"nice place to stay"
I stayed in Anchorage Grand Hotel for 3 nights, the staff there are very friendly, they gave us helpful suggestion about sightseeing. The room is clean, facilities are also good. And it's located in a very convenient place, walking distance to Anchorage Museum, and there are many gift shop stores nearby too.

"The good, bad and ugly"
Good: This hotel has a great location close to the Anchorage train station - an easy walk to/from the platform. The rooms facing the sound and train station have a great view. Plus the room is huge with a separate bedroom from the living and kitchenette areas. Bad: having to keep the windows open (as there isn't air conditioning) is really noisy with train whistles throughout the night. Ugly: The bed was horribly uncomfortable, worn-out and sagging in the middle; frankly, the hotel could use some general upkeep.

"Closest hotel to train for Denali"
Really spacious suite, handy in-room breakfast that included snacks good for the train ride up to Denali. Incredibly friendly staff. They let us leave our large bags checked there while we went up to Denali for a few days, which is the main reason most folks seem to be in Anchorage, to jump off to Denali. The only downside is that being so close to the train station also means being close to the all night long freight trains and early morning passenger train, which are all very loud. Location is also convenient to lots of places to eat/drink/shop in downtown Anchorage, and the shoreline trail system.

"Convenient location"
The Grand wasn't exactly grand for what we paid, it was fine. The location was very convenient being just a short walk to the railroad depot. Although it was stuffy when we entered, the room was spacious and included a fully outfitted kitchen. Since we were booked on an early train to Talkeetna we appreciated the "breakfast in a bag" hanging on our doorknob in the morning.

"Good Choice"
This was a good stay, an overnight between arriving on the Alaska RR from a week in Denali NP, and traveling the next day to Cooper Landing for a week of fishing on the Kenai River. The hotel was centrally located in the downtown area, near the train depot, and close to our favorite breakfast hangout, Snow City Cafe. Our room was more like a suite, with a living room and kitchen, in addition to our bedroom and bathroom. However, access to the lobby was a bit cumbersome, being half a flight of stairs down from the street. The women staff at the front desk were very helpful in assisting with storage of our luggage for late departure, and with our doing laundry.

"Great Room Except For The Train Horns"
This was a great place to stay but I didn't like the train horns about 300 yards away. They didnt blow in the middle of the night but if your relaxing in your room between 6am and 10 or 11pm you will definitely hear them. The only reason I didnt give this review a 5 across the board was the train horns.

Hotel is only a block from the train station - beautiful view in the morning if you like trains! Only a couple of train whistles during the night. Room very clean - was actually a small kitchenette. Corridors very narrow. Entrance had stairs. Serves Continental Breakfast - must pre-order and they make the decision as to what is left outside your door in morning. Staff was very helpful.

"Comfortable bed, spacious suites, great staff"
The rooms were spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Good location, walkable to the main attractions of downtown Anchorage and a nice view of the water, a park, and the train station. From the outside, we were a bit skeptical, but once inside, the condition, accommodations and staff were excellent. The staff was very friendly and they were helpful with information about the area, storing bags for the day, and calling us a taxi. The hotel provides free parking if you have a car. One thing to note was that they claim to include "free continental breakfast". The breakfast was a pre-packaged muffin, bottle of juice, and instant oatmeal that was delivered to the door. Was perfectly adequate for what I needed, but don't expect too much. Also, it is next to the train station so there was the occasional train noise, but they don't run that frequently.

"Some different scents"
The hotel was generally comfortable but smelled old and slightly moldy. I saw some renovations in progress so it may have been from that or improvements are likely coming. Good quality for the affordable rate. Right next to the train station, which is good for a lot of people. About $20 cab ride from airport.

I like the set-up with the bedroom completely separate from the living area. The kitchen came in handy. Good location with the train depot and the place to catch the bus to Denali all within walking distance. Staff was helpful. Althoug without a lot of the typical hotel amenities, I found it quite adequate and will definitely go there again. Warning: If you are a light sleeper, this may not be for you because its close proximity to the train depot.

This hotel may be small, but it's big on friendly service and clean rooms. It is located in walking distance to downtown restaurants, markets, mall and bars. The only downside is it's located right above the train depot. You do hear trains throughout your stay. However, it wouldn't stop me from booking here again. PS the continental breakfast served at your room with a newspaper everyday is awesome!

