We go to Juneau every 3 months to stretch our legs a bit and do things we can't do where we live(Petersburg, pop. @2000, on an island inaccessible by bridge). We have stayed at the Prospector every time in Juneau and have no reason to change.
The rooms are roomy and clean, with comfortable beds and a fridge and microwave. The water in the shower gets real hot real fast and the TV works. What more do you want from a hotel room?
Yeah, the lobby may be a little "tacky", but it's comfortable. This is not a new hotel folks, it's been there for a while.
The outside isn't perfect, but it's well-maintained.
The restaurant is excellent, as is the lounge. The lounge area has a bunch of puffy couches with oversized pillows on them, where you can chill with a drink by the faux fireplace and watch TV, or order dinner, or whatever.
The front desk staff and managers have never been anything less than thoroughly professional and extremely helpful. We have to give a big shout out to Shawn and Sarah for making our most recent stay even better by recommending some really cool places to eat and go, that we haven't previously hit.
I have read complaints about street noise, but what do you expect? It is on a street. It never makes any sense to me when people complain about outside noise coming in to their hotel room. Sound travels through glass, bricks, plaster and just about everything else. Most hotels aren't soundproofed booths. Who'd want to stay in one of those?
This hotel is not "downtown", but it's close enough.
We'll be back in August.
