I was in Fairbanks Alaska for a whole month working on a science research project.
Every person at the Sophie was a delight. The front desk staff were always friendly and as accomidating as they could be. There were always a few people at the front desk so I rarely had to wait at all. All you have to do is ask and they always have a new adventure. I was a little late for the dogsledding, but they pointed me to a wonderful hotspring and an ice festival that I thought were amazing.
There were only two sets of laundry machines($6/load) for the guest laundry, but they were never full. I never had to wait at all, and every room in the hotel was booked all month.
The most remarkable was the efficency of the maid service. Every single day they cleaned the room to make it look just as it did when I checked in. When one person checked out, I happened to walk past their room to see them steam cleaning the back side of the couch. That struck me as incredible. I would never think to clean there.
Always clean, always friendly, always warm. A great place to stay!More
