My family and I stay here quite a bit, especially during hockey season. Our rooms are always clean and comfortable and the staff is the best!!! Very accommodating. The Lakefront is in a convenient location as well.

The Lakefront is my new favorite hotel in Anchorage. I stayed here with my young children over Thanksgiving. The staff is phenomenal, particularly at The Flying Machine restaurant. The exterior looks a bit like a lesser motel, but don't be fooled, the inside is a first class hotel all the way. The McKinley Suites are exceptionally spacious and well appointed,...

Our first impression was awesome when Marcus picked us up at the airport. What a great guy. He told us a lot about the hotel and restaurants and also some driving and weather info, took care of all our luggage and brought it into the hotel. When we got to the hotel we had a very friendly greeting from Bethany...

Called for a shuttle and the employee was friendly and told me ten minutes. Called back 30 minutes later to find that it had JUST left. When I checked in, she didn't explain the hotel or give me a good "welcome to Anchorage" like I would receive at many other hotels....friendly but not helpful at all. The room looked nicely...
