Re-purposed Military building. Ground floor has the city's offices, and shops. Not sure what all the fuss is about. Sample of local housing if you are interested in life in Whittier. There is a short strip mall across the street which looks much better. Located...More

We stayed here 2 nights. We stayed on the 14th floor facing the water. The view was amazing! You can see the whole town from here. The condo is dirty, old and smelly. Half of the room is modernized but the kitchen, bathroom and furnishings...More

First off, June, the manager, was awesome. This was a very interesting place to stay. The first 12 stories of this building are home to about 80% of the town of Whittier with the top two stories rented out to tourists. Each condo is fully...More

I'm not sure why I'm reviewing a condo complex - however it is extremely interesting and historical. Non-residents can enter the 1s floor where the city offices are and the top two floors where there is a bed and breakfast. About 225 people live here,...More

Begich Towers was originally built for the military. Now transformed into city within a city. Housing, post office, businesses the list goes on. Sound in the hallways carries easily but no one seems to mind. Apartments are old and outdated but comfortable. The people who...More

Do not stay here. There ad on Expedia was very misleading. The accommodations were uncomfortable and dirty. The service was non-existent.

June was super sweet, but the facility was very unpleasant. Our apartment was dusty, hot, dirty, old, crammed with odd furniture and bric-a-brac, windows that didn't stay open, no internet, leftover opened food, musty bedding, and a strong, stale smell of cigarettes as the elevator...More

At one time the entire town of Whittier resided in this building. You stay in condos that some owners rent out. It took a little searching to find the lady in order to check in. Once found, however, she was very friendly and helpful. Although...More
