A special shout out to Erica at the reception for being super accommodating and professional to our requests late at night !! We asked for a room change twice because it faced the parking lot and she complied without any hesitation. We stayed at this hotel twice (1 night inbound and 1 night outbound) during our trip to Anchorage. In... More

I like the HIExpress brand and am rarely disappointed. The location was perfect for an early morning flight from the city. All amenities, including a business center to print boarding passes. Friendly and courteous staff!

This hotel is typical HI-Express, which is exactly why we selected to stay here. Staff are friendly, accommodating. Cookies and milk in the evening! Close to the airport, shuttle for pick ups or drop offs at the airport and/or train station. Internet is slow...that is Alaska..all over. Google it..for real, slowest state by far!

We stayed here on two occasions and the overall service was great. The front desk persons were very helpful with directions, transportation help, recommendations of restaurants and attractions. On our second stay we had 80 pounds of frozen fish that that helped keep frozen until our plane left for home. Without this we could have lost it all with the... More

We actually booked into another hotel, but due to some problems there, moved our reservations to the Holiday Inn Express on Spenard. I am So glad we did.

I have always wanted to drive to Alaska, and finally did so this month. I decided to stay three nights at the HI Express Anchorage. I had actually arrived a few hours early at around 10:30 AM.

I've stayed here a few times over the years and although it's OK, it's absolutely nothing special and on this visit there were a few things not-quite-right.

We used this hotel as our base in Alaska. Very nice accommodations, clean, quiet and conveniently located to the airport. Very easy to navigate around Anchorage from there. They allowed us to park our car there while we flew out to Brooks Lodge with no additional charge. The front desk personnel were efficient and friendly.
