view web site ›'s insider take:

Named for legendary explorer James Cook, the 547-room Captain Cook is Alaska's landmark hotel, and as the tallest building around, it's very hard to miss. Inside, the vibe is Old World meets Dallas, with doormen in top hats and lots of overstuffed leather furniture. The rooms are pleasant, if a little corporate in style, and quite a bargain for downtown, especially since the hotel is within walking distance of nearly all of Anchorage's main attractions. For the best views of Cook Inlet or the Chugach Mountains, spring for a suite on a high floor. There's a full-service athletic club (a rarity for Alaska hotels), and the top-floor Crow's Nest restaurant stocks over 10,000 bottles of wine (the state's most extensive selection) to pair with French-American fusion cuisine and spectacular panoramic views. The bar has plenty of comfy chairs and is quiet enough that you don't have to shout to carry on a conversation. Keep in mind that while the Captain Cook is the grandest of Anchorage's hotels and the first choice of visiting bigwigs, it also attracts a lot of package tours and can get very busy.—Edward Readicker-Henderson
