Quality Well Located Hotel

We arrived in Anchorage following a 3 week cruise to a very comfortable, clean room. The hotel is large with dining options and shops on the ground floor. Good health facilities and a spa which we did not have time to use. The ground floor bar served good reasonably priced drinks in a lively atmosphere. Tonight, we will attend an event at the Hotel for 430 people. We had a room in the SW corner of the hotel on the 12th floor that had a great view of the waterfront. Nearby restaurants and bars are excellent alternatives if you want to get out and walk which I suggest. Nearby statue of Captain Cook overlooks part of the port and the Denali. Helpful staff makes this Hotel a good choice in Anchorage.

This hotel is located downtown making it very easy to walk the downtown. The hotel has 3 towers and we were located in tower 3 with an excellent view of the mountains. The room was spacious and the bedding was excellent. The only reason I did not give a five was because our luggage was delivered to another room. We never got our luggage until after 6 pm.

Stayed at the Hotel Captain Cook for six nights. From the minute we encountered valet parking to our checking out, every thing was top notch. The historical aspect of the hotel was a draw for us and we were not disappointed in the service, food, interactions with staff, cleanliness and the location. The view was stunning!!!
We will stay here again!

Historic hotel - close to everything

This was my 2nd visit to the Hotel Captain Cook. It’s an historic hotel that has lots of character in the lobby with nice restaurants, shops and helpful staff. The rooms are very clean, comfortable but a bit dated.

The location is near most anything you’ll need in downtown anchorage. There’s a hertz car rental across the street for east car rental for day trips.

Great overnight stay

Stayed at the Captain Cook for one night prior to the land portion of the Princess land/sea package. Good downtown location. The main floor which is nicely decorated has several good shops for you to explore. We had dinner and drinks at Fletcher's. Good food and service. Had a good breakfast in the Café the next morning. Yes, the room is a bit dated but it was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The only issue I had was with the lighting in the bathroom. Lights only above the vanity made the shower pretty dark. Overall, the service was top-notch and we would not hesitate to stay here again should we return to Anchorage.
