Fodor's Review

Log columns and beams support the high ceiling in the lobby of this hotel and conference center on the bank of the Chena River. More than 20,000 flowering plants grace the grounds, a ½-mile river walk borders the property, and on summer days a daily attendant-led stroll of the house ducks through the lobby will delight kids and adults. Green touches include solar panels, carpets made from recycled materials, and a greenhouse that university students tend. The lodge contains several warm and cozy common areas, including a piano room and a fireplace lounge, and the excellent beds in the rooms make for a restful ending to an active day touring Fairbanks. For a higher rate, riverfront rooms offer scenic views. If you're looking for a more Alaskan experience, try one of the 28 rustic log cabins.

As good as it gets! WOW!

Location,service, hospitality and location (Definitetly worth repeating). First, so convenient to airport, downtown and U of A Museum of the North. The taff will drive ou anywhere is this quaint city for a very nominal fee and reliable. Ok- staff...they don't get more courteous or considerate and are really good at providing recommendations an the owner Jay is there to oversee on a daily basis (an MOT...see doorpost as you enter). Back to location...on

the river with 2 great restaurants, both owned by the same owner, who is also in constant supervision. Restaurant next door (one of Pike's) has beautiful deck overlooking river. This is a genuine review folks with no previous contact before. This was a strt of a 2 week trip that had a WOW factor and was unexpected. Enjoy this place.
