We enjoyed the room. Had great view of trains coming in. This used to be nice apartment building years ago.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had nIce 1 bedroom apt. Everything was great except for the couch. It is outdated and uncomfortable. The location is excellent. Short walk to downtown. Weekend market is 1/2 block. Alaskarailrod right below. Had a nice view. We were pleased with our choiceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay downtown"
Hotel was close to everything tourist-y, walking distance to anything downtown. Great staff, very comfortable beds, breakfast delivered to the room. We had a full kitchen and large living space, so we could do our own food, and had tons of room to relax if we needed a midday rest! The hotel is very close to the coast and train line, which went 24 hrs. […] This was the only real problems that got in the way of total comfort. Overall good for the price!

"Great hotel in good location"
This suite-style hotel was two blocks off the main drag, so it was convenient to the tourist area. Our room faced the train station, but the train whistles never bothered us due to the excellent windows. It was fun to watch the cruise ship buses pulling in and out. If we are ever in Anchorage again, this will be our hotel of choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location to the railroad station"
The hotel staff was very attentive and friendly. We were able to walk directly to the railroad station the next morning at 5:00 AM within 3 minutes ( no need for a taxi). The hotel is older but very clean. My room had a kitchenette which would have been great if we were staying for an extended timeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to the Alaska railroad station, which is very convinience if you are going to take a train. Very kind and helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"convient to the town."
Service desk was friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Located in great tourist friendly neighborhood"
The hotel is beautiful; looks like a 1950's hotel that's been completely remodeled, but still has the charm of that era. The down side of it is right next to the railroad yard and you can hear the trains at various times of the day and night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not your average hotel room"
I enjoyed the "one bedroom apartment" feel instead of a simple room with a bed. It was great having a mini kitchen and a separate bedroom. Didn't care for the $5 charge to use the internet to print a boarding pass etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
"anchorage grand hotel"
near the trainstation, friendly staff, not luxurious. A few blockd to the center of town and restaurants. Reasonably pricedGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just over the hill from downtown"
Nice small place, a few blocks from downtown. Easy walk unless it's really snowing. Quiet place except for the trains on the N. side that insist on blowing their horns even in the middle of the night. Close to the brewhouse and Snow Goose brewery. Continental breakfast is a bag of store-bought stuff - give it a pass. Rooms are big and beds are very […] comfortable, but bathrooms are very small with no counterspace. Good budget hotel close to downtown. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Steps away from train station"
It was a large and comfortable room with a kitchen and sitting area. Much more spacious than I expected. The furnishings were practical, nothing lavish, but comfortable. It is the hotel closest to the train station and they help travellers get off for the early train.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Go with the Westmark"
I think this hotel is mainly for big families, or for people who are going to be staying in Anchorage for longer periods of time, and will therefore need a kitchen. The wifi is WEAK, their breakfast is SPARSE, and the have no other real amenities (i.e. there's no hotel bar, there's no coffee in the lobby, there's no fitness center, there's no hot-tub, […] etc).

Great place for the money, kitchens are a real plus for longer stays, would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location next to railroad terminal"
This hotel was in an excellent location, next to railroad station. The rooms were huge and very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I liked the continental breakfast that was delivered to our door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"comfortable stay; great location"
this was my 2nd stay here (in past 5 yrs). hotel employees were very friendly & helpful; my room/suite was large & very comfortable. I'll stay at here every time I need a room in Anchorage.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient to train depot"
the location is the best. you can walk down the ramp to the train depot or just a few blocks to the coastal trail or downtown. the neighbourhood looked clean and safe. we had a suite with a nice living room and a kitchenette which would be convenient if you plan on staying a few nights and like to cook something simple or just warm up leftovers. The […] continental breakfast include a bowl of instant oatmeal, a granolar bar, and a box of apple juice, all organic and healthy, delivered to your room. You do hear the trains sometimes but it did not bother us at all. We had a good night sleep. will definately stay here again if in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very comfortable place to stay!"
The room we had was very comfortable and quite large - included a mini kitchen. Very comfortable bed. I think we got a great deal through the internet because we paid a lot less than their standard discount rate (AARP). Only drawback is you can hear the trains coming through. It's within walking distance to many things in Anchorage. If we can get […] as good a deal, we would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Alaskan Railroad"
The room was very spacious and well furnished. The location being close to the R.R. was excellent, since we were traveling by train to Seward the next morning. We did have to leave the windows open and use the fan provided to cool the room, so that we were able to rest at night. Since the room was rather warm when we arrived is was somewhat uncomfortable […] for quite a while. We would have preferred air-conditioning especially since it was late July. The biggest problem was the noise from the train whistle during the night since we had to leave the windows open. This did effect our being able to rest the night that we were there.

