they advertise free wifi because it's free if you can find it. The connection to our suite was non existent. Although I called and complained they could do nothing. Also, you will need to love trains because the train horns are constant. Earplugs are a must!

Thanks for staying with us, and for your comments. We regret you had trouble with the WiFi. So far this year, you are our first complaint about poor WiFi. A poor connection means one of the access points has been unplugged. These are located in the guest rooms, so it does happen on occasion despite the notice on the device... More

This is a great hotel if you need to catch an early train as it is just a short walk to the station. It is also very close to the centre of Anchorage for shops and restaurants. We found the staff very friendly and helpful at all times. Our room was on the top floor giving fantastic views of the... More

We loved our room. It was quirky, old school, and had a kitchen. The staff are friendly and their breakfast is funny (delivered in a bag at your door in the morning). It location is awesome; right next to downtown and walkable. The weekend market is right there! But the trains sound off all night and the hotel is right... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights, before taking a cruise. We had a corner apartment which was very bright and airy. The living room/kitchen was huge, and the bedroom and bathroom were of an adequate size. Unlike some people we loved being so near the trains. We watched them arrive, and as it was so near, sometimes walked... More

Thanks for staying with us, and for providing the insightful review. We have struggled to come up with a good breakfast snack that everyone will enjoy. What some people want, others clearly don't. We need to keep working to find the happy medium, so that we can please the majority. City Market is the closest grocery store, and it is... More

We have returned to what we consider "our home in Anchorage" several years in a row. It is on a hill above the train station next to the Alaska Statehood Monument. It isn't new but is very clean and comfortable. It was probably built as apartments and therefore doesn't have a restaurant or large lobby. In each room there is... More

If you're looking for a place to overnight that's close to the train station, this would be good choice. We were not, and in fact, the train whistles at night and in the morning were pretty annoying. The hotel is clean, but clearly has seen better days. Biggest complaint is that the "continental breakfast" comes in a plastic bag outside... More

The rooms are bigger than average. Hotel is older and rooms show it, but it was clean and met our needs. No frills but met our needs. We flew into Anchorage and wanted to catch a train to Seward early the next morning. This hotel is perfect for that - as the hotel is about 100 yards from the train... More

It was very handy to be able to walk the short distance up the hill from the train station to the hotel. The staff are very friendly and breakfast in the bag fine to start the day. The rooms are huge and would be great to stay in if staying for a week or so as that have a full... More

Great place. The location is downtown and close to restaurants and information centres and all the tourist shopping to your hearts content. We were there on a Sunday so were able to attend the "market" pretty much across the street. Older building with updates, roomy, clean and comfortable. Front desk folks were very friendly and helpful. Try for a second... More

Railway noise at night and breakfast in a paper bag are the downsides. Fabulously roomy and well kept room (although a bit dated), kitchenette, great staff and location are the upsides. Also, we were there on a weekend and able to go to the nearby markets where we shopped for souvenirs, enjoyed the food stalls and the entertainment.
