There is no better place to experience the grandeur of Alaska than from the famed Hotel Captain Cook. Anchorage’s only luxury hotel and Alaska’s only Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide member, this Old World accommodation—named for the legendary 18th century sea captain who first mapped the state’s jagged coastline—is the perfect downtown launching pad for any Alaskan adventure.
Hotel Captain Cook has set the bar for luxury and elegance in Alaska since its establishment in 1965. Standing tall within downtown Anchorage, all of the 546 rooms and suites within the hotel’s three towers offer panoramic views of Cook Inlet, the Chugach Mountains, and the distant Mt. McKinley. Clean and spacious, each accommodation reflects differing aspects of Alaska’s beauty in its custom made furniture, deep jewel tone color palettes, and hints of nautical grandeur. The hotel’s 96 exclusive suites are ideal for those looking for additional living and sleeping areas, as well as complimentary Athletic Club access, supplementary dining amenities, and utmost seclusion. The Captain’s Deck, perched on the 16th and 17th levels of Tower II, boast impeccable concierge service and the finest apartments and views in the city, as do the five Crow’s Nest Presidential Suites on the 19th floor of Tower III, which have been vetted by the Secret Service and multiple celebrities and dignitaries for their grandeur and expansive luxury.
Hotel Captain Cook offers four distinct dining options, each celebrated for its use of locally sourced Alaskan ingredients. Crow’s Nest, Anchorage’s only AAA-four-diamond restaurant, offers a blend of French and New American cuisines concocted by Chef de Cuisine Reuben Gerber and the largest wine collection in the state, while Fletcher’s is known for its more casual seafaring pub-style ambiance and its eclectic menu of local specialties like Alaskan Halibut Piccata and Alaskan micro brews. After a taste of local delights, head to the cozy fireplace at Whale’s Tail Bistro and Wine Bar, Alaska’s first self-serve wine bar where 32 wine vintages are on tap to try to one’s content.
While Hotel Captain Cook is within easy access to Anchorage’s surrounding natural beauty, there is plenty to do and see within the comfort of the property. For instance, the hotel’s Athletic Club is one of the most extensive fitness centers in the city, touting separate facilities for men and women, and fully-equipped with cardio classes, massages, and Jacuzzis, and Alaskan mud spa treatments. Also located at the lobby level is an entire shopping arcade featuring everything from fine jewelry shops and nautical art galleries to sidewalk cafes and beauty salons. Don’t miss looking through Captain Cook’s personal art collection, whose displayed pieces of stained glass, paint woodwork, and sculpture help tell the story of the hotel’s legendary namesake and his love of nature and the unconquerable Alaskan spirit.Request Information
