I spent two nights at the Lakefront Anchorage at the start of an Alaskan duck hunt and a night on the back end as I was headed home. A courtesy shuttle from the airport, helpful staff -- especially Brian at the desk -- and a freezer to store game in made this a terrific place to stay. The restaurants served...

The lobby has several stuffed animals (polar bear, musk ox, goat), which definitely makes it fit into the Anchorage experience. When I checked in, the front desk clerk was sure to tell me all about the hotel and restaurants and even...

Excellent room, I really liked the new layout, gives even the regular room a little of the suit feel. Clean, modern and very comfortable bed. The breakfast in the morning was also excellent with many healthy choices.

Room was excellent, service was prompt, everyone was helpful when we needed it. Shuttle driver helped my mother get from the room to the shuttle and then after we unloaded at the airport a man took one of our bags by accident and Marcus tracked him down and got our bag back for us. Truly exceptional service. Thanks guys!!
