I stayed here with my family for a night. We chose this hotel for its downtown location (though Anchorage is a pretty quiet place and you have to change your perception of what downtown looks like). The other hotel with a similar location was the Hilton, and suffice to say, this hotel was slightly cheaper and offers free wifi.
The hotel is small and likewise offers a homely atmosphere. The main door is locked at night (just like a good old house). The staff who runs the cafe also runs the reception desk. There is no airconditioning since the weather is cold enough at night to provide airconditioning.
The rooms were a little small for my liking, probably because of the age of the hotel, but we didn't have too many problems there. Continental breakfast is free and offers a decent spread.
One not-so-nice thing about our stay was that our room faced the road, so at night some rowdy young men disrupted our sleep slightly.
Overall, it is a little pricey considering we stayed during the peak summer period, but it makes a good one or two night stayover location.
