“the Alaskan's low down”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

The rooms are really cool room.
The front counter people are informative and polite. Prim location, I walked just about everywhere down town.
I found the only problem to be the wifi connection.... it was lame sauce.
(it was slow and only worked sometimes)

We actually reviewed this property on another visit but we found ourselves disappointed this time around. The usual concern about finding a parking space was there as they share the lot with a popular restaurant so the lot is often full. Then the friendly clerk said the reason we had to use the lobby to use our computer was that our wing and floor didn't have poor reception----the lobby wasn't a good alternative. Then when we got home there was an extra 50 dollars on our credit card statement----we called and they said not to worry as it'd eventually be corrected----this is the 2nd time we have dealt with this problem staying at this facility. The bill handed to us reflected the correct about that we'd expected to pay and upon calling said that was in fact what we'd eventually see on our statement.

This hotel is clean, and well maintained with a good free parking available, which is rare in downtown Anchorage. Although it is not a five star resort, is is spacious, quiet and has comfortable beds, with an adequate free breakfast. Two computers and printers are conveniently located in the lobby and worked well. It is a good choice for those who have come to see beautiful Alaska, and do not need to have a luxury resort experience. Staff was consistently pleasant and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Hotel borders "green" blocks on one side, so is generally a quiet location.

Very nice hotel. We were booked there on a group tour, but at the end of our trip, our flight was canceled. There were 8 of us and they made it very nice for us to be able to stay and hang out in their common areas until our flight was to leave. They shuttled us back and forth to the airport, numerous times and were always very helpful. It's a great location for downtown Anhorage.

Room Tip: It is very expensive to stay at this hotel in the high season, but they all are in Alaska.

We would not stay in this Hotel again. Its OK to sleep in but thats about it. It has no charm, no character and albeit it has space for a suite, the space is poorly utilised . Do not get a comfortable feeling at all - leave alone luxurious . No charm, no character to the room. One thinks - thank God I just have to spend the night , nothing more. Breakfast also poor . SHuttle to airport, highly unreliable

We Started Our 9-Day Alaska Vacation By Staying At Clarion Suites (August 31-Sept. 2, 2012). We Had Two Rooms Booked By Alaska Tours and Travel, with Double Beds in each suite. We were on the Second Level and It was very comfortable. We Enjoyed the fact that it was central to Downtown Anchorage (We came back days later to enjoy Anchorage) and the shuttle driver from the airport and to the Alaska Railroad station upon checkout was very helpful and front desk staff exceptionally good. Overall, we were pleased. A Hefty Five Claws UP!!! Joe G 'Bear'

Room Tip: Upstairs always better than the first floor

We have stayed at the "Clarion Suites" several times now...it has changed hands a few times over the years. I appreciate that the rooms are suites, allowing more privacy and less noise. I enjoy that they offer a good breakfast...usually consisting of eggs, potatoes and some meat choice of bacon or sausage. They also offer waffles, and assorted fruits and yogurts, orange juice and coffee.
During the summertime rush of Cruise Ships you may encounter a bit of a "rush hour" during the breakfast so plan ahead. Other times of year there's never really an issue.
The parking is free but can get a little hard to find when the restuarant (Benihana's) is still serving as they share the parking lot.

Room Tip: Others have complained about the rooms being too hot...I would have to agree that our room was too h...
