Predominately used for Cruiser takers!
The hotel is on smaller ground than Mt McKinley Princess Lodge but has more rooms and is surrounded by a few other hotels, independent shops and restaurants also.

The lodge is luxury base with plenty of facilities on sight and close proximity to the Park entrance and rail station.

This is a massive hotel complex filled with lots of cruise tourists, but it’s very conveniently located to restaurants, shops and the Denali National Park visitor center. We arrived by train from Fairbanks and our bags were delivered directly to the hotel, which left us free to start exploring Denali straight away.

The room was a little old and not particularly nice given the price we paid, but it was clean and comfortable (and exorbitant prices are to be expected at Denali in peak season). The biggest drawback was a drinks vending machine out in the hallway that was very noisy whenever the motor was running, which thankfully wasn’t too often (it was directly opposite the door to the room next to ours – I would’ve asked to be moved if we were put in that room).

The service at reception and in the restaurants and cafes was more miss than hit. Some people on reception were helpful, while some were not very forthcoming with information despite asking lots of questions. The service at the Grizzly Bar and Grill was mediocre, and was terrible at the café in the main building.

We used the free shuttle two times. On the first occasion, the driver was in a very bad mood and was rude to everyone. On the second occasion, the driver was very friendly and helpful. The rest of the time we walked to and from the Denali Visitor Center via the Jonesville Trail (it took about 40 minutes at a fairly slow pace and was very pleasant walk).

We were on a 2 week land tour in July 2017 in Alaska. One our Lodges was the Denali Princess Wilderness lodge. It had beautiful feel like camping in the Mountains. There were a lot of lodge buildings. With plenty of one bedroom units available. Very comfortable accommodations. There were several buildings on site. That have awesome stuff to look at or buy and take home. They had one such building that made hand carved bears.Plenty of Restaurants near by. We stayed only one night here prior to scheduled Denali national park tour. Which was awesome. Overall nice stay.

We, a party of 2 couples, stayed here while taking the Alaska train south in Sept. First, we were not part of a Princess cruise tour this time though we had sailed on Princess in the past. That was the reason we selected a Princess lodge - we liked their cruises. After being considered '2nd class' (non-Princess tour) travelers in Fairbanks we were a little worried about the Denali lodge. We didn't need to be. The lodge (or someone) provides shuttle service to and from the train depot. We didn't see any sign of taxis. Our luggage was delivered to our room from the train but I think that might have been due to an error at the train depot in Fairbanks. When we checked in at the depot we were asked where we were headed and told them the Princess Lodge in Denali. Our luggage was tagged 'Princess' and was picked up by the lodge. I really hope this was a service they provide but I can't be sure. We'd made our own lodging arrangements directly with the Lodge site and when we arrived our two rooms were several buildings apart. We asked if could be closer together and the helpful staff found another room in one of the buildings so we were just a few rooms apart. We stayed up on Caribou Ridge which is on the bluff overlooking the river. It's also right off the highway but we didn't hear much traffic noise. The building was a little different from the others below making us wonder if it might have been a separate hotel at some point. We walked wherever we needed but there is an on site shuttle if you aren't able to get around the complex easily. The rooms weren't real big and didn't have a fridge or microwave (the fridge would have been nice) but provided a one-cup coffee maker. The little breakfast bar upstairs had Starbuck's coffee as well as some breakfast items (muffins, yogurt, etc). The grounds are well kept up and it was like being in a small town. Across the highway is a small grocery store, some shops, and places to eat - all walking distance. We ate at the Princess Grizzly Bar and Grill. We all really enjoyed the prime rib sandwiches. I think the only place that served a full breakfast was the King Salmon. Through the tour desk we were able to book the 4-hr tour of Denali. Since we were late booking it appeared that the 4 of us would need to be split up into two different groups and buses. But Mary was very helpful and managed to get us onto the same bus. These tours are run by the National Park concessionaires and we rode something similar to school buses. No coaches so no onboard toilets. But we stopped 2 or 3 times and toilets (outhouses) were available. The tours aren't cheap but it's the only way we were going to be able to get deeper into Denali. Private autos are only allowed a few miles in.

We a were with Princess Cruises and had a wonderful time. We traveled with friends and our rooms were side by side. The restaurants were clean and the food was good. The flowers and decor were positively awesome. Our rooms were clean and comfortable and we can not complain about anything. We enjoyed it all!

Room Tip: Our rooms were included with our Princess package.
