About Anchorage

Anchorage is a cosmopolitan city with all the amenities you would expect in a city of 300,000 people. Restaurants, museums, and shops are just a few blocks from the Hotel Captain Cook. The Alaska Native Heritage Center is an exciting place where all people can come to expand their understanding of Alaska's first people. The expanded Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center features permanent and traveling exhibits of art, history, and science.

Even with all the modern conveniences of a large city you can get a taste of the Alaska outdoors right outside your hotel. Stroll, jog, or ski the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail or Chester Creek Trail, each accessible just 3 blocks from the Hotel Captain Cook. The Municipality of Anchorage grooms these lit, multi-use trails for cross-country skiing in the winter.
