We flew into Fairbanks and enjoyed our stay for 4 days of the land portion of our cruise. Good breakfast choices and the one dinner we had there was very good. Nice river views and clean rooms. Had dinner on the deck overlooking the river was fun

Located on the banks of the river, the grounds are very nice and the hotel is quite spacious The deck overlooking the water is a wonderful place to relax with a glass of wine. We had wonderful views of the Aurora Borealis from the carpark (midnight-ish). The rooms were lovely and the food in the dining room and bar was... More

The hotel was about a 3 star the rooms were O/k bed was comfortable. Meals average and as it was almost at the end of their holiday season staff definitely were not very attentive they spend most of there time talking in small groups and seem reluctant to attend to requests for service.

This hotel was great, large rooms with glimpse of the river. It would be great for a conference as we had a get together in one, that was spacious with good food and wine. Food in the restaurant was yummy. We saw the Northern Lights which were on show for both nights we were there.

The hotel is simply just nice and basic. Nice comfy bed , nice staff and nice ambience. Would definitely recommend as a 4 star style accom. Having a gym on site was a bonus for me. Food in restaurants was quite nice as well

I had no specific issues with the Princess Lodge, but it wasn't one of the highlights of the trip. We stayed there for two nights after a 7-day cruise. Despite having a view of the river, it was disappointing that it looked out over a parking lot with bright lights on at night that made it tough to enjoy the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Princess lodge. We were there two nights. The bar was reasonable. Nice walks on the founds down on the river. Interesting huts built on the outside to show you how early settlers lived. We didn't eat at the restaurants there.

There are other hotels in the Fairbanks area with nicer facilities than this Princess Lodge BUT if you booked your stay as part of a Princess land and sea package, there are many benefits to staying here. A Princess representative meets you at the airport and transfers are provided to the lodge. You avoid having to check in as the... More

This was our first stay on the land portion of our Princess connoisseur tour. We booked in a night early because of our late flight arrival time, and were very impressed with the efficiency of the airport welcome, transfer to the hotel, and hotel check-in. We had a lovely (and quite large) king-bedded room near the lobby area, with a... More

From airport arrival to the hotel was well organised . Quick efficient check in but a large property so easy to walk a while before you get your to room This is part of the princess umbrella. We had a 2nd story room overlooking the river but not much of a view. This is an older style hotel with shower... More
