Walking into the lobby was very ..... shall we say, "Alaska-y"?? Which, in my book, is a great thing! Jacob, at the front desk, was very knowledgable and helpful as this was our first trip to Alaska. It was great to see a smiling face after arriving from our arduous flight! The room was clean and comfortable, we will definitely...

We stayed one night after spending 16 hours in planes and airports. A shuttle picked us up 5' after we called and this was at 1a. Our bed was absolutely divine with crisp clean sheets and abundant pillows. It was clean, quiet and refreshing. Breakfast was delicious too. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Thank you!

It was quiet, front desk people were friendly and professional. Bed, pillows and linens were divine. I slept very well. Shower was hot and lots of pressure. Coffee maker was kind of a joke and there was only one cup. The coffee packet make colored water.

The atmosphere of the hotel is very cozy. But the best asset is the staff, they are super friendly, supportive, they convey that kind of small ton hospitality that's hard to...

I arrived at Ted Stevens airport at 4:30 am! After a long flight, Desmond (shuttle driver) & Holly (concierge) made my welcoming to the hotel warm and friendly! Honestly, STELLAR SERVICE! So good that I'd even recommend a raise! I'd come back to this hotel just because of their friendliness!

Our stay at the Lakefront was enjoyable, affordable and super convenient. Our stay was in late March in the middle of a significant snow week and so the views were phenomenal.
