Needs a big renovation. Restaurant is limited but charges the same high prices as the good places in Anchorage. Small lobby area. Close enough to everything. Anchorage is a wonderful time if you do your research. Suggest you visit the visitor center and take the trolley car tour.

An adequate hotel, no frills, attentive security staff on hand. After walking around a bit we popped back into the hotel after being confronted by a panhandler. He followed me , my husband followed him with security close behind. Not the best start to our one night stay. Construction on the street below kept us up for hours as daylight... More

My husband and I stayed at the Westmark on a short weekend getaway. Because we went before the main tourist season started we were able to get a really great deal on a junior suite ($337 total for two nights). I was pleased with my interactions with the staff before we even arrived. We had booked about four months early,... More

A comfortable hotel close to the city center, but dating and in need of a face lift. Walking distance to the town center, restaurants and attractions. Clean and acceptable facilities onsite. Happy to stay there again.
