Had a great stay with friends for the reindeer run and Iditarod festivities. The location makes all my favorite restaurant/bars a short walk. The entire hotel staff was friendly and attentive. Will be back again.

I gave it 4 stars because you still had to pay for daily parking, While better than $10 for 2 hours still a little annoying. The pillows and bed in the king room were very comfortable.

This is a nice looking hotel both in the lobby and in the rooms. The parking sucks. They have a restaurant but I don't think it gets much business. Totally dead both nights I went in there.

Stayed here one night after a long day of flying across the country in preparation for an Alaskan cruise that we would board the next day.

An average property in downtown Anchorage. Parking is convenient if you have a car. Property is older and needs a makeover. Rooms were just OK but good enough for a night. Elevators are slow and cramped. Hotel sits on the corner so traffic noise can be a problem. The hotel is convenient and within easy walking distance of many restaurants... More

The Westmark used to be a premier hotel but it appears that the owners aren't putting any money into keeping it that way. While it's still a 'reasonable' value considering the off-season rate I would not pay any more for it in season. Our room had holes in the wall where a towel rack had been, the mattress was terrible... More

Clean rooms, friendly staff and beautiful view on the 12th floor. Having a fresh starbucks coffee available in the mornings is an extra plus for coffee fans like me. I have to add that the fireplace in the lobby gives you the true feeling of being home.
