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.

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 The rooms were just average...a little outdated/ small bathroom...but clean and the staff was very friendly.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.

This was our first trip to Anchorage, so I really can't compare the Westmark to other lodgings, but the hotel seems to be rather dated. A small number of small elevators which is less than adequate when large groups arrive. We arrived by bus, but it seems like parking would be difficult if you came by car.

This was our first trip to Anchorage, so I really can't compare the Westmark to other lodgings, but the hotel seems to be rather dated. A small number of small elevators which is less than adequate when large groups arrive. We arrived by bus, but it seems like parking would be difficult if you came by car. Rooms are clean and functional. Breakfast is not included. The location does seem to be more or less centrally located relative to "downtown" Anchorage, but ironically the nearest grocery store is many blocks away (perhaps more the fault of Anchorage than the hotel).
