After a long journey to be in Anchorage, I really preferred to spend the night there more than start driving immediately.
200$ seemed to be a kind of standard rates in Anchorage, weekends/weekdays, high/low season, so I just had to choose the hotel disregarding the rate issue.
I didn't want to start a wilderness trip in a city hotel, so I chose an hotel located outside downtown.
This Springhill suites seemed, and it has been, a good choice.
Rooms were nice, new (or remodeled) with all the amenities needed.
Location was perfect, just on the shore of a small lake with a trail all around the lake itself (about 1 mile). Perfect for a walk or a run (that I did).
Everything has been all right.
Rate quite high for the hotel, but as I said this was a standard.
I'd suggest it if you have to sleep in Anchorage because tired from a long flight or if you want to set a base camp for hiking in the area (nice hiking options seemed to be quite close to the city), but keep in mind that Anchorage by itself doesn't offer anything to see, so I don't suggest to spend the night just for visiting it.
