Marginally better than hostelPosted Sep 27, 2015
Pros: Check out. And the pleasant staff.
Location: Right in downtown, above a huge gift shop which played amphlifed loud music from 8am to 8pm, close to the railroad station (10minutes walk)
We booked 3night based on the good rating,and found it well below. The hotel is very old and not well maintained, room is tiny,not even have towl rail in the bathroom,no sound proof at all. Breakfast is cold and poor, used paper bowl to have cereal !!! Hotel is opposite Hard Rock cafe which palys loud musice till late. Unfortunately we stayed during USA's labor day long weekend,music stopped at midnight, then funny peopel cruising in noisy vehicles around the block till 3am, this happened all 3 nights, we only can have 4 hour good sleep everynight. In short the hotel is way over priced for what you get.

Pricey stay at historic older hotelPosted Sep 21, 2015
Pros: Hotel is right downtown. Historic old hotel charm.
Cons: No parking, only options are park on the street or an open lot a couple blocks away. Most room views are of a concrete wall, so check first.
Location: Right downtown so easy walking access to everything.
Good place if you want historic hotel charm and downtown access. Very pricey for what you actually get at the end of the day. If you want more modern luxury, there are better options right next door.

Unable to sleep here due to street noise.Posted Sep 2, 2015
Pros: The hotel was quaint, the staff friendly and the rooms comfortable (except for the noise issue).
Cons: Needs noise abatement improvements.
The most important thing to me when staying in a hotel is being able to get a good night's sleep. I stayed in this hotel in August on a Saturday night. My room faced the street and the noise was unlike anything I have ever experienced at any other hotel. From 11pm to 3:30 am there was constant loud noise from folks out partying- it sounded like New Year's Eve, but still going at 3 am! It also sounded like drag racing was going on outside my window. Obviously, Anchorage does not have any law enforcement when it comes to excessive noise at those hours. I know the hotel cannot control this, but they should not put guests in rooms where the noise level cannot be reasonably managed.

Favorite hotelPosted Sep 1, 2015
Beautiful large rooms, new furniture, great beds, great staff. We like this hotel better than all hotels in Alaska, it was charming. We stayed at what is rated the best hotel in Anchorage the week prior - The Captain Cook, but found the rooms cold & plain there. So happy we booked the Historic.

Historic but....Posted Jul 7, 2015 on Hotels
This is a historic building and i expected it to be a bit more modern than how it was. No air but a fan. Hard to control a temperature. No screens on the windows. It on the main street so if your room faces 4th you will be awake until 11pm with music. Very annoying.
