320 W 5th Ave Ste 100, Anchorage, AK 99501
I have been to Sullivan's several times and I'm always impressed. Not only do I consider it the best in Anchorage, it's certainly one of the best resaurants I've been to in the country. Yes, it's expensive. The food is awesome though. Perfectly cooked steaks, fresh veggies, and sweet desserts. The service is always amazing. They check on you frequently without over doing it. My water glass is always full...a small but important detail. Even received a thank you card in the mail from our server. Expect to pay $100 for two with wine and dessert. Not the most private atmosphere with one common open area and a few booths on the sides. Good for groups and special occasions.

I've stayed here many times but the first time I almost didn't come back. I flew in late and called for the shuttle, but after waiting an hour and repeated calls, I decided to take a cab. The desk clerk was terrible and actually blamed me for the shuttle fiasco. Slowly the service has been improving here. Now when you go to the airport if the shuttle is going to be slow they pay for a cab ride. The rooms are BY FAR the best in the city with large tvs, plush beds, and of course the oversize tub. The location is somewhat strange being as it's part of the Dimond Center Mall parking lot, but the bus terminal is right outside and there is a movie theater in the mall. This could become the best value in Anchorage as prices are reasonable even in summer.
