      Lots of restaurants opportunity. A little far to walk to. Taking luggage to the 2nd floor is hard.

      The best thing about this property was the proximity to the Denali National Park. Second best was trail along the road in front of the resort so I could run and catch some beautiful views, plus it led to trails leading into Denali's park. There is a short walking path along the river, too. I hadn't done much research about he property, so was a bit confused about room locations. Parking can be a challenge, but if you don't mind walking, it's doable, just not fast. There are shuttles to get people around the property, too. Dining on property was fine, priced at what I would expect for a resort.
