Plush beds an indoor pool and a downtown location a mile from the Alaska Railroad draw our guests to the non-smoking Marriott Anchorage Downtown which also offers a hot tub. The 20-floor Marriott has 395 spacious rooms all with oversized picture windows that frame striking views of downtown Anchorage the Chugach Mountains and Cook Inlet. That bed looks mighty inviting: It has a thick mattress and 300-thread-count sheets. Other room amenities include coffee/tea makers Wi-Fi (for a fee) and premium cable TV. An Arctic blast or grizzly bear will not stop you from a swim and soak because the pool and hot tub are indoors. The hotel also has a fitness center parking (for a fee) and cafe with Alaskan fare. The Marriott is in downtown Anchorage two blocks north of Delaney Park five blocks southwest of City Trolley Tours a half-mile southeast of Oscar Anderson House and the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and a mile southwest of the Alaska Railroad. If you're driving from Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport the hotel is six miles northeast. Convenient to downtown attractions the Marriott Anchorage Downtown also pampers our guests with plush beds an indoor pool and hot tub.
