This is not the best hotel of all but better than many others in this town. Good bar (Gold Pan) with good foods and local beers selection. A little gym well equip renovate last year. Early 19' decoration in the lobby and the bar/restaurant, lots of Northen Antique charm. Just 2 minutes walk for down town. Not a lot of...

Hotel was in a good location. Located at one end of the main street. Lobby is very poor with little options for information. Breakfast is fine, nothing special, coffee is good. Room was nice but extremely noisy from up above. Just walking all night long. Seemed like staff quarters but told not. Recommendation would be staying top floor. Ask for...

First, you will probably be staying here if you go in the winter to view the Aurora borealis. It's not the only hotel in town but it is the most centrally located. My first recommendation is to not stay here either Friday or Saturday night. It's perfectly fine any other nights, but if you come a day early to rest...

The facility was typical of Whitehorse in that is was not fancy. It was clean and the location we terrific. We were within 4 blocks of the Yukon River and most of the downtown shops and restaurants. I would ask for a room opposite of the end where the bar and restaurant is located. We were out from 10PM -2AM...

The lobby of this hotel is fantastic - oak panelling and tiny oak pigeonholes behind the desk that look right out of the gold rush era. Stuffed moose head on the wall. The actual rooms are way more modern and perfectly comfortable - even a cut above - just not as interesting as the lobby! Some nice additions - fridge...

Outstanding, funky hotel in downtown Whitehorse. Great bar and restaurant. Great staff. Good laundry room and machines. Walking distance to shops and the river walk. Airport shuttle. I have stayed there the past three years and have enjoyed it each time.

Although part of the Great Western chain, a very individual hotel. Situated on the Main Street in Whitehorse it is spread over 4 floors with well appointed rooms. The Bar/Restaurant is on a sports theme with TVs showing various sports and games - being Canada this was mainly Ice Hockey and Basketball ! The food was good, generous portions with...

This is a great hotel, well located, clean, quiet and comfortable. It's not new and the elevator is slow but who cares?! We had a great stay. We'll stay again next time we're in Whitehorse. The restaurant was fine for breakfast. There was entertainment in the evening but we were up on the third floor so we didn't hear anything.

If you are looking for a five start hotel, this isn't it. But if you want a nice clean hotel, with friendly staff and a good restaurant/bar the Best Western in Whitehorse is a good place to stay. The only negative thing we experienced is it is an older hotel so the floors squeak and the person over us was...
