Clarion Suites Downtown
Ranked #32 of 74 Hotels in Anchorage
Reviewed 6 June 2011

Spent two nights using Choice points. Room was very quiet, didn't hear anyone else the entire stay. Room was large with separate living room with a sofa bed that could be closed off. Breakfast was above average with eggs, potatoes, sausage/bacon and waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. Location isn't the best, you really need a car to stay here.

We spent five nights here with our large dog, who needed specialist vet care in Anchorage. Hotel charged a 150 dollar pet fee, but the staff were all very welcoming to our pet. Park across the street for short walks with our dog. Fairly easy access to Anchorage's great trail system.

There was a large group of teenagers staying in the hotel for the last couple nights we were there. There was some kind of tournament in Anchorage. They were extremely loud. Quick response from front desk staff when we complained about the noise and running in the hallways. Hotel was very quiet earlier in our stay.

Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Free wi-fi in the room. The breakfast buffet was great! Seems to be in a safe location. Had no concerns even when taking our dog out late at night.

Several restaurants within walking distance, including Benihana in the same parking lot. Shopping is also nearby.

We stay at this hotel several times a year when traveling to Anchorage. We have 4 kids so the layout of the rooms works great for us. We appreciate the hot breakfast, refridgerator and microwave when feeding the family. The pool is small, but the kids always have a good time. NOise level is reasonable and the location is very good. YOu can walk downtown or drive uptown on Minnesota drive quickly.

The business center is two computers and one is often "out of order". The workout room is one treadmill, one eliptical and one bike in a very small room, but suffices when you need to burn calories.

My biggest complaint is that they are charging a "safety box" fee. They should take the safes out of most of the rooms rather than charging this fee to those that could care less about having a safe in the room.

Although not in the heart of downtown Anchorage, this hotel is easy to get to from the airport. The rooms are large, staff friendly and breakfast good. It is also well priced.

The Staff at this hotel were sooo wonderful.. The room was a 2 king bed suite which had such a comforable bed, I had such a hard time getting out of bed because it was so comfortable, and everything in the room was all up to date and immaculate. Breakfast was delicious! There was so much food, I wasn't even hungry for lunch.The lobby is beautiful with a Colonial Contemporary style. Even after I checked out, later that evening, they let me ride the complimentry airport shuttle. I wish I could've stayed longer. Keep up the good work Clarion Downtown Anchorage!!

We took a trip through Alaska with a 3 year old that wanted to sleep in bed with us and would not go to sleep. I loved this hotel because we stayed in a suite that had a door that separated the two sleeping areas. So, the adults didn't have to go to sleep at 8pm and we were able to get some alone time as well. There was also a hibachi restaurant that shared a parking lot with the hotel, which turned out too be pretty good as well.

Generally this hotel is ok for business users but not for tourists. Access to downtown points of interest, restaurants and grocery and liquor stores all involve a considerable walk. If you are fit and healthy then that's not a problem. If you are elderly or infirm and without your own car then a taxi will be required. I found that the noise from air conditioning units in adjacent rooms was annoying and kept me awake at night. Breakfast is edible but nothing to shout about. Overall, hotel is expensive for what you get.
