Editor's Analysis
Updated Oct 12, 2014
Overview
This hotel is just under a 10-minute drive from the Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport (YXY) and is about a 12-minute walk of downtown Whitehorse. It is well suited for guests who want to be within a short drive from the airport, but still have the option of wandering Whitehorse on foot.

All of the 99 rooms at this non-smoking hotel have free Wi-Fi, a flat screen TV, a coffeemaker, a hair dryer and an iron and ironing board. Guests can choose between standard rooms with king, queen or double beds, or more spacious suites furnished with queen or king beds, a sofabed and a mini-fridge.

Pets are permitted at this hotel in select rooms, although a sanitation fee of up to $200 may apply if the pet has an accident during their stay. There is a maximum of two pets allowed per room.

There are a number of restaurants within a 5- to 10-minute walk from the hotel. On-site amenities include free parking, a gym, a sauna, accessible elevators to all levels, laundry and a free airport shuttle that runs according to scheduled flight times.

The Fireweed Community Market, an outdoor market that runs from spring to fall, is just under a 15-minute walk away. Whitehorse General Hospital is just over a 5-minute drive away. Air travellers should expect just under a 10-minute drive between the hotel and the airport. (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

The Bad
While there were a number of compliments from guests in the reviews used for this analysis, there were also a large number of guest criticisms. Guests complained most commonly about aging decor and about noise disturbances.

A few guests complained about noise disturbances from guests in the hallways and from adjacent rooms. One guest complained about noise from a barking dog carrying through the hallways.

Some guests said that the decor was aging and that updates to bathrooms, linens and furniture were recommended. 

A handful of guests complained of unpleasant odours in the hallways, which some could not name specifically, while others linked them to cigarette smoke, even though this hotel is 100% non-smoking.

During the renovations, the on-site restaurant and bar were closed, and remain so through May 1, 2013, which some guests found inconvenient. Guests were given a voucher for a nearby restaurant, Ricky's Restaurant, located two blocks from the hotel, but some guests thought a number of their menu items were expensive.
