This is a delightful place to stay. There's no pool or fitness room, just large sunny comfortable rooms with enough kitchen facilities to make it possible to avoid expensive restaurants. Right now the sidewalk in front is torn up, but the hotel keeps another door open for easy access to the rooms and the lobby. Parking is in a lot quite close by. The lot is not owned by the hotel, but the front desk gives you a parking permit every day. Reception is friendly; homemade cookies and apples are at the desk for the taking. There is no breakfast room, but the staff leaves a bag full of breakfast goodies in front of your door every morning, along with the newspaper, if you so desire. What's in the bag are bagels with cream cheese, granola bars, and cups of instant oatmeal. We toasted the bagels and added water to the oatmeal cups, heating them in the microwave, to make a pretty hearty breakfast. We stayed in the corner queen suite on the top (5th) floor, which afforded a great view of the train station and the Alaska Railroad trains coming and going each day. The Anchorage Grand is located within just a few yards of many interesting restaurants and shops. You can walk easily to Bear Square, the visitor center, the pretty city hall and many urban parks. More modern-looking hotels are nearby, but we liked the unique nature of this independent hotel.
