Fodor's Expert Review Westmark Baranof Hotel

127 N. Franklin St., Juneau, Alaska, 99801, USA

The Baranof has long been Juneau's most prestigious address; it's as close to a big-city boutique hotel as you're going to find in Southeast Alaska. Tasteful woods and period lamps in the dark art-deco lobby create an old-money atmosphere reminiscent of 1939, when the hotel first opened. A small lounge, the Bubble Room, is a popular spot for legislators when they're in town, and the attached Capital Café serves a decent breakfast. Rooms on the front side have the best views, but street noise may keep you awake at the lower levels.
