Travel Blogs from Anchorage
Well, sorry for neglecting the blog for so long but it's hard to keep up when you’re so busy soaking up the wilderness and beauty that is Alaska. We’ve been out there for about a week now without much connection to modern technology sooo …to pick up where we left off, we followed the alcan into the Alaskan interior to Tok, a …

Next checked out the local salmon fishing stream right in the middle of town - where the seagulls were catching a lot more salmon than the fishermen were! Also muddy and slimy with lots of spawn depleted dead fish on the banks. A real tourist draw card. Cough cough.

Ro enjoyed a beer sampler stick and the rest of us enjoyed a refreshing local cider whilst sitting in the sun. After king crab nuggets, crab cake eggs benedict, alaskian cod fish n chips and a traditional cheeseburger, we were ready to explore anchorage. We all agreed that we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Anchorage Midtown
Nice Pre-Cruise Stay
We stayed at the SpringHill Suites Anchorage just after a long flight to Anchorage and the day before our cruise. We found it to be comfortable, convenient, and well priced. Room was clean and spacious. Staff was very friendly. No noise! Breakfast was excellent - a step above normal continental breakfasts since it had hot eggs, meat, etc. There was a bus stop right outside the lobby, which we used to get to downtown for some sightseeing before returning to the hotel to meet our shuttle to Whittier. We took a cab back from downtown and it was $10 with tip. There's also an Outback right across the street if you (like us) drag in too tired to make a long trip for dinner.
Anyway, we highly recommend this hotel if you're arranging your pre- or post- cruise trip yourself.
We stayed at Springhill Suites after finishing our Alaska Cruise on Princess. Although at first we didn't realize it was a little out of the main part of the town, we became very pleased with it where it was situated. We were close to a good Steak Restaurant & Walmart where we could pick up any items we needed. The hotel itself was excellent, rooms very nice with coffee maker, microwave etc. The staff was friendly & helpful, the breakfast was wonderful. We were able to catch the bus right out the door and for $2.00 we could ride it all over the place for two days. It was actually not far by bus to the main part where we toured around & then we enjoyed the longer ride home via a scenic tour of the City which we loved. The day we left the taxi van which is the best one of get, the first taxi we took was terrible, driver horrid, taxi van to airport was very reasonable and airport which was lovely was quite close. This is the third time we have stayed at Springhill Suites & find them the best bargain possible. The only problem we had was that we were billed twice for the same night & after two calls to them & one letter to the Customer Service, the amount was refunded. Staff was extemely pleasant through this mistake. Many thanks.
Very pleasant and clean upscale facility. We stayed in a room with two full-sized beds and a couch that opened up. They put in a full size rollaway and by careful rearranging of the furniture we fit in the fourth bed (we had two adults and three college-age children). Breakfast was very nice as well. It is only a few miles/km from the airport, and one of our party arrived late, about 3:00 AM. The free hotel shuttle met her promptly and brought her to the motel, even in the middle of the "night."
Stayed at the Springhill Suites early November 2005 an excellent choice guided by reading the reviews on this site. Room was nicely furnished and had everything that I required. The hotel serves a continental breakfast and not a full breakfast (as described by the Marriott representative). There is lots happening in Mid Town Anchorage but having a car does help especially when it was cold. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel and the airport-hotel shuttle saved me a taxi cab fare. Lastly, Anchorage is a typical American city, I was expecting something different but overall staying here made my stay a good one.
Nice reasonable accomodations
I stayed at this hotel on August 12th and again on August 20, 2005. It is in a nice safe location (I saw no concrete buildings anywhere near) right across the street from an Outback restauraunt. A Wal-Mart Super Center is also within walking distance(it has a McDonalds inside) as well as a Pizza Hut and Bar-B-Que. A cab ride to downtown will cost about $10.00 with tip. A movie complex is also located behind the hotel.
The continental breakfast was better than most.
The staff was friendly and courteous and responsive to any concerns. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Large rooms, nice pool/jacuzzi
We've enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Their rooms are large and comfortable
(two queen beds and a pull-out couch). The place is clean and well maintained.
Breakfast is included in the price of the room which is a bargain (we got a rate of $104 with AAA card). We also enjoyed their pool and jacuzzi, it was nice
and relaxing before our flight home.
I live in Anchorage, and in the winter of course, its cold. Since we don't have a swimming pool in the back yard, more and more families are choosing to get away for a night or two and enjoy the pool, hot tub and other amenities that the hotels in the city have to offer. Therefore, our family has stayed in several and toured many other hotels in Anchorage. My daughter recently stayed at this hotel with a group from her church who were having a girls Sunday school party and chose the
I stayed at the Springhill Suites last night for the very first time, and was impressed with the courteous and friendly staff on duty.
Stayed here with friends in early July and was very happy with our choice. Nice large clean rooms, with mini-kitchenette. Air -conditioning was great to have because the weather was very hot. We just came off a cruise , and did not want to eat out and the front desk was nice enough to let us use the breakfast room to set up some take out food we got. They also had free internet. They served a very large breakfast in the morning that saved us alot of time & money. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!!
Yey or Nay on Springhill Suites? -- Yey!
I decided to spend the night at a hotel with 5 of my friends. My friend previously spent the night at Springhill Suites and recommended it with me. It was great! There was an indoor pool, small jaccuzi, spaceful rooms, and FRIENDLY staff! It was so relaxing. Whenever you had questions or comments, the staff was there for you! The breakfast was delicious. It was very convenient to be close by Century 12 Theatres and First Bank of Alaska. Every cent paid at this hotel was worth it! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND SPRINGHILL SUITES!
