I had never heard of this hotel before we stayed here-we booked it because it was close to downtown, and there were so few other options. As we walked in my children started murmuring about how "fancy" it looked-" definitely not the chain hotels they're accustomed to. While we were there I spent a lot of time admiring the numerous paintings and the fittings in the lobby area and restaurant. The view from our room over the city towards the mountains inland was breathtaking. As I had hoped the location was great. There's lots of eating placed within a few blocks, including a mall, and the Coast trail is just 2 blocks away. It's almost next door to Pablo's bike rental, which is itself a big draw.

Was told to come here to stay for our first trip to Anchorage so we gave it a try. It was nothing special as it is downtown and the first strike was the $$ to just park the car, ridiculous. The rooms were ok a bit outdated but comfortable and clean and the view was outstanding which made it better. There is no free breakfast as everything in the dining was a charge so that was also another strike. The gyms are split between men and women's gym which I found interesting as my husband and I enjoy working out together and help each other, so I was not happy with that either. We did go to the top restaurant and have a cocktail to enjoy the view and that was nice. Overall it was nothing special and would not return. We ended up in a B and B down the road later that made us feel very special and personal.

Still the grande dame of Anchorage hotels, the Cook remains the place to stay. Because of the snow and Ice I spent more time inside than out during a four day conference stay. The room was spacious and had a view of both downtown and Denali on the sunny days. Staff was friendly and professional as always and the food at Fletchers was excellent.

Attended for an award night, left after 2 minutes because noone, not even hotel staff, were following the event's stated COVID policy-masks were not worn or worn improperly (ie over chin), social distancing was not taking place, and the event was very crowded for a room of that size. The hotel was also not following the municipality's COVID policy. Disappointing given Alaska has the highest COVID rate per capita in the US and our hospitals are dangerously full.
