Reviewed 26 February 2014

Lucky enough to spend a couple of nights here. Location is within walking distance of museums and restaurants including Humpy's where the beer and music were excellent!
The staff were helpful and friendly. We were upgraded to the corner room (301) above the bear and one of the prime locations in town for the dog sled races. Breakfast was basic and self service but satisfying. The street noise, as others have mentioned was significant with snow ploughs working in the early hours but the beds were comfortable and it didn't prevent us sleeping. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Loved being on the street - lots to see but this is a busy road junction so expect some noise, or as...

I enjoyed the stay very comfortable and nice room. They keep it older looking to fit the age of the place. Fun that it could be haunted tho i didnt experience anything paranormal either time I stayed there. Guess im not intuned to that side :) tho many people have. They have a book to prove it.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days in Feb 2014. The hotel is downtown, close to lots of restaurants, museums, etc. It has all the usual charms and idiosyncrasies of an old building. This is why we stayed here. Our room was right on the corner (behind the bear). There is a fair amount of street noise and people passing by talking late at night, but many city people are used to this. If not earplugs would solve it. The bed was comfortable. The staff is helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the corner would get a good cross breeze in summer.

Local Alaskan in town on winter business. Appreciated the central location of this hotel. Really friendly staff who upgraded me to a suite for no charge. Great décor, comfortable room & nice big bathroom. The continental breakfast spread was perfect for quick food & coffee on the way to my early morning meetings. Wish I hadn't brought my vehicle because parking was $10 a day and I didn't use my car for 3 days after I parked it. Important to note...anyone visiting with a car, and staying more than 3 days, can obtain a monthly parking pass (from local parking office just down the street on 5th & B) for as low as $30. I plan to stay again & will definitely recommend to others.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! We are happy to hear you appreciate the central downtown location and enjoyed your upgraded accommodations, as well as breakfast.
You are right about the monthly parking passes for $30.00 are a bargain but the lots are located a few blocks farther away.
Thank you for the recommendations! Our friendly staff look forward to hosting you again!

The decorations, staff and healthy choices for a free breakfast were wonderful. We could walk to all in downtown. We were upgraded to two suites with no extra charge-thank you! The most comfortable beds-yeah no back pain for the week! Loved the ghost stories; maybe the 4, loud stomps I heard at 2:00 in the fitness room below me was a ghost working out?! Anchorage is a beautiful city and the Town Square park, one block away had spectacular ice sculptures and xmas lights.

Room Tip: Room 302 has a nice park and moon view. 312 is on an alley, so you hear the trash truck t 7:00 am.

This is a good place to stay if you want to be downtown anchorage, which is not that big. There are lots of places to eat near the hotel, as there is no hot food available at the hotel. The free breakfast offered by the hotel is continental. You can make waffles if you want. There is coffee, toast, fruit, oatmeal packets, etc. No meat. The rooms are clean and have character. The hotel has updated the right things (namely the bathroom). I would stay here again.

This 'close to everything' historic (haunted) hotel is staffed by friendly, knowledgeable and helpful locals. The rooms are well appointed and the overall feel is one of snug comfort. The railway terminus is only a 10 minute walk but its up hill to the hotel - keep in mind if you have heavy baggage. The airport is only 6 miles (9.5 km) away but can take over an hour in traffic. Breakfast is a self serve affair and was our first encounter with both a waffle maker and disposable everything - plates, cups and cutlery. Corridor walls are lined with picture of yesteryear and don't miss those in the stairwell. Overall, a clean, novel, friendly, value for money establishment in a great location. (No ghostly activity noted during our two stays)

Room Tip: Although not overly loud, street and nightclub noise in rooms fronting East St may be an issue for s...
