The biggest city in Alaska boasts the famous Iditarod Sled Dog Race and has an abundance of oil companies nearby, which makes convenience a big plus for our Anchorage hotel guests. Close to hospitals, local businesses and annual events, this Anchorage hotel has it all. Were close to major oil companies and have a great location right off the highway. Tourists and medical travelers alike enjoy the warm, welcome atmosphere of our hotel. With a friendly staff, spacious rooms and luxurious bedding, were proud to be your home away from home. The Iditarod Sled Dog Race and Fur Rendezvous are big reasons why many people come to Anchorage, but theres also an abundance of outdoor recreation available. From sightseeing to hiking and fishing, outdoor activities reign supreme in this region. The nearby Alaska Native Heritage Center is a must-see for history buffs and any travelers looking for a slice of culture. At our Anchorage hotel, we also welcome many business travelers from around the world. Some of our regular guests are in town for work with BP Global, CH2M HILL and of course various other oil companies. Were also a favorite for employees of Providence Alaska Native Medical Center. Our service men and women traveling for business at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson choose us because of our well-appointed rooms and quality amenities, including our small banquet rooms for meetings. Whether youre visiting Anchorage for business or for a once in a lifetime vacation, it matters where you stay. Were proud to offer our guests the best in service and quality. From a weekend trip to extended stays, we aim to make your visit special. Book your clean and comfortable room at the BEST WESTERN Golden Lion Hotel for a great value and a fantastic vacation!

Nice Rooms - Terrible restaurant experience

The rooms were fine, but I did have some problem getting the AC to come on. The wait staff (one woman) was terrible. She messed up the order, seemed annoyed that we were there and I had to track her down to order dessert. She was in the kitchen talking to her friends. Other than that, our stay was fine.

Leaky faucet in tub

The room was clean but the hotel was loud, and when I walked in I heard the leaky bath tub faucet and it smelled stale like there was attempt to mask a cigarette smell, even though it was clearly labeled a not smoking room. For the cost of almost 100.00 I thought the room was not up to par.
