The Westmark Anchorage is a great hotel with very good rates, and an awesome staff! Both the front desk and the bellman went out of their way to help me after I missed my flight one evening. Great location downtown near many good restaurants and popular bars! Would definitely stay there again in the future!

Another good hotel in the Westmark chain although my observation of the staff is that either they don't have enough assignments to keep them busy or they are just overstaffed. Three employees just standing around in the lobby wandering from place to place and it seemed that they were a little miffed that we had to be in the lobby... More

We stayed one night at this hotel after our Alaskan Cruise and Denali vacation. What a major disappointment spending our last day of our trip at this hotel. Rooms appear clean but hotel is outdated and both rooms and hallways have a musty smell. This was noticed by other guests also. The highlight was the next morning when we were... More

Our room and the hotel were very clean. The front desk staff and night manager at the hotel were wonderful. Great location for downtown activities and shopping. The beds were comfortable, but the heater was kind of loud when it came on. There wasn't a lot of noise from other visitors or outside traffic, which is unusual for being downtown.... More

The lobby furniture had holes in it and the soft cushions were so soft that your knees were raised above your hips. The wooden room furniture was scared. The carpets were dirty and the windows let in a lot of road noise. The employees were nice and tried to be helpful but weren't familiar with the smaller area shops. There... More

Westmark is ideally located in the heart of downtown Anchorage -- lots of restaurants, shops and state/federal offices within easy walking distance. As this was an afternoon/evening stopover for us, Westmark's proximity (2 blocks) to the one-hour city tour Trolley stop proved very convenient (see separate review). Our room on the 11th floor was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. The... More

- No effort in accommodating basic requests: The front desk seemed incredibly bothered by any questions I had. The attitude was very off-putting from day one and throughout the four days I stayed here. - No on-site microwave or availability of a basic attempt to provide a solution for food prep. Front desk sounded appalled that I expected such services.... More
