Located near the University of Alaska, the hotel is not on a main road, and as a result does not have the road noise of other Anchorage hotels. Rooms are nice, and there is plenty of room for a couple to enjoy. There is a lake on the back side of the hotel, and the view is very nice. This... More

I live in Fairbanks, Alaska and I have stayed in this hotel a few times while visiting family in Anchorage. I like that it is in a quiet location and off the main streets but still in a pretty central area of town. The location is perfect if you are in Anchorage for UAA event or a Dr. visit at... More

Regardless of the season, I find the SpringHill Suites in Anchorage a peaceful and relaxing place while in Anchorage. Easy access to the University, airport and less then 15 minute drive to downtown. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The whole place is clean and well maintained. And - right outside the door is the lake!

Dear Mark W, Thank you for the great review and feedback regarding your stay with us. As you experienced, we're tucked away in the trees close to the lake yet still very accessible to the major points around town. Not sure if you're aware, but our shuttle operates to downtown as well, in case you don't want to drive! Thank... More

This is a great hotel. It is an easy drive to all areas of Anchorage. The hotel is super clean, rooms are large and beds are comfortable. The room was a little hot. Although, we had the heat control off, and the window open it was still 75. I liked the idea of a separate room for shower/sink and toilet/sink.... More

With a very small exception, I always stay at Marriott properties. And this was no exception. Have stayed at the Marriotts downtown and paid almost twice over what Springhill costs. I will stay here from now on. Confortable beds, quiet rooms (but get one away from the stairs) and the oatmeal for breakas was great! Friendly staff. What else could... More

While the breakfast doesn't come close to Marriott's Residence this hotel was nearly perfect. Clean, over the top service and great location. The staff from the front desk to the housekeepers was very friendly and extremely helpful.

When you think about a hotel, you want it to have 3 key things: 1. Quiet, comfortable room. 2. Friendly staff. 3. Perks, such as a continental breakfast. When a property like this one has all 3, and in spades, you gotta give it 5 stars. The property is pretty much brand spanking new. If you are visiting the University... More

The location of this hotel is excellent if you don’t need to be by the airport or right downtown. Even so, it's an easy drive to both, only about 15-20 min, there's a free shuttle, and it's safer, quieter, and more scenic on this side of town. It's on the east end of the UAA campus, on a lake where... More

We were there to have outpatient surgery at a location down the street. The rooms and lobby are gorgeous and the complimentary breakfast was nice. The staff was friendy and helpful.

We enjoyed our overnight stay at the University Lake Springhill Suites. Very friendly staff, clean and quiet; the bed was comfortable. Central location away from traffic and noise. We were not up in time for breakfast, but were told there is a complimentary continental breakfast until 9:30. Seems like it should be a little bit later on weekends.
