Second stay at this wonderful, affordable hotel in downtown Anchorage. The staff is friendly and helpful in every way from reservations to check in/out. We were able to check out a little later, store luggage and a cab was arranged. Breakfast is good, rooms are spacious and beds are great. Visiting this hotel during the Halloween season is a special treat. Another plus-you can walk to all downtown locations including the coastal walking trail in minutes. I will return!

Room Tip: Street can be noisy

We recently enjoyed our stay in downtown Anchorage at the Historic Anchrage Hotel. Not only is it with walking distance of great restaurants and attractions but they also provide parking for a small fee (this can be a rarity in downtown Anchorage) and have wonderful, very helpful staff. Staff not only unloaded our luggage and took it to the second and third floors, gave us excellent restaurant suggestions and even arranged easily for a late check out and then went out of their way to help us reload our luggage. The three of us reserved two rooms on two different floors. Both were large and very comfortable. One was located at the front of the hotel where street noise can be a problem. A "white noise" machine was provided but not really needed in this room. An adequate breakfast is also included with the rooms. We would definitely choose to stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: On the off chance that there is noisy activity on the streets, choose a middle or back location.

My husband and I returned to Anchorage for two weeks vacation in late August 2012 and had no hesitation in booking the Historic Hotel. We stayed there on two previous occasions and found it to be perfect in every way ... this year was no different.

The room was very comfortable, breakfast good and the coffee was available all day! Manager Terri and all the staff were more than helpful, every query was answered and were very knowledgeable about local events and places to see. They were also helpful in making reservations for restaurants/taxi's etc The hotel is situated in the downtown area and is close to stores and tour offices,

We would recommend it to anyone who is coming to Anchorage for a short or a long stay. Well done Historic - we'll be returning! Mary B.

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed. The room was large and the bed super comfortable. I was able to walk to several stores and do all my shopping. The staff and manager were very helpful and responded promptly. I needed an extra cloth hanger, I made a comment about it and after the room service lady overheard me, she quickly brought some from their storage room. I definitely recommend it!

Spacious, centric, comfortable, pleasant hotel. An OK breakfast is included in the price. One block from the open market, and walking distance to all of the (small) Anchorage downtown. It is quite busy, so you must make reservations.

I booked this hotel on the strength of the trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We stayed the previous night at the Hilton and thankfully they couldn't accomodate us for an extra night before our flight, so we transferred here. It is just around the corner from the Hilton and we took our bags round at about 9am and the lovely girl on reception checked us in and then stored our bags as the room wasn't ready. Not a problem as we were spending the day with friends exploring Anchorage.

The hotel had been done up in an old fashioned way with lovely furniture and decoration, looked just like an old english country hotel (we felt quite at home!) When we got into the room later in the day it was very clean and well appointed and reasonable spacious. We overlooked the street and had a view of the mountains in the distance, but it was noisy later on in the evening and early hours of the morning with revellers going home.

Breakfast was fine, not too much choice but great for we wanted. There was coffee, tea, two different juices, pastries, cereals and toast. You could also make your own waffles if you wanted to. Breakfast was served in what was the old bar to the hotel, so the seating was on high bar stools, which not everyone would find comfortable.

We enoyed our stay here, the staff were charming and it is in great location.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street would be quieter, but appear to have a view of a service area.

Right in the smallish downtown area of Anchorage, the hotel is within easy walking distance of some good restaurants and interesting shopping. Rooms are generous in size, nicely decorated with comfortable beds and furnishings. Serve a good free continental breakfast and complimentary wifi in the rooms. A good base of operations for sights in and around Anchorage. Within easy walking distance of the train depot for trips to Denali, Seward, etc.
