Staff very helpful and friendly. We stayed here for 7 days to explore Anchorage and surrounds. Breakfast at your door in a packet worked well for us. Trains do make a noise during the night. Good location to eating places and shopping.

Ok this Hotel is nice, we found the staff ( especially a young Indian man) absolutely lovely, helpful and approachable. The Hotel has a lift but there are about 5 steps going up and down to it from the front door...The rooms are quite big and clean with a great kitchen and sitting area. Beds were comfy.... we found the...

We have stayed here in the past when visiting Alaska and will continue. This hotel is conveniently located to the downtown for shopping and eating as well as the train station. Very clean, roomy and the beds are super comfortable. The best part is the price. Can't beat the price for what you are getting. The rooms have a fully...

Stayed here for 2 nts prior to taking the train to Whittier for a cruise. The location was excellent for all that we wanted to do, which was just check out down town Anchorage and then get to the Train Depot. If you are wanting a 5 Star hotel for a cheap price, this is not for you, you will...

Thanks so much for staying with us, and for the nice "objective" comments. We appreciate the fact that you recognize the difference in rates between what we offer, and what the other hotels offer. One thing we would like to point out about the 5 steps you mention is that we are a handicap-accessible facility, and physically challenged individuals can...

Rooms are okay, they are clean, comfortable bed, kitchen equiped...breakfast is not continental as they say, they put you a bag outside of your room with groceries....no good. Service is TERRIBLE, they are rude, they treat customers extremely bad, with no customer service oriented employees. No early check in, the hotel was empty when we arrived from a 20 hours...

This is the third time we have stayed at The Grand. The first two times were during the Fur Rondy. The location is excellent for all of the downtown activities and they are easily within walking distance. Their rates are very reasonable and when you compare that you have a kitchenette and a small living room, you are getting a...

We were very satisfied with our 2 night stay at the Anchorage Grand - one night when we arrived and the last night before we boarded the train for Whittier. The room was clean and spacious. First stay they had fresh-baked cookies, the second stay there were none, so don't count on it. Easy walk to the downtown area and...

We spent three nights at the Anchorage Grand Hotel, in September. Room was very clean and well equipped. Close to all tourist attractions. Daily breakfast arrived in a bag...yogurt, oatmeal, bar, and a muffin; which lasted until dinner. Counter staff very friendly. We would stay here again.

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel . It is very spacious and an ideal location for touring the city on foot. They have many small touches which I have not seen before i.e. darker washcloths for dirtier tasks, fresh-baked cookies and fruit on the counter, a little breakfast snack and complimentary newspaper at your door in the morning... Pleasant...
