As both a domestic and international destination, the largest US state has excellent properties and this is our list of the best business hotels in Alaska.
Split between downtown and the water’s edge at Bootlegger’s Cove is the Marriott Anchorage Downtown. The high-rise, full service hotel tops 20 stories with views of the northern Rockie mountains in the distance.
The property offers meeting space, several on-site restaurants, and a variety of suites and standard guest rooms to suit all purposes. What makes the Marriott Anchorage Downtown one of the best hotels in Anchorage is its proximity to downtown, the airport, as well as leisure activities.
Dozens of restaurants are within walking distance and the Chugach National Forest is a worthwhile visitor destination, a short drive away. There’s no prettier view of Anchorage, Alaska than from high above the city looking over the water and mountains. As a Marriott, the hotel participates with the company’s Bonvoy loyalty program.

South of downtown and due east of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, the Embassy Suites by Hilton Anchorage is a modern take on a western classic. Modeled after a mountain lodge with heavy wood beams, glass, and fireplaces throughout the public areas, this hotel keeps the style of the western front while adding modern amenities.
No, that’s not a typo – the Dimond Center Hotel is named after the street its on, the mall its connected to, and a family of entrepreneurs that made their mark on Anchorage.
The property offers convenience for travelers visiting Anchorage for its busy cargo trade, international connections, and natural resources such as gold and oil (sadly, no diamonds.) Located in downtown, the hotel offers business travelers room service, several restaurants and bars on-site, meeting facilities and business amenities, as well as separate showers and tubs in each guest room.
Multilingual staff and concierge services make interactions painless and helpful for those visiting from abroad.
Shuttles to and from the airport are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Sheraton Anchorage Hotel & Spa was purpose built to serve business travelers. Upscale dining at the JADE grill is just part of the equation. The high rise tower overlooks Cook inlet waterway and the Chugach mountain range.
Just a ten-minute stroll to the Egan convention center (in summer, take a cab in winter) or the same distance to the Anchorage museum will keep visitors occupied before and after their meetings.
The fitness center is available 24/7 but the real treat is the “Ice Spa”, a relaxing way to relieve stress after business engagements in the city. The Sheraton has been recently renovated and the new rooms and suites reflect a modern take on the business hotel. Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and burn points for their stay and enjoy the benefits of elite status. To learn more about Bonvoy check out Suites and Lobbies detailed breakdown.
Some business travelers are on the road every week staying in some version of the same hotel. This is where a stay at The Lakefront Anchorage can be more like a vacation than a work trip. Combining the elements of a traditional Alaskan lodge, the scenic beauty of the natural surroundings, and refined guest experience will feel more like a retreat than a business hotel.
However, the Lakefront has the business traveler in mind. Flights can be tricky in and out of Alaska due to its unique geolocation, but the Lakefront allows guests to checkin whenever they like and honors their reservations for a full 24 hours. If a guest’s flight gets in at one in the morning, it’s likely their next departure is at three in the morning when they return home. Giving guests a full 24 hours makes it far easier for them to enjoy their stay rather than try to establish what they should do through the odd hours of the night after check out from their hotel but well before the departure of their next flight.
The hotel offers three stunning restaurants including The Deck on Lake Hood as well as room service and other convenient options.
