Came here for a 3-day visit prior to an Alaskan cruise leaving out of Seward. I wanted to see Denali, and I got my wish. The rooms were nice. Nothing fancy. It's a lodge. The restaurants were very good. It would have been nice if they'd stayed open later. It was daylight until after 11 pm, and time got away... More

With or without the view of Denali, the Princess McKinley is a beautiful venue. The main lodge has fireplaces, good seating and a large outdoor deck for enjoying the sun, soft breezes or whatever the weather is dishing up! There is an outdoor fire pit area which was fun at night. The landscaping of the grounds is lovely with bright... More

Not that you would know that you were in the wilderness at this Lodge. Various buildings providing good accommodation in a lovely setting. From the main building you can get a great view of Mt Denali (previously known as My McKinley) - provided the cloud is not on the mountain. Would be very easy to have an extended stay here.

Room was big and clean with a comfortable bed. They had a nature show in the lodge with a white snow owl. There was another show on the northern lights which can't usually be seen in the summer. A show with an experienced mountain climber was very good and provided a glimpse into the difficulty of climbing Denali. They must... More

We stayed here the first night of our Princess Land package and enjoyed it greatly. The lodge room was spacious and clean and only a short walk to the main lodge building. The location of the Lodge and the outlook from the back lounge/bar and deck is spectacular. Staff are friendly and attentive. We enjoyed a few drinks at the... More

The location, views from the lodge main deck and some of the dinning areas are excellent when the mountain is full view. this occurs around 10% of the time. As we were with a tour group from Princess we had some great excursions from this location and one not so much as the tour bus we needed was not available... More

We stayed here as part of our land package. We only had one night but felt that we would like to come back to spend more time here. The lodge is well spread out and we were in one of the last blocks. There is a bus which goes around if you don't fancy the walk, it not far and... More

I stayed 2 nights at this property as part of a Princess Cruise/Tour. What a great place made up of a main lodge and many accommodation buildings and restaurants etc. The room was clean and tidy and a great size. With very comfortable beds. We were in building 5 and we could not get the wifi in our room so... More

We visited the lodge (like almost all do) as a part of a Princess Cruise - Land tour package. The lodge itself is well-maintained and our room was about .2 mile from the main facility, front-desk, lobby, etc. The room was somewhat spartan, but it was comfortable and fit the bill of what one would expect from a wilderness hotel....

Princess Cruise lines has developed three lodges in Alaska, to provide land experiences before or after Alaskan Cruises. This lodge is one of the newest of the three lodges. It is located inside a State Park, which is a great natural environment but very heavy development inside a park. All the lodge facilities were good. We hiked on all the... More
