Traveled to Anchorage on Anniversary date and the hotel did a great job of making it special by their attention to details. Would highly recommend this hotel for a number of reasons from the close proximity to attractions to the great customer service they provided my wife and I during our stay.

We spent 2 nights at the Anchorage Grand Hotel as part our pre-cruise trip to Alaska in early July. The hotel is definitely dated....Our room was small and a bit stuffy, but the bed was comfortable and we slept well. It does have a very convenient location. We had to be up early our last morning to catch the 6:45... More

Upon arrival in Anchorage we needed a hotel close to the train station, the Grand not only was convienient to the station but the entire downtown area was within walking distance. The rooms were large and comfortable, the breakfast bagels, fruit and coffee was good. The price was right compared to downtown name hotels, if we go back this is... More

on arrival, do not be daunted by the rather Easter block style of this hotel. A warm welcome awaits the weary traveller in reception. Also, freshly baked cookies! Our rooms were huge and, although furnished in a sort of dull 70s brown, were absolutely spotless. The bed was delightfully comfortable and the bedding of very good quality. The location was...

It was a great hotel for a quick overnight stay extremely close to the train depot. A little noisy because you can leave the windows open at night, but very comfortable beds. Ask for a high room on the street side for a little less noise.

Place was great. Older place but very clean and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. I didn't spend much time in the room but it was important that the time I did have there was well spent. Wifi was great. I never had a problem with it. The trains started blowing their horns about 6-7 AM but it... More

they advertise free wifi because it's free if you can find it. The connection to our suite was non existent. Although I called and complained they could do nothing. Also, you will need to love trains because the train horns are constant. Earplugs are a must!

Thanks for staying with us, and for your comments. We regret you had trouble with the WiFi. So far this year, you are our first complaint about poor WiFi. A poor connection means one of the access points has been unplugged. These are located in the guest rooms, so it does happen on occasion despite the notice on the device... More

This is a great hotel if you need to catch an early train as it is just a short walk to the station. It is also very close to the centre of Anchorage for shops and restaurants. We found the staff very friendly and helpful at all times. Our room was on the top floor giving fantastic views of the... More

We loved our room. It was quirky, old school, and had a kitchen. The staff are friendly and their breakfast is funny (delivered in a bag at your door in the morning). It location is awesome; right next to downtown and walkable. The weekend market is right there! But the trains sound off all night and the hotel is right... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights, before taking a cruise. We had a corner apartment which was very bright and airy. The living room/kitchen was huge, and the bedroom and bathroom were of an adequate size. Unlike some people we loved being so near the trains. We watched them arrive, and as it was so near, sometimes walked... More

Thanks for staying with us, and for providing the insightful review. We have struggled to come up with a good breakfast snack that everyone will enjoy. What some people want, others clearly don't. We need to keep working to find the happy medium, so that we can please the majority. City Market is the closest grocery store, and it is... More
