If you would appreciate what it was to stay in an Alaskan owned, operated, and patronized hotel 110 years ago during the gold rush days, the Van Gilder would be your choice. This place is outstanding. Down to the last detail, the place is done to period, yet with enough amenities for comfort. The service is attentive, the location superb, the guests a nice mix of outsiders and Alaskans, and the value can't be beat. I had a wonderful stay! The other reviews that may find fault with, say, 'the thread-count of the linens'...GET OVER IT - YOU'RE IN ALASKA FOR GOD'S SAKE! I live in Alaska, this place is a gem; not phony hospitality and decorations, but real Alaska!
