Great all-around hotel! We were here 4 nights and enjoyed watching the planes take off and land on the lake. This is the busiest lake in the US for water planes. Approx. 25% of all water plane take offs & landings in the US are from this lake! The hotel is also very close to the Anchorage airport but the rooms were pretty quiet considering. Our stay included tickets for breakfast each morning and there are limited choices (5 things) so my kids ended up having the french toast every single day. The rooms are nice, beds comfortable - several choices of pillows. The hallways are long so you could be a considerable distance from the hotel lobby/restaurants. This hotel provides shuttles to/from the airport at any time and to/from downtown Anchorage at scheduled times. Being so close to the airport, they arrived to pick us up at midnight within about a 6 minute wait. Shuttle drivers were all extremely friendly and accommodating. There is also an approx. 3 mile walking path around the lake that this hotel is on. It goes right through parts of the water plane and small engine airports! This hotel is also walking distance to several restaurants including Subway, pizza and McDonalds. There is not a pool at this hotel and you cannot swim in the lake due to the airplanes.

Distinct Alaskan Beauty Inside and Out at The Lakefront Anchorage

 

Set on the shore of Lake Spenard next to Lake Hood, The Lakefront Anchorage is the only hotel in Anchorage that is located on a lake. Our scenic hotel has daily flightseeing and fishing pickups from its own dock, from which you can also gaze at floatplanes with the majestic Chugach Mountains behind. Getting here is a breeze: the hotel is conveniently located near Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, with downtown Anchorage just four miles away. 

 

At The Lakefront you'll be at the center of all the action, right next to Lake Hood - the largest and busiest floatplane base in the world, with some 250 planes landing each day. There's plenty to see and do near our hotel, including exploring Earthquake Park, Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, Kincaid Park or the Aviation Museum. Book your stay to coincide with some of the great events happening right on our doorstep, such as the Alaska Aviation Festival or Anchorage International Film Festival.

 

Complete your Last Frontier adventure with delicious local cuisine, including our bison burgers or jumbo king crab legs paired with an icy pint of Alaskan Amber. Inspired by Alaska’s rich history in aviation, The Flying Machine Restaurant serves breakfast and dinner with a distinct Alaskan twist. Don’t forget to try the Fancy Moose Lounge or The Deck at Lake Hood, both local favorites serving great food and drink with great views of the lake. Make us your first stop in the Last Frontier.

"Excellent Accommodations in Anchorage!"

We loved our stay at The Lakefront Anchorage. There is nothing like enjoying a drink on the patio and watching the seaplanes. The shuttle drivers were very friendly, funny and seemed to know everything about Anchorage. It was a great surprise to find out that there were daily shuttles to downtown. The service we received was the best! Thank you for making our trip so enjoyable!

Excellent location, beautiful property located on the lake. Excellent restaurants and back deck. A very nice stay. We loved sitting on the back deck watching the sea planes take off and land. Excellent menus in your restaurants. Large parking lot.
