I have tried the other Anchorage Marriott properties on previous trips, so I figured to continue. This is a newer RI design, not the older clump of buildings, giving a little more of a feeling of security. There is no direct access to rooms from outside. The office/reception looks a little like a northern lodge from the outside (a log over the front door), but that is about the only distinctive touch. It has a decent sized indoor pool area and very small exercise room - only 3 cardio devices.
I was again working while up there, so a desk area and free internet were greatly appreciated. There seemed to be a number of people staying here that worked at the adjacent large buildings, as well as hospital patients. It seems to be the closest hotel to Providence Hospital and the UAA campus and has free shuttle service in the area and to the airport.
Good quality, but reduced Marriott points. The only place left to try here is the Fairfield.
