Getting to the Egan Center: Driving and Parking

The Egan Convention Center is located in downtown Anchorage at 555 W. 5th Ave and is ~6 miles from the Ted Stephens International Airport.  The Hilton is located two short blocks from the Egan Center at 500 W. 3rd Ave.  Unfortunately, the Hilton does not offer a shuttle service but here are some suggestions for travel between the airport and downtown below:

 

Transportation in Anchorage: 

Renting a car:
You can get them onsite at the airport, but you should only rent a car if you intend to make serious use of it—after all, if you're renting it for less than a week, rates typically start at about $70 a day, and that's before parking ($5 to $12 a night at hotels) and gas (these days, about $2.69 a gallon).

The number 7 bus travels between the downtown transit center (6th ave, between H and G streets) and the domestic (south) terminal hourly. Monday through Friday the service starts around 6:45am and operates until approximately 10pm. On Saturdays it runs between 8am and 8pm, and on Sundays between 10am and 6pm. Please check the schedule
