Has seen better days A review of Millennium Alaskan Hotel Anchorage
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.
While the hotel does front Lake Spenard and its float plane facilities, many of the rooms do not offer any sort of lake view. My $225 room was small, dark, and more akin to a Motel 6 than a $200+ night hotel. The restaurant, however, was very good, and is a very nice spot to have breakfast (good lake views). The location is certainly convenient to the airport, and there is a free shuttle, but there are better, cheaper choices nearby on the same road.
In short: not a bad hotel by any means, and a convenient location. But the hotel is overpriced and is still trading on its reputation from its glory days. With a refurbishing it could be quite nice.
