My husband and I visited Whitehorse December 20-December 25 to get married under the Northern Lights. We stayed in 3 places (Skyy, Inn on the Lake, Best Western) and we can say the Skyy had the absolute best beds and nicest accommodations for the money.
Unfortunately, we got there during a the first bad cold snap of the winter (-38 Celcius) and over Christmas when pretty much everything was closed so we did not get to eat at Volare and can't really comment on the staff because it was a skeleton crew at that point. I can tell you the truck-stop restaurant place next door makes a darned good taco salad though.
The Skyy is very convenient to the airport (you can walk), but it's a ways from town which is too bad because if I came back to Whitehorse I'd prefer to stay at the Skyy overall, but it's location is its downfall, at least for a tourist. For a business traveler, it would be awesome.
