Where to stay on July 4th?

We are arriving by train at 8:00 pm on the 4th of July and flying out first thing the following morning. I'm looking for a place to stay that is convenient to both the train station and the airport (or has shuttle service to and from both). A bonus would be a hotel close to any Fourth of July festivities. Thank you!

Well, the train depot and the airport aren't close to each other . . . and I don't know about hotels that offer train depot transport (as that is generally a summer thing and I don't stay in hotels during the summer in Fairbanks), but several offer it to the airport.

I don't know what Fairbanks may do during the 4th of July . . . maybe a parade? If so, that would probably be downtown, so you could stay at the Springhill suites by Marriot and I do know that they offer transport to the airport. You might do a search to see about 4th festivities before you book - hopefully, someone on the Fairbanks forum will add to this post. :)

No parade. No fireworks either since it doesn't get dark. I think there is usually something happening at Pioneer Park. Maybe you could swing by the salmon bake that evening. I would probably stay somewhere that has a shuttle to the airport. Sorry I don't have a specific recommendation. I live in Fairbanks so have never stayed at any hotels. The train depot is near downtown. Airport is on the western end of town. They are not close to each other. But Fairbanks isn't very big, so you'll probably be fine wherever you stay.

We have stayed at the Comfort Suites on Chena Loop Rd, that provides complimentary shuttle to both the airport and the train depot. I'd give them a call to double check to make sure they will still accommodate your needs.

P.S. Come to think about it, I think the Rivers Edge may also provide shuttle service to both as when we camped there, I recall being over at the hotel and someone was booking train depot arrangements.
