I always try to stay at Pike's when I'm in Fairbanks (Bearflanks, Squarebanks) on business. Great value (comfort, service, breakfast, amenities, price). The service level is very good, the beds are great, the free breakfast is generous with a good variety, they are usually flexible on early check-in and late check-out, and it's close to the airport. The exercise room is clean and adequate. The decor and layout is nicely Alaskan, with original Alaskan artwork in a tasteful setting; Pike's is a refreshing break from the Hilton/Marriott big box hotel world.
The lobby has some well appointed nooks for client meetings, and meeting rooms for various size functions. Dinner next door at Pike's Landing is always a hit with clients. Make sure you ask for a room with wireless Internet, because I think the wifi doesn't reach all rooms.
I like spending my money in local businesses, so it's nice to hear that Pike's is owned by a member of the AK Legislature, and that they won an award for Employer of the Year for small business. While I've never had a problem, if the hotel screws up (and that happens with every business) the hotel is invested enough in its local reputation to make things right.
