Welcome to the newly opened Days Inn and Suites, a 100-percent non-smoking hotel, perfectly located in downtown Yellowknife, the growing diamond capital of Canada. Stay at this uniquely northern hotel and witness the beauty of the Northern Lights, enjoy Yellowknifes annual Caribou Carnival Festival, try some world class fishing in some of Canadas freshest waters, or take a leisurely hike on breathtaking scenic trails. Yellowknife has it all. An ideal choice whether on an extended business trip or vacationing in Canadas North. Enjoy outstanding hotel service, a choice of rooms and large suites, generous meeting space, complimentary airport shuttle, high speed internet, fitness centre, onsite dining and more. An excellent choice for either an overnight or an extended stay in Yellowknife.
Our flight to Edmonton was canceled, and the Days Inn had space (at the suites portion of their hotel, down the street from the main hotel). They accomodated us quickly and easily, the room was large and clean.
The hotel restaurant (Trek) was closed due to flooding, and will not return. We had to stay down the road (and across the street), and the airport shuttle also left from the main hotel, which meant walking with all of our luggage in -18°C.
1. Airport shuttle was good to have. 2. Cleaning staff were flexible and did a good job, especially considering the dated furniture/rooms. 3. Since there is no breakfast included, we appreciated the fridge and microwave.
1. Staff were mostly inexperienced/poor, though a few were quite good. 2. Walls/ceilings were thin: it is a noisy environment. 3. Japanese tourists abound, but many have little consideration for others in terms of being quiet in the hallways or when they come in and out at all hours of the night. I think this establishment needs to actually TELL them to be more considerate of other guests. 4. Restaurant offered little of interest: we stayed for 13 nights but there was not anything interesting to draw us in there. 5. Lounge? Did not find one that was open whenever we looked.
