“This Is A Westmark?”
Reviewed June 7, 2008

Our forced stay at the Westmark was part of the land package after a cruise booked with Holland America Line. We were excited to be in Anchorage but when we got to our room, across from the cleaning teams headquarters, we were so disappointed. The noise from the workers lasted well into after dinner time. The room had unusual oders that we couldn't place because there were so many different ones. The sliding door to the outside was rusted shut, we managed to get it opened a bit then we couldn't get it closed using extreme force. The outside noise from downtotown celebrations was provided by constant revvving Harley's going up and down the adjacent streets until 1 AM. The room next door was a high school graduation party that went on until we passed out asleep from exhaustion. We were so glad when the morning arrived and we could leave. Of course it was silent by then. If you get a good price, it is in a good location but insist on a room above the 12th floor if you stay there. Friends stayed that high up and had none of our encounters.

The price was right $79 a night, so one could be a bit forgiving.

Be careful when showering if you are sensitive to temps. Every time during our 6 night stay, even thou I set the water temp prior to entering the shower it would very suddenly change from cold to almost scalding during my shower.

Constant noise from outside thru the balcony sliding door that did not close tightly.

Not much view on the 4th floor, room 410, so ask for a room higher up to get a view & hopefully less noise.

Bartender, front desk, bellman were all wonderful! Very helpful.

Breakfast & lunch ok, but dinner was not good. We tried several other places within walking distance that were better.

Bed was hard, Lots of pillows.
No fridge or microwave, Coffee pot in the room.
In room Wi-Fi was very nice & easy to use.
