Stayed for a night before catching the train to Seward. Chose the hotel because of proximity to train station. Would only stay again if needed to catch a train as had very little sleep because the trains seemed to go all night and kept blowing whistles. Not sure if the trains usually blow the whistles that much or was because... More

Average hotel in a great location....if you like trains! Almost constant horn honking between about 6 and 9am every morning as there is a level crossing a short distance behind the hotel and a LOT of train activity in the morning. No alarm clock needed! The room itself was ok, a little older but well maintained, same goes for the... More

All of the rooms here have tiny kitchens and very large rooms. Everything is older, but it was clean and the staff was very nice. The bed was comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. It is right on the docks, but I don't remember hearing any noise. We are early risers, though. We would definitely stay here, again.... More

I visit Anchorage about 4x a year for business and like a good location with a kitchenette - summer reservations are difficult to get with the tourist season in full swing so this was my first time at the Anchorage Grand. The Hotel is "tired" but safe and adequate with bedroom, kitchen and living room, but between trains, planes, trucks,... More

The rooms were clean and the amenities( wifi, coffee, fridge, microwave) functioned well. Not a lot of cable channels on the tv, but that's not a drawback. There was a pullout bed on the sofa (you pay extra for 3 persons, of course) and the bed(a small queen) was comfortable. The train noise, even when the windows were closed, was... More

The hotel is adequate. It is clean, but tired. The staff is friendly. There are 4 King rooms, one on each floor. Stay away from the one on floor 2. The curtains were falling from the track as the hooks were completely missing, as was part of the shower curtain. The room is a handicap room, consequently the sink in... More

The staff is so friendly, location is awesome and rooms have very comfortable amenities. Decent breakfast included. Sadly it is close to train station and periodically loud throughout the night. If it were not for the trains it would be the perfect stay.

I have stayed in many downtown Anchorage hotels--Sheraton, Hilton, Westmark, Downtowner, to name a few--and this is one of the best for the price. I spent three nights at this hotel--my first visit. Let me start with the positives. It is reasonably priced for the downtown location. It is near the train station and within a short walking distance from... More

We were pleasantly surprised to have an apartment with a kitchenette and living room, as well as the complimentary breakfast, apples, and cookies, and we enjoyed the view and the location, particularly since we were taking the train to Denali the next morning. We were also able to walk to restaurants and the coastal trail, so we're very happy with... More

Choose this hotel mainly for location, Railroad Station and downtown. Nice to have a kitchen so we didn't have to indulge downtown. The 'continental' was a bit of a let down, the bagles were very heavy. Noise from the railroad was also noticeable. All in all not a bad place to stay.
