Very well kept hotel, clean and tidy. The rooms are not particularly spacious, but quite comfortable. If you like aeroplanes - like I do - one side of the building has got a good view of Fairbanks airport; if you prefer maximum quietness, there are rooms on the opposite side too. Breakfast was alright, with only one thing that I missed: a microwave oven, to get my porridge piping hot (hot water is provided in thermos, but it's not the same thing).
This hotel deserves the Oscar for the fastest complimentary Wireless Internet. I was impressed to see download rates in excess of 500 kB/s. Maybe I was the only one on-line at that particular time, but still it's quite remarkable for a public hotspot.
The reason why I'll remember this hotel, anyway, is another one. On my flight back from Fairbanks, I realised that I had forgotten a fair deal of cash in the hotel room, hidden - or at least I thought it was - in the yellow pages (what a smart idea...)
I didn't have any hope to see my money again, so didn't even bother to enquiry, but a day later I received an e-mail from Jymi, the Operation Manager, offering me to mail my belongings to my home address, which they promptly did. I praise the honesty and kindness of the manager and housekeeping staff.
If I go back to Fairbanks, I know where to stay!
