I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in August 2012. I was a little apprehensive of what might be available for accommodations and services in northern Canada, but I was pleasantly surprised. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and everything was more or less in good working order (couple of minor issues - nothing serious). The hotel was not "downtown" but the town is small enough that it is a relatively easy walk to wherever you are going. The prices are high, but seem normal for the North. The wifi and business centre computers are super slow at the hotel, however I understand this is typical. I had a special request and the front desk clerk really helped me out - which I appreciated! I did find it a little odd that there was no peep hole in my door to the hallway and no security chain/bar on the door of my room. There was a lock on the room door though. Because of this and what I had read on Trip Advisor previously, I put a chair in front of the door at night - probably no real need to do that though it made me feel better . In fact, I had no issues with security. The walls to the rooms are really thin - if someone moves a metal clothes hanger in the room next door or turns on the TV you can hear it through the walls. You can also hear everything in the hallways. The temperature controls for the room seemed rather erratic: one night too cold and the next 2 nights it was too hot! Although I brought pants and a sping coat I still did not bring enough warm clothes for August in the Canadian North! Overall the stay was comfortable and better than expected. It seemed to be one of the nicer hotels available in town and I would definitely return here again if I was in Iqaluit.
