The resort itself, the staff, our experience throughout our 4 night stay!
Nothing! Love everything about Wedgewood!
Apartment very big and spacious, with balcony. We got what we requested when booking. Staff is helpful. We arrived passed midnight, call hotel and the shuttle comes around 15-20 mins. The driver is very nice, he let us alight at reception to collect key and then drive us to our block (many blocks within the resort, too far to walk in thick snow and -22°C), he even help us to carry our many luggage by staircase to 3rd floor without our request! Kitchen is well equipped, big fridge, oven, microwave, salt and pepper, kitchen towels, table cloth, dish washing detergent, bowls and plates, big fork, small spoon, but don't find scissors. It would be better if there is dish washer. There are big Walmart, Fred Meyer (abt 7-10 mins drive). Nice to walk around the small lake nearby, though lake already covered with snow, but we saw beautiful sunset. Saw a fox in car park as I push open the ground floor door, the fox look at me and quickly run away. Saw a squirrel on the tree next to our balcony, coming to eat berries from one of the tree. Saw also moose footprint on snow, but never have a chance to see one. We contact Alaska Wildlife Guide upon our arrival at Fairbanks and they managed to arrange within hours for next day onwards to go for Aurora tour, dog sledding, snow mobile, ice fishing, and taxi transport to and fro hotel and North Poles(with extra fee), very good service. Very nice food at Thai House, we had dinner and lunch there (lunch price is cheaper although food is same). The Bowl Company is worth a visit, they can custom made wording by laser on your chosen bowl. The resort has a vintage car museum, we missed to visit (open Sunday and Wednesday) but managed to buy a mini vintage car at the hotel reception.
Location, need car to travel around. There are Blue and Red line public bus available (www.macstransit.com) but the interval time range from 15 mins to 1 hour 15 mins. We have to call for Uber to travel around as we have never drive in winter snow conditions and left driving. We stayed for 5 nights, request to be alert when there is Aurora but never receive any call.
The maid service was different for a daily rate vs a weekly rate. I thought it was silly.
Not using the restaurant facilities
I booked one night and after I enter the room, I decided to extend two nights because the suite is so nice. Very big with good facilities. Not far away from center but quiet area in nature. Good value for money! Friendly staff!
