Westmark Inn at Beaver Creek -- Traditionally the roadhouse, this property was an integral part of the social fabric of the Northwest providing lodging, meals and news of the era.

The hotel is open for summer travelers from May 19 through September 13, 2005.
Westmark Klondike Inn -- This Whitehorse landmark, located in the historic capital of the Yukon Territory, is the ideal base for excursions to the many tourist attractions nearby - the Yukon Gardens, the McBride Museum, the SS Klondike National Historic Site and more. The Inn is open to summer travelers from May 20 to September 7, 2005.
Westmark Inn Skagway -- The mere mention of Skagway brings to mind those rough and ready days of Jack London and miners scrambling over the Chilkoot Trail in search of golden dreams and elusive riches. The Westmark Inn, open May 21 to September 10, 2005, reflects the charm and personality of those days with Victorian decor, rustic setting and warm Alaskan hospitality.
