There's not a lot WRONG with the Westmark Anchorage... but there's not a lot particularly RIGHT about it either.
On the positive side, the hotel is centrally located downtown and the bedrooms are both spacious and clean. Cleanliness is especially important to my wife and I in the bathroom. (It was also nice to have a small refrigerator in the room, but this no longer qualifies a hotel as above average.)
Another positive which stands out at the Westmark is the staff. They are both helpful (e.g., in direction-giving) and polite.
On the negative side, the Westmark is somewhat dated and yet the prices don't reflect that. Asking $200-300 per night for this property is simply too much. (There are simply too many other hotels -- newer and in more vibrant parts of town -- that offer cooked-to-order breakfasts (and sometimes dinner as well) at rates lower than those of the Westmark.)
