Great room, updated bed linens, mattresses, pillows. Comfortable sitting room/kitchenette. We had a quiet room that did NOT face the parking lot. Lovely staff, restaurant was fine.

Stayed one night after a 1 wk cruise. Spacious, clean room with kitchenette. Great location. Beautiful flowers. Would have loved to spend several more days there, but clearly on my list of places to stay. No opportunity to use dining services. Staff very helpful. Comfortable. Working amenities. A definite "A".

Nice spot, with plenty of room. Clean, well appointed. Big, big problem, however, with our 3rd floor room overlooking the parking lot. Nonstop tour buses and support vehicles loaded and unloaded luggage and tour groups from early in the morning until close to 11 pm. This made opening the windows or using the balcony not feasible. As fresh air is... More

I was in Fairbanks Alaska for a whole month working on a science research project. Every person at the Sophie was a delight. The front desk staff were always friendly and as accomidating as they could be. There were always a few people at the front desk so I rarely had to wait at all. All you have to do... More

I found this hotel based on reviews from this site. This is a comfortable and roomy hotel. The suites are nice but not considered luxurious. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is comfortable. I ordered food from the restaraunt at the bar and it arrived in a timely manner and was pretty good. Joe, the bartender, made excellent recommendations... More

Husband returned from a LONG tour in the middle east and we stayed for 2 nights in their Jacuzzi Suite. GREAT color scheme in the room, awesome service, layout of the room allowed for me to work in/near the kitchen area so to keep work out of the sleeping area, enjoyed having a drink in the upstairs lounge and calling...

We were here in early June on a roadtrip through Alaska. This was our first visit to Fairbanks, and this hotel was a luxury I didn't expect to find. The hotel was much, much larger than I expected. With a name like "Sophie's Station" I was expecting a much smaller hotel with "quaint" dripping all over it. Instead, this felt... More

Our room at Sophie's Station was absolutely clean and neat. Everything about the facility was clean and neat. Very comfortable suite with lots of space. This level of attention to detail is very welcome and very much to be enjoyed.

Sophie Station was a nice European style hotel with lots of beautiful flowers outside and friendly atmosphere. I stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed my room which included a kitchen, living room, bedroom with 2 queen beds, and shower with a sink outside and huge counter for stashing beauty supplies. I was really impressed with the spacious room and... More
