Good business / family hotel in downtown Anchorage
A really nice hotel complex in the downtown area, within walking distance to many restaurants and pubs and the mall. The room is average in size, but not at all cramped, and very comfortable bed. Many comments have mentioned that the hotel is out-dated and needs refurbishing. I would not say that, I did not notice this. The room furnishings are perfectly fine. The spa is very good - large selection of cardio and weights, a very large dry and wet sauna, a lounge area with access to newspapers and magazines, and a co-ed large whirlpool / Jacuzzi, swimming pool. There are also several restaurants / pubs in the building all reasonably priced. The restaurant on the top - Crow's Nest - is fine dining and more expensive. Would stay again . Mind you the prices in off season (which is went I went for business) are less than half the price during summer months, so this may affect your decision.

Hotel Captain Cook, Anchorage
why I should spend my time to reconfirm my reservation. they charged me additional parking fee even though my reservation included free parking. when I received my credit billing record, it was terrible to me. I called the hotel account and I heard my confirm number of Expedia by them. and they recommend me to call responded kindly but didn't confirm what is status from terrible Hotel Captin Cook.

Enjoyed my stay
The only reason why i gave a 3 on cleanliness and condition is because they are going through renovations in the lobby and the in tower 2 on the 17th floor the roof was leaking in the common area.
