We stayed at the Westmark. Room was spacious with two double beds as well as a small table and two chairs and a desk and chair. Staff are very helpful. They have a bar which is nice and we ate at their restaurant for breakfast as well as dinner and we couldn't fault anything. We would stay here again if... More

We checked into this property as part of our land package with Princess. The room appeared to be somewhat clean, however the longer we stayed, the more we noticed about the room. We had to get up early, and leave the room because it was so musty smelling we couldn't stay. The rooms are very dated, the bedding is old... More

Location is premier for activities, restaurants, and asccess. We went two blocks away and rente bikes for the Coastal Trail ride. Always see moos there and, remarkably, an occasion bear. Staff is always friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised by the in-house cafe for fast, friendly service, good coffee, and respectable menu.

The staff is nice and helpful, but the hotel needs a re-do . Location is good but this is an old tired hotel Hotel Rooms are pricey in Anchorage and so is food. The "beautiful people" are down the street at the Capt. Cook Hotel. If you can , go there.

Well appointed, very dark curtains for summer, downtown. Restaurants nearby within walking distance. Balcony for view. Suggest trying for a north side view to see Denali on a clear day. Restaurant good for breakfast!

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.

We have been traveling with Holland American for years and this last hotel that they put us in is not up to their standards.. The furniture is old and worn and the property is tacky looking. We were supposed to get a room for 3 people. When we arrived there were 2 double beds. My elderly parents could not sleep... More

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
