This is my favorite hotel in Anchorage.
It is located in downtown Anchorage and is within walking distance to the PAC (Performing Arts Center) and several good restaurants and bars.
The Captain Cook is the nicest hotel I have stayed at in Alaska - It is considered upscale for Anchorage/Alaska.
I stay here a couple of times each year. With that said, Anchorage does not really have any hotels that I would consider 5 star. If I can get a reservation at The Captain Cook for a decent price (regular room less then $99-$125 Fall/Winter/Spring) (Jr. Suite $125-175 Fall/Winter/Spring) I book it and I am very happy with the accommodations at that price point...if you need a hotel in the Summer expect to pay a premium; probably around $350.00+ for a basic room and at that price point you will probably be disappointed.
The captain Cook has a very nice restaurant at the top called the Crow's Nest (expensive) - I like to have coffee service and dessert or a glass of wine there. It also has a wine bar/bistro (Whale's Tail) and another pub type restaurant (Fletcher's) - I have not eaten at either of those two places. I have had breakfast in the 4th restaurant (The Café) - it is just "okay" and I can't recommend it.
The reason this hotel is my favorite is: the staff are usually very nice, the lobby is decorated very nicely during the holidays, the hotel is clean and the common areas are nice, I can park in the covered Captain Cook parking garage (sometimes it is included in the price of the room and sometimes it isn't - check the fine print) the location is perfect for downtown Anchorage, it is near some of my favorite restaurant and bars and within walking distance to the PAC.
