I wanted my daughter and granddaughter to experience Rhondy Days and the Iditarod festivities. The Historic Anchorage Hotel was the perfect location for all the action. Close to the Ceremonial Start, the Fur Auctions, the Blanket toss. and much more. Shops and restaurants were right outside the door. Our room was clean and comfortable and the staff made a great...

We stayed at the Historic Anchorage Hotel in July this year and found the hotel to be perfectly positioned to see all of Anchorage. The breakfast room, which was the bar, is lovely with old wood and a beautiful bar and a stuffed polar bear! The breakfast was more than adequate, although served on paper plates, you can help yourself... More

This nice historic hotel is extremely convenient to town and all it's great places to eat. The front desk staff; Terri, Jessica, and Magda were all very kind and helpful. The room price was reasonable. The room was very neat and clean. Breakfast was tasty and done well. In summation I'd say the stay here was a blessings to us!

We stayed at the hotel during the Halloween event, with local paranormal investigators from IOPIA, Oct. 30th 2010. This was a fantastic time, we actually witnessed paranormal occurances while investigating room 215 with the team! So much history, beautiful art, great location, good food, super clean, friendly staff. I will be booking a room for next year's investigation event!

Stayed for 2 weeks in the Historic for the second time in September 2010 having been there in 2008. The hotel had still the same friendly atmosphere, cleanliness was 100%, location was good as it was near lots of attractions and transport to other locations could always be found. The staff were excellent and couldn't so enough for you ...... More

There are two completely different experiences of this hotel: it’s either a nice place or it’s a nightmare. The difference is due to room location and perhaps the day/s of your stay. We had the misfortune to have a room on the street-side of the hotel, and to stay on Friday and Saturday, both nights when the locals were really... More

This is a nicely updated historic hotel in downtown Anchorage. We chose it because it was walking distance to the train station. If you enjoy staying in historic hotels, you will enjoy the rooms but be aware that the hotel is located downtown and there are several clubs in the area that are open until 2:30am. Also, it is located... More

This hotel is centrally located in downtown Anchorage. Perfect for walking everywhere. Quaint and comfortable hotel and the service and staff (especially Terri, the manager at front desk) make this my hotel of choice in Anchorage. The delicious breakfast that is complimentary is more like a full breakfast. If you are looking for great food try Glacier Brewhouse or Simon... More
