“Perfect for our needs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

We chose to stay here on the night that we arrived in Anchorage. They offer a shuttle to and from the airport - free. Our flight arrived at 10:30pm and the shuttle arrived within 10 minutes of our call. Very efficient and much appreciated. The rooms are spacious, clean and have two very comfortable queen beds (some of the other hotels downtown have full/double beds:). Staff was very friendly and we appreciated the breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, yogurt, fruit, coffee and a delicious teas assortment - free. A great value.

Exactly as expected. Room and wireless clean and new and working well. Breakfast is ok and it is close to airport 1 mile and great running path around the lake by the float planes. Gym is very small (4 equipment) but new. Nowehere to stretch and no weights. Pool small but working and a good Jacuzzi. Good value for money

Room Tip: back side is very quiet and second floor is ground level in front,.

In Feb 2014 myself and my family spent a week at this hotel whilst we explored Anchorage and the surrounding area. The rooms were clean, spacious and had a good free WiFi connection and free breakfast. There was a safety deposit box in the room and the staff were always friendly and helpful. As you walk out of the hotel you can find some food outlets, including a Wendy's, pizza place and coffee house however a short 5 min walk will take you to Gwennies Restaurant, a highly recommended place to eat with delicious food that comes in large portions! The hotel is close to the airport but a little distance from down town. The hotel will organise taxi's to take you down town however we chose to ride the local bus which I think gives you a much better view of the city you are staying in. We found several bars and restaurants from riding the bus and with the bus stop being outsite the hotel it was a really enjoyable way to explore the city. I would stay here again.

I have traveled to Anchorage a few times for work and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza previously (which I believe is part of the same chain), but this was far better. Great location, close to food places, easy to get in and out of. Rooms were great, breakfast was awesome and the staff was super friendly. Location was quite and the rooms were clean. Recommend staying here for a great value.

Free shuttle - even at oh dark thirty when I arrived. Room hazard fridge & micro. Everything new & shiny. Breakfast buffet included & a step up but still a chain breakfast bar with depressing styrofoam plates. Nice selection of tea, juice, fruit.

We stayed here after arriving on a late flight into Anchorage. The shuttle service was prompt and friendly. The front desk was efficient and nice. The beds were warm and cozy. The breakfast was fine. It was exactly what we needed before heading out to another Alaska destination.

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Anchorage before, and remember having an awesome breakfast. This was the case again. However, we stayed in the "Whirlpool Suite" on the top floor, and my husband and I were NOT impressed. To us, a whirlpool should be large enough to accommodate two people - this was definitely not. It also wasn't very well designed - there was a knob on the wall opposite the tub that you had to turn in order for the jets to work. That meant that if you wanted to be in there with jets for longer than 30 minutes, you had to get out of the tub and turn the knob again. There was no shower near the whirlpool (so you had to walk through the room to get to the bathroom), and there was no way to watch tv from the whirlpool.

Lastly, the whirlpool was not clean. The tub itself was clean, but when we turned a knob to adjust the jets, dirt came oozing out from underneath. It made me want to throw up. There was dirt under the other knob as well, which is just unappetizing.

The room itself was nothing fancy - it was hard to get the room to cool down once it got warm, but with the right jiggling of the thermostat my husband finally figured it out.
