“Charming and Convenient”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

What a surprise that awaited us when we arrived. Our (my sister and I) room was large, clean, and on the quiet side of the street. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, we were early. They called me on my cell phone to tell me when it was ready. The staff, all who we encountered, were very polite and helpful. The location is very central, convenient to shopping, restaurants and places to see. Breakfast is included and includes: waffles, toast, bagels, etc. Tea and coffee is available for most of the day as well. Can't say enough about this place, really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Any room is fine. I hear room 215 is haunted but can't say for sure.

My father and I stayed in a Junior Suite, and we enjoyed the space and privacy of our room, it was massive. There were two queen beds, with a wardrobe dividing the space between them. And there was still plenty of room for a 3 piece lounge suite. The room rate included continental breakfast in the bar downstairs, and we were quite satisfied with the options available. This place had character and did not feel sterile like the chain or modern hotels.

Room Tip: if you want a twin room, I can recommend the Junior Suite, I had to take a panorama photo to fit it...

We enjoyed terrific service in a very nicely appointed room at the Historic Anchorage Hotel. We found it centrally located to restaurants and places to see. The hotel is a very nice alternative to the big chains. Vic and Nancy.

My husband and I were visiting friends and sightseeing around Alaska in June of 2014. While we were traveling around the state we used the Historic Anchorage Hotel as our base in Anchorage. The location was superb, the room was lovely and the owner and staff were very welcoming and helpful. There was breakfast included which was just what you needed before venturing out for the day or days. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends and family. It was our "home away from home!"

Last hotel of our vacation. Great place to end. Sizable rooms. Walking distance to everything. Would stay again. Price was high but so is everything in Alaska during tourist season. Hope to see a ghost but was not that lucky.

We (two couples) used the Historic Anchorage as our base as we toured Alaska. The location is wonderful - a short walk to the Alaska RR station and to the best restaurants and shopping in ANC. Terri, the manager, and her staff, particularly Nick, Phil, Taylar and Sara, are the best hoteliers ever. They accommodated our every wish where possible - stored our excess luggage when we took side trips, upgraded us if possible, recommended restaurants and local activities. We loved the ambiance of staying in the first Alaska frontier hotel coupled with luxury linens and comfy beds. We did not need a rental car and cabs were always available at the door. The breakfast was very nice with freshly made waffles and gourmet coffees. We felt like we were coming home when we returned from touring Denali and from a fishing trip to Homer. This hotel is not for the "I need a chain hotel" traveler but is a joy for those of us who like to travel a little off the grid and enjoy the uniqueness of an area.

Room Tip: The street side rooms can be noisy since the sun doesn't set until midnight and folks stay out l...

We stayed here while coming into alaska before our trip and after the end of the trip. It's a charming place. Alittle old but endearing. Find a better place for breakfast though. It's nothing to rave about. There is plenty of shopping around and lots of small places to eat.
