We chose the Skky Hotel for our 3 night stay in Whitehorse and were very pleased. The location of the hotel, on the Alaska Highway near the airport, is convenient if you're flying and less than a 10 minute drive to the city center if you are driving.
The room was comfortable with a thermostat controlled a/c system that worked well. We had more than enough room and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom had an updated glass walled shower that was great after a day of exploring and hiking. As noted in other reviews, there isn't a tub, but that wasn't an issue for us. There were no issues with water pressure or temperature. We were on the second floor so experienced no noise from a floor above. The room was also very quiet at night and we heard nothing from adjacent rooms. Our room was facing the back so we had no highway noise and we didn't hear any noise from the airport. I would suggest choosing a second floor room with the knowledge that there is no elevator so you have to cart your bags up the stairs.
The Volare restaurant, which is attached to the hotel, is ranked number 1 in Whitehorse but it was closed during our stay so we can't comment. We found numerous great places to eat after a short ride into Whitehorse.
The included wifi was excellent. We had no problems at all. As noted in other reviews, the included breakfast is quite limited. It was served in some kind of board room while we were there but would be in the restaurant if it was open. We just visited Tim Horton's on our way out each morning.
There is free parking out front which is great. The parking lots is only partially paved so you may have to drive through some rough, potholed sections when coming in.
All in all, this was a great place to stay and I'd come here again without hesitation.
