... filling-up place. While we waited for our food, talked to an Athabascan Indian lady who had just set up a small museum in the roadhouse with family heirlooms. She lived in Copper Centre, and had interesting tales about life when she was young, bear encounters etc.

We carried on, and took photos of the Alaska Pipeline, lots of pine trees, of a decent size because we are down lower and probably out of the permafrost areas, more of the Alaska Pipeline, and ...

... Winter if the beats got hungry I don't know. There has never been a casualty though. We learned about the Gold Rush and an obliging park ranger showed us how to pan for gold and treated us to a trip through the emergency exit doors to see Mount McKinley in the distance - a rare sight in Anchorage, because usually, it is too cloudy to see it at all. He was pretty excited about it. We passed a beautiful quilt shop with some stunning completed quilts on display. One ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Alaskan Hotel Anchorage

    Not worth the money

    from

    Stayed here July 2004 for two nights. Yuck. The room was not what we expected for the money. Walking the looonnnng hallways to the lobby/resturant is almost scary! Window a/c units that are blocked by the curtains that you have to use to keep out the sunlight at night. I guess a/c in Alaska is not a priority (I do understand that, but when we were there it was a necessity!). The parking lot was filthy with litter. The pictures on the website give a very different view of what you get for sure! We did enjoy the float planes. And the resturant was a lot of fun for drinks and snacks. Breakfast at Gennies right by the hotel cannot be beat. As far as a return trip to Anchorage, we will not stay here.

    Last Night Reservation Change

    from

    We stayed here the night before we picked up our motor home, and were suppose to stay here the last night before our return home. Before we left Orlando, I happened to be reading reviews of the hotel, and I am so glad that I did. Intuition told me to back out of the last night, even though it would cost me $25 cancellation fee. We got in late, so the hotel was convenient, and they had shuttle service, many do not. It was also close to ABC motorhome rental. We gave up trying to find the first room we were assigned, and I went back to the desk and asked if there was a room available closer to the lobby, with a view of the lake, like the website for the hotel displays. Our room was changed, and we had a new view. The back of someone's house. If there are rooms with water views, they are scarce. When I had made the reservation, I explained that it was a very special event, please give us a room with a view. Personally, it was nothing like I imagined. The picture taken for the web, was taken obviously from the water (far out). It was convenient, but the last night we stayed at the Westmark - same price - and YAHOO! GREAT!

    Terrible

    from

    The hotel was filthy. The managers were very rude and then when we asked for the general manager he was even worse. The rooms smell and the A/C leaks. Would not recommend at all. Save your money and go somewhere else.

    Horrible!!!!

    from

    90 degrees outside....NO Airconcitioning.....

    Bellmen were the most helpful people we

    met...Bartenders were slow...rude and

    generally unconcerned about service...The

    resturant and bar areas are appealing...just

    poor service and attitudes.

    Beautiful lobby areas with taxidermy of museum

    quality. A great place to visit....stay there?????

    Not in this Millennium!

    from

    This hotel was completely over priced and under delivered! On our first evening we were given bad directions to a restaurant which was only about 5 minutes away - we found it the NEXT night. The air conditioner was behind the shades which blocks the light at night and also blocks the air from circulating. Noisy due to the float planes and airport. The float planes are fun to watch mind you but not flying overhead at 7am. All in all, there are definitely better hotels and bed & breakfasts in Anchorage!

    Very Alaskan experience!

    from

    I was a little concerned about booking at this hotel after I read some of the reviews, but now that I have stayed at the hotel, I am glad I booked. I thought the lobby was beautiful, we loved seeing all of the wildlife, the polar bear, the fish, even the musk ox! Our room was quite comfortable and we found the extra sink very handy in the morning.

    Has seen better days

    from

    The Millenium Anchorage is a high-priced hotel that doesn't really deliver a high-priced experience. In its heydays at the Regal hotel, it was one of the nicest in Anchorage. But, the recent hotel building boom in Anchorage offers the tourist or business traveler many more choices at much better rates. I stayed there for four days in June 2002, on business.

    Nicely done with an elegant Alaskan flavor

    from

    I was a little concerned about staying at this property after reading the previous reviews.

    Dingy and Desperately in Need of Some Attention

    from

    Many problems with this hotel. The solitary clerk at registration took over 15 minutes to get myself and one other person checked in (and managed to give the other person a key to a room which was already occupied!). Lobby filled with scary stuffed animals and looks like a hunting lodge furnished by Wal Mart. Hallways are dark, filled with clutter (roll-out beds, bars, chairs), wallpaper either missing or peeling off. Rooms were shabby and in need of TLC, although bed was comfortable. My window was stuck open on a -5 degree evening, but was fixed. "Flying Machine" restaurant was actually the one bright spot with a good breakfast and lunch. Completely unable to assist with business services (couldn't tell me where I could connect to the internet!). Would avoid.

    Over Priced

    from

    We stayed at the Millenium two nights prior to picking up our rented motorhome. We were supposed to stay the night before flying home but cancelled and chose another hotel that was substantially less expensive and honestly much nicer.

    The hotel's lobby is impressive with its stuffed wildlife exhibit but the accomodations are just average. The hallway to our room was in need of some serious attention - wallpaper coming off the walls, carpeting coming up, etc. The room was dark and needed higher watt lightbulbs.

    The cost for the room was $200ish a night - way too expensive if you ask me.
