We traveled to Fairbanks as the starting point of our land and sea tour and stayed at the SpringHill Suites in downtown Fairbanks. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The ameneties were not overwhelming but fine for a moderately priced hotel. They had an indoor pool, which was closed at one point for cleaning, but that at least shows an attempt at cleanliness. There were 2 elevators but at one time both elevators were down requiring you to carry yourself and your luggage up to your room. They did have a laundry room, however, the dryer did not do a very good job of drying your clothes and you had to pay even more money to get them finished. Breakfast was included, and it was satisfactory, like any other hotel breakfast in the lobby area. The staff was nice, but at times appeared frazzled, especially when the elevators were out of service. Visiting in late June, when the sun is out for 22 hours, they could do a better job with the blinds to block out the near constant light that shines in. Overall, it was adequate for our needs, but couldn't see myself making it a long duration stay at this property. Have been at many much better Marriott properties and found ourselves somewhat disappointed. Location was good, right across from river and park and just a few blocks from tourist center and shopping areas. But I guess if you are visiting Fairbanks in June, you shouldn't be spending too much time in your room when there is so much to explore.
