The lobby area was very nice looking. The staff were generally unpleasant with a couple of exceptions. The rooms are outdated. It’s definitely not a 600 a night facility no matter what the location.

What a great hotel. Privately owned and has a very personal touch. Manager Brian was incredibly accommodating as well as the bellman Joe. We had a lovely stay starting our trip around Alaska. The breakfast was delicious and staff fantastic! Thank you!!
