Up early again so we can get off the boat at 7:40am. Last time in the Katy Perry shower. No more hot 'n cold. Whooo hoooo! That's pretty damn exciting! Looking forward to the next leg, Julia especially is really looking forward to having a bed she doesn't need a ladder to get into!

okay so it's a few days since updating and lots has happened but will try a quick update. We left Denali after an amazing stay and the weather not so great. The drive back to Anchorage was not too long and we stopped at Martin Busers who is a musher who has won the Iditirod on 4 occasions. We had a great visit as he did a demonstration, we met his …
Just a quick update: When we were in the park yesterday the rangers were putting up signs to tell hikers not to get of the bus. When our tour guide asked what was going on, they wouldn't tell us. Today we found out that a hiker had been mauled to death by a grizzly. On the tour they were bragging about having no fatalities. That is now history. Luckily we never saw a thing.
Here are a few points about Anchorage. It has a population of 300,000 people and witnessed the worst ever earthquake which was 9.5 on the richter scale. Apparently the earthquake did minimal damage, but the following tsunami wiped out most of the city. The photo's are horrifying. Anchorage is the starting point of the Iditerod, which is the famous …
Our last night in Las Vegas was great. KA was sensational and we ended up drinking the last drinks we'd bought in our room until 2:00am. The trip to Alaska was interesting, on arrival at the check in we found that we were all seated separately and there was an additional charge of $20/suitcase. Both Nevis & I were seated between single travellers, …

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Anchorage Hotel
Great hotel choice for pre or post cruisers. Beds comfortable, rooms clean, staff pleasant. Got good deal on Hotwire. Free shuttle within downtown area. Would stay here again.
We spent our first and last 2 nights in Alaska here. It was great. We got wonderful prices on Hotwire and Pricline....When we returned for the last 2 nights we asked for a room with a view and on a higher floor...no problem. Had a great view of the mountains from our room. The rooms were nice..sheets were very good and beds had been upgraded.
What a wonderful hotel!!
we stayed at the sheraton for our first trip to alaska. What a fantastic choice. The staff is incredibly friendly. The bellmen couldn't help us enough, the housekeepers were even smiling. How often do you see that?
From making our reservation to the check out process, everything was perfect. I'd recommend the sheraton anchorage to anyone.
Needs a renovation
No real problems per se, but the room was very dated, although clean. The bed had been updated to Sheraton's Sweet Sleeper, and was comfortable. The rest of the room looks like it has not been updated since the late 1980s. Supposedly, they are in the middle of a renovation, but neither my room nor the public areas reflect this.
Go for Priceline $ and this is a Great Hotel
This was the traditional big Sheraton - a shame to stay at when there are so many unique B&Bs and boutiques in Anchorage. But for the price, it's great.
I checked biddingfortravel and found rooms were being accepted for $45 Priceline bids. I got a first night and last night of our trip here. Room service was great. Fast and good food for the price. Rooms were clean and sound proof. Great views of the city and Tracy Arm from the higher floors. Centrally located downtown with free parking. Not a thing wrong with the hotel - except maybe the morning desk staff. The night staff is fantastic - especially the weekend night auditor.
So, for the price - it's great. If you have the money - go with something 'more alaskan'.
My wife and I loved the Sheraton and it's location and it's staff is exceptional. We went halibut fishing out of Homer and my wife caught a 169 and a 90 lb halibut. I caught a 60 lb, isn't that always the way it is? She is a determined fisherperson and never asked for help. The drive back was beautiful and it was still daylight when we went to bed. The next thing that I knew I was looking at an EMT who was talking to me but I could not respond. I was having the most severe insulin reaction I have ever had, with a blood sugar of 25! The staff had called the EMT's at my wife's request. They stayed nearby, accompanied us to the hospital and picked us up at the hospital and brought us back. They convinced us to come back to the Sheraton. The next day we drove to Denali.
Not bad for $50
This hotel is very old. The carpeting, the furniture looks like its from the 70's. The bed however is new. We got this from priceline and would do it again. It served its purpose. The staff was not very knowledgable about the area- which is suprising and it is directly in downtown Anchorage and not close to anything newer. But, I would recommend if you can get off priceline.
What you would expect at Sheraton
Pricelined it for $50 on a sat night in april. good deal. Got a clean king room with the new bed they are promoting. Room was clean and comfortable as you would expect at Sheraton. Bed was nice and view over harbor was fine. No great surprises, no great disasters.
Enjoyed the Sheraton
This wasn't the nicest place we've ever stayed, but it would certainly qualify as average. It was roomier than many hotel rooms. It looks just like the picture available on this website, so the decorating makes it kind of dark. We had a great view of the mountains, which are beautiful in the middle of winter. Bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet even though we were right next to the elevator. We're staying there again this weekend. Only wish they had a pool!
The lobby seems very european with huge, antique-type furniture.
My husband and I planned the last two nights of our honeymoon in Anchorage, after our cruise.Almost immediately upon arrival to the Sherton Anchorage, we began making phone calls to see about another hotel in Anchorage or to see about leaving Anchorage early.The rooms were large, however, they were OLD, dark and very poorly decorated. There was simply nothing inviting about them at all! The view from the room was undesirable, at best, and this put a major damper on our last two nights of our honeymoon.This hotel needs MAJOR updating.Also, we came and went from our room several times throughout the day. The room next to ours ordered room service for breakfast and eight hours later the tray was still sitting in front of the door. You could smell it down the hallway and it was gross.Honestly, I would go out of my way to tell people not to stay there if visiting Anchorage.
