We always stay at the Lakefront because it is Iditarod headquarters for the race. Lots of pre-race and during the race activities. Good food and great staff. ONE CONCERN; the hotel gift shop has been closed for some uniknown reasaon. I strongly urge that management consider reopening the gift shop.. it is needed !!
