This is a new hotel which no doubt was logistically difficult to build near the Arctic. It is a modular construction with a gift shop, lobby, and restaurant. I felt the facility was very nice. However, our room stayed perpetually hot even with the heat off and the window open. I suspect it was because of the two floors below us heating up our room. There was no room service, but a nice restaurant down stairs. The service in the restaurant was a bit slow, sometimes out of things, and the prices high (to be expected in Alaska). I really liked the proximity room keys (RFID) which is the first I have seen anywhere.
Overall, a great hotel
