NewsYellowknife News Chateau Nova hotel to open this month, amenities announced SHARE ON: Greg Hanna, contributor, Thursday, Sep. 1st, 2016 A rendering of what the Chateau Nova hotel will look like (courtesy of Nova) The Chateau Nova hotel is set to open this month in Yellowknife, with the development offering several new amenities in town. The hotel will feature a local restaurant, known as the Quarry Restaurant and Lounge, which is expected to offer a steakhouse menu. The facility has 141 rooms and suites, with the entrance road to branch off Highway 4, just next door to The Explorer. “The hotel has a modern but comfortable feel,” said Milica Mrdjenovich, the company’s vice-president of brand and marketing. “The lobby has a large feature fireplace with high ceilings and chandeliers.” To achieve a local vibe, the hotel features archival photos throughout to reflect some of Yellowknife’s history. As for amenities, Nova says the hotel will include a fitness centre, steam room, sauna, business centre, guest laundry and a banquet facility that can hold up to 400 people. Before the public gets to see it all, crews are doing a deep clean of the building and training staff before the official opening. As for prices? The hotel wouldn’t provide us with rates, but they say they’re hoping to offer a better price than its nearby competitors. This isn’t the first hotel venture in Yellowknife for Nova, after the chain opened their first facility in town in 2000. “Yellowknife is a big part of the history of Nova Hotels and we look forward to the future with the opening of the Chateau Nova Yellowknife,” said Mrdjenovich.
