The Lakefront Anchorage completes final phase of renovations

Millennium Hotels and Resorts continues its commitment to U.S. properties.

NEW YORK - As part of multi-million dollar investments by Millennium Hotels and Resorts across many of its 14 North American properties, the brand announces the completion of the third and final phase of refurbishments at The Lakefront Anchorage, formerly Millennium Alaskan Hotel Anchorage. This is the fifth Millennium hotel in the U.S. that has seen extensive upgrades in the past two years, including ONE UN New York, Millennium Hotel Minneapolis, Millennium Harvest House Boulder and most recently The McCormick Scottsdale. Additional properties scheduled for renovations this year include Millennium Biltmore Los Angeles and Millennium Hotel Buffalo.

The only lakeside hotel in Anchorage, The Lakefront Anchorage overlooks Lake Spenard and Lake Hood, the world's largest and busiest floatplane base. The hotel is ideally situated for exploring Alaska, as it is just ten minutes from downtown Anchorage with a plethora of activities nearby including fishing, hunting and hiking. The Lakefront Anchorage is also the official host hotel for the renowned Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

The last series of hotel-wide changes included a full remodel of all 248 guest rooms as well as building exterior upgrades. Rooms now evoke an upscale Alaskan lodge feel with soft tones and beautiful wood accents. Junior and one bedroom suites feature separate living and dining areas and a fully equipped kitchenette while one bedroom suites also offer a cozy fireplace for the cold Alaskan winters. Hotel corridors showcase Alaska's wildlife and landscape by Denali National Park's award-winning photographer, Jimmy Tohill.  

The first two phases of refurbishments were to the public spaces, including the lobby as well as the Fancy Moose Lounge, Flying Machine Restaurant, and the seasonal outdoor Deck at Lake Hood. In addition, The Lakefront's entire conference space featuring 6,000 square feet of meetings and event rooms was also re-done.

"Anchorage is a wonderfully breathtaking destination and we're pleased to present newly updated rooms to our guests, just in time for the busy summer season," said Colin Wang, Vice President Operations, North America. "These enhancements come on the heels of another signature location's renovation, The McCormick Scottsdale. This is just the beginning; we look forward to unveiling the new look of our other properties as part of the company's ongoing commitment and investment in our U.S. portfolio."
