I spent 2 nights here in August. I chose this Hotel because of it's proximity to the train station and because of it's location downtown. I see other individuals have complained of the train whistles disturbing their sleep. I don't recall any train whistles during the night-and I am a light sleeper. I liked the location, in that it was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights due to the location to the train depot as we had train trips planned Sunday and Monday morning. The location could not be beat, just down the street a bit, down some steps and we were right there. With that in mind, yes there was noise, train whistles when arriving in the morning and... More

Thank you for the nice review. We do get our fair share of reviews that give us low marks because they heard the train horn, and that put them off, as you point out. For those who might be bothered, we do offer ear plugs. Moreover, we are looking in to clocks that have the option to play white noise... More

The hotel was nice and the room was actually a suite. It was much bigger than expected and had a full kitchen. However, the train station is only a block or so away and the trains were very loud for the entire night. It was a convenient location since I was arriving on the train from Seward late at night....

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.
