We stayed at the SpringHill Suites Anchorage University Lake for 2 nights in July 2011 and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a great value for hotel in Anchorage (which is pretty pricey during the summer tourist season). They have a AAA rate which we booked and it was very reasonable.
The location of the hotel may not be in downtown but the free shuttle bus goes everywhere, including midtown, downtown etc.(with advance reservation). We took it from the airport on our night of arrival so that we did not have to rent a car until the next morning (since we arrived really late anyway) and saved at least 1 day of car rental. Then the next morning we just took the shuttle to the airport to pick up the rental car.
Also, I was pleasantly surprised by the bag of chocolate covered raisins that the hotel staff gave us upon check in as a Marriott Rewards member. That 8 oz bag of chocolate covered raisins lasted us the entire trip in Alaska and accompanied us to many hikes!
This hotel is contemporary in design (which I like) and the free breakfast is more than sufficient. I am glad I followed the tripadvisor advise and booked this place.
