A lovely rustic Lodge very close to Denali. There's a great view of the mountain from inside the lodge and from the expansive deck. The rooms are wonderful. We had a beautiful suite which was very romantic. The Princess staff took care of all of our needs.

We arrived here late in the afternoon, our room was on the second floor and overlooked a manmade water feature. The bathroom was good and the bed very comfy. Our room was super hot as the thermostat wasnt working, so we had to leave the window open. We walked along the pathways looking for wildlife and only found moose poo...

Spent the weekend at the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge. Closer to Talkeetna and Trapper Creek than the entrance to the Park. It's at 133 mile N. Park Rd. It's about 110 miles to the entrance to the park road. Our first room started leaking water from upstairs and they moved us to another room. The rooms are standard. There...

Stayed at the princess lodge. I am guessing we were one of the first tour groups through for the season. So unorganized, especially in the North Fork restaurant. GUYS LETS WORK TOGETHER RATHER THAN BLAMING EVERYONE ELSE. I have traveled all over the world and must say i have never experienced staff blaming diners for having the same names ....

One of the bars was very small but near a beautiful open air spot with fireplaces. Great place too heat yourself and have a beer with...

First 2 nights of the land portion of our Princess Cruises Alaska Cruises. The rooms were nice and clean with a comfy bed but very very basic. Not much to do around the resort with only 2.5 miles of walking trails and the hot tubs were broken. To do any tours was very expensive and to get into town was...

Stayed here on a trip from Denali to Anchorage. This place is kind of spread out so if you have mobility issues it may be a problem. They have fires at night for s'mores and they provide pokers. There is two restaurants and a coffee house. There is a couple hiking trails and super views of Denali if the clouds...

Have travelled a lot in the Northern wilderness. This Lodge is well above the usual standards of the far North. Beautiful views of Denali during our stay. Best in morning before clouds build. Very nice public facilities, fire pits, friendly and attentive staff. Rooms are clean and functional. Had a very nice meal in the 20,320 Alaskan Grill. Crab and...

We spent 3 nights at this hotel, and used it as a base for Denali. It was a fair drive to and from the park, and along with the Shuttle to Wonder Lake, made for a long day - but as the days were long in the summer, that wasn't horrible. The property itself is very nice - very reminiscent...
