I recently stayed here, on advice that it is the best place in Iqaluit. It was a good stay. The 'Frob', as the locals call it, is an average hotel (think Holiday Inn, Radisson etc.) with good amenities. The cost is high, but that is because most things are expensive there. My room was comfortable and fine, though I found it a bit too warm. I tried to sleep with the window open but that was hard with all the snowmobile sounds outside! Bathroom was well equipped though showing some wear and tear (a wobbly toilet, a hair dryer in its last days).
Staff are great here. There is a variety store and coffee/cafeteria-like shop on the main level (Caribrew Cafe). The food there was not great. However, there are two other restaurant options. The pub was fine (if you go ther on Wednesday it's wing night and very crowded). Note that, fter 8, there is no access via the hotel lobby; instead you go out front door of both places. The upscale restaurant, the Gallery, was excellent with great service. Overall prices are high but that reflects the cost of living in the north. I had a very tasty muskox meal. That said, the Gallery had a modest but very reasonably priced wine list.
Iqaluit is small so it's only a short walk or taxi ride to anywhere. The Frob is therefore in a fine location. Taxis routinely pull up so it's not hard to get around quickly.
I have no problem recommending this place and will likely stay again. Worth more like 3 1/2 stars.
