Historic Anchorage Hotel

Reviewed August 1, 2014

We were located right downtown close to everything, especially places to eat. The room was nice and clean. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They helped arrange a cab to the airport. They served a nice complementary continental breakfast. Check out the stories about the ghosts in the bar.

Great location, and nice continental breakfast. The beds are comfortable, but note there is no air conditioning. Normally, A/C isn't necessary, but during our June stay, it was 'abnormally' warm. Be sure to read about the various hotel ghost stories in the breakfast room.

Room Tip: We stayed there 3 nights before our trip to Denali, and one night coming back from Denali. The re...

The hotel is centrally located in the heart of downtown. Just steps away from restaurants, shop, visitors centre, attractions. The hotel is charming and well maintained. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Highly recommended.

This hotel is in the heart of downtown Anchorage. It's location makes it easy to walk just about everywhere in the downtown area (e.g. Anchorage Museum, Anchorage Mall) If you are staying there during a weekend in the Summer it's location is caddy-corner from the Farmers Market. This market is a bit of a misnomer in that it is mainly comprised of arts and crafts rather than food but the selection of items to purchase is plentiful. As for the room itself it is very small but also clean. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The biggest disappointment would be the bathroom which was tiny. Also as the daylight in the Summer months (June-August) is between 16-18 hours each day the lack of adequate drape closure allowing in sunlight at all hours is a problem. I think all hotels in AK should be thinking about having Velcro sewn into the curtains/drapes to keep them completely closed. Breakfast served was okay. Containers of yogurt would be a nice addition. Very interesting photography of historic Anchorage is on the walls of each of the three floors of the hotel. I was impressed by the knowledge of the management on the origin of the photographs.

We have stayed at Historic Anchorage Hotel for many years. The location is superb- walking distance to downtown shops, galleries, and the Anchorage Museum. Saturday and Sunday market are closeby.

Manager Terri Russi and her staff are knowledgeable and warm.

Is the only hotel in Anchorage on National Register of Historic Places. Hotel has many historic photos, and was a kind of second home of Sydney Laurence, Alaska artist.

Hotel is clean, comfortable.

Room Tip: Street side rooms can get rather noisy on weekends, but also provides great views of local culture...
