The Captain Cook was fantastic in every way -- lots of old-style elegance and nautical character that you wouldn't find in a chain (be sure to check out the grandfather clock on the main level...it's a stunner!), delicious food (especially at the Crow's Nest on the top floor), excellent service, beautiful and spacious yet cozy rooms and hallways decked out in warm golds and bronzes, gorgeous views of the Chugach Mountains over the city from the windows (particularly at sunset), and impossibly comfortable beds. We were even surprised with a complimentary upgrade to a huge 2-room suite!
Another wonderful aspect of the hotel was its location; we were able to walk to almost every single place on our Anchorage hit list -- the art museum, the coastal trail, and several different shops and restaurants -- and the rail station and bus stop were also within easy reach. Its location in town was safe, clean, and peppered with galleries. We could not have chosen a better "base camp" for our urban excursions!
The price tag was a hefty one to be sure, but well worth every penny -- if funds permitted, I would happily do it all over again.
