Stayed here as part of the Princess Train Trip from Fairbanks to Anchorage. The lodge is located a bit outside of downtown Fairbanks, but there are plenty of free shuttles running to and from town. Restaurants are located within the lodge, and they are pretty good. I was not impressed with the breakfast buffet. A bit pricey and food was... More

If you stay here in the peak period expect to become one of the masses. This place is extremely busy and not really giving you anything out of the ordinary. We stayed here one night at the start of the land portion of our cruise. Firstly this hotel is near the airport you will need to catch a taxi or... More

We recently had a group traveling to Alaska with a Princess land tour. The lodge we were given for Fairbanks was this one and it was a wonderful choice. The rooms and beds were very comfortable. Our only complaint was that we were all the way at the end of the hall so it was a long walk but someone... More

First stop in our land/cruise tour. Princess does a great job in making seamless connections between their lodges in their cruisetour itinerary. Princess desk at the airport had all our papers and room key and info. Shuttle was waiting for us and we arrived at the lodge very quickly. Room was very adequate, but not as grand as other lodges...

We began our land portion of our land/sea tour at this lodge. Our room was large, clean with a beautiful view of the Chena River. We did the Connoisseur cruise so our food was included. The tavern was a nice place to eat and relax. The lobby was beautiful with a large fireplace. It is a short ride from the... More

The hotel room is quite average. Beds were comfortable if small, bathroom tub and tile clean but dated. The room was overwhelming with a room freshener smell-think febreeze on steroids. It was way too much but fortunately the windows open so we left them open the whole time-it quickly aired out. The common areas and onsite restaurants make this a... More

Pretty nice accommodation but a fair way out of town. This is compensated for by a pleasant riverside setting (hence the name) and comfortable spacious rooms. We had a sunny evening and the terrace was packed for dinner. Given the crowds the service was pretty good and the food tasty. Breakfast was OK but again crowded and some choices were... More

The room was larger than average, with a great view of the river from our window. The staff was friendly and helpful. We walked the trails around the hotel, which were well marked and added interesting information along the way. We ordered pizza from town for an evening snack after traveling. The buffet in the morning was very crowded and... More

A great place to stay on the banks Chena River. The lodge is very close to the Fairbanks airport and Princess provides a free shuttle service to/from the airport. Princes also runs a shuttle to/from downtown Fairbanks. Excursions are offered by Princess as well. The restaurant is good and the food is very tasty.
