Getting to the Train Station
Transportation to and from the train depot is readily available in most cities, particularly in Anchorage and Fairbanks. In both Anchorage and Fairbanks ride sharing and taxi services are available city wide.
In Anchorage many hotels offer transportation to and from the train station, as well as airport transfers. The Comfort Inn, SpringHill Suites, Residence Inn, and Fairfield Inn and Suites all offer transportation to the Alaska Railroad Depot. If you prefer a hotel near the airport that also offers transportation to the rail depot, check out the Lakefront Anchorage Hotel. Give us a call if we can help you book a room.
In Fairbanks if you’re looking for something along the Chena River near the airport, and that also offers transportation to the rail depot, you can’t go wrong with either the Fairbanks Rivers Edge Resort, or the Pikes Waterfront Lodge.
In the smaller more remote towns along the rail system, transportation is a little more limited. In Talkeetna, both the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, and the McKinley Princess lodge offer transfers to the train depot. In Seward the Seward Windsong Lodge is a great hotel offering transfers to and from the train station. If you are looking for a hotel within walking distance of the Seward train depot, the Harbor 360 Hotel, Gateway Hotel, and the Breeze Inn are great options. Taxi service is fairly limited in the small communities of Seward and Talkeetna.
If your visit takes you to Denali National Park you will find that most hotels offer excellent service to and from the Denali Park train depot. There is no public transportation in Denali, and very limited taxi service, so guests rely mostly on their hotel or lodge for transportation around the park entrance area. Some of our favorites properties include; the Grande Denali Lodge, Denali Bluffs Hotel, Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge, and the Lodge at Denali Village.
In addition to rail and motorcoach services, we are happy to assist you with booking other travel services such as tours, cruises and hotels… including any listed on this page.
