When you are traveling with a group, have only one or two days in Ankorage and are trying to determine whether you need a hire vehicle, you should refrain from renting. Ankorage is very easy to walk and everything you need is right in the city centre. Please also keep in mind that some rides will collect and return you free of charge (or have places in the city centre).
There is no charge for free parking outside the city centre of Anchorage. At Anchorage, the counters must be supplied with accommodation, and there is only a 2-hour period. If you drive to one of the downtown Anchorage hotels, it is not always free to park.
Even if you plan to travel with your rented vehicle during your trip to Alaska, please review the contract thoroughly, as most, if not all, rentals do not insure/cover your vehicle when driving on a dirt track, regardless of the type of policy you may have obtained.

4WD is a must in winters and not necessary in summers, unless you ride where the rented vehicle doesn't want you.
