I spent four nights here in August with my husband and two children after extensive research on various lodging possibilities. The problem in Anchorage (and most of Alaska in the summer) is that everything is twice as expensive, at least, as it should be. And Anchorage doesn't have a lot of great places to stay, particularly for families. Overall I think it wasn't a bad choice. The staff is great, the location a short walk to everything interesting in downtown Anchorage, and there is easy access to biking trails. We walked downtown at least once a day, sometimes twice. I likes the extra room the suites provided, and the free breakfast was at least economical (although two mornings a cruise ship group crowded the area). The pool area was extremely depressing- dank and gloomy, in my opinion, but my kids loved it. The rest of the hotel was fairly budget, but for the most part clean. To be honest, were this Hampton Inn anywhere else, I would give it a very harsh review, but again, for Alaska, it wasn't bad. I think, including a work-related discount, we paid $230/night. Ouch.
