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.

This is one of the nicer hotels in Anchorage. Clean comfortable rooms. We stayed in a king suite with a sofa bed. It was roomy enough for 3 adults. Our room had a sink and commode in one room, and a nice shower in a separate area.Check in and out was on the slow side. This was the only negative... More

Quiet, convenient, comfortable, and so much more than we were expecting for our 1 night layover in Anchorage before driving down to Seward for a few days. I hope all of our lodging on this first trip to Alaska is as nice. We arrived about midnight and were quickly checked in. Delighted to find our room so spacious, clean, and... More

We stayed here for 3 days before heading to Homer..could of stayed here the whole 10 days. Very relaxing and clean. The breakfast was great as well as friendly staff. The lake behind the hotel was the best part of the whole stay. In Anchorage but feels like your out in the middle of novwhere. Will come back next year.
