Historical Traveler Reviews Homewood Suites by Hilton Anchorage
Großartiges Hotel in Anchorage!
Wir waren zwischen dem 19. und 23. August 2005 zweimal in den Homewood Suites. Die Zimmer waren ruhig und sehr gepflegt, das Essen war reichlich, warm und lecker, das Fitness-Center war gut ausgestattet und gepflegt, die Gänge waren sehr ruhig und die Leute waren wunderbar. Einzigen Nachteile waren, dass die Betten für meinen Geschmack sehr hart waren und dass es unmöglich war, die Ausziehcouch auszuziehen und die Tür zum Schlafzimmer zu schliessen ohne die Möbel verstellen zu müssen. Alles in allem ein großartiger Aufenthalt und ich würde hier auf jeden Fall wieder unterkommen wenn ich noch einmal nach Anchorage komme.
Loved this place
The hotel is beautiful inside and out. Everything is new. Our room was spotelss and very comfortable. The property is also located in area very convient to stores and restaurants. There was a bit of a problem with our reservation, but we ended up getting an extreme amount of money taken off of our bill due to the mix up. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel.
Great place to stay in Anchorage!
We stayed at the Homewood Suites two times between August 19 and 23, 2005.
The rooms were quiet and well maintained, the food was plentiful, warm, and tasty, the fitness center was well-equipped and maintained, the halls very quiet, and the people wonderful.
The only negatives were that the beds were hard (for my taste) and using the pull out sofa and closing the bedroom door were impossible without manipulating the furniture.
All things considered, it was a great stay and I would definitely stay here again if I returned to Anchorage.
Best Place to stay in Anchorage
Stayed at the Anchorage Homewood Suites on October 17th and 18th. I've stayed in numerous hotels, motels in Anchorage, and I can honestly say that Homewood Suites is the best value. We found the property to be clean, well maintained and well managed. The rooms are laid out nice (we had the 1 bedroom suite)and are quiet. The pool and jaccuzzi are nice and the exercize room has top quality equipment. There are three treadmills, a bicycle and an eliptical as well as a weight machine. The breakfast (included in the price of the room) was the best free breakfast we have had (make your own waffles, omlets, eggs, sausage, cereal, fruit etc.) Overall we were extremely satisfied with our stay. Much better than the local competition. Winter rates are $100 or so. Well worth the money.
This was a fantastic hotel! We stayed only for one night prior to going back home from a cruise/land vacation to Alaska. The hotel was brand new. Room was clean with nice carpeting, kitchen, granite countertops and cherry wood furniture and floors. They had great "black out drapes" which is important for sleeping during the summer months. Breakfast in the morning was pretty extensive with eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, toast, cereals, juices,etc... worth at least $10-15 per person. Another advantage of this hotel was that they have courtesy shuttle that will pick up/deliver to the airport and train station. I would definitely stay here again!
Homewood Suites is the best!
I have been coming to Anchorage for over 12 years and this is the first time I have ever stayed at Homewood Suites and it is the BEST hotel I've ever been in!! Our 2 bedroom suite was great and the amenities were nice, but the best aspect is that the staff treated my family like we were the most important guests in the hotel! I don't know what the rates will be like in the winter, but they were better than a lot of the hotels we called for this summer stay!!!
Most Wonderful Hotel Worth the Extra Dime
This hotel was the best hotel I have ever stayed at. My trip inclulded a hotel disaster and was turned around by the staff of this hotel after they rescued me from my nightmare in Anchorage! The service I received when I was picked up by their shuttle service was courtious and very helpful. The guest service staff were very helpful and wonderful. Then I got to my room - this was absolutly wonderful. The room had a kitchen, living room area & King Bedroom. If I wasn't leaving Alaska the next day, I could have stayed another night for sure!! The average price I had heard was around $175 but due to my dilema I was given a room plus taxes for $139. I would definately stay at this hotel again in any neighborhood I traveled too.
Trying to be a Residence Inn
We stayed the weekend at the hotel. Dec. 17-19, 2004
We are regular guests of the Residence Inn - Anchorage and are used to the quiet spacious rooms and rustic feel.
This hotel is new and fairly nice. It is missing some of the attributes I would expect from a Hilton product. My review:
1) The rooms are a bit cramped. We stayed in a suite (Not a 1 bedroom) The room had a couch, chair, coffee table, desk, and small kitchenette squeezed into a mid-sized hotel room. I think they could have left a bit out to make the rooms feel more spacious.
2) Saturday morning maids knocked on the door at 8:00am. The room walls are so poorly insulated that we heard everything going on in the hallway. The maids talking, the people entering the room across the hall, everything!! Residence Inn staggers the room doors so they aren't across from each other which really would help at this hotel.
