The hotel is top notch, with very nice rooms and a great bed. It was the biggest small room I've ever been in. It was laid out quite well to make it feel larger than it really is. The staff was very friendly and wanted to insure you enjoyed your stay with them.

A bit far from downtown and although they have a shuttle, it usually is 1 shuttle so you have to wait and reserve in advance. The front desk during our check in was not very helpful and friendly. Free wifi and breakfast included. Not a lot of dining options close by

The hotel is a modern property with stylishly designed functional rooms. Check-in was efficient. The breakfast buffet was very good. The location beside the university is secluded but this is not a problem if you have a car since it is not difficult to get around Anchorage.

It appears that this is a newer construction area (but you did not hear any construction noise). It is quite close to the University, Providence Hospital and the Native Alaska Hospital. The hotel itself is overall the usual Spring Hill (the basic room layout as found elsewhere and basic amenities found in other Spring Hills). The lobby is very nice... More

Nice location by University of Alaska on lake, next to dog park. We stayed at Spring Hill Suites after flying in to Anchorage for our vacation to Alaska. It has a great breakfast and a bit more secluded than others near airport, but still in town.

The hotel is very clean, modern, and is in a good location. There is a lot of variety for breakfast and the staff is very nice and polite. The rooms are also very clean and spacious and the hotel is in a quiet place with lots of trees.

This was a great hotel to stay in for a night. It was clean, service was good, and a good quality breakfast included. Rooms have comfy beds and plenty of space for a couple. We highly enjoyed the nature trail right behind the hotel. It is probably a little over a mile and goes all the way around the lake.... More
