True to its name, The Lakefront Anchorage fronts Lake Spenard and is right next to Lake Hood, the largest and busiest seaplane base in the world. For those hoping to get out on the water for flightseeing and fishing, this is the spot. There’s plenty to see and do from Anchorage’s only lakeside hotel, as you watch the seaplanes come in and out all day. From this excellent location, it’s easy to attend a local festival, explore Kincaid or Earthquake Park, take a hike on the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail or visit the Aviation Museum. Downtown Anchorage is just 4 miles down the road. With the majestic Chugach Mountains as a stunning backdrop and an easy-going elegance inside, the lodge-style hotel is a perfect blend of modern comfort and a frontier vibe.
A variety of deluxe rooms, suites and accessible guest rooms are available, from 350 to 740 square feet. Each accommodation is appointed in natural earth tones and classic wood accents with thoughtful amenities such as a refrigerator, a smart TV, coffee- and tea-making facilities, an in-room safe and WiFi. The Anchorage and McKinley suites feature a separate living and dining area.
After a busy day of adventures, The Lakefront Anchorage’s restaurants offer enticing ways to refuel, whether it’s a hearty bistro breakfast at the Flying Machine, bison burgers and jumbo crab legs at the Fancy Moose Lounge or summertime lakeside dining, with a crisp, cold pint of Alaskan Amber, at The Deck at Lake Hood. The dog-friendly hotel also offers a children’s program for its youngest guests, a private floatplane dock, a complimentary 24-hour shuttle to Stevens Anchorage International Airport (just 1 mile away), a business center, freezer storage, a fitness center, a tour desk and more.
