The full name is William A. Egan Civic and Convention Center. The building has a very attractive curved glass facade. A covered sky-way from this place to Alaska Center for the Performing Arts is a very striking feature of the architecture. This place was used as a hospitality center by our cruise company for tourists who took their ground transportation... More

Would you like to take a walking tour of the city of Anchorage while on a cruise that docks here? The shuttle runs to and from the secured port to this location. We walked the city, looked at the beautiful scenery and of course wanted a clean public facility when nature called. Go to Alaska, when in Anchorage take time... More

Great place for conventions, weddings, and formal events! Bathrooms are clean and the location can't be beat. Located in a great spot downtown which is great for those who may be visiting from out of town (conferences and whatnot).

We were dropped off here after our cruise to pick our luggage and go to our hotel. We couldn't check in till 2pm so we spent the morning here relaxing! We enjoyed the art exhibits throughout the center. It is centrally located! We did some shopping across the street that was very convenient!

We had our 2013 Christmas party at the Egan Center, downstairs, with about 200 or so people in attendance. Everyone had great things to say about the staff, the facilities, and the food. We chose the buffet option and were not disappointed. The prices seemed reasonable for the location (downtown Anchorage, right next to shopping and parking) and the staff... More

It was a blast. Alaska brewed beers are fantastic. Can't wait to go again! It was really crowded but worth the time we spent there. Met wonderful people and tasted great beer.
