Lonely Planet review
The grand dame of Anchorage accommodations still has an air of an Alaskan aristocrat right down to the doormen with top hats. There are plenty of plush services and upscale shops: hot tubs, a fitness club, beauty salon, jewelry store and four restaurants, including the famed Crow’s Nest bar on the top floor. Rooms have been updated with new mattresses.
Our independent authors have visited The Hotel Captain Cook and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Anchorage.
