“A very nice hotel near downtown Anchorage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

While traveling back and forth from Wasilla to Homer for a fishing trip we booked and stayed at the Dimond Center Hotel in Anchorage for one night. Our booking was made on line and everything went smoothly. The staff was very pleasant. Our room was very large with a huge jacuzzi in it plus coffee and micro wave. Great bed and TV. The decor was purely Alaskan throughout the hotel. The lounge was okay but nothing special. Simple but good bar food. Of course they had Alaskan beers. The hotel is in a business area in the Dimond Center, not much of a view except for the city. I would recommend this hotel for anyone traveling through the area.

Room Tip: Try to get a top floor room, no noise from above. We were on the second floor but didn't hear a...

We stayed at this hotel after a very long trip from Florida. We got in late but the bar was still open and served excellent food. We thought our room was great. It was spacious and clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was very friendly. They have a decent free breakfast in the morning and the shuttle took us to pick up our rental car. We are returning next summer and will definitely stay here before we start our road trip.

This hotel has very nice rooms and large bathrooms. We stayed two seperate times in our recent trip to Alaska and both times were very good. The included breakfast was also good. I have no concern at all about recommending this hotel.

We've stayed here before and liked it. Now, DCH has removed the AUX function from every tv to ensure that if you don't want only basic cable (they have no movie channels) you will have to pay for their movies. In other words, you cannot plug in your little dvd player so your kids can relax with a favorite movie. You can, however, pay additional to order their odd selection of PPV movies. The front desk staff explained that it is “too complicated to change anything on the tv.” Uh...really? She referred me to the guest services manager. I left two phone messages for this person, three days apart, the last one including the information that my VISA card bill listed a higher charge from DCH than was printed on the receipt which I had in my hand. I left both my home & cell numbers. No response!!
In addition, here were several small items on the floors next to the beds--two buttons, an old crumpled receipt, crumbs, and a hair band, making me wonder about the cleanliness of the room. My husband went over to the lounge to buy an expensive piece of cheesecake and brought it back to the room--it was still frozen, because it was from Costco. The maid opened the door at 9am without knocking, which was creepy. Great tubs and we liked the location, but this money-grubbing tv policy is a deal-breaker for us, especially as our kids relax in a strange room by watching their current favorite, and are able then to go to sleep; and getting zero response on my concerns, particularly the financial one, has soured my previously much more positive view of this hotel. When winter comes and tourists leave, Alaskans like us will make another choice when we travel to Anchorage, so I think the management is being short-sighted as well as unresponsive.

We spent two nights here after a cruise. It is very convenient to shopping as well as restaurants. The breakfast was very good for a hotel breakfast and had plenty of variety. As has been mentioned before the bath tub was an awesome treat and the bubble bath being provided was a bonus! If we get the opporunity to go to Anchorage again we would definitely stay here again.

Overall, the hotel is great value for the dollar considering that Anchorage is not cheap!!! The bathtubs are super comfy, huge!!!! I soaked virtually everyday after hiking. The rooms are nicely decorated, clean, large with a good layout. Did not care for the cheap covers on the beds but that is incidental. The breakfasts are decent and hearty but not for those watching what they eat! The service was good but not exceptional; the front desk, though helpful, could not offer information about rentals, sites to see, etc. Would stay again once I know Anchorage better. It is right at a local bus station/terminal that can transport you downtown cheap and quick. There is no 24 restaurant onsite but a mall is nearby [mall food, yuck!!]. Check out the area's organic coffeehouse just north across Dimond Blvd.
