Historic Anchorage Hotel
Ranked #22 of 74 Hotels in Anchorage
Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

We had a very small room with a view to a roof. The room was clean and comfortable. On the other hand, we had to listen to the gift shop music (which was below our room) during the whole day starting at 8am closing 11pm!
Breakfast was very simple but included.
The staff was very nice and helpful. The main advantage of this hotel is its location. It is an easy walk to almost everything in downtown!

A well maintained property with a wonderful patina of age, this was a pleasant start to our week in Alaska. If you're looking for something less than the Hilton next door but more than a b-and-b, you'll be comfy here. Small gym (at least they have one) and formula breakfast, but that's not why you're there. Nice staff too. This one comes highly recommended.

Room Tip: Oddly, the hotel did not come up on our GPS but it's very easy to find from the airport (or almo...

Large well appointed charming suite with great proximity to crafts market and free weekend metered parking. Good walking distance to all you want. Bike rentals, shopping, restaurants, all out the door within a block. Luscious scented toiletries, clean and cozy, though needs softer/newer mattresses. Appreciated the quieting pedestal fan to catch a cool bay breeze yet reduce city/train whistle noise. Breakfast typical continental, only hot item being the waffle maker, bar stools hightop tables, nothing special.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel can view the sidewalk below, the train station, port and bay, backside views a bu...

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.
