“Excellent hotel in Fairbanks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

We spent 10 days in Fairbanks staying at the Spring Hill Marriott, it should have a 5 star rating. The hotel is incredible with a very inviting and modern lobby. The rooms are very spacious and clean with excellent views of the riverfront park. The free breakfast is more like a breakfast buffet with everything you could ever want for breakfast. The swimming pool and hot tub are nice,clean and very well maintained. The gym is amazing although we did not use it. The hotel is centrally located to everything in Fairbanks and walking distance to museums and several wonderful restaurants. At last but not least we can not say enough about the staff, they were friendly and courteous answering every question we had and always greeting us at the door with a smile. When we come back to Fairbanks it will be where we stay and we highly recommend the Springhill Suites Marriott to everyone.

Room Tip: The 6th floor is very quiet and has great views

i've stayed at both the westmark and springhill - the springhill clearly beats the westmark. the lobby is a little old and can use an upgrade, but the rooms are well kept, very clean, and quiet. free parking, standard springhill amenities, will stay here again if i'm back in fairbanks.

The Chena River is across the street with a bike/walking trail that passes the Cultural Center, a great stop for tourists, with very friendly folks working there. The hotel is nice and clean; free breakfast included with lots of choices: fresh fruit, eggs, cereal, pastries, bagels, etc. There are several restaurants in the area (Thai, Mexican, Greek, Italian, BBQ and several deli's as well). The only 2 things that were a little disappointing were that the TV in the room does not have a guide to see what's playing when, and there's no TV listing in the daily newspaper (which is free, at the front desk). Hopefully, you'll only go to your room to sleep! And if you need something from a drugstore, there aren't any close by within a few blocks.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor for the best views, with the gentle Chena River flowing right acr...

Finally a hotel where you are not afraid to sit on the bed. The bedspread is white and clean. The rooms are spacious; you have a separate sitting area with a kitchenette, so you have somewhere to heat up leftovers, refrigerate water and make coffee. The showers have good pressure and ample hot water, while the sink and mirror are outside the shower area, which is convenient. It has a restaurant associated with it (Lavelle's) that is said to be one of the best, although pricey. I have not yet eaten there. It is in a good location, near the water, near the ice museum and the courthouse. The only downside is the breakfast area uses styroform pllates and bowls. It is very disconcerting to pour hot oatmeal in one of the bowls and you can feel the bottom getting thinner and know how dangerous that is for your body. Very disappointing and I hope it changes. The eggs at times were griddy too, but there are other options that taste good. The workout area is small but doable if you are alone and they do have an indoor pool. They do have a few cookies in the afternoon but not enough so hurry down.

Room Tip: I was on the 4th floor and next to the elevator. It was still very quiet in spite of the location n...

We liked this room and the foyer for the glacier-like colors and decor. As others noted, the beds were very comfortable, the room was clean and spacious, and --a plus--the attached bistro restaurant, LeVelle's or some similar name, had really great food. A bit spendy but great.

We also ate at Frontier Pizza at the Co-op Diner across the street, and their food was great and a much better price. Homey plain atmosphere but super friendly husband and wife owners.

Myself and my family stayed here for 3 nights in Feb 2014. The hotel is in an excellent location and was within walking distance of many services in Fairbanks, including the Morris Thompson Cultural Centre and the excellent Soapy Smith's Pioneer restaurant. The staff were all very friendly and happy to help. Rooms were large and clean with coffee making facilities, free WiFi, comfortable beds and a tasty free breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay there and would definitely stay there again.

We stayed 5 nights in March. The rooms were clean, the bed comfy, the staff was friendly and the location was great. My only complaints are that internet was very slow and actually cut out for about 2 days, the rooms are not very soundproof, and we were misinformed about the breakfast ending time. None of these were to a high degree of annoyance, just minor. All in all I would stay again and recommend it to anyone going to Fairbanks. It allows for easy, quick walking to several restaurants and cafes. enjoy! :)
