We just returned from a three night stay at the King Eider and this hotel far exceeded my expectations. The super friendly and helpful staff, the clean and comfortable rooms and the amazing hospitality are all reasons to stay here. The hotel has a very friendly cozy feeling, from the fire place and chess set in the lobby to taking off one's shoes when you enter the lobby. The full kitchenette is a plus, complete with pots, pans dishes and silverware. We actually saw the Top Of The World hotel and from the outside, it looks too corporate, not inviting like the King Eider. One goes to Barrow as a tourist to interact with the people. The King Eider aids in this and makes the trip more enjoyable. The walk from the airport to the lobby was far shorter that the walk to the parking garage in Phoenix!!!!
