Like almost everyone here, we stayed at the Westmark as part of a Holland America Line cruise tour, in our case after disembarking from an 8-hour train ride from Denali. We were feeling somewhat whipped, naturally and looking forward to a night of rest before having to shove off by 7:30 the next morning. The hotel and the room was obviously past its better days and in need of some major renovation.
The room itself was clean enough, all things considered, and the bed was comfortable and there were decent chairs in the room for sitting around in the evening (a major consideration in my world). Like others we found the street noise very noticeable which limited the appeal of keeping the balcony door sliders open. Thankfully, the white noise provided by the room's ac/fan was enough to mask most of the sound as we tried to get to sleep.
Coming down to grab something quick the next morning the best we could do was grab a none-too-fresh bagel and coffee. The young man who worked the coffee area, however, was very accommodating and customer-friendly. Overall, the Westmark in Anchorage is a decent place to stay for a night, but without a major makeover I wouldn't pick it of my own accord, especially for a multi-night stay.
