I stayed for 4 nights at the Frobisher. This was my first trip to Nunavut. As in past reviews, one must expect challenges with technology in the North as the internet connection was horrible and mobile phones from the South do not work- buy a phone card from the front desk or North Mart to save $ on calls. The hotel was very clean and modern, a good location with several dining options (bar- good muskox burgers, Snack spot, Dining Room, Room Service). There is a convenience store in the Hotel, a swimming pool (wasn't open due to renos), and a great movie theatre with 2 screens. Front desk staff was helpful and friendly, though seemed frequently stressed because of check-in issues. Check-in is challenged as most flights seem to arrive prior to 1 pm and all at once, and the hotel usually won't check you in until after 3 pm, so you are abandoned for a few hours- they will store your luggage and you can walk the Town or ask to be let into the computers though as indicated before the internet is slower than dialup and frequently unavailable. The chamber staff are very friendly and sincere when visiting with you. In all a great full service hotel in the small City of Iqaluit. You are approximately 3 blocks from the Bay, 4 blocks from downtown. Check out the visitor centre by the North Mart, the gift shop in the First Nations Bank building downtown, and spend a few hours at Sylvia Grinnell Park (but be prepared for rigorous hiking conditions!). If in Iqaluit I would recommend this hotel above others.
