Duke's 8th Avenue Hotel
Ranked #46 of 74 Hotels in Anchorage
Reviewed 27 June 2011

Duke's is a comfortable small downtown hotel. The location is great for me that I can walk right across the street to the Conoco Phillips building for business. There are no kids running in the halls or doors being slammed. It nice that you can get your computer work done and not be bothered. As always the hotel is clean and the staff is polite. It's an older hotel but I love staying there. I've stayed in several hotels in Anchorage in the past but now I only stay at Duke's. I get a good night's sleep at Duke's.

My family and I have stayed in a wide variety of Anchorage's downtown hotels over the years. Duke's has topped the list for being clean, quite, and spacious. The location was perfect. I was able to walk to my conference as well as coffee, restaurants, culture, and shopping. I look forward to my next stay at Duke's.

I had a very bad experience with this hotel. looks nice but the management is bad with bad customer service. they called me up just a week before my travel to Anchorage to attend the Aerospace annual meeting. which made the situation worse that the town is almost fully booked for that entire week. This not the first time that the hotel does the same thing to its customers. It happened before, if they have a group booking they would go ahead and cancel your booking and its up to you to figure out where to stay!! I don't advice anyone to stay there.

Duke's is directly behind the Dena'ina Convention Centre in Anchorage which makes it extremely handy if you're attending a conference in town. Downtown Anchorage is quite small and easy to walk around in. This made Duke's within a few minutes walk of pubs and restaurants. It was great to have a kitchen facility to make our own meals and in relax lounge area with a comfy sofa. Staff were friendly and the hotel offered facilities for such as a fitness centre and laundry machines. I would stay here again.

Duke's 8th Avenue comprises a number of suites each with kitchen living and sleeping areas. We were given a very warm welcome by Christine and her staff and the hotel represents excellent value for money in a city where hotel rooms are very expensive.

If you need granite counter tops and Toto toilets, this in not the place for you. But if you want value in a clean, safe environment with an accommodating hotelier and personable staff, right downtown with the ability to walk everywhere, then book this residential hotel immediately. Why settle for a room when you can have an apartment? Plenty of hot water, towels and WIFI. Every unit is different so specify your requirements when booking.

Walk 3 mins. to Irish Pub, 5 mins. to Mall with Nordstrom's and J C Penny, 10 mins to shops and restaurants downtown, 10 mins. to Anchorage Museum and sightseeing shuttles. We had this bargain for a whole month!
