“great views from the top floors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Springhill is a great place to stay because of the location. Right on the Chena River and close to downtown stores and the visitor center. The rooms are large but have a strange configuration that does not provide much usable space. There is a full breakfast and lots of seating. This is a great part of the stay. The pool and hot tub are alos first class and suprising for Fairbanks.

The only downside is a consistently malfunctioning key control for the elevator. This stupid thing has failed on all three of our visits. They need to fix it or bypass it as walking up the stairs with luggage is awful!

Room Tip: Get a room on a top floor facing the river.

We stayed at the Springhil Suites Fairbanks both before and after our trip to the Chena Hot Springs Resort. It was very clean and comfortable. The rooms are spacious, too, and well laid out. After Chena this hotel felt like The Ritz. The staff was helpful and the shuttle service invaluable. They even paid for our taxi when the shuttle was unavailable.

Arrived at the front Desk - found the attendant distracted - no greeting - nothing like "i will be right with you." Front desk was a mess. After a bit of a wait, got checked in - pretty consistent for this brand. Room was clean, bed was comfortable - internet was painfully slow - had to link to the 4G hotspot on my phone.

I traveled to Fairbanks in winter and did not want to rent a car. Because of this, I picked Springhill Suites for 2 reasons: the location to restaurants within walking distance and the airport shuttle. Upon my arrival at the airport, I called Springhill and was told their shuttle driver wasn’t available. But they said to grab a taxi at the airport and they would pay the fare, which they did. So no harm, no foul. The restaurant located in the lobby of Springhill, LaVelle’s Bistro, is excellent. I was very happy to have such fine dining within the building. The suites were nothing fancy, but they were clean, comfortable, roomy and sufficiently heated. (I stayed in 2 different rooms at Springhill for one night each at the beginning and end of my Alaska trip.) The complimentary breakfast was actually quite good with hot items available (scrambled eggs and sausage one day, and scrambled eggs and biscuits & gravy the other day). For my return trip to the airport, they scheduled the shuttle at the time I needed, with no issues. All interactions with staff were pleasant. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

I stayed twice in this hotel when visiting Fairbanks, both winter and summer, and will stay there again. Clean rooms and friendly staff. In the center of town, across from the Chena river, Near the Alaska - Siberia World War II Memorial, and other monuments. Walking distance from restaurants. Free airport pickup.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river are good to view aurora borealis, and river/park area.

Stayed here while visiting Alaska as a stopping point back-and-forth between two other locations. The rooms were huge, clean, comfortable and quiet. Staff very helpful and friendly for the most part. Park across the street on Chena River. During our last night stay, computer was down which accessed door locks for all rooms in building. It was our last night in town, wanted to do some shopping, come back and clean up before heading out to eat. Even though it was an inconvenience for staff, they were right there letting us in and out of our rooms without complaint or making us wait. Believed they staffed someone on each floor to accommodate all visitors. They ran shuttles for pick to and from airport, train station, etc. Excellent choice and location.

Room Tip: If facing shopping district on back side of building, if skies are clear you can see Mt. Denali 120...

We stayed here for the end of the Iron Dog race. Perfect!! You could see the river out side our window. The place is old but very clean, good breakfast in the morning which is included with your room. Very nice staff and the location couldn't be better for old town Fairbanks and right on the River made it perfect. We usually travel in our motorhome up there in the summer so we have never been to Fairbanks in the winter. We will be coming back. It was so beautiful!!

Room Tip: We were on the 5th Floor. Choose a odd room number to be on the river side.
