The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly, and the service is great! Convenient location. 10/10 would stay again. Perfect for Valentine's Day weekend! :) (And letting me borrow a phone charger was very nice.)

I stayed at the Westmark for a business conference. I was travelling alone, and I arrived late one night and had to park around the side of the building where there was less foot traffic. As I was parking the car a couple of men walked from the public transit station across the street, through the parking lot, to the... More

Dear 217c The safety of our guests is of paramount importance to us, being right in the heart of downtown Anchorage does mean that there sometimes can be a few undesirable people around and that is why all of our entance's and exits are under camara and that our security patrols the Hotel constantly, we are so glad you choose...

I arrived in Anchorage at about 6am and got to the hotel before 7am. The front desk manager was very helpful and allowed me to check in early with no extra charge. The rooms were nice and clean and all of the staff was very friendly. I would definitely stay at the Westmark the next time I'm in Anchorage.

We absolutely loved your helpful, welcoming staff. Tony, Mary, Haley, carol (did we miss anyone?) all exceeded our expectations. While the hotel isn't the newest, the staff make up for any shortfalls. The lobby with its roaring fire was cosy, room good size, good local advice given. We would definitely stay again!!

Anchorage is a big town so finding a hotel that is has extra security and super clean rooms was a plus! The staff was great, as I waited for my cab the clerk and I had a conversation. The Westmark is right in downtown so, there are many things to do, worth the extra $$ to stay here. I've been... More

We stayed at the Westmark in Anchorage while attending a conference. It was wonderful. We stayed on the 14th floor in a newly renovated room. The room was nicely decorated and very clean. The fitness center was convenient, and we didn't have to wait for the machines. All staff were courteous and always willing to help us with directions, attractions,... More

Having heard that Anchorage was pretty rough, we were pleasantly surprised. Most aspects of the hotel met or exceeded our expectations - a very good room, good service, excellent location for touring the town and very good meals and service at the restaurant. The only reservation is that the restaurant is hardly big enough for such a large hotel, and... More

Good Locations for Westmark Hotels seems to run true to a theme! This location is perfect for Anchorage visitors whether for business or for cultural events. We choose Westmark mostly because they have union employees. The service at this hotel is awesome even when they are booked, as they usually are. The parking is a bit dicey and expensive at... More
