“1st Night in Alaska”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Arrived hotel 10pm after 11 trip from Orlando, about 15 minute car ride from airport. Nice front desk clerk put us in room away from soccer tourney kids. Quiet, comfy room. Liked having 2 sink areas. Awesome breakfast to start our trip next AM. Located in Univ of AK area, very nice setting off the main roads.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from groups with kids for quiet night sleep

I originally chose this property because of the airport shuttle service but will definitely come back again because of their warm, friendly and welcoming service. We arrived at midnight and called the hotel for a shuttle pick up. The front desk associate, Norelle, who was so bright and welcoming told us that the driver will be there within 15 minutes. Exactly on time, our shuttle driver Jojo genuinely welcomed us again to Anchorage, and helped us with our luggage. He genuinely connected with us, providing tips on restaurant and places to go while in Anchorage. Check in was a breeze with Norelle, who was so intuitive with our needs. I was pleasantly surprised when he gave me 2 Hershey's Chocolate bars. He said as a Marriott Rewards Member, he is thankful for my loyalty. I was surprised as I did not provide my Marriott Rewards number in the reservation. He told me that he researched my name and found that I am a member. I understand that 2 chocolate bars may not be meaningful to some, but for me, it meant a lot for someone to do the research and acknowledge their guests. He provided us with extra towels, etc, The rooms are clean, modern and to Marriott standards. Breakfast was the usual fare- eggs, bread, beverages, etc. The fire pit , tables outside and efficient staff added to the enjoyable breakfast experience. The path way to the lake was also nice. Every one in the hotel, the day time front desk staff, the housekeepers, shuttle drivers (day and night) were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel also provided shuttle service to downtown with just an hour notice.I travel extensively and stayed in numerous hotels/brands. The amenities, food, rooms appear to be the same after a while but what makes the difference for me is the experience provided by the staff. Great job and Thanks to the Springhill Suites Anchorage University Lake. You made the difference!

The rooms are comfortable, clean, and modern with a couch, microwave, little fridge, and the rest of the normal amenities. The breakfast is plentiful and has many options. My favorite part was the walking path that goes around the lake.

Stayed at the executive suite at spring hill anchorage university. The rooms were very modern and well maintained. Nice king bed and separate sofa bed. Would have expected a slightly larger room for the price. Breakfast is decent but hours are limited - only till 9am on vacation is tough. No restaurant or room service for lunch or dinner though they have partnership for in room delivery with some restaurants.
Overall nice place to stay at anchorage wirh family.
Special call out to shayna at the front desk. Professional and friendly and super efficient. Thank u shayna

Some people complain about being a whole 15 minutes from downtown. Big deal. Not a whole lot going on downtown. You're going to Alaska for the scenery, right? This is about as scenic as it gets AND close to everything you need in Anchorage. The hotel's "backyard" is a nice size lake which can be circumnavigated by a brisk 30-minute power walk. The hotel is typical Springhill, but the public spaces are a notch above most I've seen. Can't really go wrong here.

Lovely spacious rooms and a beautiful location beside a lake. We really enjoyed staying here and found the staff friendly and helpful. Our only problem was that the breakfast finished at 9 prompt on weekdays and before that time, a lot of the food ran out and was not replenished. It was an excellent breakfast, though, but we nearly missed it all twice. The lake was lovely to walk around in the evening if you just wanted a little fresh air, and there were beavers to watch also. Mountain backdrop was beautiful.

Room Tip: To get a lake and mountain view, request with booking, also the view is best from the third floor.