There was a large fridge and full kitchen in the room. It's located downtown Anchorage which is nice.

"Great hotel stay"
I can't say enough good things about this hotel. First, this is a family-owned business and you are welcomed like family - there are even fresh baked chocolate chip cookies at the front desk. And they are delicious! The owners/staff are so warm and gracious, a wonderful change from the corporate employees at other big name hotels. Second, the room was huge! A full kitchentte, living room, separate bedroom and bath. Kind of like a small apartment. Extremely clean. Very comfy bed, great back support. Third, great location for exploring downtown, bike path along Cook Inlet, and getting to train station for early morning departure. Free wi-fi, breakfast and cookies are a plus. There is a ypga studio across the street and a Starbucks one short block away in the lobby of the Hilton. Can't beat what this hotel has to offer!

We chose this location due to the price and the reviews. While it does not look like one of the best from outside, the rooms are simply perfect for those traveling with toddlers who need an area for the toddler to sleep as to not wake him up. The bed was very comfortable, pillows were very nice, showers had great pressure, and just everything we needed. Thank you!

"good location, good price"
Parking is not convenient. Yes it is very close, but the sidewalk from the hotel to the lot was a sheet of ice... The room was heated like a furnace, good luck if you stay in the summer. Having open windows gives you the sound of trains all night, and if you're lucky enough guests with their windows open talking all night. The continental breakfast is a cereal bar, small muffin, and cup of cereal WITH NO MILK! The rooms are a nice size, seemed clean enough, and location is very good.

While the Anchorage Grand Hotel may not be the newest or most luxurious, it has all the comforts of home in a conveniently located hotel setting very close to all the restaurants and shops of downtown Anchorage. The kitchenette is excellent and the room was kept very clean. The communal office was a bit outdated but the front desk staff was very helpful with directions and suggestions.

"Convenient to downtown and reasonable price"
The hotel was a pleasant surprise. We were looking for a reasonable priced hotel downtown with free parking. We were apprehensive checking in, but soon found that the room was a suite with a separate bedroom and a kitchenette with a sitting area. A television (with lots of stations) in separate rooms was a welcome change from our previous stays in 5 other hotels in Alaska. Parking in Anchorage is a nightmare and it was nice not to pay a fortune for overnight parking. The free hotel parking lot was next door and it was only a short uphill walk (2 blocks) to downtown (a total of 4 blocks to the mall). Many restaurants, bars and stores were within walking distance. The only problem was moving our three weeks worth of luggage down about 5 steps to the elevator. With normal luggage, it wouldn't had been a problem. Complimentary bagels, muffins and juice were delivered to our room in the morning. We ate at the table in our room.

"Convenient value room in Anchorage"
I booked this hotel for the value and amenities. We would only be staying 1 night and hotel rooms for that night were well over $150 for a 3 star hotel. When we first walked in, I was a little unimpressed. The entrance leads you to a short stairwell to get to the lobby which really only is a reception desk. The hotel can use some renovation but were were satisfied with what we got. The ladies that greeted us upon arrival were very nice, helpful and folding the laundry which was a little odd but fine. The room was surprisingly big with a kitchenette and everything you need to cook. We were able to cook our steaks for the night while enjoying the view of the nearby rail station. There was a separate bedroom with a very comfortable bed. It actually felt like an apartment more than a hotel. In the morning, they provided us with breakfast! Nothing fancy or hot, but we received bagels, oatmeal, granola bars, and juice! A plus.

"Hotel chosen as results from Xpedia ratings"
For $2xx per night, pretty good reviews on Xpedia and Tripadvisor, we were expecting a much different and better place. Hotel is located at northern edge of downtown, building has been here for decades, overall condition is good and it's been properly maintained, but it's still old, a little musky smelling, some windows don't work and everything is a 1/2 floor off. Plus the biggest detraction is that is located directly across the street from Alaska Railroad train station and they're horns are REALLY loud late at night.

The hotel was clean and had all that one would want in the way of room facilities - huge sized rooms, great windows, more than adequate furniture, kitchenette, TV, phone and comfortable bed, but in dire need of new sofa and chairs. These were old and greasy looking. It was great to be able to open windows for fresh air, but unfortunate about the noise from hooting trains. The room and bathroom were super clean - excellent! Close to other hotels for restaurants. I would recommend.
