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.

I booked the Anchorage Grand Hotel because of it's excellent proximity to the Alaska Railroad and Downtown Anchorage. Everything we needed was walking distance. The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is just outside the front door. But location is just the start, what we got was so much more! Our room was huge, super clean, and beautifully appointed. The beds are...

I had never heard of this hotel but was searching for a place that will hold our family of six (which rules out a lot). This hotel features large rooms, some with a separate bedroom. All rooms have a nice kitchen with dishes, utensils, pans, and dishwasher. Dishwasher soap is provided. The hotel is located just blocks from downtown Anchorage... More

Thank you for the nice comments, and for also pointing out that customers do receive the best rates on hotel stays by booking on-line, as we offer "specials" for 2 night, 4 night, and week long stays. Sincerely, John & Staff at Anchorage Grand Hotel More

I booked this hotel online at the advice of a friend because I wanted to stay down town and be close to everything, but not pay an arm and a leg. I landed late in the night (around midnight) and after a rental car fiasco I was greeted by the warm and friendly night front desk girl who explained everything... More

This is certainly not a $111/night value hotel. It is barely worth the $84/night if you book 4 consecutive nights. The downside there is, you have to stay all 4 nights after seeing the place. Their idea of customer service is pathetic, and if you need to use the internet for anything, well, plan on going to a coffee shop:... More

The rooms are very clean and spacious. The rooms are more like an apartment rather than a hotel. Great location close to everything. Only 5 miles from the airport. Had a great view of the mountains and ocean in room 502.. Would most definitely stay here again.

Oh, wait - never mind they can't afford it. I have never seen a hotel post a price list for EVERY single item in the room. I tried to attach a picture of the price list (dated November 2014) but my picture may be too blurry. Let me give you an idea as to what this fine establishment will charge... More

We regret you had such a poor experience at the Anchorage Grand Hotel. Since you stayed with us 3 or 4 nights, if you had alerted us you were not happy at any time, you would have been welcome to check out. You state that you did not like the fact that we have a "price list" in the room... More

I stayed here with wife in October 2014 for 5 days. Let me say it in simple terms. If I were to go Anchorage again... I shall not bother to search and compare hotels.

This hotel is pretty conveniently located downtown, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, sufficiently modern, and quite nice in general. Really can't think of any complaints aside from lacking an airport shuttle (though admittedly I'm not sure how many downtown Anchorage hotels do offer a shuttle service).
