Reviewed 20 January 2009

A friend told me about this little known hotel..They are remodeling their rooms, so if you stay request one of the newly remodeled rooms. I did and it was fantastic. Charming old hotel that has a friendly family feel. I also enjoyed their new work out room that opened the week I was there! Parking is free, but you can walk to just about everywhere. (Weather permitting, of course)

Very bad experience with their reservation service! They only take phone calls during normal working hours (Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 6:00pm?). You can leave a message or fill out a reservation request online, but you don't know if they have available rooms on the days you want and when they will call you back!

Well, they have an emergency # (you can press 1 when nobody takes your phone calls...I guess this is the hotel front desk #). I guess it is sort of MY FAULT that I pressed that so called "emergency #" . However, the person who took my phone call was really rude! I just wanted to confirm if they take check-in after midnight. She just said, "You need to call back on Monday" and then hung up!

Can you trust their service? What if your flight gets delayed during weekends? Call back on Monday?

Two outstanding points about the Dukes 8th Avenue Hotel are its cleanliness and location. My mother, two sisters and I arrived the Friday evening before our cruise. We booked the two bedroom suite. I was especially impressed with how clean the place was. It is located downtown near to everything. The Egan Convention Center is only two blocks away. Our transfer by bus to the ship docked in Seward left from there. We were able to take our luggage over there Saturday morning about 10:00 a.m. and send it on to the ship. We were given a time on a card to catch the bus at 1:15 p.m. My sister and I then walked to the Downtown Saturday Market which is held Saturdays from mid-May to mid-September. The market is a farmers market/craft market/food fair/live entertainment venue. Be aware that there is no restaurant in the hotel. We arrived in Anchorage after a grueling day of travel. My mother and I were too tired to go out to eat that evening and went straight to bed. The next morning we, of course, were very hungry. Since there was a four hour time difference, if was only 5 a.m. in Anchorage. There was nothing open close by. The night clerk and the day clerk both told us the café in the office building across the street opened at 6 a.m. However, since it was Saturday, it was not open. I realized one of the big hotels would have to have a restaurant. The clerk showed us on a map that the Marriott was four blocks away. Since my mother has limited mobility, we called a cab. The Marriott was around the corner! No wonder, the surprised look on the cab driver. Well, it gave us something to laugh about. We had a wonderful buffet breakfast for $13 each. Overall, I recommend this hotel and would stay there again. It is not fancy, but clean and situated perfectly for seeing downtown Anchorage-a good place to sleep before or after a cruise.
