Best price. Best hotel.

Front desk ladies are always super nice, even at 3 morning! The rooms are nicely decorated and really clean. By far the best hotel I've stayed in!

great stay

Our check-in went smoothly with no problems. The room was spacious and very clean. The beds were super comfortable. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was quite relaxing. The breakfast was excellent with the usual fare plus make your own omelet and waffles..

FBX Hotel

Nice Hotel, however, no printer available from business center or front desk for business billing needs. Is a necessity while traveling and determination in selecting hotel. Also, would have booked 10 day stay instead of two day stay if cancellation penalty was not so severe -total forfeit of remaining booking if plans changed after check in.

Best beds & rooms in Alaska!!

Just came off cruise/tour..15 nights which was very ,very good. When tour ended, checked into BW Plus Chena River Lodge. Were overwhelmedly suprised. I thought they had just opened..i.e. brand new hotel, but opened in 2008, per mgr. Room was large, super clean with top-of-the-line finishings, huge shower and the most comfortable beds (&softest bed linens!) of our whole trip (previous stays included the Fairmont and all the Princess lodges). We have not stopped raving. Breakfast was wonderful and fresh and the staff was so friendly & ready to help. This place really made our trip. Can't stop raving about it & will definitely visit again. Thank you!
