“Great place, great people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2011

Just stayed for nine days. I have stayed at the hotel many times before and all have been very nice. The hotel was built in the 1940's, hence the name "Historic Anchorage Hotel", but I would say it is better described as classic. The location is perfect and the rooms are clean.

My husband and I travel to Alaska last June. We stayed at the Anchorage Hotel. The front desk staff was very nice and even search and printed directions for us. The room was roomy and very clean. The curtains are thick to block the 24 hour sun light. I would stay in this hotel again.

We arrived in Anchorage on March 28, 2011 for a celebration of our first wedding anniversary. We spent Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings in a very spacious corner room of the third floor of this gorgeous and unique hotel. The hotel is very clean and has been preserved in a wonderful way. There is nothing icky about it being historic--- only classy. The room was much larger than we expected, even then what we could see from pictures online. The sleeping area was separate from the sitting area, which also had a refrigerator and snack area and both areas had flat screen tv's. The bathroom area was nice as well. The room was cleaned each day and stocked accordingly. The bed was large and comfy!!! The internet worked great the whole time we were there.

Upon our arrival, the lobby was being painted and we wondered if that would be an interference to our stay, but we understood these things had to be done sometime, and the staff was very good to go out of their way keep the hotel smelling nice, keep things safe, and come to our room every time we needed something. The first night we were there, we needed a dining recommendation, so someone offered to come up and they did, with a map and suggestions-- very helpful and kind! Another day, our plans had changed and we realized since we were out hiking, that where we left our car, we were probably going to get in trouble. We called back to the hotel for advice and someone was willing to go above beyond and go buy us a new parking pass so we wouldn't get a parking ticket--- we thought that was exceptional customer service!!! The staff was also good to keep us up-to-date on weather and give us advice on road conditions.

Breakfast was yummy every morning and was cozy in the old bar. The location of the hotel is convenient for downtown activities and not too far from the airport. In fact, we were soooo glad we didn't stay closer to the airport, because even in the mornings, we could still hear some of the planes taking off (well I could, my sound-sleeper husband could not--- so consider that when choosing your location). We had a Mon-Thurs stay and did not have trouble with any other noises. We thought we got more than our money's worth and would definitely go back if the opportunity arises... and you should, too!

WOW! Thank you! This was a beautiful Monday to start off by reading your AMAZING review! We try our best to upgrade Anniversary couples to our Junior Suites. So happy you appreciated the suite and extra space! Our lobby reaaallllyy needed a new coat of paint! Glad it was finished before you left.

We loved the atmosphere of the hotel; it's been nicely kept up and renovated while maintaining the charm of its historic looks. Service was friendly and very helpful. We were given a front corner room which was bright and sunny and looked out onto the streets from the second floor. It lovely during the day, but the road noise was a bit disturbing through the night. We didn't expect street noise to be a problem on a Sunday night in March, but the delivery trucks come by at night and idle in the street while unloading goods for the neighbouring businesses. Perhaps we just had a bad night, but next time we will ask for a room near the rear.

Dear Guest:
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We strive hard to keep our guests completely satisfied and our hotel in the best of shape. We are glad you enjoyed the charm of the hotel and friendly staff. The delivery trucks you mentioned in the middle of the night .... It maybe the city street maintenance trucks. Anchorage has snow removal & street cleaning from October - April. Most all deliveries downtown start around 6:00am.
Again, thank you. We look forward to hosting you in the future!
Warm regards,
Terri and staff

Very nice hotel, well decorated with a friendly service. The breakfast is very good and generous. You have the opportunity to bake your own waffles and to enjoy the nice bar where the breakfast is served.
Definitely, a great choice when you are visiting Anchorage.

I wanted my daughter and granddaughter to experience Rhondy Days and the Iditarod festivities. The Historic Anchorage Hotel was the perfect location for all the action. Close to the Ceremonial Start, the Fur Auctions, the Blanket toss. and much more. Shops and restaurants were right outside the door. Our room was clean and comfortable and the staff made a great effort to make sure we were enjoying our stay. I hope to return in the near future!!
