“Perfect hotel for our needs”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

We needed a nice clean hotel with comfortable beds and the ability to do laundry. This hotel was perfect. We loved the suite format that let us spread out into the living room area. The location is centrally located in downtown Anchorage; great if you want to walk to local shops and good food options. The staff was very helpful. We did have the breakfast which was fine. It's definitely better than traditional continental breakfast served in most hotels. We would definitely return.

Not a glamorous hotel but nice; service was excellent, rooms clean, decent included buffet breakfast. Alaska is expensive in the summer and this place was the same at $215++ per night (what I pay in Hawaii!).

They had good shuttle service to the airport, train station and their sister hotel Comfort Inn (almost the exact same layout and service). This hotel is near the Anchorage Museum (well worth a visit). Very pleased with the shuttle service and used it lots (since I didn't rent a car).

The hotel was well situated near the shopping center and the Anchorage museum where you can take a bus to get to cruise ship. Nice to have a separate living room and second TV with a door. Useful when kids are sleeping. The breakfast was ok. The staff were nice. It was expensive but comparable to other hôtels in Anchorage.

Hotel is well located in city center with easy walk to restaurants, etc. Rooms are comfortable and cleaned as well as promptly attended to. Breakfast has bacon and eggs, waffles and more; great for the Alaska cool days. Will be an easy return choice.

Room Tip: Ground floors have people walking past windows.

We stayed in Anchorage for 2 nights before going to Denali Park in September 2012. The hotel is downmarket and not great. Dated, in need of refurbishment and seemed to be hosting a significant number of social housing 'guests'. The rooms were large and clean enough so on that basis, for a couple of nights we put up with it, but it is a long way from being a good hotel or part of a luxury holiday package - which the rest of our trip to Alaska from the UK certainly was. Breakfast continued to make us feel that we were staying in a hostel. The food choice was poor, polystyrene cups and astonishingly, a few people mysteriously filling carrier bags and disappearing through rear doors! Anchorage isn't a large place and other hotels would be a better option.

Room Tip: Don't.

We stayed at this hotel for five nights while on business in Anchorage. We found the front desk personnel friendly enough and the room was clean and large. However, this isn't the hotel for you if you're on your once-in-a-lifetime trip to Alaska. Overall, its decor is dated. The breakfast room is just plain sad, and there wasn't a single fresh item on the buffet the days I checked. Two of the three machines in the exercise room worked. The sign on the door between the exercise room and the indoor pool said the pool should have been open by mid-July but the note on the main door suggested the renovations wouldn't be complete until the end of July. There is no lounge, though it is easy enough to walk to restaurants and shopping in downtown Anchorage. My biggest complaint is that for this very average experience we paid over $200 a night. I know Anchorage is expensive, but you can find better for that price. If you are looking for a memorable time, by all means, visit Alaska. Just don't stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front may be quieter than the one we had in the back. On Friday night, I couldn't...

I have stayed here a few times, its an ok hotel. we likeD it because we are a family of 5 and we could get 2 beds plus a pullout couch for our oldest..perfect...
But in a recent trip to Anchorage we went straight there, to check in as usual...only to be greeted by THE RUDEST young lady I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. Let me try to list this in a way that you can understand my frustration...
1st of all they were charging more than I have EVER seen them charge, and I've come here in all seasons.
2nd, I have ALWAYS received an Alaska resident discount, its not a huge savings, but it makes me feel better about their prices.
3rd she tells me that the pool is out of service and there will be no adjustment to the price or anything for the inconvenience.
-At this point I made some calls to see if I could find a comparable hotel....I didn't....so I returned to the front desk to carry on with check in though I was thoroughly unhappy already.-
She then goes on to tell me that the only room she can ( or will at least) offer me is at the far end of the building and asks if that will be alright. I (confused) asked what difference that made besides a little longer walk to the room. She then proceeds to tell me that it is butted up to a bar and that people have been known to not get any sleep until the bar closes around 2-3 AM!!!!
Needless to say I left at this point...and will not return... There was also what appeared to be a manager nearby who did NOTHING to try to make me feel better about the situation but didn't have any trouble mumbling under his breath about me to the front desk worker when I was walking out. This is no way to keep customers, especially one that has been staying at your hotel 3-6 times a year....every year for nearly 8 years! Oh well, I'm happy to choose one of the other SEVERAL nice hotels in town that want my money and my business.
