Loved our stay at the Embassy Suites. Perfect hotel for families. Expensive during the season, but we used Hilton Honors points for a free stay. The shuttle from the airport actually services 3 different Hilton properties and so it took a little while for the shuttle to get to the airport. I was anxious to get to the hotel and start our sightseeing so this was a little frustrating until we got in the van and the driver started telling us where to go and what to see. He was AWESOME! What a great way to start our vacation.
The hotel has 3 different shuttles designated for certain "runs". One is for the airport, one is for downtown and one is for "wherever needed". It worked out really well for us. We took a shuttle downtown and had some lunch. My husband and oldest son then walked over to Avis and picked up our rental car while my youngest (who broke his foot 2 weeks before this vacation and was in a cast and on crutches) waited. We did the reverse when we returned a week later - hubby dropped us off at a restaurant, dropped of the car and then after dinner we returned to the shuttle pickup/drop off spot to return to the hotel. We never had to wait more than 15 minutes.
If you've stayed at an Embassy Suites before, you know that in the evenings there is a Managers Reception with snack food and free drinks. In all the ones we've previously stayed at, the drinks were unlimited for the 2 hours of the reception. At this hotel, you are limited to 2 drinks. They do check your room key for the first drink and then give you a drink ticket for your second drink. After 2 drinks you have to start paying for drinks even if the reception is still going on. I don't know if this is in compliance with a local ordinance or what the reason.
Overall, we loved the hotel and would definitely stay here again the next time we are in Anchorage. There is not a lot to do in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, but all the "action" is just a short drive away via shuttle. Very convenient, but not so convenient that you might be disturbed by street noise.
