We stayed here for three nights, after catching the train in from Denali National Park. At first we were delighted with the location of the hotel, a five minute walk from the train station and smack bang in the middle of downtown action. However, that night (and the subsequent nights) it was apparent that the trains and ships in port like to toot their horns - repeatedly and often, and it is so loud it comes straight through the windows of the hotel room. And this continues into the hours past midnight, with only a few hours of respite before they start up again at 5am or so. And we're not talking distant train tooting sounds either - it's like standing right beside them. Ugh.
However, the hotel room was great - a whole apartment with kitchenette, separate bedroom, dining and living, as well as a decent-sized bathroom. The check-in staff were a bit disinterested and brusque, but they were speedy which was good.
If we were to visit Anchorage again, I would probably stay somewhere else because of the noise issue, but if you are a heavy sleeper, you cannot beat this hotel for location, price and quality.
