Celebrating 5 Years of Operation

5 Years

The SKKY Hotel opened five years ago, on February 9th, 2009. It’s been a whirlwind of a journey from getting the hotel renovated, finding qualified staff and management, and getting the word out. The SKKY Hotel has persevered to become the top ranked full-service hotel on TripAdvisor over the years.

The changes from the Airline Inn (which had been opened for 20+ years beforehand) into the current SKKY Hotel are simply remarkable. See for yourself:

5 Years - Before:After

The reviews that people have posted since day one have only raved about the services available at the hotel. It is always rewarding to receive the notification that someone has entered a review on TripAdvisor reading ones like:

My husband and I were in Whitehorse for our first time in November and stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. We loved the fact that it was across from the airport and there was a shuttle bus that picked us up. The rooms are modern and the beds are extremely comfortable. The hotel is very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant which is attached to the hotel had great food and very reasonable prices. We would recommend this hotel and restaurant to anyone travelling to Whitehorse.

Brand new, nicely appointed rooms, friendly staff, white linens. Walking distance from the airport – ie not in the downtown if that’s important to you . A nice change from the typically tired or bland (or sometimes shoddy) hotels of Whitehorse and I’ve stayed in most over the years. Time will tell how well some of the furnishings wear at the Skky but it’s very nice right now – especially for Whitehorse.

The last quote was one of the very first reviews for the hotel. Needless to say, time has treated the SKKY Hotel very well as more and more people discover the finer qualities we have to offer.

If you are reading this and haven’t stayed with us before, we invite you to experience one of the best hotel stays you can have North of 60 – and you don’t have to take our word for it. Read through the reviews and see for yourself: TripAdvisor or Booking.com.
