Of our 2 weeks on the road, this was the nicest place we stayed. There was a little glitch checking in, and we were unable to get two beds, and there was a wait til they found a room . But we were given a free dinner, which more than compensated us for our trouble. The room was luxurious and... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. My room was on the 2nd floor with great views of the mountains. I wasn't sure what to expect since this would be my first experience with Princess (as a company). I did not cruise with them. I booked this on my own as part of a trip into Wrangell St Elias NP and... More

We wanted to experience the Copper River Area and the Princess Wilderness Lodge had a great deal - buy one night and the 2nd is half off. Could not resist and drove from Wasilla to Copper Center about 4 hours. Upon entering you are struck by the beauty of the lobby. The lobby windows are big and looks out to... More

We moved to this lodging from a B&B (see separate review of The Copper Moose) closer to Chitina, after our first night in the Wrangell St Elias area. The B&B location was excellent for a day or overnight trip to Kennecott/McCarthy, but this Lodge was more centrally located for the Wrangell St Elias Visitor Center and to the Slana entrance... More

I'm not a cruise person so I had a preconceived notion about the Princess operation and how I would feel about staying at a Princess hotel. I was wrong. This lodge is stunning, yet the cost is quite reasonable. The great room at the lodge has massive windows looking out at the Wrangall Mountains. The only possible negative is that... More

We stayed for 1 night. I am not one to complain but I have mixed reviews on this place. The hotel is beautiful inside. The rooms are comfortable. Pros- it was the only hotel between Fairbanks and Anchorage. The views from the lobby are beautiful. Cons- The printed confirmation we had stated mountain or forest view. Every other place we...

We stayed for 1 day only but it was worth it. It is from the Princess company so I knew it would be good. The beds were big and the bathroom was clean. Wifi only accessible in the lobby but is strong. Beautiful wooden building with a high lobby roof makes it feel open and like it's in the wilderness.... More

We used this hotel as our hub to explore McCarthy and Kennicott. The rooms were very clean. It was very enjoyable visiting with other travelers in the lobby that had a beautiful view of the Wrangell-St. Elias Mountains. The outdoor area provided a nice place to walk after being in a car all day and included some history info as... More

We were on a bus from Denali to Copper River and the only way to get there is 117 miles of dirt road. We didn't mind, even though we didn't see much wildlife we were amazed at the vastness of Alaska. The driver was an old Alaska guy and he told stories all the way there. The lodge was great.... More

We traveled by bus from Whittier which was a loooong way, about 5 hours, with the only stop was along the highway in the rain, to view a nearby glacier. the Hotel is very nice and well laid out, the views are terrific, food was so-so, we were VERY dissapointed with a excursion that was cancelled for unknown reasons, we...
