We stayed at the Westmark Anchorage at the beginning of a land/cruise tour with Holland America. Arrived in the early evening and was assigned a room on the 14th floor. Room was very old and dated and the bathroom floor was covered with hair. The only positive was it had a balcony overlooking the city. We were extremely disappointed with... More

Check in was a breeze. Every staff member I talked to was super friendly and informative. The room was very clean, and the bed and pillows were fabulous! I slept like a baby. The shower can get very, very hot. This is a plus for anyone, like me, who loves hot showers, but for those that are sensitive, be careful.... More

This was booked for us on our Holland America cruise/tour. The hotel was nice, but nothing special. Our room was clean and comfy. The location was good. The luggage situation could have been handled better, but that is on Holland America, not the Westmark. Apparently the Westmark has little room to store luggage prior to check-in, so cruise passengers must... More

This place needs to be updated, better locks on sliding doors to balcony as well as better elevators. Although it is close to a great downtown area. The Federal building has a visitors center with lots of history. No coffee in main area, food is expensive.

Like most of the reviewers, we were here for one night of the Alaska land/cruise. When you are a hostage, you must make the best of it. As the others have accurately pointed out, the place is dated and in need of considerable freshening. Our room had a terrace, but the weather was inclement. Beautiful view of the harbor from...

We were booked into this property by Holland America. They should be ashamed of themselves. We walked in,walked out and stayed up the street.This hotel needs to be closed, gutted and totally redone. Don't start or end your dream vacation here.

Adequate, a little dated, though clean, functional rooms right in the heart of downtown. You can get nicer, though their price is better. I will use them again. Though, skip the breakfast, walk around the corner to Karachis for your coffee

We also stayed at the Westmark as part of our Holland America land and sea tour. We arrived from our port in Seward after having to get up at 5AM and catch a train (9/18/16) at 11:40 and we were told our rooms would not be available until 3:15. We tried to find some things around anchorage to kill the... More

As many others have said, this place is in need of serious attention. It is battered and dated in all areas including the rooms. The small as we entered the room was overwhelming: it seems the carpet had just been cleaned and was still wet and the smell of freshner strong. Furniture was dated and battered. The bathroom was serviceable... More

The hotel which is owned by Holland America is used mainly by cruise land tour guests. It's okay for an evening but needs updating and modernization. The staff were very nice and the hotel location is convenient for shops and restaurants. Not sure if I would stay there if traveling on my own.
