Stayed here on a 2 day business trip. The hotel is clean and centrally situated, although the large rooms and reception area look a bit tired and old. The best thing about it is the wonderful staff who are welcoming and go out of their way to take care of guests' needs, which in my case was a late night... More

Best Hotel in Anchorage. Absolutely stunning views. On the top floor is their restaurant Crows Nest. The food is seasonal and fresh! There isn't anything subpar on the menu!!!! The bisque and snow crab are to die for!

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The staff, especially the "captain" was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgable. Rooms are spacey & clean, so is the bathroom. The view wasn't amazing (from our room we were overlooking an abandoned, sandy playground; no idea if other rooms offer better views), but the ambiance of the hotel made up for that.... More

The staff was very friendly, the hotel lobby welcoming and the room was very comfortable and quiet. I would stay here again without a doubt if I had the chance. The only con was the room rate - kind of high , though still pretty good considering what other hotels were asking.

We stayed here as part of a tourist group. As a group of five travelling we were given interconnecting rooms which was very helpful, and the staff were very accommodating to the mixed languages spoken by the group. As someone who struggles in the heat, the airconditioning was incredible, we were never suffering from the heat in the room, but... More
