“Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

I was at this "haunted" hotel for the week of Halloween, but the only thing that was scary was the creepy decorating for the holiday--Thank goodness! Unlike other reviewers, I found the hotel to be a little too quiet at night (I'm a New Yorker), but the rooms have white noise machines. However, during the day you can hear every sound from the Gift Shop below... I also felt the breakfast got tedious after a few days since there was no variety or fresh fruit. You even have to ask to get milk for coffee or cereal. Maybe it was the time of year/lack of produce? The front desk staff was quite friendly and knowledgeable about their city. The fitness room is also better than other small hotels. The location is great if you want to be downtown, although the surrounding restaurants are quite expensive (and this is coming from a New Yorker!)...

We were so pleased with our stay in this lovely old hotel. The rooms were small but clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. We were leaving on a cruise the morning after our stay and were able to roll our suitcase down to the train station in a matter of minutes.

Room Tip: Our room was quiet and in the back of the building but I don't think traffic is really an issue...

We live an hour away from Anchorage and occasionally have to stay overnight. We always stay at the Anchorage Hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and neat and the breakfast is awesome! (Fresh fruit, make your own waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt, coffee and tea.)

It is in a great location.
I just love this hotel.

My friends and I stayed 2 nights at this lovely hotel in October. The front desk staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. We had a corner room with 2 beds separated by a wall; perfect for me and my married-couple friends. The area was quiet and safe and we could walk to all the nearby downtown attractions.
Morning breakfasts (included with stay) include fresh-made waffles, hard-boiled eggs, grapefruit (surprisingly tasty), cereal, bagels/cream cheese, coffee and juice. MUCH more extensive than I expected and quite delicious!
Highly recommended if you're staying in the area.

Room Tip: Room 302 has 2 separate double beds separated by a partial wall. 1 bathroom and a small kitchen alc...

We stayed for three nights after arriving in Alaska . It was a great place to recover from the jet lag! We felt the location was perfect and the breakfast a huge plus. This was a good hotel to base yourself in to access other tourist attractions before we started our tour of Alaska.

I stayed in the hotel two nights and loved the historic feel of the place and the rooms. I was in a front room overlooking the street, which was very noisy, so I recommend a room on the back side, away from the street. The manager at the desk went out of her way to be helpful, including running one of my suitcases to the airport after I had forgotten it at the hotel.
The breakfast/bar area is right off the lobby, comfortable, nothing great, but an okay place to hang out for a while before going out or for early coffee.

Room Tip: Get a room in back, off the street, for a quiet sleep. I did get a kick out of the street side as t...
