Alaska's genuine northern hospitality can be found at the Bridgewater Hotel, a unique boutique-style hotel with the service and amenities of a traditional hotel. Bridgewater Hotel is open mid-May through mid-September.


An attentive staff and the friendliest general manager you're likely to meet will ensure your stay is unforgettable. You'll discover a blend of Alaskan charm, affordable accommodations and be humored by the fabulous stories of Fairbanks' river front history.

From a hearty Alaskan breakfast buffet of blueberry buttermilk pancakes and old-fashioned oatmeal with assorted toppings to your requested wake-up call to view the magnificent Northern Lights in late summer, you're not likely to forget the experience of downtown Fairbanks.

The hotel overlooks the Chena River where you can watch canoes and kayaks meander down the slow moving water. Or enjoy the outdoor flower gardens and sitting area while relaxing in the warmth of the midnight sun. The quaint lobby is decorated with Alaskan art and a gift kiosk displays Native arts and crafts.

You'll enjoy a wide variety of hotel amenities during your stay, starting with a fresh and unforgettable breakfast buffet, featuring fresh blueberry buttermilk pancakes.
The Bridgewater Hotel offers complimentary wireless Internet access (no need for cables or dataports) and a lobby Internet kiosk.
Enjoy complimentary coffee and the newspaper in the lobby each morning. Complimentary parking is available.

To help you get the most from your Fairbanks vacation, Fountainhead Hotels provides a complimentary transit service to all hotel guests during the summer season. The transit follows an around-town route with scheduled stops at Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, University of Alaska Museum of the North, Pioneer Park, and downtown.

Complimentary shuttle service is provided between the airport and Alaska Railroad depot (for non-tour group guests only).

In your Bridgewater guestroom lodging, you'll find everything you need to look and feel your best, including quality bath products, a hair dryer, and iron and ironing board (upon request). Relax and leaf through a complimentary booklet, "Staying Alive in the Arctic," filled with fun facts, trivia and games for everyone.

For your comfort, each guestroom is equipped with air conditioning, cable TV, and complimentary tea and gourmet coffee with coffeemaker. At your request, we'll give you a wake-up call to view the Northern Lights during late August. The Bridgewater Hotel is a smoke-free environment.
