Best place to stay if your are on transit to catch the next train. 5 minutes walk to the train station situated behind this hotel. 5-10 minutes walk to the mall in downtown. We had no problem with the noise, probably there were not many train service during winter. Our room was clean and well equipped with a kitchenette. Wifi... More

Thank you for staying with us at the Anchorage Grand Hotel, and for your nice comments. We will certainly try to do better regarding the light bulb, and the TV signal. I am not sure how busy our front desk person was that evening, but since we are a small hotel, and don't have a maintenance tech working at that... More

I stayed at this hotel on three separate occasions. The rooms are spacious and offer an affordable place to stay. No they aren't the fanciest of places, but I wasn't looking for fancy in Anchorage. The location to the train station makes it ideal if you will be taking the train. The parking lot was only a block away and... More

We were two couple and we stayed in Anchorage overnight before joining our Alaskan Glacier Cruise. When we booked in we were given a full size suite for the four of us - on the ground floor over looking the extensive garden area. The room had AC , but you could open the windows to allow fresh air in. Our... More

Clean rooms. Had a seperate kitchen with basic amenities. Parking space is a lot which is a building away. The lobby staff issue pass which needs to be collected every 24 hrs if you are staying dor more than 1 day. Lobby staff were ok. Somehow the comfort level in the rooms wasn't that great. Hence giving a 3.5.

Got a full size suite. Had 2 double beds and 1 pull out sofa. Had a desk and 1 small table + kitchenette. Although it was right up hill of the train station, I didn't hear anything at night with the windows closed (our windows faced the train station. There is no air conditioning though, so open the windows during... More

We needed to be close to Alaska Railroad and this hotel is right up the hill from it. We surprised and delighted to find when we checked in, that our room was like a small suite! A living room, kitchen, separate bedroom and bath. The hotel is a little older but very nice people work there. They were making cookies... More

Thanks so much for staying with us, and the nice comments. We hope to have you back. To address your comment about the ramp, and the 5 stairs, this is a feature that cannot be changed at the main entry This is actually one of the older buildings in the city of Anchorage that we completely renovated in 2000.

We were impressed with the size of our suite. It was clean, attractive, and well-maintained. The bed was comfortable. The staff member who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The hotel is a 5-minute walk to the train station, which is why we chose it. The close proximity to the train station is also a negative because of the... More

We selected this hotel due to its proximity to the train station which worked out well. As others have noted this must have been an extended stay hotel at one time as many if not all of the rooms have cooking facilitates and eating space. Although breakfast is included, it is left outside the door at 7am. We needed to... More
