The Princess Lodge in Fairbanks was very nice. The front desk and Tour guide desk were great. Our room was clean and cozy on the 1st floor (No refrigerator in the room), we had a view of the river but also where the trash bins were so that made it a bit noise at times. There were a few restaurants inside that I didn't eat at them but the menu looked great, a little pricey for me. The outdoor area was great, walking track, outside seating, and gift shop on site. It rained both days I was there so I didn't get outside much. Inside the gift shop was a section for Priority mail, to send items home. I wish I had known that before I headed to the Postal Office to send my packages home.
Over all a great hotel while on a Cruise Tour with Princess, the rooms do need an upgrade. I stayed at the Hoilday Inn before starting the cruise, it was near Walmart and other stores.
