“Perfect for an overnight in Anchorage!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We arrived in Anchorage on the 10:15pm train from Seward and took a taxi to the Dimond Center Hotel tired and ready for bed. We were so happy to find a clean, spacious, comfortable room waiting for our family of five! The beds were comfortable, the blackout shades were great and in the morning, the continental breakfast was perfect! Checkin and checkout were both painless and the price was right. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning on visiting Anchorage!

The lobby of Dimond Center Hotel has very nice native artwork and decoration. The computer is right there and convenient for making ongoing travel arrangements. No pool, but big soaking tub is in each room. Run by capable and friendly Seldovia native people. I would score this hotel very high on the comfort and convenience scale. There was even a sparkling coin laundry on our floor, perfect for travelers spending a few days in Anchorage between the Kenai Peninsula and Denali. It was easy to run into Anchorage to rent bikes, go out to dinner, or pick up a glacier excursion to Whittier. Breakfast was excellent. For sure you knew you were in a typical American shopping and dining area if you stayed near the hotel.

This hotel is a good place to stay, particularly if you are planning on doing and extended backpacking trip. It is located a little far from the airport, but there is a shuttle that will take you to the hotel. There is a Wal-Mart Supercenter across the street, and a Sportsman's Warehouse and a mall located near by. So we were able to obtain all of our last minute necessities by walking to these locations. The hotel itself is very modern and clean, and they even had a small restaurant/bar. They had a full breakfast which tasted fine to me and it is even located near the bus depot that would take you downtown if you didn't have a car (which I didn't have at the time).

Good location, large rooms, spa bathtub in the room. 1,75$ bus #2 and#60 going to downtown , bus stop in front of the hotel. Free schuttle to airport. Walk in freezer ( great for fisherman) . I would recommend it.

We stayed here for one night. We had a room with the jetted tub/separate shower. The room itself is very spacious. The bed was so comfortable too. It was so nice to relax in their jetted tub. There was also a mini fridge/microwave in the room. They also have a very nice free continental breakfast...loved the waffles with fresh strawberries/cream. You do get a nice variety of breakfast items to choose from. The hotel is conveniently located to a lot of good restaurants and shops. Yes you're right next to the shopping mall. Great location!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for discounts when booking this hotel. Also they will give you a coupon book good fo...

Stayed for four nights post Alaskan cruise there are plus and minus points to the hotel:-

Plus. Free wifi
Free shuttle bus to & from Airport
Free car park
Huge bathtub
Comfy bed
Clean
Fridge and coffee maker in room

Minus:- Location, a shopping mall, car park and very large Walmart was the neighbours!!
Reception staff not helpful appeared unhappy and disinterested
Breakfast. Not good quality cooked food, paper plates and plastic cutlery
Plastic cups in bedrooms and breakfast room would have preferred proper crockery
Hourly bus service into town and takes 40 mins approx to get there so feel quite isolated

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from laundry and bar/restaurant as they will be quieter

My husband and I stayed at the Dimond Center Hotel for a week. The room had plenty of space, and the configuration of the bathroom / sink area was convenient for two people to get ready at the same time. The hotel was clean and well-maintained, with computer access and pleasant décor. Shopping, restaurants and public transportation are within short walking distance. The eating area had a limited menu but good quality food for the evening meal. We like having breakfast available in the hotel; I would have appreciated a few more gluten-free breakfast items.
