Fodor's Expert Review Cape Fox Lodge

800 Venetia Way, Ketchikan, Alaska, 99901, USA

With scenic views of the town and Thomas Basin from 135 feet above Creek Street, Cape Fox Lodge is cozy yet luxurious, and offers spacious rooms with traditional tribal colors and watercolors of Alaska birds. A towering, log-framed lobby has Tlingit and Haida artwork and an interesting collection of museum-quality artifacts, and there's often a roaring fire. All rooms have views of either Tongass Narrows or Deer Mountain. Numshee Jitters (that's "Crazy" Jitters in Tlingit) is the lobby's coffee shop, and the busy Heen Kahidi Dining Room serves three meals a day.

PROS

  • all rooms have views
  • on-site artwork by master carvers
  • beautiful site overlooking town

CONS

  • rooms are rather plain
  • hotel has a bit of a conference-property feel
  • few amenities
