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. Had we been staying there because of the nearby Tim McGraw concert, I am sure that we would have been perfectly happy. However, because we were staying in suite... More

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.

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!

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
