“Great place to stay during wintertime escape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for our anniversary weekend getaway. I was amazed that such a nice hotel could be so inexpensive during the off-season ($89/night in December 2011). Our room was quite large, the California king-sized bed exceptionally comfortable. The complimentary continental breakfast was among the best we've encountered in our travels: fresh scrambled eggs, hot sausage patties, a huge selection of breads and pastries, and make-it-yourself Belgian waffles. The attached independent restaurant, Lavelle's Bistro, caught us by surprise with their delectable gourmet food. We encountered only two detractions during our visit: the presence of homeless individuals who approached hotel guests during the open breakfast, and the water in both the pool and jacuzzi were in dire need of service. Regardless, we're looking forward to staying here again during our next journey to Fairbanks.

The room is very large and comfortable. I did not rent a car and the downtown location of the hotel allowed me to walk around. The bus station is a few minutes away of one so desires to take the bus.
The ladies in the front desk were most helpful, giving me advice anything from weather to activities to partake.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river on the upper floors. You'll have a good view.

I have stayed here a number of times on business travel to Fairbanks and it is far and away the best. Always clean, always professional and friendly and always a fair price. I like the location downtown and I have never been disappointed in my room.

We had to fly into Fairbanks -2 days before our Princess land trip started. Princess Lodge (in the middle of nowhere) was booked up and would not help us find a Hotel in a Town our travel agent and ourselves and really anyone we knew -had ever been to. Delta Air was working with our agent to rebook the tickets (hurricane Irene Evacuation) and was so overwhelmingly helpful -recommended this web site/ motel.com -we didnt know any of the hotels -but we wanted to be in the center of town -Marriott -Spring Hill suites was on the river walk next to the Chena River -the Hotel picked us up at the tiny airport and after flying all day this was a blessing -our room included coffee maker and microwave and a full buffet breakfast in the morning -it was within walking distance of everything -after two days they took us to the Princess Lodge and our prepaid trip started -but honestly we could have gone back to the Spring Hill suites and booked our own trips -I do not recommend the Princess Lodge it is the middle of nowhere and you almost are forced to use their restaurant ( and NO coffee in the rooms )and if you can find the computer you wll not be ale to get on!. Springhill has a business center computer and we could sent emails that we arrived ok- they even monitor the other guest time so everyone gets a fair time -It was a wonderful experience with Springhill -i would recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: we liked the river view

This hotel has it all, with the exception of pleny of parking. Downtown location with a small parking lot. Has plug ins for the winter months, really needed. If you go out late, you will end up parking on the street. This was a business trip and the room was large and spacious. Great restaraunt and the free breakfast was great. Hot food and cold. I will make this my Fairbanks home away from home!!!

Room Tip: Any room you get has a view.

After 2 good nights in the Marriot Springhill Suites in Anchorage, had yet another good expereince in the Springhill Suites of Fairbanks. Very friendly desk staff greeted us with complimentary snacks when we checked in! Another consistently good room from this chain - clean, quiet, well appointed with plenty of room for airing out layers of winter clothing, for example. Internet service, breakfast and fitness room all included and value-added. Extremely affordable at $75, was well under the per deim cap for government travelers - saving the taxpayer and I a few bucks as well! I will book this property the next time I return to Fairbanks!

Room Tip: Hotel is on a main road, so I'd recommend staying a few floors up.
