We stayed for three nights. The room was larger, better maintained, and cleaner than several other Alaska hotels we've stayed in.

Spacious room. Clean. Wireless computer easy to log on to. Microwave. Two televisions, old style versus flat screen but worked fine and had two HBO channels so better than many other places in Alaska on that score. Provided reliable wake up calls. Nice sink and makeup counter separate from toilet/bath/shower. Decent breakfast laid out, and didn't have Fox network on the television during breakfast thank God! (What is it with Fox being turned on in most public places with a TV?) King size bed, which isn't as easy to come by in Alaska. Bed pretty comfortable, although I would have preferred a more plush mattress pad. Plenty of pillows. Friendly staff at desk. Across the street from the river, visitors center, and bridge that leads to a pretty church. Downtown so close to local shops. Free parking.

Fridge barely worked so we didn't eat the food we put in it. Thought about trying to get a window open for some fresh air but the bird poop outside the window changed my mind. Wanted hot chocolate in the mornings but none provided in the room or at breakfast. Toilet so loud it could wake the dead. Parking a little tight. Almost didn't even get a spot our last night, which should never happen to guests, but one opened up just as we were giving up.

I had a migraine my last day, nauseated, in pain, and dizzy, so was moving slow and the staff was pleasant about letting me check out late.

Overall this place is better than many hotels in Alaska. The fact that it was clean, the bed didn't hurt my back, and the staff understood the concept of customer service was a pleasant surprise. I will stay there again next trip.

First the Pros:
1. Great location for downtown activities
2. Rooms clean & spacious
3. Hot breakfast bar was plentiful & varied – fruits, waffles, bagles & breads, egg & sausage patties, etc
4. Lavelle’s Bistro was excellent. Very friendly, customer-oriented staff and awesome wine selection.

Now the Cons:
1. My room was on 3rd floor and could still hear street noise thru the night and even in the bathroom the next morning.
2. Noisy furnace
3. Check-in was a little ragged in that even though were checking in at 3, they only had rooms ready for 2 of our party of 4.

Bottom line, the hotel was ok, but nothing too whippy.

Not bad, it was very clean. The continental breakfast was good. There was quite a bit drunk people 20's-30's every time we went on the elevator. The pool was great! Again very clean. Parking lot was small, but you can park on the road during certain hours. There was a guy on the staff when we went to check in who seemed like he didn't really feel like working. But all other staff was great.

My wife and I, and 2 kids stayed here 4 nights in late July using hotel points. We had a great time and the hotel served our needs well. This would be a pretty average Marriott property in most places, but I rate it much higher compared to other choices in Fairbanks. The location is excellent, right by the beautiful river in downtown. It is easy to walk to shopping, and a number of restaurants and attractions. The parking lot is small, but there is an overflow lot right across the street. We never had any problems with parking. The rooms have an unusual layout, but worked well for us, with a refrigerator and microwave included. Service was good, and our room was clean and quiet on the top floor overlooking the river. We used the shuttle to pick us up at the airport and to take us to the train - the drivers were very friendly and helpful. Overall the hotel was a great choice and we had a good time in Fairbanks.

We spent six weeks in Fairbanks while I received medical treatment in April and May 2009 after getting severe frostbite in the far north of Alaska. We stayed at SpringHill Suites during that time. The front desk staff and the housekeeping staff could not have been more helpful, and gave us excellent service and support during a difficult time. This is a very well run hotel. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and well suited to a longer stay. The location is convenient and there is an attractive outlook from the riverside rooms. SpringHill Suites, Fairbanks provides excellent value. There is no restaurant, but there is a very good, independently owned restaurant in the building, and a number of others nearby. Other reviewers have commented about the breakfast. Yes, it could be more exciting, but it was perfectly adequate, and part of the good value that this hotel provides. We would have absolutely no hesitation about staying there again. It is the best place to be in Fairbanks.
