This place is comfortable, convenient and clean. The location is ideal, being near shopping and downtown. The restaurant was such a surprise with excellent food. I will stay here again, and I hope that will be soon.

Very well located, clean, comfortable lodging. We had no problems. Has a convenient, good restaurant in the building. I don't have much more to say, but TripAdvisor makes me add this last sentence to reach some minimum number of words.

Stayed here August 27th 2016. Customer service was great, from the way we were greeted in the lobby to any inquiries we made. Check in and check out was a breeze. Rooms were clean,comfortable and spacious. Complimentary coffee in the lobby was a bonus. We booked using air miles so I was unsure what service we would receive but it... More

Hotel was oke, but we kind of expected a little more considering we paid about 200 dollars a night. The hotel was fine, but a little outdated (could use some refurbishment) and a little far away from everything.

This is the only place I stay when in Anchorage. Excellent staff, very comfortable and clean rooms, coffee is delicious and always on, and the restaurant is top notch. Easy access to airport and in and out of city.

Fair price for last minute need for a hotel room, professional staff, clean room! Not far from the airport, and plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. Staff was very friendly, professional, and willing to help with all questions.

We stayed here due to the good rate and it was on the recommended lodging list for a convention we attended. It is easy to find, right off of the Seward Highway. It is within 15 minutes to any of the main locations you are likely in Anchorage for, medical, less than 15 to Providence Hospital, ANMC and related clinics,... More

Very friendly staff, quiet location in spite of being on the corner of two major thoroughfares. Comfortable beds, great amenities. Not the newest hotel but quite well maintained and reasonably priced.

The room was very pleasant. The beds were very comfortable. The location was excellent for our purposes. I thought that breakfast in the restaurant was quite good. The only negatives were the super warm elevators, and the fire alarm that went off in the middle of the night when the kitchen staff was degreasing the grill.
