Really liked the location able to walk everywhere. Front desk people really helpful and very nice. Lounge staff not so helpful or friendly. Café we ate breakfast in was alright, staff was very friendly BUT food was not hot. Housekeeping staff not so good had to ask for coffee everyday and they never gave us clean cups. We had to... More

Well, cool old historical building in desperate need of renovation. Lobby, bar, restaurant all musty, worn out and gloomy. Our room was pretty much the same, a bit on the dirty side with leftover coffee in the coffee pot that looked many days old. Folks that ate in the restaurant said that the service was very slow, food was ok.... More

As the locals will tell you, the Baranof is the grandest hotel in Juneau. Of course, everything is relative. There is not a lot of competition for "grand" in Juneau. Most travelers will find the Baranof well past its prime, but the future may be bright. The hotel is undergoing a bit of renovation, an undertaking that is not quite... More

We stayed in Room 312 for 3 nights. We were unable to change rooms as the hotel was full. Our last night being a Saturday night was the very worst. Party going on in the streets. Police siren etc. The breakfast was very good as were the staff in the cafe. Apart from the noise which we rate as extremely... More

This hotel is well located but very old fashioned, noisy and not at a level expected for this kind of standard. Even the restaurant, where the menu seemed interesting, was sad and we didn't give a chance to try it... The breakfast saved finally the stay with a very smart team.

This hotel has different rates for different floors. If you want to pay the lower rate, you are on the 2nd floor. Ask for an outside room - the inside rooms look out onto the roof. Industrial looking. Plus the windows are accessible from anyone on the roof. Also, they sold us tickets on a Monday for the tram up... More

I know it is remote but it also isn't 1970. Really could do with an update, but based off trip advisor photos it is not the only place in need of some work. Service wasn't awesome either. Close to everything down town. Restaurant at least looked ok with things like Alaskan crab risotto.

Bathrooms have historic charm, yet are clean and updated. Kitchens need major overhaul...old, old, old. Beds are nice. Carpet is dark, so you can see dust in corners and along baseboards where vacuums can't reach.

The entire team strives to make your stay comfortable and nice. I travel on business and find this hotel to have superior customer service. The front desk people take the time to ensure that my stay was both productive and pleasant. For someone who like to be at home taking the time to know my first name and the type... More

We were a little worried about staying here after some of the reviews we read. We stayed two nights before our cruise.We had no problem with noise other than the ravens in the morning. We stayed on the second floor in the back of the hotel and our bathroom had been updated. Rooms are small but how much time do... More
