The hotel was clean and very well-kept. We were very impressed with the professionalism of the staff that we interacted with. The only slight downside was that the room did not have a tub (I though I remembered it saying shower-tub combo) and our TV had some issues (the remote would turn the TV on but not off). However, the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Springhill Suites for two nights prior to flying out for our fishing trip to Kodiak. We found that this very nice hotel, was perfect for all our needs. It is near the University of Alaska, and the Providence Medical Center, so you definitely need a car if you plan on doing any tourist... More

The Springhill Suites Anchorage University Lake is a very nice property near the University and sits on the University Lake. Request a South side (Lake) view on the top floor. We stayed at this property for a total of four nights. The property was well kept and looked relatively new. The staff was very professional and helpful in the recommendation... More

We stayed here for a 5 day business trip and were very favorably impressed with the amenities and staff. The breakfast choices were outstanding, shuttle service very helpful (manager even OK'd trips that were not on their regular route), access to the walking trail was immediately out the back door, and the suites were large and nicely appointed with separate...

Stayed here one night while finishing off a cruise. It is quite a hike from downtown; they offer a shuttle which is ok, but sometimes when you phone for a ride from downtown, the wait can be up to 45 minutes. The hotel was quite accommodating, however, since our flight did not leave until after 11 the next night. They... More

This is a very modern, clean and spacious hotel. All rooms are suites, so have a fold out sofa as extra bedding and the toilet is separate from the shower. Beds are very comfy and the included breakfast was great, with a variety of options to choose from. Taxi to downtown was $17 so not the closest, but as we... More

We stayed in this suit after we got off the cruise ship. We picked this one because of the location, quite than the downtown one. The room is very nice and clean, everything seems quite new. My whole family loved it. The only negative was that the breakfast crew close the room at 8:50am even though it was supposedly open... More

For folks who need the extra touch not found at "value" hotels, this is an excellent choice, Very clean, large rooms with all the expected amenities. A bit pricey - but Anchorage is that way in the summer. Location is good if you have business on the east side of town, at University or hospitals. They do have a shuttle,... More

Stayed for 5 nights. Rooms were clean and comfortable. This was the second time we had stayed here and we were not disappointed. Very helpful staff, great breakfast, nice outdoor fire pit. We have stayed at other Anchorage hotels and this soars above them.
