My mother and I stayed at the Embassy Suites for one night prior to our cruise from Anchorage. I choose the hotel because it was new and although not downtown, well located. The hotel is only 2 years old and still looks new. At checkin we were asked what floor we would like. I chose the 2nd floor but once we looked out the window the 4th would have had better views of the mountains. We actually didn't need two rooms (suite) as we didn't use the other room. The shuttle service was inconsistent. We took the shuttle to downtown and later a taxi to a restaurant (Yak & Yeti Himalayan) not too far from the hotel. The Tibetan restaurant was excellent and crowded. When we needed to be picked up to get back to the Embassy Suites it was quite a wait. I certainly don't mind waiting but when I am told that the ETA is seven minutes and then when no one shows up and they tell me another 10 minutes but still no one comes it was annoying. Luckily the weather was nice as we were standing outside the entire time. Contemplated taking a taxi that drove by but decided to wait a few more minutes. The shuttle arrived finally and in 5 minutes we were back at the hotel. We enjoyed the hot breakfast (omlettes & waffles). Lots of people that day but the cook did a great job keeping up with all the orders. We used the free computers/Internet located directly behind reception to check the latest weather forecast for our cruise. Took the shuttle to the Alaska Railroad station for our ride to Whittier. Our Embassy Suites rate was only $109 before tax and well worth it. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
