Loved the location of this hotel as it was right on the creek and nearby to the railroad station. It was also very clean with great staff, a good sleep quality and a decent continental breakfast. Enjoyed that we could walk most everywhere downtown as well.

This hotel is convenient to the train Depot, about a 5 minutes walk, but not much else. They do have a free shuttle to and from the airport and to downtown. You could walk downtown but it's uphill and not a short walk. There is a nice walk along Ship Creek behind the hotel. I would say the room was average. It faced the front of the hotel so there was a lot of parking lot noise. It could be cleaner but for an overnight stay with an early train out it does the job

We stayed here one night. The hotel is a short walk from the rail depot but just a bit too far to walk if you have several large suitcases. We arrived on the Alaska Railroad and the hotel shuttle was already there just outside of the baggage claim area waiting for the hotel guests that came in on that train. Bear in mind the train came 1 hour late. The shuttle is a huge help getting around downtown Anchorage and will take take you to restaurants and businesses in the downtown area as well as to the airport. I want to specifically recognize the drivers Walter and Romano because they went out of their way to be helpful. Thanks guys!! Romano- the fish made it to Spokane in great shape. All of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. They are the best part of this hotel and I would stay here again just because of them. The room was large. The train whistles were audible but didn't bother us a bit since the room was on the creek side of the building. Sure, the bathroom tile isn't perfect but that is a minor flaw. We didn't try the breakfast.

Hotel is right next to the train station, so very convenient if you are riding the train. However, this means there are frequent train whistles, even during the night. They are fairly muted inside the hotel, but this might be a problem if you are noise sensitive or don't like train whistles. Downtown Anchorage is walking distance, but it is up a steep hill. There is a limited breakfast available in the hotel, and a dinner restaurant next door (we didn't try it), but no other meal options. They do have a fairly frequent shuttle to the the bus depot and the airport which is convenient.

Way overpriced for getting mold in bathroom, filthy carpets, broken tiles in bathroom floor, dirty bedding, sour milk at breakfast, and to top off the stench of thousands of rotting salmon carcasses from creek 20 yards away.... couldnt wait to leave.
