This was a wonderful find - great prices and unbeatable location. The taxidermy on display is amazing and staff was great - next time travel brings me to Anchorage, I'll definitely look to this place.

Sanderson32, Many thanks to you for the kind words of support and recommendation. We are proud of the taxidermy inside our lobby and seek to provide a means for insightful discussion on each of the Alaskan species showcased. Our summer downtown shuttle is up and running and the floatplanes are on the move at Lake Hood. Summer is here!! We...

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. Seeing the dogs and mushers, getting autographs, etc. was the icing on the cake. I can't say enough about the staff. Every single person...

We have stayed here twice and the hotel is a great place in Anchorage. It's very convenient to the airport with a 24-hr shuttle to the airport, is reasonably priced, has clean rooms and a very helpful staff. We will continue to stay when we visit Anchorage again.

My husband and I had a great stay at The Lakefront recently. We needed a last minute reservation after plans with a friend fell through. Rooms were available with only hours notice. The room was spacious and very clean. Loved the Moose Lounge, ate there both nights. The lounge was always busy, but the service was great, despite how busy...

I frequently travel for work and doing SAR with K9s. They have always found me great accommodating rooms for whatever needs I have. My K9s love the hotel and the staff treats them like honored guests. The staff is amazing and even new staff have no problem assisting guests. Recently Matt helped me and with a booked hotel was able...

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.

Great Location, close the airport, and next to a lake. They have a complimentary shuttle to / from the airport. The restaurant offers a great view of the lake. 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...
