This was our first trip to Anchorage and I first came to Trip Advisor to read reviews before choosing a hotel. Frankly they were either real expensive or sounded pretty shady and I didn't know what to do. So needing a place to stay before the cruise and not wanting to spend a fortune I took a chance with this property because of location. I thought it looked like a warehouse on the picture. We were very surprised when we arrived the lobby and staff were nice and our room was really big and nice. We even had a little kitchen we weren't expecting. Everything was really clean and decorated very nice with a lot of nice touches like a separate tap for filtered water in the kitchen and large magnification makeup mirror in the bathroom. The location was perfect, in a good part of downtown, and you can walk to everything and we even had a water view. The price was also very reasonable.

Last day of Labor Day weekend and we did not have reservations for our last night in Alaska. Went in to the front desk around 5pm and asked if they had rooms and what was the rate. Were told they had a senior rate of $116 and they did have rooms. We asked to see one and they showed us one next to the lobby. It looked perfect with a large screen TV and free internet. They told us the ice machine was broken but the small fridge in the room
had plenty of ice. They room was very large with a great shower in the bathroom. Turned out to be the best place we stayed in Alaska. They also had a free schutle to the airport. This would be a great place to stay when first arriving since you could walk to the train station the next day for the wonderful ride to Fairbanks and back.

Price was fair considering the cost of others in the downdown area. Facility is all non-smoking but you can smell the smoke from the bar/restaurant below when you ride the elevator. Not a big deal since it does not reach the room. Facility is worn down a bit but clean and roomy. Very convenient to downtown shopping district and attractions and the Hertz rental car place is right accross the street. We rented a car for one day (quite spendy) but were able to just take it back and park it in the garage later that night and not worry about finding or paying for street or lot parking. Was worth the extra cash to get to sightsee a bit and drive out to the Native Heritage Center (a must see). Make sure to buy the travel discount book. We used it several times and it payed for itself. LOL I sound like a commercial for them. I did lose mine and they have no means to re-issue the book, so don't lose it.

Large room, very comfortable bed, updated bathroom, small kitchenette, fast free internet, but breakfast bar was pretty sad - a couple of pastries, muffins, orange juice and a broken down coffee/hot water machine. Lots of parking across the street. Very friendly front desk service when I checked in.

We have just returned form our Alaska vacation which finished off with 2 nights at this hotel. The hotel is located very central to downtown Anchorage within minutes drive of the Alaska Railroad station ($5.00 taxi ride only because we didn't feel like pulling our suitcases uphill but it is only a few blocks to walk). The hotel also provides free shuttle to the airport on the hour (about 10-15 minute drive). Hotel staff were very friendly our housekeeper was very cheerful. The room was very large (almost like a bachelor suite) and included kitchenette with microwave and fridge. The bathroom was modern and very clean. We were on the second floor overlooking the street and found it to be very quiet. We did not notice any noise at all. Pastries, coffee and juice were complimentary in the small lobby each morning until 0900 and there were numerous restaurants and cafés within a few blocks of easy walking. There is a fine dining restaurant on site for dinner however we did not go there. Wifi was included and we had rapid connection in our room.

We loved this place. The rooms were huge and included a kitchenette which we would have made good use of had we stayed longer. The floor to ceiling window let in plenty of natural light and the curtains blocked out the midnight sun as required.

This is easily the best value in Anchorage, especially during the peak summer season when prices are ridiculously high across the whole city.

The room was clean and comfortable. It was located downtown off of 5th and K. A little close to busy roads and will be noisy if patio doors left open. We did enjoy our stay. We tried to stay another night but they were sold out. We got a good price for a Sunday, but the rates jumped 50% for the next night. Interesting how that works. We would stay again.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the less noisy.
