This is easily the best hotel in town as it is only one of two and the same people own both. The room was adequate but could use new carpet. The view from my room was wonderful, overlook the little bay immediately below and beyond the hotels back deck. My main complaint was their use of plastic lined fitted sheets. What do they think I am going to do? Pee the bed! They make you sweat at night. The bed would have been wonderful without it, with it, it was barely tolerable. The service was excellent, the restaurants overpriced as is the case most everywhere down here and the meals I had were just average although I didn't dine at the fine dining room on the 2nd floor. I thought I could get a decent price king crab meal here but at $50 for 1 1/2 pound serving, I don't think so, especially since it had to be last years crab. There are better local restaurants within walking distance that give more value for an acceptable meal.

DUTCH HARBOR, UNALASKA, SEPTEMBER 20, 2015

All night the captain labored to get this ship to Dutch Harbor. The seas felt ...
I have visited Dutch Harbor many times and finally decided to take pictures of the graves to upload to Findagrave.com
Most, although not all of the graves were Russian Orthodox.
Many of the people were born in the late 1800's.
An unusual number of people (in my opinion) died in 1902 and 1903.
I have not researched why . . . maybe the flu or a ship sank or something, but I saw a lot of 1903.
Now that the Premier of the 11th season of Deadliest Catch aired last night I can finally share my photos that we took October 11, 2014 of the night before the Deadliest Catch fleet headed out for crab season.
