The Captain Cook Hotel is one of Anchorage's most comfortable hotels, situated in the bustling heart of the city. It is a convenient base camp for Alaskan adventures and offers the best in retail, cultural and natural highlights.
Guests can marvel at the adventures of Captain James Cook, depicted in the hotel’s private art collection, which includes stained glass, paintings and sculptures that all tell the captain’s story.
The ground floor has a charming foyer containing some interesting bits of Captain Cook memorabilia, a number of lounges and gift shops. The Crow's Nest restaurant, located on the top floor of the building, is one of the finest restaurants in the city and also boasts some of the best views. The hotel also offers an English pub, an Italian restaurant and a coffee shop.
This award-winning hotel has a total of 547 rooms and suites, each with a view of either the Chugach Mountains or Cook Inlet. Most rooms have generously sized bed and all the facilities you would expect from a hotel of this quality. Blackout drapes ensure a solid night’s sleep and hypoallergenic bedding is available on request.
Located close to restaurants and cafes, the hotel is a 2-minute walk from Oscar Anderson House Museum. Anchorage International Airport is 7 miles away and about a 20-minute drive. The start of The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is a just 10-minute drive away.
Food and Drink
The Crow’s Nest serves French and New American cuisine with a sweeping view of the city. Fletchers conjures up Italian cuisine in a classic English pub setting. The Whale’s Tail dishes up sharing plates and handcrafted cocktails. Breakfast food and healthy options can be found in The Café, and guests can stop by The Cubby for speciality coffee and breakfast on the go.
Facilities and Activities
Guests have access to a full-service exercise room, swimming pool, sauna, solarium and steam room.
This is one of Alaska's finest hotels and boasts one of Anchorage's best restaurants. It is large, however, and the slightly dated rooms will not be to everyone's taste, though the excellent downtown location with views in all directions make up for this.
