    Attentive service, clean & quiet!

    by

    We stayed for a week at Hilton. The rooms are very quiet, even though we were just outside the elevator. I would definitely stay here again.
    The only disappointment (as with many downtown hotels in most locales) is that the hotels continue to charge for WiFi.

    We had some television problems, and the reception and maintenance people were very responsive.
    Very clean, very quiet hotel!

    Nice business center if you're doing work while traveling.

    Unique Quality: Great view of the water, if you request a room in the tower.
    Restaurant was OK.
    Within walking distance of most downtown activities (Egan Center, Anchorage Museum, Park, etc.)
    A number of restaurants and shops nearby, inlcuding a mall.

    Directions: Downtown, easy to get to from Airport.

    Point blank, not worth it for the price($200+ per night). The location is great right in downtown and the staff tries hard. My main issue is the smell in my room. It was like a combination of cigarette smoke and feet. The hotel was fully booked so no chance for a room change. Although the bathroom was newly rennovated, the shower would never fully get hot and would sometimes turn cold. The elevators were so slow I often just took the stairs. Beware in the summers, because I believe there are a few cruise lines that use the Hilton for lodging their guests, which can make the lobby and elevators very crowded. The breakfast buffet was good, but not worth $18.50. My recommendation would be to venture out at one of the cafes in the neighboring blocks(try Snow City Cafe).

    $16 a day for valet parking, $18.50 for breakfast buffet, $8.95 for internet access a day

    Unique Quality: Pros : Location, newly rennovatged bathroom, friendly staff
    Cons: Slow elevators, inconsistent tempature of shower, strange smell in the room.

  • Not bad but not really worth the money

    by

    I had to book early for a conference in te Egan Center and knew nothing about where to stay in Anchorage. No shuttle, the taxi takes 10 minutes and 20$ plus tip. In the room it surprised me that there was no wireless which I got used to from other hotels. Instead a cable which usually is not bad for reliable connections. After using some neighbour's wireless for a day I finally decided to subscribe to the comparably expensive LAN but this was even worse - it kept slowing down and collapsing frequently. With a lot of work to do that required internet access and nothing really exciting me about this place, I decided to leave early and spent the rest of my stay in another hotel next door (at the Historic Anchorage Hotel).

    The Hilton staff is friendly, the rooms are nice and clean, the downtown location is fine, the view from the top is wonderful but that's about it - they charge a huge amount of money and if you're travelling on business and stay more than just one or two nights you do get more for that money and might feel more comfortable elsewhere.

    Unique Quality: A marvellous view from the terrace (which seems to be not open for the public all the time) and right next to the Egan Convention Center downtown.

    An OK Hotel

    by

    Anchorage was no more than a pit stop on a land tour that was part of a cruisetour we took with Holland America (August 2005). The Hilton is a nice downtown hotel. Because it is in the heart of downtown, it is convenient to many restaurants. While I had no issues with the hotel, I didn't see anything special about it either. I thought the room was rather small but, we arrived late one evening and left early the following morning, so the room served its purpose. I think the hotel would be most appropriate for an individual travelling on business.

    Largest Hotel in Anchorage

    by

    I've stayed at the Hilton many times over the past 15 years, mostly attending conferences and meetings right in the hotel. It's a nice enough place with good sized rooms and a decent coffee shop. Good gym and a small pool. The view from the restaurant up top is stunning.
    They continue to make improvements - last year they remodeled all the rooms nicely. The year before, the lobby area got a major face lift.

    Perhaps the best location of the downtown hotels it is in easy walking distance of good restaurants and shopping. Or you can grab a fishing pole and take a short walk down the hill to Ship Creek for some King Salmon. Some of my friends from the bush prefer it to the Captain Cook because it is lighter inside - something welcome during those long dark winters up north.

    As in all Anchorage hotels, the price goes up dramatically in the high season of summer (May - Sep).

    They tried having a shuttle service from the airport a few years ago but no longer offer that. I think the cabs were boycotting them or something.

    I only give it a 3 because it really is just a run of the mill chain hotel.

    This hotel is nothing out of the ordinary, and certainly not worth the almost $200 per night rate, but Anchorage is an expensive city. The hotel is in downtown and near Cook inlet. The Top of the World Lounge on top of the hotel is pretty nice. But, other than that, there's nothing remarkable about this place.

    Room with many views

    by

    The Anchorage Hilton has great views of the city and inlet with 3 dining choices within. Enjoy a meal in one the Hilton’s and three restaurants, the Top of the World Restaurant, the Hooper Bay Cafe and the Bruins Bar. If you are looking for an uber romantic evening, visit the Top of the World Restaurant!

    February 2003 -- We were not happy here!

    by

    You are booking your trip and you don't want surprises. Go with the name brand, right? Our stay at the Hilton was a big letdown after the Captain Cook. They did not give us a discount for Hilton Club, so a room was the same price as a suite at the Cook, no turndown service, no robes, and a small room.

    Unique Quality: The "Business Center" is a Kinko's and you have to pay for services. After paying top dollar, this was unacceptable. For a more enjoyable stay on the same street, try the Anchorage Hotel, less expensive, and much, much more fun. Not to mention that you will be awakened by a train whistle!

    Photo is from the lobby, White and Brown Bears, worth a look, but stay elsewhere.
