Our room was pleasant and comfortable (no A/C but that is common in Alaska). My only room-related gripe is that there is an info channel on the TV that is very stupidly programmed to make finding the information you need very frustrating and time consuming. We gave up on it and just called the front desk when we needed information....

Lodge was beautiful. The rooms were set up with the rustic theme right down to the lighting fixtures. Room was clean. Several options for dinner. Breakfast was buffet or snack bar (Starbucks). Since bus loads left at a time, it was always long lines!! Seemed fairly new. Shopping across the highway. Walking distance with a traffic light. Transportation was available...

Reading the negative comments here, I'm puzzled why some people were expecting a higher class hotel. It is advertised as a "wilderness lodge" so there really shouldn't be any misunderstanding that the place is going to be a bit sparse and not so "luxurious". The lodge is expansive and is divided into 4 sections: Princess Villages, Caribou Ridge, Wolf Den,...

Princess lodges ate all great. This one is in the middle of everything. Restaurants & shops on property and many more right across the street. Even the park is a walkable distance. (But take the shuttle so you can save your energy for hiking in the park. )

We stayed here in July during our cruise tour with Princess. We were looking forward to it, thinking it would be an upscale hotel/lodge. We were very disappointed. We travel a lot and normally stay at moderately priced hotels, but this was one step below. Most of the Fairfield Inns and Comfort Inns we stay at are better accommodations than...

Room was clean, carpet needed updating bed was hard and flat king bed had only three pillows for a couple .No fridge in room only to places to eat on property the food was fair at best ,service was top notch the biggest thing to remember is that you are in the middle of nowhere.

The hotel room at this lodge was just a very basic/average hotel room. There was nothing special. A rating of 2-1/2 would be more accurate for the room. Princess controls most of the venues there now. They booked us here as part of our cruse package. The real reason you are here is because of Denali National park and Mt....

The Mt. McKinley lodge was more spectacular and we enjoyed the restaurants more. However, we had a great comfortable stay here. Princess really takes care of you on the land portion. They handle your luggage between stops with care and speed. Our entire land adventure from Fairbanks down to the boat in Wittier was easy and filled with great excursions.

My first impression of Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge was that it was warm and inviting - and huge! The lobby in the main building is a very busy place where folks are checking in and the many tours gather to meet throughout the day. Downstairs is a food court where you can buy snacks, sandwiches, coffee and breakfast items in...
