Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Suites Downtown Anchorage
The staff was friendly, the toilet over flowed, first time in the bathroom, tub leaked, the sink would not hold water. Beds were hard and uncomfotable. We found open water bottles in the frig. The pool was closed for repairs. I know this was my fault but I left a shirt in the room when we check out. I called 3 days in a row, I was told that room service would contact me, never happened.
Expected more from a Hyatt propery
The reviewer who said it is run by interns is correct. I had called the hotel directly to make my reservation and had told them there were four people and we would need to use the sofa bed. There were no linens for the sofa bed. When I went to the front desk to request linens, the response was that is not our job. The wi-fi is horrible! The pool and exercise room were closed for repairs. The business center has a computer, no printer, and the computer is used by the staff. I asked the front desk to print our boarding passes (standard service at most hotels) and was told several times it was not possible. I finally spoke to the manager and he printed the passes. Our room on two days was not cleaned until 4:00 pm. The black out curtains were not of the highest quality. The advantages are free parking and the free breakfast.
Moderately priced, clean place to stay!
I was very pleased with my stay. Free pickup from the airport was quick and the driver was courteous. Check in was easy. The room was spacious and well maintained. Not a very far walk from the center of downtown. Continental breakfast was well stocked and included make your own waffles, toast, cereal, and hot foods as well. Would certainly stay here again.
Stayed here one nite pre-land/pre-cruise & enjoyed our stay. Like previous post right in the downtown area with places to eat close by. One of the few spots you could stay at for under $100 (at the time) that was clean with helpful staff & a great complimentary breakfast. Free shuttle to/from airport, trains & even over by museum of history & arts.
Very comfortable, reasonable place to stay. Nice!
We recently stayed 4 1/2 days at this conveniently located hotel. We have no complaints. The staff was very helpful any time we asked a question. We had no problems. The buffet breakfast had more choices than most hotels - scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, waffles, fruit, plus cereals, bagels, sweet rolls. We liked the separate bedroom that could be closed off if one of us wanted to stay up reading or watching tv. It is conveniently located for walking to downtown shops & restaurants (be sure to put on good walking shoes). The free shuttle to rail & airport was very helpful.
Ask for a room with mountain view. It is pretty to look out in the morning (which begins very early) and see the mountains. We recommend this hotel. The bed was comfortable (we had a king) and the room was very clean. Air conditioner worked good. The pool & fitness areas were closed when we were here (end of May). If this is important to you, you might inquire before you book. Our flight left at 8:45 p.m. - we kept our room until 6 p.m and they only charged us for 1/2 day. We thought the rates were very reasonable and since we could walk to downtown, this saved some $$ not having to rent a car or take a taxi. Begin your time in Anchorage with the History Museum or Native Museum - makes you appreciate Alaska and the people there. Free shuttle from the Visitor's center to the Native Museum.
We had a great trip and would stay at the Hawthorne Suites again!
You'd think there'd be no worries with a property associated with Hyatt. But they staff the place with interns who really don't care much about your stay. We checked in and they'd given away our room- although we'd paid for a non-smoking queen, all they had was a smoking king. The air conditioning didn't work throughout the hotel, and yes it was hot. Took them two days to fix it. Some people arriving after us got sent over to the Comfort Inn. There is a Benihana next store, which is nice, but nothing else at all close by. I'd look elsewhere for a place to stay up there- the Sheraton looked nice.
Awesome Place to Stay!
We visited Anchorage just recently and stayed at the Hawthorn Suites LTD. The hotel is a 5 out of 5. The service and staff were courteous and helpful and recommended some great tourist sites. We had to extend our stay and the staff was more than willing to help us out in any way. The hotel is a 3-story hoyel with a view of the mountains from some rooms. They offer a buffet breakfast that can suit both the veg and non-veg person. The maids were also very friendly. It's not a deluxe hotel but we enjoyed our stay here and feel this is one of the coziest places to stay in Anchorage.
Comfortable place to stay
This was a comfortable and convenient place to stay. The rates were decent considering we were able to comfortably sleep our family of six. Too often we need to get two hotel rooms to do that. The place was very clean. The complimentary breakfast buffet was good and included several hot items. Service was friendly, but not very diligent. On two different occasions we had called down to ask for an additional blanket/towel/or pillow and were told it would be right up. Never showed up either time until we went down to the front desk. There is a very nice park right across the street that was a great place to take a stroll.
Nice Big Room's
Only stayed one night but,the rooms were big and clean [ which can sometimes be a problem in alaska ] . It is on the edge of downtown close to lots of places to eat and shop. I stayed at other hotels for the same price about $155.00 that were not as nice also has indoor pool ,workout room.
I would stay there again !!!
A great choice for downtown Anchorage
This seemed like the perfect place to stay, although it's certainly not cheap (not even by Anchorage standards). This is a three-story building with elevator. Each suite has a sitting room, a fridge, and a bedroom, with a window that opens. It was all nicely furnished and well-maintained. There is a parking lot for guests, without extra charge. I especially liked the location, in the good part of downtown.
A park borders the hotel on one side, and there is a pleasant residential neighborhood adjoining the hotel if you walk in the direction opposite downtown.

... It is almost unimaginable to think the only access to most of the state is by boat (if you live by the shoreline), by plane or by dog sled. Add to that the most inhospitable climate and terrain, making Alaskans the most hardy and tenacious Americans by a large margin!
What makes an individual want to live here, I kept asking myself?
(E) We were sitting on the top of the double-decker train with fabulous large windows and a glass rooftop. We could also go out ...
... The bonus, particularly for Daisy was they had a dog sled team and you go for a short ride and meet the dogs for $10. At least this was cheaper than the cruise ship option we have seen. Then we had the opportunity to hold one of the cute 3 week puppies they had as well. All up, a very worthwhile museum to visit in Anchorage.

A moment later we met another woman who said their was a big bull moose hanging around - we decided to turn around. Bill and Charlyne planned a cook out and invited a few good friends. One couple brought their two boys, who happen to be the same ages as Quinn and Cole. Small, small world - they spend ...

After the museum, the shuttle came and whisked us through Anchorage rush hour back to our hotel where Hans gracious picked us up for pizza and wine at their house. His wife Anna and son Hans (4 yo) were delightful hosts and it was great to see a real neighborhood. Their house was a short walk from Turnagain Arm where we could see downtown ...

Last time in 2006, it was a sunny day and the great one was in full view. Next two nites we are at Denali Cabins resort. Going to Denali Cabins dinner theatre ...
