The Lakefront Anchorage

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff was friendly, the hotel is kept in good condition and provides a quiet, nice atmosphere to relax.

The proximity to the airport is wonderful. The view from the lounge and restaurant was beautiful although the fog did keep some of the float planes from taking off, the weather became better as the day progressed. Would definitely stay there again.

Hotel was overpriced. The staff was ok. The HVAC in our room did not work and we talked to another person at the hotel and she had the same problem. We would not stay there again.

Room smelled musty. Couldn't close the drapes because of window air conditioning unit. A problem in Alaska when it's light out till 11 pm. Walked into the room and a dirty black sock was lying on the floor. Gross!! I highly recommend you finding a different hotel to stay in. Also got charged $ 380 for Saturday night when I ask reservations who said $240 for Saturday night. Maybe the mark up was because I went thru Orbitz?

Awesome night for a fair price. Will definitely stay here again

Awesome customer service! Rooms were cleaned and very comfortable. Experienced problem with slow elevator in lobby. However, discovered the other elevator which was much closer to our room. I would highly recommend this hotel.

A little bit of noise from the seaplanes, And not the hottest water for the shower. But overall a good place fun bar...

Only there one nite so not a lot of time spent here but was very nice

We've stayed at the Millennium several times in past years and it was a great hotel. It must have changed ownership or management because it's now run-down with a staff who's not too sure what's going on. Many customers were complaining about the state of the hotel and its services. The dining was even worse. We couldn't get the attention of a waiter even after 15 minutes of waiting at a dirty table, which we finally had to bus ourselves. The room prices, however, have not declined with the hotel. We paid more for our mediocre room here than we did for a Jr. Suite at the Captain Cook Hotel in the heart of Anchorage. We won't make this mistake again. We'll be staying downtown.

Room/bed was visually clean but had a musty old stale odor. The whole property was covered in gnats.

This hotel met all our expectations. It was clean, comfortable and the rooms are fairly spacious. The in-room refrigerator was a plus. The lounge has very good food. It was convenient driving distance to downtown Anchorage and Chugach State Park.

The hotel was clean, with very comfortable beds. The room was warm, very warm! Others have mentioned the 4th floor was warm and it surely is. Open the window and turn off the heater on this floor. The stay was comfortable otherwise.

Room heating not controlled. Room very hot even in winter stay. Refused to refund prepayment and let us move to a different place. Also, elevators not well maintained.

This is the best hotel I have had in a very long time for this price. It is one I will stay in again. Clean with modern updates.

Very comfortable convenient place to fly into when wanting to get started seeing Alaska. Employees were informative about where and how to get started with our adventures!

Hotel excepts pets, so we always try to stay there.

Close to the airport. Great bar on the premisis. Nice walking trail outside the hotel

Desk clerk gave us the wrong room keys, which meant a long walk back to the front desk to get the right ones. We were then informed their key machine was down and we'd have to wait for housekeeping to let us in. They promised to deliver the key under the door during the night but never did. The room was very hot and we couldn't get the air conditioner to work. The whole experience may have been a fluke, but I'm not likely to give them a second chance.

Got a great deal for this hotel with stacked promotions, the free hotel shuttle picked us up after our 1:30AM arrival, and the staff was cheerful and efficient in getting us checked into our rooms. The hotel is also very close to the airport, so that helped. Bed was comfy, room was clean, plus vending machines provided a late night snack.

desk staff stated if we wanted all thye amenities like complimentary breakfast etc we needed to book with other than Orbitz! This was stated twice by two different desk staff two days apart. I told both after this statement that they were making money on an otherwise to be an unoccupied room! Also their attitude might be at least a partial reason fo less than full occupancy!
