Westmark Anchorage Hotel

Anchorage, Alaska

The hotel

When it’s all about the destination, a stay at Westmark Anchorage Hotel delivers. Anchored in downtown, it’s right by the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, and a simple stroll from 5th Avenue Mall and Anchorage Museum. But it’s not just the ‘nearby’ sights you get to enjoy when you stay here — every guestroom has a private balcony with views either down to the buzzing city scene or out to the Chugach Mountains or Cook Inlet. The tour desk is open all summer to set you up with action-packed adventures like flight-seeing over glaciers and cruising along fjords, or taking more gentle trolley tours around Anchorage. Of course, it’s not just about what’s outside, so inside you get complimentary WiFi access, a gym, Alaskan dining — think ‘reindeer burgers’ — at Solstice Bar & Grill, and pastries and Starbucks® at the espresso bar.

The Westmark Anchorage was well located in the center of the city. It was an easy walk to restaurants, shopping and attractions. The building is clearly a little older, the ground floor was a bit of a maze, and the hallways were a bit dated. However, our room was nice.

A decent place to stay while in Anchorage. The lobby is really nice. The rooms were just average...a little outdated/ small bathroom...but clean and the staff was very friendly. Could use a little update. But, it is an amazing area for walkers...directly across the road from the Brewhouse.

Bedding very comfortable. Staff very friendly. Location perfect. Staff was very accommodating! Very close to convention facilities. A landmark, refurbished with the last earthquake. Elevators pretty fast.
