Lonely Planet review
Recently rebuilt a quarter of a mile to the east in the Browerville neighborhood, the Top of the World still lives up to its name (it’s the northernmost hotel in North America), but post the move it’s also surprisingly plush with large airy communal spaces, topical arctic mosaics, boutique-style rooms and the best restaurant in Barrow – by far.
The catch? Like most things in Barrow, it’s mega-expensive.
Our independent authors have visited Top of the World Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Barrow.
