Duke's 8th Avenue Hotel
Ranked #44 of 74 Hotels in Anchorage
Reviewed October 27, 2010

Duke's is directly behind the Dena'ina Convention Centre in Anchorage which makes it extremely handy if you're attending a conference in town. Downtown Anchorage is quite small and easy to walk around in. This made Duke's within a few minutes walk of pubs and restaurants. It was great to have a kitchen facility to make our own meals and in relax lounge area with a comfy sofa. Staff were friendly and the hotel offered facilities for such as a fitness centre and laundry machines. I would stay here again.

Duke's 8th Avenue comprises a number of suites each with kitchen living and sleeping areas. We were given a very warm welcome by Christine and her staff and the hotel represents excellent value for money in a city where hotel rooms are very expensive.

If you need granite counter tops and Toto toilets, this in not the place for you. But if you want value in a clean, safe environment with an accommodating hotelier and personable staff, right downtown with the ability to walk everywhere, then book this residential hotel immediately. Why settle for a room when you can have an apartment? Plenty of hot water, towels and WIFI. Every unit is different so specify your requirements when booking.

Walk 3 mins. to Irish Pub, 5 mins. to Mall with Nordstrom's and J C Penny, 10 mins to shops and restaurants downtown, 10 mins. to Anchorage Museum and sightseeing shuttles. We had this bargain for a whole month!

The hotel cancelled my one-night booking because they overbooked their long-term stays! They couldn't even change my one-night suite booking into 2 separate rooms or to a business suite. Looks like they prefer long-term stays to one-night stays.

This place is dated, but it's reasonably clean. The rooms are outrageously overpriced for what is on offer.

Top points for location, but that's about it.

Duke's 8th Avenue Hotel in Anchorage is a unique hotel in the center of downtown Anchorage. It is ideal for those (business) travelers who are staying in town for several weeks and need a centrally-located residence within walking distance of the downtown business district. It is an older 4-story hotel located on the city's Park-Strip with 25+ rooms laid out as 1- and 2-bedroom furnished apartments with fully equipped kitchens. Many of the rooms have been upgraded with flatscreen TV and remodeled bathrooms and kitchens. All of the rooms are CLEAN and comfortable, although the older rooms show a bit of wear in the carpeting and paint. The hotel is quiet and the resident managers are attentive to the needs of the people staying there. The managers are not always at the front desk during the week but can be summoned quickly by a phone call. Rooms can be rented by the day, week, month or longer. Rates tend to be high ($1800 per month in summer and $1650 per month in winter), but the hotel is so close to town that a rental car is not needed and the price includes all utilities, high-speed internet, a nice little exercise room with the usual machines and weights, and on-site parking (if you do have a car). Laundry is in the basement ($1.25 per wash - drying is free). If you are going to stay in Anchorage for 2-weeks or more, it's a good idea to check out Duke's 8th Avenue Hotel and pay the monthly rate (monthly rates do NOT include the 12% city hotel tax and are actually cheaper than the daily or weekly rates that do). It's an older, but nice hotel and the hotel's cat "Tom" is big and friendly to all of the residents.

A friend told me about this little known hotel..They are remodeling their rooms, so if you stay request one of the newly remodeled rooms. I did and it was fantastic. Charming old hotel that has a friendly family feel. I also enjoyed their new work out room that opened the week I was there! Parking is free, but you can walk to just about everywhere. (Weather permitting, of course)
