4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We stayed here in March during the Ice Sculpture Championships. Comfortable, spacious rooms with kitchen and sitting area. Free hot breakfast, exercise room and pool and spa. The staff shuttled us to the Ice Park, the train station, the airport, and the museum of the North. They even shuttled us to the Safeway. We walked to the visitor center, and to many good restaurants. A downside: only two small drawers. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Good starting point for tours to see the aurora or dog sledding. Overlooks the Chena River, which was frozen and covered with snow. Beautiful.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the river.

Kind of straight from the outside, the hall is not impressive. But don't be fooled. Rooms are modern, bright and perfectly equiped . Beds are SO confortable. Location near the river is great .
The hotel's restaurant, Lavelle's bistro, is outstanding. You'll feel like downtown in any major city in America. The place is bustling and food is up to the level. An evening there is memorable, even if it is just for a drink.

Center of town and near everything, comfortable, serviceable hotel for a northern lights adventure. Breakfast included, but it's a mob scene. Rent a car; go out to Cleary Summit around midnite. Sleep late, go to Sourdough Cafe across town. Come to Fairbanks during the ice sculpture competition. Ignore the staffs' bruskness; you are there for aurora and its soul healing magnificence.

We stayed two different nights at this hotel (before and after chasing the aurora at Chena Hot Springs) - both stays were great. On one night, we overlooked the river; the second stay, we overlooked the town. Rooms were great, refrigerator/coffee maker a plus, the beds were super. Breakfast was great.

The biggest plus? The staff! From the time we were picked up at the airport to the time we left, everyone was simply terrific. Thanks to Sadie, Elizabeth and Liz for giving us a warm welcome to Fairbanks and Alaska, for patiently answering our questions, helping us out and going out of their way to make our stay special!

Room Tip: Upper floors and river view are great, although we also liked the city view room.

I stayed a few nights at this hotel. On the plus side: Beds were very comfy and so were pillows. Spacious enough though the desk area is tucked into a corner with no natural light. It is located across from the Yukon Quest finish line, so easy to trek mushers and go to see them arrive. Coffee, tea and water 24/7 in lobby. I liked the location. Gary, the handyman, could resolve anything and was very helpful. Lavelle's Bistro downstairs means you don't have to put on outerwear to eat, however, is not open for breakfast or lunch. On the negative side: Took about 45 minutes to get picked up from the train station. My first room was above the restaurant service door so I was getting a very loud BAM constantly. Had no internet first night either. Moved the next night to non-river view. Never got the river view again as they said they were always full yet I would be in the lobby when people walked in off the street and not only got a room, but a better rate, too. Rarely had more than 1 person on the desk (saw 2 about 4 AM one night) so whoever was working was always too busy to take care of everyone in an efficient manner. Never made sense they stopped serving breakfast at 9:30 AM when most are there to see the Aurora Borealis which meant I was usually getting back around 4 AM and getting to sleep even later.

Room Tip: AVOID room 219. It is above the restaurant service door which is constantly being slammed and is ve...

Spacious room, reasonable price and easy access to all parts of the town! Free wifi is an added bonus, and not to mention that the bed was really comfortable and all amenities are equipped as well. Breakfast was simple yet nice ; the lift seems to be a little slow but that is not really a big problem. This is a nice place to stay over for a night or two in Fairbanks if you are planning to explore downtown.
