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. There are 15 unique guest rooms, and a lovely common area for everyone’s enjoyment.
More than 19 hours of daily sunlight attracts summer visitors to Anchorage, where museums and galleries, fine restaurants and a dynamic urban scene exist alongside outdoor activities, wildlife viewing and untamed wilderness. Our sister company, Salmon Berry Tours, can help you plan and book the holiday of a lifetime! Day 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, all offer experiences of a lifetime for guests of the Copper Whale Inn.
Our complimentary continental breakfast buffet includes a wonderful variety of healthy and tasty options like yogurts and fresh fruit, bagels and pastries, cereals and granola, meats and cheeses, dried and fresh fruits, juice, tea and locally roasted coffee. For lunch or dinner, try downtown Anchorage’s selection of fine eateries, most of which are an easy walk from the Inn.
