As many others have said, this place is in need of serious attention. It is battered and dated in all areas including the rooms. The small as we entered the room was overwhelming: it seems the carpet had just been cleaned and was still wet and the smell of freshner strong. Furniture was dated and battered. The bathroom was serviceable... More

The hotel which is owned by Holland America is used mainly by cruise land tour guests. It's okay for an evening but needs updating and modernization. The staff were very nice and the hotel location is convenient for shops and restaurants. Not sure if I would stay there if traveling on my own.

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about this hotel after reading many reviews. However, we were pleasantly surprised at the Westmark Anchorage. We, too, stayed here as part of our Land and Sea Journey through Holland America. Our bus pulled up to the hotel. A HAL representative quickly passed out packets of information containing our room keys.... More

Room felt dirty - room looked dirty - sliding glass door was broken - they had installed a cheap chain lock to use. TV remote had part of the back missing. Couldn't get the TV off the preset station. Sheets were itchy - not the nice, clean cotton linen sheets. Elevator was dated and rocked back and forth to our... More

Nice view.. Smaller room. Could easily hear a lot of street noise below. If you are a tour bus guest you have to enter and exit through the back door.Just an ordinary hotel room. Hotel staff were friendly.

The post-cruise hotels are HAL owned so why isn't the quality the same as the ships? Why aren't you given the same level of standard you book on the cruise. This hotel is dirty, the sheets weren't cleaned and the area is scary. A homeless man came and sat in reception last night when we came back from dinner (a... More

Time to upgrade this hotel, HAL. The main floor is adequate, including the restaurant. The hallways are confusing between the HAL entrance/desk, and the regular entrance/desk. We were on the second floor. When we stepped out of the elevator the entire second floor smelled like spaghetti. The employee break room is on this floor, with only a curtain separating it... More

We stayed here as part of a Holland America Line cruise. The cruise was wonderful! Unfortunately, this hotel was the first night of the land portion of our tour. I think HAL owns this hotel. The street roar made us think we were trying to sleep while attending the Indy 500!! We tried closing the balcony door, but it was... More

The hotel was out of date and smelled like moldy socks. It was booked for us through Holland America Cruise Line and was the most disappointing part of the entire trip. The room was a step- down from the ship.

We visited this hotel as a part of a Holland America Cruise. I'll have to say that downtown Anchorage in general was dirty and this hotel certainly matched the decor. The room was old, dingy, and the carpet looked liked someone's garage floor. The whole place was awful. Would not recommend it. The staff was unresponsive at best.
