Copper Whale Inn History
Built in 1939 by local doctor Howard Romig, the main building is historic by Anchorage standards (the city was founded in 1915), and was the first architecturally designed home in the city. Our innkeepers love to discuss the inn's storied past and talk about the state's natural and cultural treasures.
More than 20 hours of daily sunlight attracts summer visitors to Anchorage, where museums and galleries, fine restaurants and a dynamic urban scene exist within minutes of outdoor activities, wildlife viewing and untamed wilderness. Day driving tours to Talkeetna, the Kenai Peninsula or Prince William Sound, flightseeing tours to Katmai, Lake Clark or Denali National Parks, hiking and biking on the Coastal Trail or in Chugach State Park offer the experience of a lifetime for guests of the Copper Whale Inn.
Our delicious continental breakfast buffet includes a wonderful variety of healthy and tasty options like whole grain breads, yogurts and fresh fruit, bagels, danish, streudel, cereals, juice, coffee & tea and local seasonal delicacies.
