We had a stop over at the hotel on our way to Denali. Just had a hot chocolate. Seeing the place we really felt it was a great place we couldn't stay longer.

This is a wonderful spot for casual dinner or breakfast. Classic national park type restaurant fare but much better quality and taste than you may expect from a large hotel that mostly caters to bus trips.
