I used to stay downtown Anchorage, but found it to be too noisy for a good nights sleep, and I've chnged location to Executive Suites the past 6 years. Ihave seen quite an improvement in the hotel the past two years. It is a budget hotel, but overall fairly clean. It is locally owned rather than corporate, and the owner seems to be putting all his money right back in the place. New card type lock for the doors two years ago. The owner keeps renovating the place- new beds going in and new paint outside in 2012.
The location is nice for an early morning or evening walk (about 3 minutes) to Lake Hood where it is interesting to watch all the float planes taking off and landing.
Front desk staff are friendly and helpful with smiles, and the shuttle driver was also friendly and helpful. Shuttle runs on the hour and 1/2 hour.
Breakfast is the basic free hotel breakfast, cereal, some fruit, fresh muffins and bread, coffee and juice. The lady who takes care of the breakfasts speaks about 8 different languages and is quite interesting to talk to. If someone wanted a big breakfast Gwennies Alaskan Restaurant is just up the street, and Village Inn is directly across the street.
There is a nice sitting area near the breakfast room where a group or family can meet.
Overall it is the best value for a hotel in Anchorage I have found, and I will keep staying here for the value and location.
