Historic Anchorage Hotel is an excellent choice for your time in Anchorage, whether you plan to stay in the city or explore the more remote parts of Alaska. Right in downtown Anchorage, its convenient location is close to the city’s many shops, restaurants and museums and just a 5-minute drive to the airport.
When it was built in 1916, the building originally acted as Alaska’s central meeting space and today it’s on the National Register of Historic Places. Rooms here are comfortable and well appointed, and the generous full breakfast offers a hearty start to your Alaska adventures.
The Historic Anchorage Hotel has a total of 26 rooms, each with a slightly different layout due to the historic nature of the property. All of the rooms are equipped with a large screen TV and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Standard Rooms have either one or two double beds in the rooms, and Executive Suites and Junior Suites also have a breakfast bar and small living area.
Set right in the heart of Anchorage’s very walkable downtown area, the hotel is located just a couple of blocks from the city’s 5th Avenue Mall as well as a number of bars and restaurants. Guests also have easy access to the Coastal Trail walk along the shoreline, with views of the mountain range in the distance.
