We stayed here as part of our Princess Cruisetour, and while the rooms are ordinary, the view of Denali is just spectacular. We were fortunate enough to travel in late July 2013, when we were told they had an unusually lucky span of beautiful, sunny weather. We were fortunate that our rooms in Building 23 were very close to a... More

This was a nice place but the room was like a cruise ship room but it was bigger, not a lot of personality. There were a zillion people staying here... again like a cruise ship. There was one restaurant open and not a lot to do but explore the grounds a little. The resort is not close to a city... More

My wife and I stayed at this lodge while we were traveling through Alaska. The lodge and cabins were rustic and something you would expect to see in Alaska. We were lucky that it wasn't too cloudy during our stay so we got a pretty good view of Mt. McKinley. If you stay at the lodge and it is cloudy... More

You booked and paid a tour through your cruise-ship package months before you arrived and nobody showed up to collect you for the tour. When you ask what happened you get the answer that it was your (= guest) fault! Why are you coming so early in the season when none is trained and prepared to have guests. They have... More

Stayed up on the hill in a strip-cabin room. It had a beautiful lodge with roaring fireplaces. It has one of the closest vantage points to Mt. McKinley but we did not get to see it, just like 70% of the others. Pricey, nice but not the deluxe accommodations as one might think they would be getting when booking a... More

The lodge is located about 40 miles from Mt McKinley and has a wonderful view of the mountain assuming the clouds clear out of the way. We saw about 2/3 of the mountain before the clouds came back. The lodge is beautiful, the rooms are very large, the food is great and the walking trails are many.

The lodge is located on a hilltop with a magnificent view of the Mountain…when it is out. This is somewhat infrequent in Summer. The food at the restaurant 20320 is good, with very good service by seasonal help. The rooms are bland. They want you out on excursions or at least in the lodge, not in the room. Princess offers...

Stayed for 1 night at part of a Princess land tour and unless you were going to spend time hiking or just relaxing this was about long enough as probably the whole purpose of the visit is to see Mt McKinley. As it rained most of our stay this was not possible from ground level. Having stayed in accommodation at... More

McKinley Princess Lodge is very spread out with older but nice rooms. Lodge style furnishings are quite nice. There are few dining options. Mountain View is very nice but pricey. There is only one place to get something quickly and it has a very limited selection, with long lines at peak times. A limited shuttle to Talkeetna is available but... More

Of the three Princess venues, Copper Center & Denali, this was my favorite. Our room was great. Large and with additional seating. The main lodge was very welcoming and there were activities for visitors to do. Weather didn't cooperate, but I guess I can't hold Princess responsible for that. I liked the variety in the restaurant offerings. We found the... More
