I stayed here for a week on a business trip in January. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. This is an old hotel that has been updated consequently it has some quirky features. The heat was a radiator that put out plenty of heat, even in winter. The room key was an actual key. I really liked that the...

I last stayed here in 2005. I've stayed at several other places in ANC since. I made a reservation at another place this time, thinking it was this one. We arrived late, tired, cold, and hungry, only to realize I had a reservation at the wrong place! Without missing a beat, we were given a beautiful room, and with a...

We planned a winter getaway to Talkeetna via the Alaska Railroad and wanted a hotel convenient to the train. We prefer historic lodgings to cookie cutter options so were delighted to find The Historic Anchorage Hotel. The lobby and rooms are lovely. We especially enjoyed the junior suite.

Hands down I was very happy with my selection of this hotel because it had character and charm. Rooms are accessed with a brass key, not a digital card. The small lobby includes a fireplace with a chess table, reading material and a guest log book for recording ghost sightings. Staff was friendly and efficient. Hotel offers bare bones amenities...

We really enjoyed our stay at The Historic Anchorage Hotel. The staff were friendly on check-in and check-out. The room was a great size and bed was very comfy. Nice buffet breakfast. Good location for down-town. I would return.

We stayed in the Historic Anchorage Hotel for two nights before travelling to Whittier to do an Alaskan Cruise. I really liked this hotel – our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The hotel was built in 1916 and still retains some of its original charm. The lobby is very quaint. The hotel is centrally located (Anchorage is not a...

Within easy walking distance to the Anchorage Train station and many great downtown resturants. Adjacent to the downtown Anchorage Hilton. We had a clean, comfortable room. It has no air-conditioning, but if the room is stuffy, open the window and run the fan and it is fresh and comfortable in very little time. The price was reasonable for its location....

Not a pretty city and it all seems to be a bit worn down. This includes the Historic Anchorage Hotel. Staff were nice enough but the room was just adequate. Old, but not in a quaint way. Old in a worn out way. I was happy we only had to stay one night. To be fair, nothing else that we...

This is a lovely historic hotel and therefore not super-modern and there were some foibles in the plumbing and electrics commensurate with its age. The room was very clean and an adequate size. There is a free breakfast included and free wi-fi which works with varying degrees of success. I stayed on 2 separate occasions before and after a trip...

I wish we had time to spend more time in the room because it was L shaped and had lots of space for spreading out, including a sitting area, a small kitchenette and places for our bags. Breakfast was adequate and we definitely would return to this hotel. We walked to a lot of sites from the hotel, even though...
