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.

We stayed for just one night, but we could stay more if necessary. Nice and clean room with enough space for our family , good Internet conection. Maybe the breskfast area could be a little big, but it's ok.

This is where you want to stay in Anchorage, no questions asked. Most of the city is just a bit run down, but the area near UAA and APU is pretty nice. The SpringHill Suites is situated about 15 seconds away from APU and 30 seconds from UAA. If you wanted, you could walk to each campus which is much... More

There were 5 of us traveling so having a suite with two queen beds and a sofa sleeper was the perfect setup. The sofa sleeper was separated by a glass panel which was also the perfect setup as I am an early riser and was able to get started with my morning routine without waking the others. My only complaint... More

We stayed here for two nights this July. This is a nice, contemporary hotel that is away from the busy downtown area but close to lots of things to see and do. You feel like you are in the mountains in the middle of nature, not in a big city. The queen room was nice - it had a sitting... More

We made our reservation about 6 months in advance as this was for a family wedding during peak season.
