This is an older property but the location can't be beat! They have kept it nicely updated and the lobby bar is lots of fun. The food in the cafe was excellent!
Staff was friendly but not very well trained. One young man took our luggage to our room, waited on us in the cafe for breakfast, brought us our room service, and helped us with a question at the front desk. He worked on a fishing boat last summer. The maintenance person who happened to be near the front desk was very helpful when we checked in, knowing more than the desk clerk.
Our room was on a corner and had incredible views of both the channel/harbor and the soaring mountain and waterfalls behind us. This is an older property and I suspect the bathrooms were retrofitted. We had a suite and the bathroom was tucked off a corner of the living room and was smaller than some of the closets. It was well appointed but nothing fancy.
The one suggestion I would make for the Baranof would be to update their beds. At $250 a night it seems like a pillowtop mattress would be appropriate.More
