    3*** "Rustic" Accommodations

    by

    This hotel is just a mile from the airport, located on Lake Spenard, the busiest floatplane lake in North America. The lobby has a rustic Alaskan atmosphere with great displays of indigenous marine and wildlife. The rooms are large and comfortable and they just finished a re-model the beginning of last summer so it still looks fresh and new. There is a restaurant on site which serves Alaskana fare (lots of delicious seafood options) and the bar, which serves appetizers and "bar food" (burgers, etc), has about 10 beers on tap including several which are locally brewed. In the summer there is a patio which overlooks the lake so you can dine while watching the floatplanes and the great sunsets... that is, when the sun actually sets! (Thankfully, the rooms have wonderful lightblocking drapes so you can get a good nights sleep!) There is a healthclub with a jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. They also have a complimentary shuttle to the airport, the downtown area, and the Dimond Center shopping mall which saves you from having to find and pay for parking if you do have a vehicle. Oh, yeah, and they're pet friendly! The hotel has been the headquarters for the Iditarod dog-sled race since it opened.

    Unique Quality: The many displays of the various marine and wildlife that are from the area are amazing as is the history of the Iditarod which is everywhere.

    A Past Favorite of Mine

    by

    I pass through Anchorage quite a bit, travelling to and from my home in Kodiak. My favorite hotel for quick overnight stays used to be the Millenium. Close to the airport, with good shuttle bus service, it was like a home away from home for me.

    SADLY, MY MOST RECENT VISIT (10/2011) HAS CONVINCED ME I WILL NOT STAY HERE AGAIN. Still haven't fixed up the rooms - worn out beyond acceptable levels. Shuttle bus took over an hour to pick me up at the airport - with no apologies. Staff doesn't make eye contact or conversation. There is something amiss here and not worth spending another dime here.

    Nicely decorated and equiped rooms, great common areas with a high end lodge feel (read - lots of stuffed trophies), a quality restaurant, and a large and friendly bar. Rooms are decent sized and each has a love seat and coffee table, a nice spot to rest up and catch up on the news. My wife loves their soaps and shampoos.

    Like any Anchorage hotel, the price goes way up in the summer, but I still feel it is a good value year round.

    If I'm staying longer than overnight, I usually head to a downtown hotel as it is much easier to walk to a larger variety of restaurants and shops.

    Winter rates (Oct - April) around $100/night
    Summer rates (May-Sep) around $200/night

    They do offer government, AAA & AARP discounts.

    On my most recent stay (April 2007), I couldn't help but notice the hotel is in need of refurbishing. Carpets are getting stained and worn in spot, wallpaper torn. Needs a general redo - perhaps they are planning it but doubt they would do it during summer busy season. I'm dropping my rating to just satisfactory until they fix her up.

    Just stayed again for two nights (November 2008) and they still haven't fixed her up. Still clean, but getting worn. Stained carpets,etc.

    Unique Quality: The bar at the Millenium is a great place to wind down in the evening. On a warm, sunny day, their outdoor patio overlooking Lake Hood with it's many float planes coming and going, is a great place to hang out. The bar is next to the restaurant, so good food is available as well until 10 PM.

    Directions: Corner of Spenard & Intl Airport Rd.

    January/Febraury 2004

    by

    Returning from Girdwood, I was looking for a place to stay in Anchorage. (VT has really changed the way I travel). I chose the Millenium because I thought travellers might stay there, and location.

    Millenium Hotels are a worldwide chain, but the one in Anchorage is decorated with much Alaskan Wildlife. It is not too expensive, and it is comfortable.

    Unique Quality: The one nice thing about the room was a little seat by the makeup area. I thought this was a thoughtful touch.

    They also have a steam room in the fitness center. This is the kind that you have to set the timer and wait for the room to heat up. So start the timer, then get ready while the room heats up.

    I really enjoy a steam room, it is much different than a sauna or a jacuzzi in the way it relaxes you. They are not as popular as they once were, I guess it is a matter of fashion.

    Directions: I had a room facing the lake/airport.

    The best thing about this hotel, is sitting on the back deck, watching the seaplanes land on nearby Lake Hood.
