Malai was wonderful and appreciate so was everyone there. We had 3 cancelled flights so it was nice to be able to stay in a friendly hotel and get us back again in the early morning hours to. Catch another flight

If you’re coming into Alaska from the lower 48, and you need to spend one night in Anchorage before flying on to another city—or distant village, as I did—this hotel is a reasonable option. It’s close to the airport. So if you’re exhausted after getting up before dawn to catch your flight, you won’t have to spend much time getting... More

After seeing much of what Downtown Anchorage had to offer, it was a nice change of pace to stay at the Lakefront. It's an interesting property that has a lot going for it. We liked the food, we loved the extremely comfortable bed, and we really appreciated the friendly service. (Thank you Bethany at the Front Desk for your kindness,... More

The hotel was super crowded when I arrived with several large groups but the property is huge. I'm not sure what some of the other reviewers were referencing this is newly updated hotel with great beds/pillows/bathrooms. It takes forever to walk through the halls to your room but the views from the bar and restaurant are worth the walk downstairs.... More

My daughter and I spent three nights here before and after a week long journey fishing and exploring. Desk, bell and bar staff were great, especially my man Rudy. Rims were spacious, well appointed and very clean. Food and drinks were above average quality with prices fitting Alaska. The 24 hour shuttle service was great given our 1:30 am flight... More

I have been a guest at The Lakefront (formerly known as the Millennium) for the past twelve years during fishing trips taken by my friends and my wife. We have never been disappointed with any aspect of our stay. Over the winter the hotel completed extensive renovations and we have been very pleased with the "freshening up." We have consistently...

We stayed here two nights upon arrival in Anchorage. The suite we had was very nice. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was good. But the best part is sitting outside looking at Lake Hood and watching the float planes take off and land while having a cocktail or meal. So relaxing. Best part if our stay.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at The Lakefront Anchorage. We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay. We agree - the best part of our location is the location next to Lake Hood - the world's largest float plane base. Watching the float planes take off and land is truly a unique Alaskan... More

I was wary before our visit, as our Alaska Railroad tour brought us to the Lakefront 3 separate times. It was my favorite hotel in Alaska! The location cannot be beat for access to the airport. My husband is a recreational pilot and loved watching the float planes on the lake. The rooms were clean and modern, while they kept... More

We stayed at the Lakefront Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our room and the facility. Our room had recently been renovated and was done right. (Sometimes renovations seem to cut corners and one can easily tell it was a reno.) We ate at the outside deck restaurant and enjoyed the food and spirits. Watching the float planes land and take off... More

Thank you for writing such a great review of your recent stay at The Lakefront Anchorage. We are thrilled our remodel turned out so well and love to hear what our guests thought of it as well.

I sat at the bar and the bartender was on his phone most of the time. When he wasn't on his phone he was talking to another customer about a woman. He was speaking very derogatory. I left in disgust. I can't remember the bartenders name (he was chubby, had tattoos and was probably 40). On a good note, I... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your service while at The Fancy Moose Bar. I'm sorry your service was less then excellent. Our customers are extremely important to us and if the service wasn't up to a high level, we will look into it and discuss it with each and every one of our bartenders.... More
