“Very nice suite - well located”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I am a frequent patron of Choice Hotels, and this stay was no cost to me. I had not expected such a nice facility. The nice experience started with the free shuttle from the airport, and the driver was personable, answering all our tourist questions and pointing out high spots along the way. Both desk clerks were delightful, made us feel very welcome and confirmed the drivers restaurant recommendations. They also booked our return trip to the airport. They gave us good walking directions to all the places we asked. Al were within 5 blocks of the hotel. The room was nice, with a living room area with desk, sofa and large TV, a small separate area with fridge and microwave, nicely appointed bathroom, with separate sink/mirror and a large comfortable bed with another large TV. Breakfast the next morning was a buffet with eggs, sausage, potatoes, pancakes, toast, coffee and juices. The free shuttle back to the airport was on time and swift. I highly recommend this hotel.

While traveling around Alaska we stayed in this hotel 3 times. It was clean and well cared for, we stayed in 3 different rooms and they were all in very good shape. The complimentary breakfast was quite nice, with each days being somewhat different. Some days there was even a nice selection of delicious fresh fruit.

The first time we stayed there we left a cell phone charger. When we reached our next destination we called and asked to looked for and held on to for our next visit. When we returned they had it for us clearly labelled with the room number and date it was found. Not a big deal, but it was nice to get it back.

The location is very convenient. We spent a day recovering from jet lag by wandering around Anchorage. It was nice to be able to walk to restaurants, the museum, and shopping.

We found the staff to be extremely friendly and welcoming and would definitely stay here again.

Staff is top notch. Property is well groomed and always clean and orderly. Employees and management are always friendly and eager to assist in anything from ordering out for a pizza to directions for the curious traveler. Conveniently located to downtown. No complaints what so ever!

We needed a nice clean hotel with comfortable beds and the ability to do laundry. This hotel was perfect. We loved the suite format that let us spread out into the living room area. The location is centrally located in downtown Anchorage; great if you want to walk to local shops and good food options. The staff was very helpful. We did have the breakfast which was fine. It's definitely better than traditional continental breakfast served in most hotels. We would definitely return.

Not a glamorous hotel but nice; service was excellent, rooms clean, decent included buffet breakfast. Alaska is expensive in the summer and this place was the same at $215++ per night (what I pay in Hawaii!).

They had good shuttle service to the airport, train station and their sister hotel Comfort Inn (almost the exact same layout and service). This hotel is near the Anchorage Museum (well worth a visit). Very pleased with the shuttle service and used it lots (since I didn't rent a car).

The hotel was well situated near the shopping center and the Anchorage museum where you can take a bus to get to cruise ship. Nice to have a separate living room and second TV with a door. Useful when kids are sleeping. The breakfast was ok. The staff were nice. It was expensive but comparable to other hôtels in Anchorage.

Hotel is well located in city center with easy walk to restaurants, etc. Rooms are comfortable and cleaned as well as promptly attended to. Breakfast has bacon and eggs, waffles and more; great for the Alaska cool days. Will be an easy return choice.

Room Tip: Ground floors have people walking past windows.
