Pros: We liked the location, the free shuttle service, of course the courteous staff, and the large rooms. The restaurant and bar had a nice atmosphere and great food. We really enjoyed our stay.
Cons: The prices in the restaurant were a little expensive on the breakfast menu. You could not open the windows in the rooms.

Pros: Nice hotel well located. Everyone loves the polar bear in the lobby. The restaurant had some nice local specialties.
Cons: Rooms are a bit too generic. Could be a little more design effort to reflect the far north.
