Friendly staff that take PPE seriously, housecleaners that respect your privacy, acceptable internet, and comprehensive quarrentine plans. Good meals from in-house restaurant, though breakfasts & lunches are outsourced to a nearby motel that cares nothing for PPE (the meals there are still good though). Could use reclining chairs in rooms for quarrentining travelers, and laundry services for personal effects.

Not perfect, but you could do much worse for a two week quarrentine location. Worth a recommendation.

Very nice hotel. Right on ALCAN highway. Plenty of parking for single vehicles, if towing a trailer there is some space to park behind the hotel. Easy walk (150 yards) to restaurant. On-site restaurant is not open yet (was there 1 May). Hot water to shower is very hot…check temp out before stepping into shower. Thought the card list showing items in room and how much you will be charged if you break something is a bit over the top, I would hope customers staying there don’t really need this actually.

Clean, comfortable rooms and amazing staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling into whitehorse that needs easy access to the airport as it is across the street. no troubles with anything on site but could've used extra amenities like a small gym, sauna, steam room, etc.

I was forced to select a more expensive suite at this hotel as my original booking was canceled (by the hotel, even though I told them not to), under the understanding that I would rebook directly through the hotel instead of Booking.com. Unfortunately, that screwed me over as I ended up not being able to book the original room I had, which they told me was available at the government rate. I had to purchase a more expensive room, as it was only one available on their site, which half of the equipment in the room (that made it more expensive) was either broken/not working at all, or had major damage and limited functionality (Inc: Jacuzzi, shower, and fireplace). When I arrived, (2-3 hours after check-in), the room wasn't available, which I then had to wait for it to be cleaned. The hotel does not accommodate any passengers who are disabled and unable to use the stairs as there is no elevator. The room had a weird smell to it, I just opened the balcony to air it out. The balcony was a shared balcony (connected to another suite) and both glass/screen doors were unlocked/open. So anybody could have came in my suite had I not noticed. The overall stay was terrible, I will not be back here and I highly recommend staying at any other hotel. I went to another local hotel just to have dinner and felt more welcomed there as a non-guest, then I did at the hotel I paid nearly $300 for (one night).

We stayed here as locals wanting a little getaway during the pandemic. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Not too much noise (we stayed on 2nd floor), and the restaurant (Tony's Pasta & Pizza) is exceptional. The hotel could benefit from having a breakfast option available for guests, or information/discount for the Airport Chalet next door. Also would like to be able to adjust room temperature. Overall, a lovely getaway - would definitely recommend to those visiting from out of town.

This place shows what a difference good people make. It's quite old and has an in-floor heating system that makes some rooms uncomfortably and uncontrollably warm.

Front desk staff are very helpful in trying to deal with the situation. All three staff during our stay were very nice and efficient.

Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and quiet with refrigerators, and bathrooms have high quality fixtures. With some paint touch-ups and better heating controls it would be a 5 instead of a 4.

A number of flights leave Whitehorse very early so the location is unbeatable. You can walk from the lobby to airport check-in in less than 10 minutes!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I am glad to hear that you had a good experience with our staff. We work hard to find quality workers for the all areas of the hotel. We are currently changing all the heating/cooling units in our hotel rooms as we are realizing they aren't working as well as they should be now. The units on the second floor are being changed this week, and then we will tackle the first floor in the spring (first floor has radiant floor heating for the winter). We are also planning to do a refresh for the hotel rooms in the near future too.

SKKY Hotel in Whitehorse is a very comfortable hotel with great staff. We stayed in a beautiful air-conditioned room with a balcony. The bed was very comfortable leading us to have one of the best sleeps. Wonderful shower as well. The staff were very friendly and went above and beyond with their help. The restaurant served a very tasty meal at a good price with great service. I would recommend staying here without a doubt.

I stayed at this Hotel last month and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooms were spacious and very clean and the beds and pillows were like sleeping on a cloud. The rain shower was excellent. The staff at front desk and housekeeping were extremely polite and friendly. One of the most amazing view was from my room overlooking the beautiful mountains. The hotel is across the street from the airport, approximately 5-7 minutes walk which I enjoyed rather than taking a cab. This has been a great experience and look forward to returning soon.

The best hotel in Whitehorse. I normally stay for a few days when visiting my local office. Although the SKKY is not located downtown, it is worth the trip by car or taxi to Downtown. The quality of he stay more than compensates for the short drive.

Great location opposite the airport. It also has an attached Italian restaurant. Hotel users can also access the nearby gym.

Hotel room was great. Very spacious and high ceilings. The shower looks great too. The decor is pretty modern and still good looking even though it is starting to show its age.

They have free slippers, comment forms, things thay are not really typically seen on other hotels so I give them credit for that.

Shuttle runs for all major flights in/out of Whitehorse. It leaves roughly an hour and half before the departure time. This hotel does not have a hot tub or exercise room. Better Bodies offers full access to guests and is a ten minute drive away. The closest pool and hot tub is at the Canada Games Centre, ten minute drive away as well. No hotels in Whitehorse have a hot tub and only a few have exercise rooms.

There are at least two companies that will pick you up at the hotel and take you to their aurora viewing facility. They will also provide winter clothing including boots, jackets, gloves and hats if required. There is a bit too much light interference right at the hotel to get great aurora viewing, but it is visible on most clear nights. Getting out of town on a tour that has a clear line of sight to the North with no light interference is your best option.

Yes there is a lovely nature walk which takes about 25 minutes. Taxis take 7 minutes and there are also public buses.

How far to the downtown? Is there a bus, etc. to downtown?
Answer from James McCullough
Kelowna, Canada38 contributions
There is also a trail that leads to a staircase behind the airport. That's much faster than walking down two mile hill. There is bus service behind the hotel that takes you downtown. The buses in Whitehorse run infrequently, however, and don't run on Sundays.
