Upon first arrival, and throughout our stay, the staff at this hotel are extremely friendly. They are happy to do whatever they can to make your stay a good one. We were booked here by a cruise company as part of an Alaskan exploration tour. The hotel is located at 5th and G Streets. Most of the action is on 4th Street, just a short block away, so this is a good place to stay if you want to explore Anchorage.
The cruise line checked in for us, so I didn't have that experience. Our room reminded me of one of the old Holiday Inn rooms. (I wouldn't be surprised if this were formerly a Holiday Inn.) The room was clean and comfortable. The furniture, while not new, was what you need. A desk, a dresser, a chair and side table, and a bed. A flat screen TV (maybe 40 inches) is available but I didn't use it.
The WiFi in the room works well, the bed is comfortable, and the shower is good. Like many hotels, a shower-tub is in one small room with the toilet. Outside of that is a small area with a single-sink basin and the closet.
We only had one small problem with the room. When we removed a towel from the rack after taking a shower, the rack fell off the wall. Since there was no other rack, we had to stack the towels on the back of the toilet.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in this hotel.
