Lonely Planet review
A landmark hotel on a prominent corner, the fittingly named Downtown has 34 rooms in the main heritage building and 25 more in a modern annex. Not all have air-con; ask to see a couple as some are small and/or frumpy.
Our independent authors have visited Downtown Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Dawson.
