“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stayed for three nights after arriving in Alaska . It was a great place to recover from the jet lag! We felt the location was perfect and the breakfast a huge plus. This was a good hotel to base yourself in to access other tourist attractions before we started our tour of Alaska.

I stayed in the hotel two nights and loved the historic feel of the place and the rooms. I was in a front room overlooking the street, which was very noisy, so I recommend a room on the back side, away from the street. The manager at the desk went out of her way to be helpful, including running one of my suitcases to the airport after I had forgotten it at the hotel.
The breakfast/bar area is right off the lobby, comfortable, nothing great, but an okay place to hang out for a while before going out or for early coffee.

Room Tip: Get a room in back, off the street, for a quiet sleep. I did get a kick out of the street side as t...

I was recently in Anchorage for a long weekend and based on the good reviews here on TA, we decided to stay at the Historic Anchorage Hotel. Maybe my expectations were too high but I found this hotel to be average only, not much more than that.

The hotel is old, therefore the rooms look somewhat old. The bed and bedding were nice and it was comfortable, but I can't say much more than that. The walls are thin and you can hear people walking around due to creaky floors. But it was never terribly problematic for us.

We never had breakfast there. I'm not sure what time it ran but by the time we got downstairs there was only cold cereal and make your own waffles. Maybe that's all there is for breakfast?

I'm confused by the mention of train noise noted by other review(s) as the tracks are several blocks away but maybe that was because of our room position. We were in the front of the building and did get some noise from the street at night when we had the window open.

The location is very good, right in town and easy to walk to everything. But if I were coming to Anchorage again I'm not sure that I'd seek this place out for a second visit.

Nice hotel with an excellent staff. They were extremely helpful with plans around town. Only issue we had was noise from the trains during the night. If your a light sleeper this could be an issue. The room was well appointed, very clean and spacious.

The breakfast buffet was very good in a lovely setting. It's a shame the bar is only used for breakfast since it was so beautiful.

On our recent trip to Alaska we stayed in Anchorage twice and, both times, stayed at this hotel. It is a great place. It's quaint and charming. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are not large but there's sufficient space for two open suitcases plus human movement. The Continental Breakfast is served in the Old bar and is nicely presented with plenty of variety for different tastes. The location is excellent with a really good sushi restaurant a few doors away. Also, it's close to the train station and the City Market.

Stayed 1 Jun to 10 Jun at the above hotel, great staff, friendly place, couldn't be enough help. Provided good advice about the general area, places to go and see. Only complaint(very minor) was that the TV volumne was preset, Tough to hear the programs if you are hard of hearing. Would I stay here again? In a heartbeat. When able to sleep,(the land of the midnight sun makes it difficult.) I slept well.

Room Tip: 2nd Floor,corner room was nice,
