All the Extras
While you might not want to leave the comfort of your own room, you’d miss out on some of the SpringHill Suites’ best amenities! Meet up with your group in a lobby that’s decked out with comfortable chairs and art created by local artists. You can get to know one another and discuss your upcoming tour or make evening dinner plans at the on-site restaurant, Lavelle’s Bistro! If you have some extra energy to burn, they also have an indoor pool, whirlpool hot tub and a 24-hour fitness center complete with cardio equipment and free weights so you don’t have to miss your regular workout. Then, in the morning, you can fuel up for the day with their free buffet breakfast. The choices go beyond the regular continental breakfast fare leaving you feeling full and ready to tackle your day.
Wine and Dine
Aside from the fantastic breakfast, the SpringHill Suites’ on-site restaurant, Lavelle’s Bistro, boasts one of the largest wine cellars in all of Fairbanks! Their wine list runs 18 pages long and you can sit next to a glass wall display filled with bottles of wine from all over the world. Don’t like wine? They also have a full bar and amazing food. They use fresh ingredients from Alaska when possible, including Alaskan grown and Certified Angus Beef and wild caught Alaskan King Crab. Great trips deserve great food and Lavelle’s Bistro has some of the best!

We chose Tripadvisor’s 2018 Certificate of Excellence winner, SpringHill Suites, because we want you to be comfortable and well-rested so that you can get the most out of your Alaskan Northern Lights Adventure!
