They definitely tried hard, but the stay just wasn't quite there...The place is not all that bad, but it could use a bit of an update, and a little better cleaning in the bathroom. Its a pretty old hotel, set up like hotels were configured during mining days, but its been renovated within the last decade or so. The rooms are large, but the breakfast is lame.Wireless does not work, but that's not surprising. Next time, I'll try the Inlet Towers.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Anchorage Hotel for our Honeymoon, and our stay was definately first rate. The location itself could sell the hotel, right in the middle of everything downtown. The attentive staff, beautifully furnished rooms, and free morning breakfast were all exceptional. Don't be fooled by this historic boutique hotel either, they offer state of the art business services too. High speed wireless internet, digital television with pay movies, copies, faxes, etc. Would highly recommend, I know that we will stay here again our next visit to Anchorage

The Anchorage Hotel may be the city's oldest hotel, but with the upgrades, renovations, and services they now offer, they are truly the finest hotel in Anchorage. I travel all over the country on business, and the high speed wireless internet, video on demand television, and complimentary breakfast buffet with Belgian Waffles are excellent offerings that you will rarely find all in one hotel. The rooms have classy cherry wood and patterned furnishings, and the suite that I stayed in had a nice large living area and desk area. The bathrooms were the only things a bit out of date, however they were actually in the process of remodeling the bathrooms during my stay there. The staff was exceptional, always available (even the General Manager) to assist with everything including directions, dinner and concert reservations, secretarial and business services, etc. Their location is great too, and trust me, you will unfortunately get street noise anywere you stay in downtown Anchorage. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants something different (and better!) than all of those chain hotels.

I stayed at the Anchorage Hotel for 5 nights and I would not repeat the experience. First, the plus: it was in a very convenient location and I could easily walk to all the places I needed (and wanted) to go. Next, the negatives: The room was very tiny, it barely fit the bed and entertainment cabinet and there was no floor space to speak of. There was no air conditioning, just an old floor-standing fan which was very loud when I turned it on. Finally, and probably the worst part, my room was next to the street and even though I was there midweek there were very loud drunk people who would talk under my window at all hours of the night, every night. If going to Anchorage, I would strongly recommend the Dimond Center Hotel if you have rented a car.

My wife and I stayed here for part of our 25th Anniversary trip to Alaska. The hotel was near everything we wanted to see. It's close to the Saturday Market, all the gift shops, the mall, The Alaskan Railroad station and it was within walking distance to the coastal trail and the information center and walking tour. I will definately stay here again.
The staff was great!
