Just spent the last five days at the Lakefront Hotel. Had a room on the 2nd floor that was very nice, clean, and quite. The hotel also has a nice restaurant and bar. The only problem I had was food & drink charges on my bill that were corrected at checkout. I would recommend staying here if you need a...

The hotel had recently been renovated and the new rooms were spacious and classy. Will be choosing the Lakefront when my wife and I visit again. Thanks again to all the amazing staff at the front desk and concierge corner!

Stayed here on business and was blown away with how nice it was and how helpful the staff was. I have never stayed in a hotel and remembered any of the staff's names. Bethany at the front desk was efficient, polite and helpful. However, Marcus saved my trip when a local taxi company let me down. He went above and...

We always stay at the Lakefront because it is Iditarod headquarters for the race. Lots of pre-race and during the race activities. Good food and great staff. ONE CONCERN; the hotel gift shop has been closed for some uniknown reasaon. I strongly urge that management consider reopening the gift shop.. it is needed !!

We stayed there for 4 nights while we had some medical procedures done. It was clean and the room was lovely. They put us in a room that looks over the lake. I like to stay there because there is a lot of parking and it is close to everything. They have a restaurant but we didn't eat there this...

We enjoyed a very good breakfast in the dining room of the Lakefront Anchorage Hotel. The dining room overlooks the lake where the sea planes land by Anchorage Airport. The eggs with reindeer sausage was excellent wth crisp hash brown potatoes

My family and I stay here quite a bit, especially during hockey season. Our rooms are always clean and comfortable and the staff is the best!!! Very accommodating. The Lakefront is in a convenient location as well.
