“Beautiful hotel with great view of Mt McKinley at the Reception / Lounge”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We were blessed with the perfect weather when we got to the hotel. Our room didn't have the great view of Mt McKinley but the every room does have a view of some sort. If you get there on a good weather day, you can see Mt McKinley spread before your eyes when you lunch at the café or sit inside the reception lounge. Do take a flight over McKinley on such weather because you will be rewarded to breath taking views of the peaks and glaciers. Food was good at the café but you must try the home made chips. They are just to die for. My husband tried to blue cheese rib-eye steak and he really liked it. I had the Inside Passage Seafood Cioppino and it was good. Too bad they didn't have gluten free bread. It would have been great with scooping up the cioppino. The hotel also offers seminars. One night they brought in a park ranger to talk about the dos and don'ts of mountain climbing at Mt McKinley.

This hotel is a keeper. Will definitely go there if we travel there again.

Room Tip: If you want to pay a little bit more, get a room with the view of Mt McKinley. But you get that view...

We spent 5 days in and around Denali and we never saw the mountain until we got to this hotel. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary eating dinner at the hotel restaurant with an amazing view of the mountain. The hotel was clean, modern and comfortable. The view of McKinley is everything.

Stayed here as part of our land/sea cruisetour. Spectacular view of Mt.McKinley. Beautiful patios and terraces to just gaze out over the mountains. Only think keeping me from rating this hotel as Excellent was that the staff seemed overwhelmed with getting the bags from the tour bus to our room. We finally ended up going outside and getting our own so we could change and take the shuttle into the town.

This was, by far, the most spectacular view of all. The hotel is so lovely inside and out. The staff was friendly, helpful and very informative about the area. We loved the fireplace lounge with the most comfortable sofas ever in a hotel. You just don't want to move!! But, you really just want to stand out on the extensive deck and just take in the view. They have a nice walking trail also that takes you around the whole property.

Wow what a panoramic view of the Denali range! Hotel is very nice with large rooms and great gathering areas. But who cares about the room and the hotel when you can stand outside and stare, oh and you will.

Room Tip: go the extra and get the room with a view and that way you will not be standing outside at midnight...

There are lots of places to stay in Talkeetna area, but this hotel and grounds are quite outstanding. Staff is very helpful with making & confirming reservations for the multitude of activities nearby. Rooms are spacious and quiet. Fireplace lounge very comfortable at the end of a busy day. Some things to know: the hotel is a stop-over for many cruises/tours. It is a large hotel, so don't expect a boutique feeling. Take care on paved walk ways (we were barely missed by a hotel golf cart delivering luggage to an outer building (X3 !). Wake up call not done on first morning (many apologies from desk clerk). TV & internet in all rooms. Lots of walking paths on property, but like other reviewers signs posted noting bear & moose sightings put us off exploring.
[I also reviewed the Bistro Cafe (restaurant within the hotel). Kind of a hit or miss, depending on what you order.]

Room Tip: I cannot imagine any room that was less than satisfactory. Beautiful setting and grounds. If you ar...

Stayed here on the way to Denali & had a lovely view of the river from my balcony. Room was quiet & well equipped. We walked around to the back of the hotel & found a great path for a lovely walk, although on return noted a bear had been on property & the huge amount of fresh moose droppings makes me think it would be quite possible to run into one.
Service & food in the upscale restaurant was excellent. I would definitely stay here again.
