Fodor's Review

In the heart of downtown Fairbanks, just above the Chena River, the Bridgewater has gone through several incarnations, emerging most recently as a modern, European-style hotel. The Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center is within walking distance, as are downtown shops and restaurants. To visit attractions farther afield, guests can take advantage of the hotel's free trolley, which also provides service to the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary, both at a sister property, the Wedgewood Resort. Flowers overflow the hanging baskets, and wicker furniture adorns the light and airy lobby, creating a warm, summertime atmosphere. Poster-size historical photos on the walls provide glimpses into the past.
