Skky Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For those traveling to, from, or through Whitehorse, this place is a great option. It's across the road from the airport, and provides an excellent place to crash for at least a night. If you're planning to stay in, and see, Whitehorse, I wouldn't recommend it, as it is not close to any of the city's attractions.

Location is good. near the air port. it takes just about 5 min by walking. Room is clean and comfortable. staff is also nice and kind. she is pretty Japanese.

Stayed here for single night in mid-summer. Conveniently located just across the Alaska Highway from the Whitehorse Airport; has complimentary shuttle service but you can also just walk about 5min from the terminal door if you don't have much luggage. Very friendly staff, which was the norm during my travels through the Yukon and Northwest Territories. Kinda reminded me of Scotland how welcoming people were. Note that Whitehorse the town is on the opposite side of the airport down an embankment so that is a bit more distant and would require taking a cab or bus from the hotel. As others have mentioned, don't be fooled by the plain-looking exterior. >>>The rooms are very nice!<<< Clean, modern bathroom fixtures, Gilcrist and Soames amenities, free coffee and some disposable slippers provided in the room. Basically, you can tell there is pride and effort put into the operation. Wifi is complimentary for standard speeds (passable for everything but streaming video) and a very reasonable $5.00 for 24hrs of premium speeds, which I did not test out. The single meal I had at the attached Volare restaurant was pretty good.

Great comfort and easy to find. Best interior of rooms and bedding to be found for the price. Continental Breakfast needed items for small children. Rain shower was the best.

It was very modern and inviting. I wish it had a better breakfast then a few pieces of bread and a banana but all in all it was a good experience. They also need luggage carts.

Proximity to airport, cost and room size and outstanding modern room design are hard to beat in Whitehorse, or anywhere. Room was immaculate, and bed very comfortable, and would definitely stay there again. However, despite high-tech heat control system, the heater came on noisily every 20 minutes, and could not be shut down, so recommend to check that on check-in. The "breakfast" choice was a cup of coffee and a mini muffin, so don't count on that.

Great location for late arriving and early leaving flights. The staff were exceptionally courteous and helpful, including suggestions of museums. The Beringia museum is exceptionally well done, walking distance, and also has courteous staff members.

Very contemporary hotel. Not yet completed. Doors had trouble closing and sticking. Floors were uneven and every door frame was out of square or not plumb. The builders took no pride in workmanship and I wonder if any building inspection was ever done. Several rooms near ours had to have assistance of staff to get the door to close. Floors were of laminate wood looking and were cold. We prefer carpet under foot in a hotel. No view from the room. Parking lot looked like a construction site with large ruts and gravel. The room was difficult to cool off and the down comforter was too hot, making for a restless night. The bed (mattress ) was comfortable. The bathroom had a wonderful shower (no tub).. The shower was the best part of the room. Parking was easier here than downtown in Whitehorse.

It is a nice hotel, The nicest hotel I've stayed at in Whitrehorse so far. It has A/C in the rooms (some other hotels don't) The resturant is very upscale food with some interesting choices, Not quite my style though, but the meal was excellent but the restraunt was warm. They did not have my reservation I made on Orbitz when I checked in but the where still able to accommidate me.

Hotel is obviously brand new. Furnishings are very modern in design, European in character. Comfortable but not traditional by any standard.