Was worried at first, older hotel but has the most comfortable beds and pillows. We slept so good and the gentleman at the desk was so accomodating on giving us directions to restaurants. We were very pleased.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel met all our needs for our short stay in Anchorage. Walked to the train station. Hotel is in good shape despite being older. Surprisingly spacious. Our room was separate from the living space.Continental breakfast delivered to the room early in the morning. We got bagels and oatmeal. It is in a good location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"shopping and close to train"
thought it was great fact it was apt was pleasant surpriseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for the price"
This hotel was the best find we had in Alaska. It was a four room suite with a living room, kitchen (complete with dishwasher), bedroom and full bath. Each morning they would leave a continental breakfast at your door that you could prepare in your own kitchen. We got oatmeal, bagels, juice, and granola bars. Coffee and tea were already in the room. […] Each afternoon you could go to the front desk and get warm cookies. It's within an easy walking distance to downtown and the parking is included in the room fee. It doesn't look like the finest hotel but I would stay there again and again.

Great location. Nice rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"all blocks are very short in Anchorage"
It was a lovely hotel, very close to all downtown activities, personable and helpful front desk. 6 blocks takes about 4 minutes to walk. Directed us to the Snow City Cafe for breakfast (a must eat here place)- Thanks for making our stay in Anchorage nice. Close to the big walking trail.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Anchorage Stay"
We arrived before check in, but hotel was glad to keep our luggage until we returned to check in. When we returned our luggage was already in our room. A young lady named Georgia was more than helpful to us. Every requested we made to her was immediately full filled.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very noisy! Next to railroad. Whistles all night. Thermostat did not control room temperature. Our t-stat was in the off position but the heat never shut off. Will not stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay"
This is a really nice place to stay in Anchorage. It has a great location being on the edge of downtown overlooking Ship Creek and the inlet; 5 minutes to trail and heart of downtown. The suites have a kitchenette, bedroom and living room. The bed is firm and very comfortable. Continental breakfast and a newspaper are delivered every morning to your […] door and cookies, candy and fruit are always in the lobby. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to help you arrange transportation, find what you are looking for, check in early and store luggage. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenience and home-like ambience"
The Grand is a converted apartment building on the edge of the Anchorage business district. The "room" actually consists of a bedroom, bath, living room and kitchenette. It is an older building, but has been well-renovated. It is in easy walking distance from most downtown businesses and offices. The Alaska Railroad terminal is just down the hill, and […] some people object to the train sounds, but others enjoy them. The only comfort and convenience drawbacks are that the lobby is down a couple of steps with no obvious access for people with mobility issues. Like most hotels in the far north, the Grand is overheated in the winter. If you are used to cooler inside spaces, you will need to turn the heat down a bit. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Had a wonderful stay!"
Everything was quite splendid. The entire place was clean and well maintained. The bed was super comfy and very plush. The staff was very nice and helpful, and they even baked cookies for us! The location was perfect, being within walking distance of the mall and various bars. They offer a free continental breakfast too! Overall had a great time for […] a great price!

We live outside of Anchorage and travel there frequently. We have stayed in many different hotels and really enjoyed this one. It is in a nice neighborhood and the room is very large.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall, very nice"
Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Room was older, but updated and clean. Only complaint was the freight train running behind the hotel that blew it's whistle several times during the night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel and spacious room!"
i was shocked at how big the room was! i don't know if all rooms are like this (with a kitchenette, separate bedroom, living room)..but i really loved the fact that it felt more "homey" than all the other hotels. bathroom was a bit small..but nothing to complain about. kitchenette had pots/pans/utensils/full fridge and freezer/plates/cups...but no […] dishwashing soap or sponge. my only complaint would have to be the way continental breakfast is served. you check if you would like it or not on a door hanger and leave it outside your door for someone to come by the next morning and drop it in front of the doorstep. they don't have a lobby or an actual room for the breakfast, so they deliver it to you. manageable..but breakfast was lame, consisting of plain bagel, cream cheese, breakfast bar, apple and can of apple juice. the oatmeal was worse of all..just add hot water. besides the breakfast, everything else is great..and it's definitely a short walk from the train station to the hotel (5 mins).