3) Hallways are very narrow. Water running, showers, and toilet operation of floor above made a great deal of noise in our room. Everytime someone flushed a toilet in the room above us you could hear it in the room.
4) Non-Existant parking
5) Very fast Internet
6) Pretty Inexpensive ($79.00 winter- I made reservations online for the rate and fortunately noted that the service agent at the hotel was going to charge me $89.00)
7) Convenient Location- East side borders a treed area.
Overall the hotel is nice. No more, no less. It seemed like a cheap knock-off of Residence Inn.
Don't get me wrong, Residence Inn isn't perfect either, but my wife and I kept remarking to ourselves how similar they were to each other.
Feels like home!
I have stayed at the Homewood Suites on numerous occassions, and apart from the location it's my favourite place in Anchorage to stay.
The rooms are immaculate - and very practical. Wireless internet in every room. Daily newspaper delivered free of charge each morning. Loads of soaps, shampoos, and other freebies which make you feel you are getting your moneys worth.
The bathroom is nice and big, and the kitchen houses a nice full-sized fridge. Basic kitchen facilities are in-room also (stove, all pots and pans, dishwasher) - though the kitchen can only fit one person at a time as it is quite cramped.
The Homewood Suites has only been opened for a very short time, and everything has that nice new clean feel to it. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous, and although spacious, clean and tidy it has an authentic rustic Alaskan theme - with stag horns and moose antlers displayed.
In the dining area there is a fireplace, and lovely decor. Continental breakfasts are served each morning - and include all the basics (cereal, toast, bagels, muffins, fruit, juice, coffee tea) plus a few little extras (eggs, bacon, sausages, yoghurt, oatmeal). Everything is very clean, tidy and well presented!
As a bonus, each weeknight the Homewood Suites puts on a free dinner! I have only had the dinner on one occassion, lasagna night. It was fantastic! Dinner came with bread and salad, and complimentary beer or wine. This was a great perk - and saved us loads of money on eating out!
The Homewood Suites is just a 2 minute drive from Century Cinemas, and is close to Lone Star, TGIF, Appleby's and Sea Galley. There are not really any views from any of the rooms - but who needs a view from your room when you spend most of your time out and about outside of the room anyway!
The staff are friendly, helpful, and the housekeepers were a delight! A lovely, friendly, clean, tidy place I highly highly highly recommend. Much better than the Marriot places - this place really does feel homely despite the luxurious surroundings.
I stayed at this hotel on three separate occasions in June/July 2004. Although it has not been open long, everything was very satisfactory, nicely furnished rooms, very good complimentary breakfast, nice business center with three computers and free internet, good shuttle service to airport and downtown and very friendly staff.

... leave two tightly packed cases with the hotel while we fly off on adventure no.2.
We may have arrived here talking of whales and bears, but the pre-occupation of the locals and the wildlife here is FISH. Wherever you are up this coast, there is no escaping the importance of salmon, herring, halibut and a few other species to the well being of man and animal here. And so we realised our trip centred on a view into the fishing techniques of cetaceans, carnivores and primates.
... less than $2.00 per night. Not bad eh?) We camped two nights there and got to see the fish wheels in action on the river, plus we took Doc on a beautiful ride to McCarthy on the old mining railway bed.
McCarthy is the old town outside of the Kennecott Copper Mine and Mill town that thrived from 1913 to 1938 when the mine closed. The history of the copper mines and the mill there ...
... above us, there was no wind, something knocked it over. "John I've watched enough nature TV, I'm sure a bear caused that while he was looking for bugs!" He made me continue, after another 30 minutes I pleaded with him, it just doesn't feel safe, we lost cell coverage an hour ago, no one else was parked at the trailhead, we are out here on our own!" He begrudgingly turned around and we ended our first Alaskan Hiking ...
... and propels the machine forward. Reduce the throttle and it brings you to a controlled halt -- no slipping or sliding. Bog your machine and you simply hop off, rev the throttle, let go and the machine shoots forward a few metres and pops back up on top of even the deepest snow pack -- magic. Having mastered these details I set out to break the land speed record. Choosing a long straight run (out of sight of my travel companions) I hit the throttle. I swear I hit 45 mph ...
... Thank goodness for google maps and we were next to Costco in twenty minutes. We bought snacks and produce that can last without refrigeration for few days such as pastries, fruit, granola bars. We also got cheese plate and some wine.
According to my itinerary, there were 200 + miles to our cabins in Denali park and I thought we are taking 3-4 hours top. Little did I know, it would take us double that time to get to Denali.
