“2 Weeks in Fairbanks is not enough !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2004

Returning to Fairbanks after 40 years, you find yourself in love again. The physical beauty of Alaska shares the beauty of what makes Alaska so spectacular: the people.

Taking the train from Anchorage to Denali and then to Fairbanks, scenery that is beyond comprehension.

If you make Fairbanks your basecamp, rent a car and you can go just about anywhere: Denali for white water rafting, jeep safaris, and helicopter rides; up to Chena Hot Springs or the North Pole.
Esther Gold Camp, river boat trips, University of Alaska's museum or the Yukon museum in downtown Fairbanks, Pioneer Park for their all you can eat salmon bake, prime rib, cod, and halibut.
Chocolate cake, blueberry cobbler, and coffee that would make Starbuck's jealous.

We stayed at the Spring Hill Suites by Marriott. The staff was superb. Make your own waffle in the a.m. with a wonderful continental breakfast or wait and have dinner at LaVelle's.

If you are there and want to see the Northern Lights, you can go to www.photosymphony.com.

There are no words to adequately express what Alaska is. You just have to go and experience it for yourself.

I stayed here in June 2004. The hotel is very conveniently located in the center of town across the road from the Visitor Center. Very good complimentary breakfast and exceptionally helpful and friendly staff at the front desk. They very willingly resolved a problem for us, were very polite and with a great sense of humor. I highly recomend this hotel

The suite was nice, clean and spacious. The Bistro was awesome, some of the best food in Fairbanks. The pool was clean and surprisingly not at all crowded. Good location for tourists. Recommend highly.

Stayed overnight in March 2004 on business. First time at this hotel as it is usually sold out. I know why. Great location and Lavalle's is best restaurant in Fairbanks - there aren't many good ones!

Typical Spring Hill Suites, but for Fairbanks that's a 4 star hotel.

Will stay again although the Westmark is opening a new tower soon.

Hotel room was VERY clean and quiet. We stayed on the sixth floor. The stay was very helpful. Don't park on the street any longer then the signs allow for or you might get a parking ticket like I did. Centrally located which was nice. We stayed six nights in Mid March. Ft Wainwright is close by and you can get a pass to get on base and go sleding with the kids which was nice. Get away from town at night to see the northern lights on a clear night. Probably no more then 20 min's from the airport. Never went in the pool but it looked nice, and warm! Room had two TV's, desk,Frig.,Microwave,couch, chairs,iron w/board,two sinks & internet access.

We stayed two separate times around Christmas 2003 and enjoyed both times. Very helpful staff, pool and jacuzzi were clean (& devoid of other guests), and bar/restaurant has a good selection of local beer.
Location is a definite plus; no rental car and only needed to take a cab once (due more to cold than distance).

First stay was in non-smoking room, second in smoking room. Definitely stay in non-smoking room if at all possible.

Midnight Mine (local bar) is only a few blocks away and it was a hoot and a half. Try curling at the Fairbanks curling club. Santa Claus House in nearby North Pole, AK was a bit of a disappointment.

I stayed for 17 days at SpringHill Suites in March 2003. The room was very nice and the staff very helpful. I'll stay there again if I go back to Fairbanks. One tip - ask for a room facing the river. It's more scenic. Another tip if you aren't traveling with children - the sixth floor is their "quiet" floor. Downside: they have the slowest moving elevators I've ever been in.
