This modest three-star Canadian hotel rolled out red carpet for Will & Kate

WHITEHORSE, YUKON — Royalty, they really are just like us! While on their official eight-day visit to Canada, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge raised a few eyebrows and won the hearts of many for staying at a modest three-star hotel in Whitehorse, the capital city of the Yukon Territory.

Known for being down to earth, William and Kate checked into the Coast High Country Inn, which is easily identifiable from the street with its 40-foot-tall Mountie statue and white and green exterior. The night spent at the hotel was dubbed the couple’s ‘date night’, reports Lonely Planet, as it was the only night they spent away from their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who stayed behind at Government House in Victoria, BC with their nanny.

According to Coast High Country Inn’s website, the hotel has a “range of well-appointed, recently renovated rooms for you to choose from, including Jacuzzi, kitchenette and pet-friendly options.” All rooms feature complimentary Wi-Fi and coffee, plus guests have access to the fitness and business centres.




The royal couple were reportedly given the hotel’s top suite, a 380-square-foot premium king room equipped with a fireplace, LCD TV, microwave, mini fridge, iPod dock and, of course, a Jacuzzi. The room costs approximately $200 per night. It was reported that William and Kate were “delighted” with their accommodations.

The hotel’s ‘celebrity’ status reached a new high with the arrival of the Will and Kate. Previously, Coast High Country Inn claims to have hosted major stars like Robin Williams and Woody Harrelson.

While in Whitehorse, the royal couple visited the MacBride Museum to learn about Yukon’s history, and also enjoyed a community festival on Main Street.
