Rooms accessed via long corridors.

A number of guests are not keen on the long corridors that lead to and from guestrooms at The Lakefront Anchorage. According to reports, a visit to the front desk or hotel restaurants can be a lengthy affair depending on which room you're assigned.

Air conditioning not always effective.

Some guests find the in-room air conditioning system to be ineffective. While some guests report that units are unable to keep rooms to a comfortable temperature, others report that window drapes cover the unit when drawn, which can impact the effectiveness of the air conditioning.

Accessing the free Wi-Fi can be a slow process.

The hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi to all guests, but some struggle to access the internet. Reports suggest that the signal can be very slow in certain areas of the hotel, making the Wi-Fi virtually unusable.
