It is your basic overnight hotel. I would describe it like an old Hilton. We had spent the night here before a pre-cruise tour to Denali. Our impression is that pre-cruise overnight guests are a large part of their clientele.
One easy plug that I can give the Captain Cook is that they employ amazingly friendly staff.
This huge hotel is fabulous. This was our first stop on our 15 day Alaska land and sea vacation in August. The hotel is lovely and has everything. Cafe, restaurants, gift shops, boutique, and more. The room was huge and well appointed. The bed was super comfy and we had a fantastic view of the city. We were in Tower 2. The people were nice and gave us information for things to do in the area since we did not have a car. The visitor center is about 8 block walk and easy to do . There you can get free info and shuttles to many attractions. The food was very good but very very expensive. Most meals 25 and up. This hotel is in the center of the city where you can walk to many shops, boutiques, food and drink. We were there on a Monday and we couldn't get anywhere to eat without a reservation. They were all full. If you could make one as soon as you get there or before if possible during peak season July-August. Still expensive most places.
