First, I have to say (since no other reviews indicate it), this hotel DOES NOT have a swimming pool, despite other review places indicate it as having one. I booked it thinking it did. My wife doesn't normally come on these trips, but I convinced her to come and told her it had a pool. Sad day for me. The...

Mr. Fullmer, Thank you for giving us your feedback on your recent, short stay. I'm very sorry that the impression of us having a "pool" continues to permeate certain websites. We continue to make efforts to eliminate this falsehood, despite us never having a pool since being constructed. The internet issues you experienced are surprising and I will look into...

Hotel staff was great. Enjoyed being in a lodge, rather than same old decor; only negative was the food and service in restaurants, which are advertised as three but really only one. The food was mediocre; the service about the same. Not enough help for breakfast. Very slow, and had to be reminded of things, like silverware. Enjoyed the hotel...

The staff, especially Tony and Elsa and Roy, were amazing! The people here have been super friendly and helpful. When I got here the lake was frozen, but I got to watch it melt completely within two weeks. The trail around the lake is an experience because you walk past all these little seaplanes and mini house/storage buildings as well...

Holly, Thank you for your kind words and comments regarding The Lakefront Anchorage. I'm especially proud of the individuals you mentioned in your comments and will take the time to commend them. The transition of Lake Spenard from "frozen to open" one is exciting. It's great that you were able to witness it. As the busiest floatplane base in the...

Lovely lobby if you like looking at dead animals! This place is huge and rooms go in many directions. We had a walk down a long hallway and an excellent view of the bathroom on the lower floor in another wing. Had difficulty getting picked up by shuttle. Good thing was that car rental place was within walking distance.

Loved staying here. Front desk staff -- Matt and Bethany -- delivered five-star customer service. I'd inadvertently booked the wrong dates for my stay; they corrected the problem, honored the rate, and even let me check in early. Such a rarity to find truly excellent service; their customer care was MUCH appreciated!! The property itself was very pleasant. The room...

Petru provided amazing service when I was at the Lakefront for a conference. I am gluten-intolerant and the provided meal was a pasta bar. :( I asked Petru for vegetables and he provided me with a plate full of delicious sauteed vegetables. Kudos to Petru and the kitchen staff for the incredible service! :)

We stayed in the St. Elias suite for the 2017 Iditarod and loved it! Staying at this hotel during the hustle and bustle added to the experience since all of the official Iditarod activities happen here.
