Hotel Highlight: The Lakefront Anchorage

If you are someone who describes your travel style as “outdoor and adventurous,” then chances are Anchorage, Alaska is already on your bucket list. Glaciers, mountain peaks, and millions of acres of protected wilderness are all within a day’s drive of Alaska’s biggest city, and The Lakefront Anchorage is where you want to stay for quick, easy access to all of it.

Here are three reasons why The Lakefront Anchorage is the perfect starting point for your Alaska vacation:

1.  The convenience

This is one of the closest hotels to Anchorage International Airport, so when it comes to making it from baggage claim to a lakeside happy hour as fast as possible, it doesn’t get much better than this. The drive is only a mile, and the hotel offers a free 24/7 airport shuttle service to boot. It’s also only four miles from downtown Anchorage, making it equally easy to go into town.

2.  The views

Nestled on the shores of Lake Spenard, there are plenty of gorgeous views to soak up from this property, whether it’s the backdrop of the Chugach Mountains, calm lakefront sunsets, or floatplanes landing on the water. Oh, and be sure to have happy hour on The Deck – it’s the only lakeside dining in town. The in-room views aren’t too bad either, with warm tones and modern, lodge-style décor making for a rich and comfortable stay.

3.  The floatplanes

Those planes we mentioned? You can hop on one right from the hotel’s private dock. If you’re thinking about taking a long weekend trip, book yourself a flightseeing trip or fishing pickup at the hotel and get the best of sightseeing in Alaska without spending hours driving to a more remote location.

PS: Wondering what to do with all those fish you’re going to catch? The hotel offers freezer storage, so you’re all set. Just be sure to check out our special items baggage policies if you plan to bring your catch home or want to pack your own gear.
