I arrived late at the Anchorage Sheraton to witness a group of people at reception complaining about their rooms being given away. The manager had been summoned and they were asked to sit and wait for him. Luckily my room had been held, but it took me 20 minutes to get checked in because the trainee receptionist needed help from the manager, the only other person on duty. My long wait at reception meant that I got to the hotel restaurant just after it closed, so I went to bed on an empty stomach.
So my first impressions and experience of the Sheraton were not particularly great but things got better after that, so I have decided to award this place a four-star rating. My room was large and well appointed, with a nice view east towards the mountains. The only thing missing was a safe storage box, but it seems a lot of hotels I stay in these days do not have this vital piece of equipment. I only had breakfast while I was there. I had the buffet ($17 all inclusive), which included reindeer sausage, juice and unlimited coffee.
My other minor gripe about this place is it is located in a rather seedy part of the city, away from the action that surrounds the Hilton hotel a few blocks away. So if I visited Anchorage again I would probably look at staying closer in. Still, this is a pretty good place to stay if your options are running low.
