A little away from downtown but nicely located on the Chena river which was decidedly browner than the gacier fed rivers. Good size room but bathroom basic. Restaurants good except for Edgeview - vegetables dried out and tried to serve main before we had finished entrée. Riverside deck great for a drink and casual feed. All in all pretty good.

Since we are foreigners flying out of Canada we had to go through regular airport security then through customs. The whole process wasn't bad actually and we made it through both in …
