Located at the west end of Anchorage’s vibrant downtown district, the Copper Whale Inn is a cozy retreat at the end of a busy day.

The Atmosphere

With beautiful views of Cook Inlet and access to shopping, fine arts, and activities, a stay at Copper Whale Inn makes for the perfect introduction or ending to your Alaska adventure. Feel spoiled by the intimate setting and attention to detail at the inn, which is the former residence of prominent Anchorage physician Joe Romig in the 1920’s and 30’s. Lovingly renovated to reflect both the past and a renewal of the present, the inn is a charming and unpretentious place to savor the character of the Last Frontier.

Your Room

With three room types available (suite, private bath, shared bath) in two buildings, Copper Whale guests can be assured of an overnight experience that fits their travel style. All rooms feature attention to the smallest details, from fluffy comforters to local art. Enjoy the lush garden full of native plants, or sit on the front patio with a beverage and watch the bustle of Alaska’s largest community.

Food and Drink

Offering guests a delicious light breakfast each morning, complete with smoked salmon, meats, cheeses, cereals, fresh juices, and locally-roasted coffee, it’s easy to fuel up for a day of Alaska adventure. For lunch or dinner, Copper Whale staff can recommend several fine dining establishments located just steps away from the inn.
