Flew into Anchorage from New Jersey on United not even a peanut, arrived 1am. Taxi to hotel $25. Great service for late arrivals. Delicious cookies. Short walk to rail station no problem with heavy luggage. Hotel decor is dated and little pricey.

After a noisy night in a well known downtown Anchorage hotel, followed by two even noisier nights in a downtown B&B (trucks passing within 50 yards all night; the free ear plugs by the bed should have been a clue; the owner even said she would normally charge me for leaving a night earlier than planned ... despite the "Vacancies"...

Thank you for that very nice review. Ours can be a thankless job, so it makes our hard work worthwhile to get an honest (objective) review from a well traveled individual. Our name, as you appropriately point out, might be a bit misleading in that we don't have the amenities of a 5 Star hotel (yet we don't indicate that... More

Although the decor is quite dated it is in brilliant condition. For a 2 bedroom apartment close to town the value was excellent. The trains seem to have a curfew from 10 to 5 but blow their horns a number of times when moving. The fighters from the air force base are noisy in the daytime, but you'd get that... More

I booked one night at Anchorage Grand because I was taking an earlyish train to Denali the next day and the hotel is about two minutes walk away. The name 'Grand' is a little misleading as this is somewhat dated and plain looking hotel. The welcome was friendly however and the apartment size suite (kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom)... More

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
