Quality Suites on 8th is my second pick of hotes in Anchorage. The Clarion several blocks down is exactly the same hotel but with a different name. The only difference between these two are parking (Clarion has more.), noise level (Clarion is quieter) and price. One is cheaper one month and then it switches to the other. Quality Suites is on the corner of C st., right down town, one block from the 5th Avenue Mall. This increases the amount of traffic noise and the amount of people walking past.
It was nice to be within walking distance of Allure Day Spa. The front desk people let me do early check-in at no extra charge and were able to give me accurate driving directions to the less-obvious places in town. The rooms are modern and I love that I can close a door between the bedroom and the living area. Room had a fridge, microwave, and a kitchen sink. I didn't need the pull-out couch but it's there. No resteraunt but there is free breakfast from 6-9.
The only drawbacks were 1) housekeeping knocking on the door Sat. and Sun. at 8:15 am. I could understand if it was my check out day but not days 1 and 2 of a four day stay. 2) The drunk people yelling in the parking lot at 2:30am which I could hear from the third floor.
Yes, I would stay here again.
