruise tour with Holland America. We arrived about 4 in the afternoon. It had been raining some. When we got to our room we discovered it was extremely warm-I would guess about 85 degrees. Of course they don't have air conditioning but we did have two fans which we immediately turned on and put by the window. I left the room to find where the ice machines were and noticed that in a different wing on our floor, virtually everyone's door was open and they were sitting in the doorway. When I went back to the room I moved one fan to the doorway since the hall was air conditioned and cooler. It cooled some but not much. Even with the outside temperature down near 60 at night our room remained very warm. I realize they rarely need air conditioners but it was awful. I can't even tell you what the rest of the room was like because we tried to be elsewhere. I will say the people behind the desk were very nice.It was centrally located to places to go. There was kind of a sketchy looking hotel across the street and down a ways but we avoided it.

The rooms were roomy enough and the laundry facilities were great. The Restaurant was brilliant, and our meals were fabulous, including the BBq in the courtyard area. The Manager walked around each evening asking if everything was okay which was a nice touch. It is in a good location and very clean. We were very pleased with our stay here and it felt like a large family home

We stayed here two nights on our Holland America cruise tour. We were given a ground floor room that had windows to the open patio area. During the summer they use it for a restaurant. The windows were small that opened and had heavy curtains as it does not get dark till 11pm. Also there was a fan on a stand. The restaurant got a bit busy evenings but with the TV on it drained out the talking. Room was older but comfortable with two queen beds and a good size flat screen TV. Nice bathroom and lots of hot water. Small coffee bar. Front desk was very helpful and nice. Wifi in the room and in the lobby. We did not eat at the hotel. We did walk around the area and down to the river.
Very good for two nights in a small town.

We were very happy with our 2 night stay here in wonderful Whitehorse. The hotel was very clean, with a nice outside patio area for lunching in the sunshine. Downtown is literally just a few steps away, as is the magnificent Yukon river. They have a courtesy bus to the airport which was very useful at 5am! Free Wifi was a bonus. Only criticism was the lack of air con in what was a very hot summer, but extra fans has been put in our room. The restaurant was good as was the Frantic Follies show! Recommended.
