Located close to the airport, but nothing else. We had a rental car to tour around town. Rental agency is nearby @ airport. Beautiful Chena River view on the rear of the property, watch for mosquitoes in the summer. Decent accommodations but not high-class, nothing special but better than average. Property had elevators and free internet was available off the... More

A nice spot on the river which happened to be frozen over and covered in snow - it could have been a highway for all I could tell - that's Fairbanks in December folks! My room was clean, quite, warm and comfortable. It was a good night's sleep - but if your looking for one of those brand name "heavenly... More

Stayed 2 days over Thanksgiving. Nice, rustic theme...but fairly large hotel. Close to airport. Friendly staff, great beer at the restaurant. Beautiful view of the Chena river...would love to try in the summer when can enjoy the outdoor amenities.

We stayed here as part of a Princess land cruise,. Of the 3 Princess. Properities in Alaska, I would rate it as the best overall. While not in any area, it was good in all categories. My only criticism is that you are not within walking distance of anywhere else to eat. You must either take a or their shuttle... More

Stayed here while attending a conference at the hotel. I have stated here two or three times in the past. I would say this is an average hotel. They offer great rates in the winter ($65/nt) so it is well worth the price. I would say something different in the summer when the rates go to $200/nt. The rooms are... More

Great location, friendly staff, nice public areas. Would stay there again. Like the free shuttle to the airport. Recommend try to stay when the cruise ship crowd is not there. The lobby was one of the nicest of our trip.

Fairbanks Princess was 2nd hotel on my train trip. My stay here was to take the Arctic Circle Air adventure trip. This hotel is very clean, rooms nice, but limited in dining options during mid September. Staff is the nicest and so very helpful. The outdoor terrace is closed for the season. Edgewater and Trackers Restaurant had the same menus... More

We arrived at Fairbanks airport in good time but had to wait for transport with people dragging the chain on collecting baggage and moving to the bus to the Lodge. The bus finally deposited us at the Lodge but we were too late to be served with a meal and there is no room service. Despite almost begging the staff... More

Why is that when negative reviews are submitted about this hotel and its restaurants, that they are never published? We were there in July this year and found this hotel lacking of the tradition of a regular Princess Hotel and its restaurants. Two submissions have been made since then, and they have never appeared in the review section. It leads... More

We spent 3 nights at the lodge, to begin our Alaska Cruisetour. The lodge (really just a hotel) was very quiet, clean and comfortable. Just what we expected and wanted. We did not experience any of the problems reported on here in the past. The restaurant and lounge was typical of a hotel and was fine.
