“My 1st choice in Fairbanks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

The Springhill Suites is my favorite place to stay when traveling to Fairbanks for work. The consistent quality and luxurious touches always make my stay comfortable. The free high speed Internet and comfortable working area are a plus.

This is a good place to stay and probably your best option in Fairbanks. The room is good sized, with a comfortable bed and flat screen tv. The free breakfast is typical for Marriott and the on site restaurant is excellent. Parking can be iffy when they are busy, a minor irritation if your ever there during peak times.

Right downtown,across the street from Griffin Park.
Convenient for touring Fairbanks; walking distance to Morris Thompson Cultural Center.
Transportation to & from airport. Could use more parking places.
Breakfast good, space quite small for the number of people.
Would stay there again if ever return to Fairbanks.

Fairbanks doesn't have a great deal to do, but what's available is all incredibly close to this hotel. Smack dab in the middle of downtown, the Springhill Suites has an idyllic view of the Chena River in the front of the hotel and a convenient row of restaurants and cafes in the back. It's about 15 minutes from the Fairbanks Airport and the various charter air services, and the hotel staff are very helpful and accommodating in arranging transportation to the airport with the hotel shuttle service. There is free, good-quality WiFi throughout the hotel, and 24-hour coffee service in the lobby (a must for an addict like me). The rooms are spacious and clean, and the restaurant downstairs is tasty (if a bit pricey)

Room Tip: Get one in the front of the hotel for a view of the river

Service was outstanding here. Every single staff member we dealt with during our stay was very friendly and extended a helping hand. Complimentary shuttle not only available to airport, but also other town attractions as well, so taking taxis is unnecessary; you simply call the hotel to pick you back up when you're done. Fresh cookies available at reception desk. Free breakfast has a variety of options. Free in-room high speed internet was greatly appreciated. Room was clean, beds were very comfortable. View of Chena River from our window was pretty. Might not be 5-star in a major city, but for Fairbanks it certainly was.

Only concern -- which has nothing to do with the hotel itself but needs to be noted -- is Fairbanks' homeless population. You'd think a city that gets temperatures 50 below in winter wouldn't have homeless people, but it does. The streets near the hotel are not the safest for walking alone since there are a few homeless people in the area. The hotel has done a good job making the property secure (key cards required for entry at night and to use the elevators), but they can't control what happens outside their doors.

This Springhill Suites is a standard Marriott property and delivers what it promises. Standard hot breakfast, free parking, 6 floors of rooms and well located for walking about town. There is a good free shuttle to/from the airport. One pitfall is the outdated PC in the lobby which is characteristic of many hotel chains.

The staff, however, is very helpful, though at times understaffed. I had room 626 with 2 double beds, frig, microwave, comfy beds and sofa. There were usually one of the two elevators running and you need a card key to get on it from the ground floor. The bathroom has basic amenities. I do plan to stay here again.

Room Tip: High floor, end room.

A group of 8 of us checked in a couple of days ahead of our cruise package. We got in late in the day, but had no problem getting the shuttle from the airport. When we inquired about getting the shuttle back to the airport to get a rental car however, we found that you need to make an advance reservation and it only leaves on the hour, so keep that in mind.

The hotel was clean, the service and friendliness of the staff was great, and the room was up to date. It is located in the center of the city, right next to the river although Fairbanks is not that large anyway. The breakfast was good, with a selection of scrambled eggs, sausage and waffles along with many other items. Be aware, it can get very crowded there depending on whether cruise passengers are there.
