Good Morning Walter195, Thank you for contacting The Lakefront Anchorage hotel. PHLfan is correct! During the winter months noise from the float planes is at a minimum if at all non-existent. Throughout the summer months float planes have contributed to some noise disturbances for our light sleeping guests. They can start flying as early as 7AM until possibly 7PM at night. If you would like any further insight please do not hesitate to give our Front Desk Staff a call at 907.243.2300. Kindest Regards, Jeanette P. Front Office Manager

What is recommended for getting from hotel to cruise port?
The train is another option, if the departure times work out right. Alaska Railways operates both to Whittier and to Seward.
