It was a convenient, not luxurious stay as part of our land and sea cruise package through Princess Cruise Lines. There were beautiful views of Denali and we did spend some time on one of the walking trails, but it was pretty isolated (as you would expect in Alaska...).

The Princess Wilderness Lodge is made up of a complex of log cabin type buildings each labeled alphabetically and comprising a number of ground floor units. All buildings are located within walking distance of the main lodge which consists of two levels of lovely huge lobbies able to accommodate a large number of guests at any given time. On the...

Initially taken aback by the enormous timber complex after the luxury of the Princess Cruise. Feels a bit of a reminder of the 'wild west'. It has lots of double storey lodges but with comfortable individual rooms with ensuite. The Music of Denali dinner was a very rough and crass Across the rod are lots of eateries and shops Lots...

The lodge is enormous, much larger than we expected. The area is beautiful and worth visiting but don't expect a luxurious lodge here. We felt like we were herded around like a giant cruise ship. We had a lackluster breakfast buffet but the dinner was more enjoyable. My crab and lobster macaroni and cheese was delicious.

stayed for 2 nights at the lodge after our cruise and accommodations were comfortable and nice. The lodge and grounds were rustic but very comfortable and perfect fitting for the area.The main lodge was beautiful and the food wonderful.much to do in hiking and walking areas and also many extra excursions. really enjoyed horseback riding and the covered wagon riding.

This was our least favorite of the Princess Land/Cruise tour lodges. The sheets were not even large enough for the bottom mattress of the bed and kept "popping" off the mattress. I left a note asking the maid to replace with larger sheets- and the sheets were too small again. I had to show a digital photo at the front... More

This is the third Alaska Princesss Lodge we've stayed at )McKinley and Kenai are the others). Great place to stay. OUr check-in was a little bumpy, but eventuially they got it sorted out. Just walking around the resort is a fabulous adventure - the pasnoramas are awesome. The food at the King Salmon restaurant is excellent, if a little pricey.... More

We loved our stay in this hotel. Our grown son booked w/ us in separate room. He was one of the youngest residents by far (mostly silver-haired crowd), but he enjoyed it tremendously. Luxurious lodge w/ fires burning (needed in summer due to rain) added to wilderness ambience. We walked across the road to shops. Food was delicious in the... More

Hubby and I stayed here as part of a Princess land/cruise tour. Out of the 3 lodges in which we stayed, this was our favorite. The rooms here were slightly larger than the other two lodges, and the views were simply spectacular. The lodge is set on a ridge over the river (which one escapes me at the moment) with... More

Stayed here as part of a Princess land and sea cruise. It's a excellent lodge. The location is spectacular. The rooms are clean and well-appointed, and the staff is friendly and efficient. I'd like to come back for an extended stay - lots to do and see in the area.
