Close to the airport with a view over lake Hood, the hotel is both comfortable and pleasant with all those animals in the lobby Special to Bethany and Chad at the reception desk for their so kind efficiency

The Lake Front hotel is amazing. I have stayed several times and the staff is always professional, efficient and welcoming. Leanne Sommer ensures that the booking process exceeds expectations and is a joy to work with. Bethany at the front desk checks you in quickly and with a smile. She helped me with any request I had and always makes...

This was a very enjoyable vacation. Hotel Staff was friendly and helpful. The shuttle driver Marcus Robinson was very personable and when I tried to help with my luggage he insisted that I wait inside where it was warm while he grabbed my things. I appreciated his eagerness to help and very friendly nature. In my experience most shuttle drivers...

The shuttle was prompt and courteous, check in was seamless, the lobby is open and not over-decorated, and there are amenities on the property to accommodate a longer stay. My room was spacious with very tasteful and upscale fixtures and decoration. I felt relaxed, and not like I was in just another generic hotel room. I look forward to staying...

We made a last minute trip to Anchorage over Thanksgiving. While driving down I found this hotel online having a Pre-Black Friday sale. When I called to make a reservation they told me they couldn't offer the deal over the phone. I went back to the website and confirmed my reservation but there were several prompts... long story short, it...

Loved all the Stuffed Animals throughout this Hotel. Staff could have been a little Friendlier. Watching the Float Planes come and go on the Lake was a Great Experience for us. Room was very nice. Not too much within walking distance. We took a Taxi to Downtown for a day.

My first room had no wifi signal and was very stale in smell. The second day I moved room and was then harassed by reception when I walked through the lobby that "Housekeeping advised that I had been smoking in the room". I explained that I would never ever smoke in a hotel room and was horrified at the accusation....

The hotel was okay. It had comfortable bed. My only gripe was the wifi kept dropping during our stay. Aside from that I thought the lobby was really impressive. Free shuttle to the airport was nice too. Would come back again

We live in a remote village 600 miles west of Anchorage. When passing through Anchorage for business the lakefront is our first choice. This time we needed to get some documents printed up quickly, David and Jeanette at the front desk didn't bat an eye There summer time Concierge also so does a great job.

This was our third time staying here this last year. Excellent service! We bring our dog with us & when we returned from dinner there was a pet basket waiting outside our room door! It had salmon treats, a dog toy, & a water/food bowl. What a nice surprise! Our waitress at breakfast was so friendly & provided excellent service....
