I spent an unexpected night at this hotel on April 2, 2013 due to a cancelled flight. I knew that my son's company, Simpson Air, uses this hotel when they are in Yellowknife. From the moment I checked in the staff were extremely courteous and helpful. I was given a room on the 8th floor with a nice view of the city. The room looked recently updated and had a comfortable king-size bed with a duvet and lots of pillows, brand new drapes and a pleasant decor. The bathroom was basic but had everything I needed. The TV was an old box TV but it had a good picture and a decent selection of satellite channels. I had dinner in the restaurant, Traders Grill, and it was excellent! The special was Rack of Lamb with Scalloped Potatoes (I was told the chef's name was Hugh) and I couldn't have asked for better in any cosmopolitan city in the world. It was perfectly cooked, medium rare as I had asked for.There was a lovely circular fireplace for atmosphere. The front desk was extremely helpful with shopping directions, calling taxies and organizing wake-up calls. Things in the North can sometimes be rough and ready but not this hotel. I would definitely stay here again!
