There were spectacular views as we flew into Anchorage. I wish that we'd had more time here. We arrived late afternoon, checked into our hotel and left the next morning.

Woke up in Anchorage to a double rainbow. Looking good!!!!!! Met with JASON our guide for our group. Great guy. Young with lots of energy!! We are old and have no energy , so I guess it will average out.

Today we started the long trek home. Our first stop was at Talkeetna. Talkeetna is a very small town which happens to be the starting point if you decide you ever want to climb Mt. McKinley. A $350 registration fee and a trip to Talkeetna will get you started. After spending the afternoon here, we hopped on a train for the 2-1/2 ride to Anchorage. …

    We only spent one night here, but it was clean and comfortable. Views from the restaurant on top are nice. Breakfast was very good.

    Super nice hotel. I was surprised to be escorted from the taxi by a gentleman in a top hat, but Anchorage is not an ordinary place. My only complaint with this hotel is the lack of air conditioning. This Georgia girl is a little on the toasty side at the moment, and opening the window / turning on the fan is not quite cutting it. But who would think that a/c was necessary in Alaska? Me either.

    When we arrived, I was completely shocked by a gentleman in a top hat opening the taxi door. Overall, nice hotel with good accommodation, but no air conditioning? Open up the window and turn on the fan? Really? That's a tough one for this Georgia girl to swallow.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Hotel Captain Cook Anchorage

    So-so Captain Cook

    from

    For one of the best hotels in Anchorage - I wasn't particularly impressed.

    Not too impressed

    from

    No matter what hotel you choose in Anchorage it will be a bit of a shock to the wallet. So I decided to splurge for 2 days at the Cook. My first impression was it's not a bright and cheery place.

    Should you stay at a Local or Chain Hotel?

    from

    We just returned from Anchorage, AK to complete our 50th and final state in the US. It has been a wonderful journey, and we have alot of experience in hotels and service from our travels.

    Service Oriented and Comfortable Setting

    from

    Just returned from a six night stay at the end of March, early April. Stayed on the seventh floor in the middle tower, great view, although any tall building in Anchorage will offer a great view since the city is surrounded by natual beauty, especially after a good snowfall like we got.

    Wonderful Stay

    from

    As soon as we arrived at the Captain Cook for a large conference, they were all out of regular rooms, so they put us in a Suite at no extra charge. The room was wonderful, it was clean, and there was turn down service every night. Everyone was so polite and very helpful. The breakfast at the Pantry was very good and suprisingly not too expensive. There were lots of nice shops in the hotel, and the hotel is down town amongst lots of other shopping. Free internet at the business center, but parking was a bit pricey. I would definetly come back to this hotel, it was a wonderful experience!

    Not that fancy, but OK.

    from

    I chose the hotel because it seemed elegant. It was OK, but I expected more. Centrally located, classic decor, but crowded. If you like old fashioned hotels, Capt. Cook will please you. If you are more into modernity, look for something else.

    Dark and Drab

    from

    I stayed for 3 nights in mid July. This is a VERY average hotel with prices found at luxury hotels. There are virtually no in room amenities: No coffe in room (even motel 6 gives you that) Sheets with holes, poor TV reception, and ridiculously miserable webTV quality virtually unusable (but for which you will be charged--so go to the business center and pay THROUGH THE NOSE for an internet connection that you can get for $5 at any internet cafe.) The decor is DARK in a medievel, not romantic way. The views of the inlet are OK, but don't look down to the surrounding neighborhood it's decidedly low rent. I didn't eat here it was too dark. ON the plus side: it has a very nice gym facility.

    Perfect Accomodations

    from

    Stayed 2 nights in late September for work. Enjoyed a corner room with beautiful view of both the inlet and the mountains/city. Great service everywhere from check in to room service to breakfast each morning in The Pantry, dinner at Fletcher's, drinks at the Crow's Nest. Has to be Alaska's top hotel, much more character than the Marriott although I have enjoyed nice stays there, too. Very warm and cozy furnishings throughout the hotel and an excellent fitness club and pool made my stay very pleasant. Hope to stay there again.

    The Soul of Anchorage

    from

    We arrived in Anchorage at the end of an Alaskan cruise on July 3rd. We always look for a hotel that embodies the best of the area we're visiting and after a lot of investigation we decided on the Captain Cook. We weren't disappointed. From the moment you walk in you're a part of Alaska's present and past. The hotel has many unique shops with Alaskan handicrafts, art and sculptures. We enjoyed a junior suite on the secured 16th floor. The hospitality suite on the 17th floor had the most incredible views out over Cook's inlet and the mountains. It was well-maintained, lots of fruit, beverages, snacks, large-screen t.v.

    The Captain does it right

    from

    A very nice hotel in the heart of downtown, if you like fancy and pampering this is the place. Nice rooms and good views with very professional staff. The pool is very basic but the fitness rooms are very nice and free to us. "This will be the only thing you will find free in Anchorage" This hotel is rather pricey but so are the average hotels in Alaska.
