First off, it IS an older building. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel to top off your Alaskan holiday, you should just pay more and go for the big ones down town. The elevators are SLOW and small, hallways sort of narrow - it does have an apartment building feel to it. The rooms are not sound proof, but, that said, I've never stayed anywhere that was!
We had a corner room on a high floor. It had this funky L-shaped window part of which looked north over the city lights (and aurora! we saw it!). The other part of the window revealed glorious sunsets over the inlet. If you want the same view, ask for a higher room ending in "10". Microwave, fridge, table, coin-op laundry in basement. I had no problem with pillows or sheets, bathroom, towels - all seemed clean and in order, not sure what the negative reviews are all about. Flat screen TV and free WiFi were welcome. The New Sagoya market is directly across the street - pick up some nice fruit, cheese, and fresh baked bread for breakfast. There is a workout room on the second floor - couple of treadmills, bike, elliptical, and free weights and weight machine. Small but clean, cold water and fresh towels right there, I was almost always the only one there when I used it. Restaurant/bar being renovated or something, so I can't comment on that.
A lovely bonus was the free shuttle to and from the airport and downtown, terrific value, saved us renting a car. The drivers were charming and helpful. I spent a lot of time wandering around downtown, taking a cooking class, shopping, dining out so avoiding driving and parking issues was so very welcome. But downtown is only a few blocks so it's walkable if you like fresh air.
I am returning this upcoming weekend on a business trip and, yes, you'll find me at the Inlet Tower.
