During this stay I had my wife, two young kids, and mother -- all of us in the same room. We were comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the SpringHill Suites (University) in Anchorage. The location is great. The employees at the hotel are wonderful, and the property provides exactly what it should for a hotel of this price... More

Stayed two nights before heading to Fairbanks on business. Quiet, serene setting -- easy to get around Anchorage from this spot. Rooms are modern, comfortable, large, and quiet. The hotel had been suggested to me and I was not disappointed. Very helpful staff, great breakfast, nice outdoor fire pit, outdoor path to walk around lake. Highly recommended!

Our family has stayed here 3 times for sporting events. It is modern & comfortable with large rooms that work great for those traveling with kids. The frig and microwave are helpful and the complimentary breakfast is well stocked with plenty of choices. Each time our room has been immaculate- housekeeping is doing a great job.

Nice, stylish and cosy hotel, pretty new and well maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff at the reception. Big indoor pool and yakuzee. Not in the city centre of Anchorage-a little out of touch with the city-but in a quiet area, close to the university. Free parking, free WiFi. Loved the breakfast buffet with many fresh fruit variations, eggs, bacon,... More

The updates to Springhill Suites are well done! Sliders to the bathroom and toilet areas make a lot of sense. The location was nice, downtown Anchorage was 10+ minutes and that was close enough for me. Access to Seward and Glenn highways was less then 10 minutes. There is a dog park / hiking area just behind the hotel that... More

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.

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
