This is considered the best Hotel in Ketchikan, this is word of mouth by locals so I cna't compare. It sits up on a hill the overlooks the historic district and channel. Out the back window are beutiful snow-evergreen covered mountains, so no bad rooms.
The rooms are average, nothing special, they could use some updating, our tv was tube style if that says anything. They are large thought and have lots of windows and open all the way for ventilation.
The lobby is like a museum of Tlingit culture, the Tlinglits are the indigenous people of South East Alaska. Their artifacts and art are the most beautiful in my opinion.
The resteraunt is pretty good, and there is a coffee shop in the lobby serving locally roasted coffee.
Interestingly there is a tram that takes you down the hill to town or you can walk a nice trail if you like. Yes you can drive if you want but it is not as fun.