"Free Breakfast Was Pitiful"
My husband and I stayed two nights at this hotel and although we had a comfortable stay, I would not stay again unless I was planning to catch a train. This hotel is not located conveniently for shops and restaurants if you do not have a car. A 15min walk uphill will get you to a few cafes and souvineer shops, however, 5th St Mall is about a half hour […] walk. We arrived at 8pm and could find nowhere nearby to buy food and its quite seedy walking around the deserted streets. The free breakfast was pitiful. Delivered outside your door, it consisted of a stodgy muffin/museuli bar/apple juice popper and oats. Considering we've had complimentary breakfasts at several other hotels during our trip that were delicious, this one was very disappointing. It was a snack - not a breakfast.

"Nice hotel close to everything."
Location cant be faltered. Rooms out dated the decor but hotel staff lovely. The people cleaning rooms are rubbish didn't make beds properly forgot toilet paper ect. But I would stay again rooms are huge and we weren't in them long enough every day to make any impact. Overall great stay loved Anchorage.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good base for stay in Anchorage"
5-10 minute walk (with cases) from convention center where we were dropped off after cruise. Room was 1 bedroom apartment - very spacious with kitchen. Decor a bit dated but still clean & tidy. bed really comfy :-) . Continental breakfast was included - & was good (bagels with Philadelphia, porridge, cereal bar & juice) - plenty to keep you going. Hotel […] receptionist very helpful - chased up taxi when it hadn't arrived. All in all a great base for our stay I Anchorage Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenient location, large suite, older but impeccably clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location except for the train station behind the hotel. The whistles are loud and start about 12 AM until 3AM. Front rooms would be best. If you go to bed early then the noise not a real problem. Very comfy room. Bed was nice and the living room with a sofa bed was a great addition. Breakfast from the hotel delivered to the room was just great. […] Bagels & Philly cheese, juice, musli bars and oatmeal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The suite was very spacious and clean, but the noise from rail and road traffic at night was a problem. The continental breakfast was limited. Close location to the railway station was an advantage.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A good comportable clean hotel in a good location. A spacious clean, well appointed, room. The staff did a great job. The hotel was by no means luxurious but was good value for the money we paid. We found the availability of a cloths washer and dryer most helpful following a week long cruise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"would stay again"
we arrived in the middle of a heatwave. there was no air conditioning as they usually do not need it. there was however a fan which was much appreciated.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was close to everything, it was clean,could do with a bit of an upgrade. The only downfall I have with the hotel is that it was close to the train station and you heard the trains a lot.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and conveniently located hotel"
Great location when coming in by train. Easy walking distance from downtown. We had a room with a view of the mountains which was a bonus. Fresh fruit available daily plus cookies baked daily. The hotel has a nice feel to it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Anchorage Grand May, 2013"
The hotel is good, but the proximity to the rail yard is a bit of a problem.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel very surprising even though very close to the railway line. We were located at the bakc of the hotel. You ned to get a front room. The railway station sells good coffee. Short walk (2 blocks to downtown anchorage). Location central.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easily within walking distance"
We stayed in Anchorage for an extra day before our Alaskan cruise. There were 8 of us ranging from age 12 to 75. We all walked throughout downtown. And we took cab or shuttle bus to get to the horseback riding and to the zool Very decent hotel with excellent location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Stay, even with the trains!!"
Only problem with the Hotel is it's proximity to the railway station. The requirement of American train drivers to sound their horns on a regular basis can keep you awake.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just a step away to all Anchorage sites"
We arrived at 3am and the staff were there to meet and greet us. We had parking for the duration of the stay at no charge. Breakfast was included in the price. Weekend market accross the road, other sites a few blocks away. Only downside was the Alaska Rail being outside window, but once I was asleep I could not hear anything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
