Fodor's Review

This humongous lodge lies along the Parks Highway in the Glitter Gulch community a mile north of the park entrance. Unlike the lodges at Kantishna, in the heart of the park, this one features rooms with TVs and telephones in case you want to catch up with the outside world. There is also a high-ceiling two-story main lodge with tour desk, sitting areas, gift shop, café, and dining room. Views from this hotel take in the Nenana River, and rich forest colors in rooms mimic the surroundings. Complimentary shuttle service is provided to the park and railroad station. The large King Salmon Dining Room offers an estimable view and fine dining featuring Alaskan seafood, and a dinner theater combines a meal with a musical comedy that recounts the first ascent of Mt. McKinley. If these don't suit your tastes, there are a variety of other eating venues within the lodge property.
