Nice place to stay A review of Anchorage Grand Hotel
As part of our train package, we only had the opportunity to stay one night at the Grand Hotel. The location, right across from the train depot, makes this place ideal for those traveling tourists. From the outside it looked scary but I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my room door.
This hotel is in a great location. Not only is it across from the depot, it is also right next to where the Saturday/Sunday market is located. Also within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Our room was quite large with a kitchen area. There were many closets and it was very clean.
They don't have shuttle service so you'll have to rely on taxis or your own car. They don't have a continental breakfast but will give you a coupon ticket for one at a nearby coffee shop. We didn't get the chance to use it since our train left early in the morning again. The room was a bit warm but we found a box fan in one of the closets so that helped.
There may be other places to stay in Anchorage but I was happy the Alaskan Railroad placed us in the Grand. I may not have chosen to stay here and I'm glad I did.
The people at the front desk were friendly.
