This is a very nice, newer hotel in midtown Anchorage, right near the University and major medical center. For that reason I don't love the location for my purposes, but if you need to be there for either of those reasons - perfect! There is new construction going up nearby and I didn't hear a lot of it, but I... More

This is a completely comfortable hotel near UAA and the hospitals, away from downtown. The room was clean and comfortable, and the property was otherwise good. The weakest point would probably be the breakfast, which was mediocre and the strongest would be the access to the University Lake walking trail, a loop around a small lake right outside the door....

Very clean nice hotel. Good lobby/waiting areas, meal service area, commissary, etc. The room appeared new/newly redone with a modern style - very nice design. The hotel will send a shuttle to the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport which is about a 15 minute commute.

Hôtel was very modern and clean. Large room size with sitting area and work station. The free Breakfast was by far the most extensive we have had at a hôtel. Well Worth the money. Not à lot in close proximity as it Is by the university and hospital. Free shuttle to airport.

This is an excellent property. It is conveniently located near Anchorage University, although nothing is within walking distance and you will need a car.. The lobby is large and inviting. The staff is friendly and helpful. My room was very large, clean, and quiet, with a comfortable king-size bed, flat-screen TV, and work desk. The bathroom was spacious, clean, and... More

This is a University hospital hotel for sure. Off the beaten path...near the hospital. We saw a lot of sick people (children) staying there. Sad but makes you grateful. The hotel is modern and clean. The rooms are great with a couch and added work desk. The bed was not the best... But ok. That's the reason for 4 vs... More

This is a new hotel in the university precinct, but a long, long way from downtown Anchorage, with nothing else in the area for food. Fortunately they have just started serving a limited menu dinner in the hotel. There is a hotel shuttle to downtown, but it only goes every hour. There seemed to be no other forms of transport...
