“Good location”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

This hotel is in a good location and has a comfortable feel to it. The rooms are clean, a bit small and there is limited space to lay out your toiletries in the bathroom. The bed and pillows were quite comfortable. The breakfast served in the hotel was free, but limited, so we didn't eat there. The woman at the desk in the evening was lovely, the morning staff ok. We had no issues with the noise on the street, but also kept our windows closed. We liked the smallness of this hotel, without the big noisy hotel lobby that you get elsewhere.

My husband and I visit Alaska every year and will be coming again this September. Our first night in we stay at the Historic. We love it there. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It's in a perfect location, close to the Alaska railroad, lots of great restaurants and shopping. We have tried others and they were ok too but we just love the Historic much better. It has an amazing history too.

My husband and I stayed two nights at the beginning of a two week tour of Alaska. Loved the hotel. Excellent location near restaurants and the train station. We took a train up north and it was an easy 1 and a half block walk. Also loved the little breakfast area with interesting paintings by the owner's brother. Enjoyed it very much.

We had one night in Ancorage before heading to the Kenai Pennisula . We wanted to walk around downtown Ancorage, have a good meal and a good night's sleep. The Historic Ancorage is in the heart of town with several options foe dinner near by. There is no AC, however, we didn't need it the beds were very comfortable with great sheets. Breakfast was included but wasn't anything special. There is a beautiful bar area, however, it only serves as a breakfast area...could be a good addition.

Some of these reviews complain that the hotel is 'dated' or 'old'... The complainers shouldn't be surprised, it's in the name. I would stay there again and highly recommend this quirky, friendly, historic, clean hotel. The breakfast area is very cool, the old photos give a sense of time and place, and the rooms are big and clean. Sure it may be a little noisy outside... Its's downtown, so what do people expect?! Stay here when you come to Anchorage, you'll be glad you did if you like staying out of the boring, big chain hotels.

It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to stay is the oldest hotel in Anchorage. The hotel is very nicely renovated with all of the modern conveniences EXCEPT air conditioning. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room a bit small but comfortable. We were there during a bit of a warm spell. The room was warm but there was a fan, I had read other reviews so requested an off street room so street noise was not an issue. The hotel is in a great location. We could walk every where. We purchased a parking pass for a nearby lot from the front desk. The lot was convenient and much better than having search for street parking. This was overall a very positive experience. I would definitely recommend for a short stay.

Room Tip: Choose top floor, off street. There is an elevator.

We spent 2 nights here in early August. The room was comfortable, bathroom clean and spacious, but looked out over a painted bland brick walk with some sad forgotten pot plants on a shelf. Their wifi did not work, despite 3 requests at reception to reboot their server; we were on the second floor which the receptionist said was 'dodgy'. Didn't work for the 3 days we were there, unlike some extremely remote places elsewhere in Alaska! Breakfast included self serve waffles, good, and supermarket bread served still in its plastic bag, not good. Fairly poor breakfast options overall, sorry but they could do so much better. Summary, nice room, dreadful view, but worse, wifi and breakfast let it down.
