“Avoid Room 201”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011

This was our first hotel after 12 hours of travel - we were dog tired and just wanted to sleep. However this room overlooks the junction of a busy road and an even busier bar opposite. We were kept awake into the wee small hours by raucous revelry seemingly right outside our window with swearing, singing and a police bust at 5am. Not ideal...in the cold light of dawn, the hotel itself was quite pleasant, and as we had found out, centrally situated :-(, but convenient to walk around from. So be warned - if you are going to stay there, ask for a room at the back, (unless you want to party all night).

Room Tip: Ask for one away from the main street

We stayed here the night after a cruise and my parents stayed two nights. It was in a great central location, easy to get to from where we picked up our luggage by walking. The staff were very helpful at check in and in recommending places to eat. We were upgraded to a suite which was nice and large, though without airconditioning, which is likely not a problem most of the time! The rooms were clean, a little dated but in keeping of the character of the hotel. There was a breakfast room that provided average but filling fare in the morning. We would definitely stay here again given the chance.

We stayed here two nights following a cruise. We chose the hotel based on location and it was a resonable price. We also liked the idea that is was older and a part of Anchorage History. The staff were very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable of the area and local things to do. The rooms were dated but clean and the beds were comfortable. The one downside to this hotel was the LOUD nightlife that surrounded it. We had a room on the second floor facing the front street and both nights it was very loud. The noise continued well after 3am and on more than one occasion did the police show up to deal with individuals staggering down the streets. I would still recommend this place based on location and price but word of advice... pack earplugs.

We spent 3 nights at the Historic Anchorage Hotel. We had a mini-suite and enjoyed the restoration of the hotel. The bathroom was small, but everything was immaculate. The front desk people provided maps, restaurant recommendations, directions, and answered all questions. Parking is available at a city lot for $10 for 24 hours....very reasonable and a very short walk away. A continental breakfast came with the room and was very nice.

Room Tip: Request an upgrade to a mini-suite on the third floor.

This hotel is very old and dingy and I thought the bathroom was gross. The only thing good about this hotel was the location...we could walk to the nearby restaurants and shops. I would definitely not stay here again. We stayed here on our 1st night during our AK trip...this did not leave a good impression of Anchorage, thankfully it got a lot better once we reached Denali.

It was a very nice room & good service. A small room refrig. would have been nice for the massive restaurant leftovers:) Nice to have real cups & glasses in room. Walking distance to downtown attractions a plus.
