The Lakefront Anchorage
Distinct Alaskan styling throughout the inside and out set the stage for The Lakefront Anchorage. Resting on the shore of Lake Spenard next to Lake Hood, The Lakefront Anchorage is the only hotel in Anchorage that is located on a lake and the sights are absolutely stunning. This scenic hotel near Lake Hood and the Anchorage Airport has daily flightseeing and fishing pickups from its own dock. It is peaceful to sit out there and watch the floatplanes with the Chugach Mountains in the background.
Getting here is easy: the hotel is located near Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, less than one mile away and downtown Anchorage is just four miles away if you want to see even more of Anchorage. At The Lakefront you’ll be at the center of all the action, right next to Lake Hood—the largest and busiest seaplane base in the world, with some 250 planes landing each day. There’s plenty to see and do near our hotel, including exploring Earthquake Park, the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail or Kincaid Park for a hike or visiting the nearby Aviation Museum.
The rooms at The Lakefront Anchorage are clean and cozy and well appointed. Choose from the 350-square foot deluxe room or the 740-square foot McKinely Suite. This is by far one of the most popular hotels in Anchorage, especially for sportsmen and women, and it is one of the nicest.
The Lakefront Anchorage is home to a great restaurant called The Flying Machine with various tasty offerings that showcase Alaska’s bounty of seafood or some excellent quality burgers if that’s your preference.
