I would really welcome some advice on finding a hotel for our 1 night in Anchorage.
We have just booked a last minute cruise holiday which departs from Seward on the 5th July. We arrive in Anchorage reasonably early on the 4th so only have 1 night but keep changing my mind about what we need!
At first my criteria was an airport shuttle and to be close to the railroad as we will (probably as that's our preferred option!) be taking the train to Seward early on the 5th. The alternative to the train is the bus which departs from near the Egan centre. So I'm definitely looking at downtown locations. And we want to see a little bit of Anchorage in the short time we have so that seems to make sense.
I was thinking of the Comfort Inn at Ship Creek but then read that you get train noise all through the night. Although it will be 4th July, we'll be in bed early due to the time difference (9 hours!!) and exhaustion from travelling. So I was then looking at hotels that aren't too far from the train and have shuttles to the station. And then I read about traffic noise as well!!
Can someone who knows Anchorage well please advise us on this?
The hotels which fit into the right price range are Comfort Inn (as above), Guesthouse Inn, Clarion and Quality suites, Ramada, Aviator and willing to consider anything in a similar price range.
All advice appreciated! But needs to be quick!! We only have just over a week to sort this out!
