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...

This hotel was an apartment building at one time and therefore has efficiencies. It was very clean, comfortable and half the price of the other hotels per night. Staff was friendly and a nice plate of cookies was baked fresh everyday. They always had a basket of fruit in the lobby and each morning a continental breakfast was delivered to...

We stayed at the Anchorage Grand Hotel for a week, as we explored that city on foot and took day tours beyond it. We found the rooms much to our liking. They were clean and comfortable and on a very clear day [of which we had few] we could see the top of Denali in the distance. Lucky, David, and...

The staff is awesome, courteous and helpful. They go out their way to accommodate. However the suite is okay, the heat wasn't working in our room, (come on it's Alaska). We were given a space heater. The breakfast left something to be desired. But it's half block from Alaska Railroad and 2 blocks from downtown

The hotel was somewhat dated, yet very clean and accommodating to my large family. It is only a small walk to the downtown area, but for those who prefer, buses are regular in the area. The Alaskan Railway is behind the hotel and on rare occasions a train horn is blared, but it didn't bother us.

Nice older hotel, reasonably priced for the area. Suite with kitchenette. Drawbacks, right next to train station, parking is not exactly convenient and the need new mattresses badly, ours had a horrible dip in the middle that you would literally have to pull yourself out of to turn over.

This is a boutique hotel with a small number of rooms, but our room was a suite with a bedroom, pull-out couch in the living room and a kitchen. It worked out great for our nights in Anchorage. It is very close to the train station, Ulu knife factory and the Anchorage Market, and easy walking distance from pretty much...

Reviewed 24 August 2016 via mobile

For the one night between coming in on the train and leaving for a cruise, this hotel was acceptable but definitely no extra frills or 'grand'ness. The location was very convenient and easily walked from the train station (uphill). We had a handicap accessible room. There was also a kitchenette. Breakfast was delivered, but was a granola bar, microwaveable oatmeal,...
