The Lakefront Anchorage

Set on the shore of Lake Spenard, The Lakefront Anchorage offers modern décor accented with classical hints of Alaska. Nearby is Lake Hood, the largest and busiest base for seaplanes on the planet with roughly 250 floatplanes arriving and departing daily.

Amenities at The Lakefront Anchorage

With a free 24-hour shuttle from the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport just a mile away, and downtown Anchorage four miles out, The Lakefront Anchorage ensures convenience at every level. Additional features like the Ask Alfred Children Program and daily flightseeing and fishing pickups from the hotel dock add to its upscale amenities.

Dining at The Lakefront Anchorage

The onsite Flying Machine Restaurant and Fancy Moose Lounge enhances this Last Frontier experience with delicious meals, rich wood and wildlife trophies. Classic American fare with an Alaskan twist is served, with options like a bison burger or jumbo king crab legs.

Dining is accompanied by the unique experience of viewing the floatplanes coming and going off the hotel’s dock every day, as well as the serenity of Lake Spenard with the majestic Chugach Mountains behind.
