This is my first time at the Anchorage Airport. After a beautiful drive from Clear, AK to Anchorage I had enough time left to visit the Alaska Lounge in the South Terminal. Once you make it past security, stay to your right towards C-Gates.
The Alaska Lounge will be on your left just before Gate C1. You can take the stairs or the elevator up to the lounge on Level 3. Check-In was easy. I handed over my boarding pass, the agent scanned it and I was welcomed in.
The Alaska Lounge was pretty empty for a late Sunday evening. On the contrary, perfect for me, so I could pick where I wanted to seat. On your way to the check-in counter, you will pass a conference room on your left, which can be booked if you need one. Once you are checked in, you will find plenty of seating to your left. There is a TV corner all the way at the end of the left side of the lounge. The lounge is shaped as a long nature rectangle.
To the right, you find everything else. You will find the bar and snack buffet here, the restrooms and a business center. I settled down in the business center at one of the many desks which are separated by tempered glass. There is a printer/copier combo in the corner of the business center.
There is no real bar counter here. Just a small corner counter next to the snack area where you can order your drinks. There is a pretty good selection of complimentary drinks, like beer and wine. Premium Drinks, like spirits, can be purchased at the bar. However, I missed the cheese and celery they usually serve in an Alaska Lounge.
Near the snack-buffet is a wall in the middle of the lounge, which kinda separates the lounge. On top of it are monitors with flight information and below is a neat fireplace.
Along the long side of the lounge are big windows offering a good view of what’s going on at the airport. As it is a very small airport you can almost see all the action on the tarmac.
Power outlets are mostly at the seats along the windows and wall.
It’s a pretty good sized lounge for an airport this size. Service and staff were great. As mentioned I missed some of the usual snacks I already had my mind set to enjoy before arrival. The business center is really great and gives you an opportunity to get some work done.
