You will not find a cleaner, nicer place to stay. The staff was helpful in every way. The location was handy. The rooms were excellent. I judge a room by the bed and the shower and I have never had any that were better than this hotel. The room was very luxurious and had everything you could need. I don't... More

Spent 2 nights here. It was ok. We got in too late for dinner but McD is close. Did not seem as convenient as other places we stayed. No breakfast but that was ok since we had a very early flight! Friendly staff. Pretty lion. Challenged business center pc. If you spend more you can get more elsewhere.

They have recently remodeled this... More

Checked in here on a Tuesday on our way back from Denali National Park. After the beauty and solitude of Denali, it was an adjustment getting back to a big city. The hotel is at a very busy intersection - right next to the Seward Highway which is the one of the two main thoroughfares in and out of Anchorage... More

We stayed for one night the first day we arrived in Alaska. The hotel is a little older but we found it satisfactory and the rooms comfortable. They offered a free breakfast at the restaurant, the food was good and service excellent. We also found all the employees to be friendly and helpful.

Convenient place to stay during peak season in Anchorage, good brewpubs and restaurants nearby, don't bother with the lounge unless you're of retirement age - staff was friendly and attentive, am I up to 200 characters yet

really enjoyed staying here. stayed an extra day just to get some much needed rest from fishing in Alaska. Staff were excellent and very friendly. would stay again. had good washing machines and dryers as we had been travelling for days. this was very helpful. good place for a quiet and safe night rest. does require cab from airport.
