The rooms here are huge and the breakfast had plenty of choices. Nice pool and hot tub. Good location if you want to be downtown. The shuttle left a bit to be desired, not at the station even though we called ahead and had to leave extra early for the airport as it only left once an hour. Otherwise a... More

We stayed here July 4-7 and July 11 and were pleased with our room (which includes a sitting area separate from sleeping area). At around $250 per night mid-range in the local tourist economy, but made a good value by the very convenient shuttle service, which transported us to and from airport and train station on different days. Both drivers... More

Sits in a convenient location 2 or 3 blocks from the center of Anchorage. The staff were very helpful and the room was large, clean and comfortable. Unfortunately, our room was on the corner of the building adjacent to a major intersection and was extremely noisy. Suggest not ordering from room service as it is delivered from an offsite fast...

We were stranded at the airport waiting for shuttle service and when it did arrive it would not hold the number of people waiting. This was despite the fact that we had called with the number in our party and we were assured the shuttle was on its way. Half an hour later when the shuttle arrived it could only... More

I understand this place has just changed hands, so give them a chance! We stayed here before our flight to Juneau; placed here by our tour company. The room was comfortable; internet service was slow; and we had to leave by 6 a.m., but the included breakfast wasn't ready until 6:00. Hopefully they will resolve this.

Hotel has recently changed hands and the new owner and staff aren't well prepared for managing the property. Rooms are clean and comfortable, however the workout room is very small to nonexistent. In addition the internet speed (download or upload) is very slow (no ability to stream a movie on Netflix or similar).

5 of us (mom, dad, aunt, boyfriend, and myself) stayed in a suite which I thought was a little small. With the sofa bed pulled out there may have been 1.5 ft between the bed and the tv stand. There was no way to keep the fan on without having the light on so we had to take the fluorescent... More

Room was large, breakfast was great. Everything from walking in to checking out could not have been better. Wish we could have stayed there longer. We had to catch the train and the sutrtle took us there too.

When we were looking for hotels, we tried to find ones that had a free airport shuttle, and free breakfast. Of all the research we did, this was the best value. When we got there, the room was much larger than I expected, the shuttle was large and clean, and the breakfast was about what we expected. It was a... More
