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.

We stayed her after we turned in our motorhome rental before our rail tour, and then again after the tour. They were very friendly and helpful and agreed to store our luggage. It was so nice not having to drag it with us on the train. The rooms are apartment sized and dated, but functional. As others have siad, no... More

The location behind the train station is very convenient. We arrived quite late-- midnight-- and had to be at the train depot at 5:45am to board the train to Seward. It was clean enough-- not immaculate, but fine. The front desk attendant, Julia, was VERY accommodating. She brought us extra sheets and towels for our children right away, and brought... More

Visited in July Anchorage was a little warm so our windows were always opened. We were street side and it was noisy.. Loud muffler cars, people walking the streets, trash pick up day was the best.. 7:30am.. And birds.. I don't know if they were mating or fighting.. This hotel has no common space so your either in your room... More

We arrived at the train station with lots of luggage. I was told the hotel was right across the road & it is but it is straight up a steep hill across the road. So we knew we needed help & called the hotel for a shuttle & they tell us they don't have one. There is a shuttle outside... More

Great location, spacious suite and helpful staff. The hotel is conveniently located to downtown attractions, restaurants plus nature trails and military installations. Rooms were clean, beds comfy and small kitchenette stocked and great for extended stays. Front desk, although not open all the time, was accommodating and had great cookies. Although my room was in the back facing the train... More

This is a great Alaskan-flavored find in the heart of Anchorage--spacious. clean, attractive, and comfortable--in sharp contrast to the other generic hotels that can be found any where, any time. The Grand appears to be a converted apartment building, and inside it is a delight. The standard room we had was three rooms complete with a huge window sporting a... More

Nothing more to ask for, really. Generally had a great experience. When we pulled up to the outside, I said to my husband: Wow. Not impressed. But then we checked and and were really delighted by our room. Lots of space. Fully functional kitchen. Helpful reception desk. Apples and cookies. Free wifi. Free breakfast (and enough food for snack) for... More

We spent a night here before our early morning train to Seward, AK. The hotel is less than 100 yards away from the train depot. We were able to roll our heavy luggage, packed for the week-long cruise, down the hill to the train station. The rooms were huge. This building used to be an apartment before the earthquake. There...
