Fairbanks Princess: just $69/night

In Adventure, Lodging, Uncategorized by scott

Head to Fairbanks. Stay at the Fairbanks Princess. It’s just $69 in November. Great deal, really.

While you’re there, check out the Museum of the North at the University of Alaska. And don’t miss the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum. And the Morris Thompson Visitors Center–AWESOME.

I just got off the phone with Deb Hickok of the Fairbanks Convention and Visitors Bureau. She’s pretty excited about winter! “We have snow,” she boasted. “So, there’s cross-country skiing, dog mushing and you can see the northern lights,” she said.

Fairbanks is famous for its ice, y’know. You can go to the ice museum right downtown at 500 2nd Ave.

You should also drive out to Chena Hot Springs and check out the Ice Hotel, which is filled with carvings from Heather and Steve Brice.

I like the breakfast at the Fairbanks Princess–it’s one of the best in town, particularly because there is free internet all around the hotel. But for dinner, the best place is Lavelle’s , in the lobby of the Spring Hill Suites–right downtown.

The special rate at the Princess is available through Nov. 30. It’s internet-only, so visit the website to make your reservations. Tell ’em Scott sent you.
