convenient and courteous

The hotel offered a free shuttle both to and from the airport, even though my return to the airport occurred in the evening and I had checked out that morning. The hotel staff was courteous, and the suite arrangement allowed three adult males each to have their own bed!

Parking Issues

The hotel was nice and staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and bigger than we expected. It was very nice to have a microwave and mini fridge in our room. The main issue was the parking. It seems like the parking lot is a good size, however there is a Benihana that shares the same parking lot. Both nights we stayed there we ended up circling the parking lot multiple times, waiting for people to come out of the restaurant and quickly pull into their spot. It was very frustrating after driving for hours or spending all day around town. The parking situation needs to be worked on. If you aren't driving a car, then not an issue.

As advertise, except DO NOT EXPECT WIFI to work.

Good: Everything was as shown in the ads, perfect, except for : Bad: - Hotel receptionist do their job with just the basics... and that is it. No smiles, no "Good morning", no friendly or proactive approach. - WORST: Internet connection was not reliable for several continuous days. Sometimes worked fine, sometimes did not for hours ( Impossible to even send an email or load a light webpage ) Contacted hotel receptionist and they had always a different excuse to justify it ("it is cloudy"). Good hotel to have a vacation, but not much for business purposes or other purposes requiring internet connection.

A few blocks to downtown

Pickup from train station and later to airport flawless. Ample breakfast & coffee all day long. Quiet location and AC. No restaurant but Benihana is steps away. Safe area to walk at night. Park nearby. Overall, a great find.

Comfortable and Convenient

The hotel is located close to the downtown commercial center of Anchorage; good restaurants, shopping and local attractions are readily accessible. Our room was a large suite with separate bedroom, office/sitting room and bathroom. The room was clean and comfortable. A complimentary breakfast was provided; there were plenty of choices, including waffles, eggs, cereal, etc. although the quality was unexceptional. Overall, good value for the money compared to other nearby hotels.

The Glacier Brewhouse is excellent and popular with reasonably priced food and great microbrew beers. It is approximately a 15 minute walk from the hotel, on 5th Avenue in downtown Anchorage.

Wow

Very Friendly Staff. Very clean comfortable room. Great location, far enough from downtown to not get all of the foot traffic and close enough to walk to downtown. Very satisfied with this hotel.
