Yukon History in the Heart of Downtown Whitehorse

The ’98 Hotel – Whitehorse, Yukon

The ’98 Hotel is an historic hotel in the heart of beautiful downtown Whitehorse, Yukon.

The Hotel was completely refurbished in 2019. The result is brilliant—a brand new look that recollects the look and feel of an old-time hotel. Visiting The ’98 Hotel feels like stepping back into the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898 (which is what the Hotel’s name refers to).


Unique beautifully restored gold rush rooms. Each one special in its own way. A mix of antique furnishings, original Yukon art and local photography.

The ’98 Hotel has five guest rooms: the Angler, the Hunter, the Dancer, the Prospector and the Barmaid. Guests can use the kitchenette and three shared washrooms for guest use.


The ’98 Hotel is pet friendly and wheelchair accessible. All rooms are on the ground floor. There are no stairs or elevators to deal with. There is free parking in front of the building and free wifi available to all guests.

The ’98 Hotel is in downtown Whitehorse, Yukon, within walking distance to restaurants, clubs, shopping, museums and galleries, theatres, food stores and more. The Hotel is a block away from the Yukon River, which has a great walking trail stretching many kilometres.

The Hotel Lounge offers live entertainment on Thursday and Sunday nights. Don’t miss Fiddle Night with Joe Loutchan and Friends playing every Thursday from September to mid-June for the last 40 years. A ’98 Tradition!! Open Mic Night on Sundays. A Super popular event!
