We paid $160 for a night in August. This is a pretty good deal by Anchorage standards, but this would be a $75 hotel in the lower 48. The check-in was a very positive experience, but things sorta dropped off from there. The breakfast experience was stressful with tourons climbing over each other for the waffles and sugary cereal.

I think you can judge a hotel by how clean the lobby is when you step in and this one was....ugh! The girl at the counter had a sloppy/dirty shirt on. For me, these set the tone. Our room was old and not so super clean. The price being about $200 wasn't worth it. I'd suggest getting a room in... More

At first, it was good. Room was clean, adequate, and the people got us our room. The breakfast was good, the buffet is delicious. So you might wonder why I put 3 stars! Well, as our weeklong hotel stay progressed, one of the staff members acted snotty everything we were around him, and was never nice, and rushed us. It... More

This is an older hotel in a fantastic location in downtown Anchorage. When researching hotels for July, it was obvious that hotels in Alaska are very expensive due to the very short tourist season. First of all, remember that this is Alaska, so do not expect Ritz Carlton luxury. People come to Alaska to enjoy the great outdoors to hike,... More

Our room was nice and clean. Employees were very pleasant and helpful. Needed to do laundry because something spilled in my suitcase. They had a laundry room easily accessible. They had a great breakfast bar with a very courteous attendant. Shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

I don't normally slam hotels but this one is an exception. The AC didn't work, the phone didn't work, and the woman at the breakfast bar couldn't handle the guests and was complaining loudly saying, "This is absolutely ridiculous, I have people barking orders at me, people need to calm down!" The worst part is that at 1:30 am the... More

This use to be the less than nice Howard Johnson's so if you remember that...well, just forget that. The place has been totally overhauled and it is my choice in Anchorage especially in the summer when you can get a room here for around $100 less than other nice downtown hotels. You do have to pre-pay to get the better... More

The property is not that attractive, but the room was decent. They have a complimentary breakfast, which had good breakfast foods. Parking is not very convenient- very limited and hard to get in and out of. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Clean but dated rooms. Needing some TCL, staff was friendly and polite. Close to downtown area and local attractions. Offstreet parking lot is a biggest plus allowing you free parking in a area filled with pay parking lots.

My son and I booked this hotel for two days over a week apart as bookends of our trip to Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. What a wonderful way to start and end our experience in Alaska! The front desk staff was super friendly and helpful (both stays), the rooms were clean and comfortable (both stays), and the patient breakfast attendant... More
