Located in Alaska's Denali National Park, the Ridge View Hotel is a 99-room extension to the existing McKinley Chalets Resort. The addition embraces the rugged beauty of its surroundings to create a nostalgic atmosphere that references vintage national park lodges. The addition includes a variety of junior suites and outdoor sitting areas clad in rough-hewn wood. Interiors deliver campy vibes with rough-hewn torched wood, wall covered in the park map, moose-head coat hooks, and custom-made Pendleton blankets. To remind guests they're in The Last Frontier, expansive glazing and terraces provide views of the pristine landscape and the neighboring Mount Healy.
