People love this national chain for its crowd-pleasing perks—like the all-important free hot breakfast—but this branch of the Hampton ups the ante with nice local touches.
Easy Anchorage Access, Great Amenities
Located between Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport and Downtown Anchorage, the hotel has user-friendly access for anyone heading into or out of the city, or wanting a home base to explore Alaska. You’re just a short drive from Merrill Field, Lake Hood—even the local Wal-Mart if you need some gear or provisions for your trip.
Rooms come with king or queen beds, LED HDTVs with premium channels, and coffee makers—and some even come with a kitchenette of a fridge and microwave, while some rooms also come with whirlpool tubs. Ask for the view rooms if you want to wake up to see the Chugach Mountains. Everyone gets free WiFi, too, as well as access to a fitness center and an indoor heated pool.
Local Ambience and Friendly Service
With all of the business-hotel-style convenience, the hotel channels the ambience of an Alaska lodge, with log furniture and Alaska cultural motifs on the walls, along with Alaska photography in all of the rooms. Guests who stay here say that the friendly service feels especially local too: Some of the staff has been here since the hotel opened in 1999—a good sign that this is the perfect blend of familiar and unique.
