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.

Dirty rooms. Bed sheets were dirty on checkin. Phoned front desk to have sheets replaced. Also was no soap in room. The room was sweltering hot and the room temperature controls were broken. The doorknobs to the bathroom were filthy and looked like they had never been cleaned. BEWARE do not complain about this hotel when you are a guest, do this AFTER you leave. My suitcase was vandalized after I complained about the conditions.

The Denali Lodge has breathtaking scenery. Once settled in it's like being in a small village. Words can't adequately describe the view of the mountains and river. The main restaurant at the lodge was very good. The second night we walked (short distance) to the restaurant at the Denali Chateaus. It was excellent also.

We’ll we travelled with Princess cruises land and sea tour and we stayed here as part of our tour. It was a great resort and very peaceful. Lovely bar and restaurant area. They had a lot of lodges spread over the property and we had a view of the mountains.

Have to say that this might have been better appreciated before the marvelous cruise up the Inside Passage instead of afterwards. It was almost a letdown except for the phenomenal train ride from Whittier to Denali that was 9 hours long. Also the natural history / wildlife tour the following morning was exceptional. But I digress away from the Lodge itself. It was average to me. If you don’t make a dinner reservation before you get there , you won’t get a reasonable dinner time. 9 p is too late when you have early calls both to get to Denali and for the excursion. As it was basically a 1 day turnaround , early excursions are your only option and the front desk employees were less than optimal. There was a distinct lack of organization for the morning tours and virtually no one to direct you to your coach. So. Next time , I’ll let the sweet suite experience of the cruise be the last taste I’ll have.

We found this to be the best of the Princess lodges. Quite happy with our room in B Block but would have been better on the river side. Lovely location, quiet and pleasant walks. A number of restaurants and specialty shops on site but the shopping was cheaper on the other side of the highway . Food and service very good at the King Salmon restaurant. Impressed with Princess's organisation with respect to luggage and transfers. The Tundra Wilderness Tour is a must.
