“All considered, great choice in Fairbanks.”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

Good sized room, comfortable bed, well equipped with fridge, microwave,flat screen tv, free high speed net(wired or wireless) good breakfast, very good location across from waterfront park that seems to have something different going on every day. ONLY complaint is the elevators....there are 2 and the operation between floors is PAINFULLY SLOW. During my 5 day visit, 1 elevator was broken and the 1 that was working seemed to no air conditioning. Parking is limited.

We stayed at this hotel before going on our cruise tour. The room was very spacious and clean. It was big enough for our family of four with all of the suitcases. The beds were very comfortable too!

Checking in was a breeze. However, their "free shuttle service" isn't so reliable. We were told (rather rudely) by the shuttle bus driver that since Marriott has a contract with Delta Airlines that we would not fit in the van and would have to wait about half an hour before she would be back at the airport. The Delta employees were not even off the plane yet, so we ended up taking a $35.00 cab ride there. Luckily, the front desk was able to reimburse us.

It is within walking distance of a few good restaurants and some sites of Fairbanks and the front desk is great a giving recommendations.

Their free breakfast in the morning was great, but nothing spectacular. Waffles, eggs, bacon, cereal, bagels, toast, etc. Pretty standard and the room was big enough to fit everyone that was there.

After reading a couple of earlier reviews I was hesitant to book here, but we wanted to arrive in Fairbanks a day early to meet up with our tour group and wanted to use my Marriott points, so we went ahead and booked. The room was fine with a comfortable bed and good water pressure in the shower (my two must haves), and the hotel is adjacent to Lavelle's bistro (great for a bite after arriving in town late). There is also a little coffee shop right across the street, so I was able to get my morning latte to start the day. It was a great first place to stay in Fairbanks and we'd definitely do it again. It is also fairly close (10 mins. or so by car) to The Cookie Jar, a small breakfast/lunch restaurant that was excellent.

Pretty standard. Nothing terribly special about the room or the service.

Checking in was completed quickly and with a friendly smile at 2300. I really wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised with the room quality. Large, clean room with many amenities. Coffee, refrigerator and microwave were in the room. The bed was so comfortable that I didn't want to get out. The only gripe that I might have, and it is very minor, is that the A/C is a bit noisy, turning it off provides for a very quiet night.

Nice hotel, right in downtown (small town). Staff are very helpful and have shuttle service to take us to airport and railroad.

This is the only Marriott hotel in Fairbanks, and while it is a decent place to stay, I don't think it lives up to my expectations of what a Marriott hotel should be. I'm a gold elite member with them, so I've stayed in a LOT of Marriotts, and this one is just a little less than others. Parking is non-existent, and they will ticket you while you're checking in. There are typically tons of school teams staying there, making it very loud. I'm not really impressed with their treatment of elite Marriott Rewards members either. But, I do stay here pretty much every time that I come to town. Even for all the problems I have with the hotel, it is probably better than 90% of the other hotels I know of in Fairbanks - exception being Pike's Landing.
