Stayed here for one night on our way to a Holland American Alaskan cruise. Thankfully I had read on Trip Advisor not to expect anything great. That was an understatement!!! This place is old and dingy, my sheets even had rips in them. It is in such dire need of an update. I only got through it as I knew... More

I found the whole city of Anchorage not on my favorites list. The Westmark had spacious rooms and we had a great view of Cook inlet, but the room had a different configuration and the furniture was very old. Everything about this hotel could use a remodel and facelift. But the waiters and hotel staff were friendly and accommodating for... More

This hotel has seen its best days and seems to be mostly used by cruise line passengers before or after their Alaska cruise. Anchorage is a small city where ‘everything’ is within walking distance. So the high score for location is meaningless. The rooms have an iron, ironing board and coffee maker but no fridge or safe. The latter probably... More

This is the second time we've stayed at this property as part of a Holland America cruise trip. The first time in 2011, we were pretty disappointed as the room was small and the property clearly needed updating. It didn't help that we'd stayed at Hotel Alyeska (only 5 star hotel in Alaska) the two nights before, so this was... More

This hotel was part of our land tour with Holland America. We came in two days earlier to see Anchorage before our tour started. Going in, we knew there were bad reviews on the hotel. However, rather than changing hotels we decided to just stay at the same hotel as the land tour. I had requested a high floor with... More

We stayed in room 610 which was a corner room on the sixth floor. Our greeting wasn't overly friendly but was okay. Not like we'd been use to at other places we'd stayed at during our trip through Alaska. The hotel itself looked bit tired and the room was the same. It was clean and a good size with good... More

We stayed in three Alaska hotels in our land tour - all of them owned by Holland America. This was the worst of the bunch. Granted, we didn't get off to a good start. Our train into Anchorage was filled with people ready to head for the hotel, and the buses took off almost in unison. Therefore, there was a... More

Stayed here as part of Holland America Cruise. This was the land portion. Room was in need of major redo. Rugs stained and dirty, old pillows, bathroom clean but outdated. Lobby small for the busloads of people that are waiting in the morning. We were in the hallway because it was misting outside.

My husband and I stayed here in late May. The hotel is nice and accommodating, a little hard to find, so be on the look out when using your GPS. We had a situation upon arrival, seems my travel agent did not book this hotel. My fault to begin with, I booked this hotel, but with the wrong dates, realizing... More
