Over the years, the Narwhal Hotel in Resolute Bay, Canada, has hosted adventurers, tourists,
science teams, pilots, and oil, gas, and mineral prospectors from all
over the world, a fact that is immortalized on a door in the dining
area. The North Pole Environmental Observatory crewof which WHOI was a part in 2007has been working
out of the Narwhal since 2002, due to its proximity to the airport and
warehouse, and the hotel’s no-nonsense approach to
hosting its guests.
