A subsidiary of Princess Cruises, the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge will likely be one of your most memorable Alaska experiences! Its boundaries encompass an impressive six million acres — the size of the state of Massachusetts. Home to Denali, North America’s highest peak towers an unbelievable 20,310 feet in the sky. The Park hosts an array of wildlife from moose, caribou, Dall sheep and grizzly bears to gray wolves and red foxes. The Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge is the closest and most comfortable place to stay when visiting the park. The entrance to Denali National Park is located only a mile from the front door. With an expansive deck overlooking the Nenana River with views into the park, Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge is the ideal spot to relax, visit with friends, and savor the exquisite landscape.

The Lodge is very pretty and laid out well. It is in sections around the main building and shops and food. Our room was very small and cramped and not very clean. There was no closet just a pole on the wall 3 feet off the floor, a small dresser and a bench. Just enough room to walk around the bed. The bathroom was large and very roomy. I think this was a handicapped bathroom but makes no sense because you could NOT get a wheelchair into this room. There was a laundry room next to our room with 2 washers and 2 dryers and a small table. But they didn't work and no one posted a sign. So I had a load of wet clothes and no dryer. The customer service folks did not care at all and said there was no one to fix anything so we could walk around and look for a dryer that worked. This place is huge so it was a terrible inconvienience to carry wet clothes all around to find a working empty dryer. We had to leave at 6am so we needed dry clothes. Then we found out the people in the next room had told them the machines did not work and they never put out a sign to keep people from using them and they got no help either. The pizziria there was very good. The breakfast buffet was $$$ but really very good and plentiful. Across the street there are many shops, art gallery and food too. They have shuttle buses to take you to all the area's of the lodge so you needn't hump all those suitcases. The area was very pretty and wonderful views.

On this trip (May 2018) we flew into Anchorage for our 10 day road trip Anchorage - Seward - Girdwood / Whittier - Talkeetna - Denali - Anchorage. For the Denali leg, we stayed at the Princess Lodge for 3 nights. It was a very cosy stay, in the logged rooms in the extension blocks. The main reception area is awesome and may times we would just hand out their playing cards and sipping coffee. We made 2 rounds to the Denali National Park, once in the bus tour and once drove on our own, sighted a few snowshoe hare, herd of carribou, moose etc but not so lucky with the bear. We had a clear view of the Mt. McKinley and the snow clad landscape was just awesome. Great fun soaking in the atmosphere and kind of enjoying the midnight sun near the Artic Circle.

Stayed 2 nights as pat of the land and cruise package from Princess cruises. The resort was very nice. Several restaurants on property ranging from casual pizza place to pricey sit down place that takes reservations. Numerous shops, all owned by the cruise line, also on property. The best part was the walking paths that led down to the entrance of Denali National Park. Great views on the path. Also, there is a shopping center across the street from the lodge that has a coffee shop voted the Best Coffee in Alaska by the food network!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge with friends while on a cruise tour in Alaska. We stayed there for 2 nights. The lodge was really nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel is right on the river. There were fantastic views of the river and surrounding mountains. There are some great shops on the premises and very good restaurants as well.

This restaurant had an amazing chicken and burger sandwich, milkshakes and cheese curds we have eaten by far. This place is only open in the spring/summer time, but if you have the opportunity to get to Denali National Park area, please stop by (Denali princess lodge) and tryout their menu.
