Terri Russi manages a very nice hotel. Terri assisted us with our booking and helped us with tour bookings. Based on previous reviews we requested a room off the main street. It was big, quiet and also had good blackout curtains. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. A nice friendly atmosphere. We were also fortunate to take advantage of an excellent rate. We would definitely stay again - without hesitation.

I love the Historic Anchorage Hotel! Terri is the GM and she took care of my reservation personally. The Historic is a boutique hotel and a one of a kind. The rooms are very well appointed, the beds are so comfy and the hotel itself is definately a historical site. Breakfast is served every morning in their own breakfast/coffe bar, just like a separate coffee house. Everyday when you come back from your Alaska adventures, you will feel like you are coming home at the Historic! I highly recommend this beautiful place to stay if you want to stay somewhere unique to Anchorage with wonderful staff and great accomodations (and VERY reasonably priced!) AND you cannot beat the location - right in the middle of downtown Anchorage! Enjoy!

I stayed here in February for a business trip. It is an old hotel, so it does not necessarily have all of the in room amenities that you might be used to, like comfy chairs and large bathrooms and it may be a little more "lived in" than newer hotels. But it is a very friendly, unique place to stay within walking distance of some great restaurants (Glacier Brewhouse, Orso's, Club Paris). The staff was very friendly. Workout room is nice. And I really enjoyed the different atmosphere. And the price was very good.

Stayed four days. No air conditioning, so fan was helpful. Wonderful location downtown, easy walk to mall, museum, etc. Noise from nearby bars on weekend, but quiet at other times. Georgeous decor, lots of character. Parking is now $8/day. Would supplement breakfast with some protein, but waffles/bagels/yogurt/apples/juice/coffee/tea/cider were all good. Would stay again.

We found it really difficult to find a hotel in Anchorage, the hotels were really expensive and the reviews generally not great. Finally we found the Historic Anchrage Hotel. it was great, the position fantastic, the rooms really roomy and the people terrific. By Anchorage standards it was good value for money, breakfast was included and the use of internet was free. Highly recommend.

My husband & I stayed for 2 weeks in the Historic Anchorage and we would stay there again when we revisit Anchorage. The room was big and comfortable, a fan was available if it got a bit too warm and there was very little noise to be heard where we were situated.
The staff were very friendly and did all in their power to help with enquiries, dinner bookings, travel arrangements etc..
We would recommend it to anyone.

Stayed September 2008

We really enjoyed this hotel and thought it was charming. We stayed the first and last night of our trip and enjoyed both rooms. The first stay we were given a third floor suite, which had a separate sleeping area, tons of windows, dressing area and kitchenette. We asked for a room in the back of the hotel because of the bar noise. On the second stay we had a normal guest room, but also loved it. Very clean and great front desk service. Would stay no where else in Anchorage. Also, during the summer there is a crafts fair one block away during the weekend which was a fun place to spend some time and buy a few gifts.
