Location near airport with seaplanes nearby. Shuttle to downtown and airport. Animals in lobby.
Lobby and hotel room were incredibly warm upon arrival. No lock on bathroom door is not convenient with toddlers.
Everyone was friendly and the place was great
There was nothing I didn't like
Lakefront Rest Stop
We spent our last night in Anchorage at the Lakefront before flying home after an extended 2 week vacation. I picked the hotel because of the location near the airport. I really wish we had stayed there longer as it was a beautiful hotel with an amazing view of the Lake with seaplanes landing and taking off. There is a bar and restaurant with great views. We didn't sit outside in the patio because of the mosquitos is the only negative. But I guess that is normal for June in alaska.
We enjoyed everything about this hotel. One of the best in Anchorage!!!
Much better than anticipated
I'm an incredibly high strung guy who demands a lot of myself, so I always know when I travel Alaska that I need to be more present to the amazing geography and lower my standards on the room I'll barely spend any time in while enjoying the outdoors. I travel to Anchorage one a quarter and have noticed that the Starvrating system isn't quite the same as the lower 48 states. With that said I was incredibly impressed with this hotel for its masterful balance of Alaska heritage (complete with animals) and modern hotel amenities. No need to lower any standards, but rather super clean rooms with modern furnishings and space efficient room layout. Staff was chipper, helpful, and really jovial.
Nothing notable... However, I had an odd experience. I hydrate a lot on trips and typically go through a gallon a day. One night I ran out of water and I searched the hotel for bottled water, but there were zero options. Every single vending machine in the hotel was stocked full of soda and multiple brands of energy drinks. I ended up driving to a nearby gas station for some H2o. Not a big deal...
room to hot and front desk wouldn't provide a copy of receipt upon check out.
I was completely offended when the staff photocopied my driver's license and also took my credit card. I was told they do that (photo copy a driver's license) because of some of the actions that have taken place so they need to have this in case something happens - it creeped me out and made me wonder if I should even stay there in the first place! Are the clients so sketchy that everyone is a suspect? They claimed all hotels do that (copy the driver's license) they just don't tell you - I don't believe it - I hadn't had that happen before - I won't stay there again. The rooms were fine - this action is not!
Pretty expensive for a 1 night, no amenities stay.
Very nice and clean, nice staff, great house keeping.
Rentaviation and missing door lock hook. Too long of walk to room. Need to move location of loby
Room was not clean, too much noise from adjoining room.
