Not only is it the best hotel in Fairbanks, Zach's in one of the two or three best restaurants in town. Super clean suites with lots of room. Best of... More

Sophie Station is a modern suite hotel, adorned with beautiful flowers outside and a tastefully decorated, well-staffed, restaurant that serves..., well delicious, fresh, tantalizing cuisine that is way above the quality you might expect in a town as small and seemingly isolated as Fairbanks.

We stayed at Sophie Station for 2 nights and loved it. The suite is quite large and comfortable. We had 4 rooms - a kitchen (with microwave, toaster, coffee machine, fridge, stove), lounge room, bedroom & bathroom. We were on the 3rd floor so had a balcony. Hotel is only a few minutes drive to the airport. About an 8... More

Nice hotel not far from the airport. There isn't much around that is within walking distance, but there is a nice restaurant and bar inside the hotel that does the job. They also have a convenient shuttle to the airport that runs 24 hours a day.

Our recent vacation included a stay at this hotel. We found the entire staff welcoming and friendly. Our suite was well appointed and met all of our needs. The kitchen area included basic appliances (fridge, stove, microwave) that served us well. Now, some might complain that the appliances were basic (not stainless steel), but everything worked to our satisfaction. The... More

This is the second time we have stayed here...was great. They just really go out of the way to make your stay great. And the restaurant was very good also. We would do this place anytime we could get to Fairbanks...oh the flowers ...so beautiful. Everything clean and comfortable.

2nd floor suite with BR with 2 Queen beds, kitchenette living area with small balcony. Spent 4 nights while visiting daughter. Noisy with windows open/next to busy street. Cost reduced on weekend when no breakfast /lunch available in restaurant. Continental breakfast would have been good option on w/e.

Sophie Station Suites was the first stop on our 3-week land and sea tour of Alaska and the Canadian Rockies. What a wonderful way to kick off the Holiday. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable - couldn't ask for more. Not that watching TV is high on our list when we're traveling...but, when you're in Fairbanks in July and... More
