Overnight Accommodations

Hotel Key

The Food Safety and Sanitation Program provides regulatory oversight of the food served and pools/spas at public accommodations.

These facilities need to meet DEC requirements for drinking water and wastewater. If you are planning to serve food or have a pool or spa, contact your local Environmental Health Officer.

Please contact the Better Business Bureau if you have concerns regarding overnight accommodations, and/or the Municipality of Anchorage if your accommodation is/will be located within the Municipality of Anchorage.
