Don't book with Expedia. Outside entrance, no elevator, and manager wouldn't take my call or return an email as promised. Did not stay here as I can't carry bags up stairs. Expedia said only manager could change or cancel our reservation. I'll tell you what employee told me. If you call them directly you'll get better rates and service

We appreciate you staying with us at the Anchorage Grand Hotel, and for taking the time to post comments. We do occasionally receive a negative comment about the free "breakfast snack" that we provide to guests to either eat in their room, or take with them to eat later. The "breakfast snack" is a tough one. We often consider eliminating... More

First, the good things. Plenty of space, facilities in the room very good. However, to have the Lobby down stairs with no ramp and heavy bags is difficult. Decor is tired and dated. Breakfast was grim. Barely ever any internet access: there is free wifi but you can seldom get it. Position of the hotel meant that (a) you were... More

I found this hotel to be clean and in a great location. We boarded the morning train for Seward and we were able to conveniently walk to the station. It is also close to everything downtown not to mention right across the street from the weekend flea market. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends.

my husband and i came here for our anniversary and it was absolutely wonderful. the view was just spectacular, and it was super close to a market that was held over the weekends, so that was pretty convenient. i also loved how there was a kitchen in my room, that made my stay a whole lot better.

Room was actually a one bedroom apartment and suitable for longer stays. Clean, well equipped but dated. Evening and morning desk attendants were not friendly but efficient. They need trained to make guests feel welcome and importatnt.

We were looking for a relatively affordable hotel option next to the railway station so we could catch our 6:45 AM train to Seward, that was walking distance to the rest of downtown Anchorage so we could explore in our extra few hours there, someplace clean and relaxing so we could start our vacation on the right foot, with just...

Booked due to the location as i was arriving on the train at night and leaving again on the train early the next morning. Was perfect for this purpose being a less than 5 min walk to the train depot - and would have been ok to stay longer to take advantage of the kitchen and living areas in the... More

This hotel is dated and needs a good clean. It is convenient to resturaunts,shops and the train station, the area is very quiet with the exception of the trains who love to blow their horns with great gusto and no alarm clock is required as the first train is around 5am. We found the reception staff to be uncaring, just... More
