I found the front desk staff friendly and helpful. The room was a standard hotel room with the basic amenities. The bed was quite comfortable. I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again the next time I visit Yellowknife.

My daughter and I just spent four nights at this hotel. The Explorer was a great hotel for us. The staff was friendly, the food in the restaurants is absolutely delicious ( be sure and get the Northern Salad), the room was large, the beds very comfy....overall we were very satisfied!! We had room service breakfast three of the mornings---yummy !!
We were there when the outside temperature was -38; however, it was very comfortably warm in our room !! We have only good things to say about The Explorer!!

Very good location, short walk to downtown area and the visitors centre. Clean rooms friendly staff. This hotel has a bar/restaurant with good food. Fairly large hotels in the area, suggest booking early for any properties in the area regardless of season.

Hotel is pleasant, comfy bed! Great view from 8th floor. Breakfast buffet is quite pricey, unless you like a big breakfast. The lounge is cosy, good service and good selection of food. The only downside was the disrupted sleep from the noise of the fridge. Also room was quite cool due to constant HVAC, could not turn it off - felt like there was a constant breeze!

Helpful and available staff. Rooms are nice size and well furnished with useful surfaces and good array of electrical outlets for charging multiple devices. Location is up on a small hill, so views are nice. Close to city center so walking there from the hotel is 5-10 minutes away.
It's nice to have Traders Grill restaurant downstairs if you don't want to go out for breakfast or dinner.
