A special shout out to Erica at the reception for being super accommodating and professional to our requests late at night !! We asked for a room change twice because it faced the parking lot and she complied without any hesitation.
We stayed at this hotel twice (1 night inbound and 1 night outbound) during our trip to Anchorage. In between, we stayed at the fancy Captain Cook for a conference but the HIE beat out Captain Cook hands down in every area except for its history, downtown location and views. The HIE hotel is a no fuss everything you would need is provided, kind of hotel. The location is super convenient. We arrived past midnight and got to the hotel in a rental car from the airport in less than 10 minutes. The rooms looked new and are very well designed and spacious. We liked the fact that there was a microwave and fridge in the room. The wifi . Parking is convenient. Breakfast hours are very convenient and the breakfast was satisfying. Some rooms face the parking lot at floor level which was an issue for us. Also, like everything else in Alaska during the tourist season, it is priced higher than we would have liked to pay. But to be fair, it was no more expensive than other comparable hotels. But other than that, what's not to like about this place ? Would definitely stay here again !!!
