My elderly parents and I stayed in this hotel for one night in between the Fairbanks-Anchorage and Anchorage-Seward trips on the Alaska Railroad. Its greatest advantage is its proximity to the Alaska Railroad. While a shuttle is available to meet railroad passengers--a service that was very timely and convenient in our case--the property is also so close to the train depot that many people could walk very easily. Whereas walking to many other downtown Anchorage hotels from the train station would involve chugging up a long staircase, the walk to this one is short and flat.
The hotel itself is nothing to rave about, though the front desk staff were very friendly and professional, and hot cookies were available upon our arrival. The self-serve breakfast area was convenient as well. The rooms were spacious, but showed considerable wear. I'd recommend a different hotel for those that plan to spend time in Anchorage--the same staircase that I saw train passengers climbing would also await anybody seeking to explore downtown--but for people that just want a convenient stop in between trains, this is a very convenient choice.More
