  • Inexpensive hotel in Juneau Alaska

    by

    The Goldbest Hotel in Juneau is situated facing the waterfront in downtown Juneau, room had a king size bed, quite comfortable, various amenities including coffee, iron and ironing board, hairdryer. Some might feel there is rather a limited choice in Juneau, for a few days quite a good hotel.

    Best Downtown Hotel

    by

    The Goldbelt has the best rooms in downtown Juneau. Well appointed, with good heating and air conditioning, their large rooms are so much better than the Baranof. The public areas are rather plain, but clean, with some nice Tlingit work on the walls.

    Rather than eating in their restaurant - walk across the street to the Hanger or Doc Waters. Both restaurants are over the water and with much better food and atmosphere than the Gold Belt. Same goes for the bar - so many more to choose from within walking distance.

    I just had a cousin call that wasn't impressed with her stay here after I recommended it. She called it similar to a low end Holiday Inn. Keep in mind - this ain't Hong Kong or Bangkok. Hotels are much more functional here. The attraction to Alaska is outdoors! (I didn't tell her that!)

    Unique Quality: The view from the water side is great from all floors - the higher the better.

    Directions: Located downtown on Egan, the main sreet of Juneau.

    On the Gastineau Channel Waterfront!!

    by

    An excellent choice for those travelers wanting accommodations close to downtown Juneau but still enjoying waterfront or mountain views, the Goldbelt Hotel Juneau may be the right choice for you. This 105-room hotel offers ALMOSTall creature comforts for the business or casual traveler. The Goldbelt offers room service, cable TV, in-room coffee makers, hair dryers, irons/ironing boards, voice mail & dataports, and a seasonal tour desk. To help you stretch your budget a little, it also offers complimentary parking and airport transportation which is a real plus.

    The Goldbelt's lobby and its Chinook restaurant feature some fine Alaska Native artwork in its decor which I find are exceptionally appealing.

    Unique Quality: You can't beat this hotel for its combination of comfort and exceptional views of the waterfront and mountains, and its easy walking distance to shopping, attractions, restaurants and SOME cruiseship piers.

    Directions: Downtown Juneau waterfront and adjacent to the Convention Center.

Goldbelt Mount Roberts - To Tram or Not to Tram

by starship

For the best panoramic view of Juneau, Douglas Island and the Gastineau Channel, take the Mount Roberts Tramway. The 1,800 foot ascent up the side of Mt. Roberts takes only minutes by aerial tram but is a little expensive. For many people - those in good physical shape, it's the 2-mile climb up the mountain that is the real attraction and if you climb up, there is no charge. (However, be aware this is not exactly a cakewalk. The switchback trail was not in particularly good shape when we were there with fallen rocks and trees, trail washouts and mudslide areas making it necessary to be alert to avoid injuries.)

We paid a pricey total of $71.85 (3 people) to go up Mt. Robert on the tram. I am very proud to say that we did climb down the torturous 2 miles rather than taking the tram again.

Viewing platforms and extensive trails at the top of the mountain offer the opportunity to spot flora, and fauna indigenous to this part of Alaska not to mention see Stephen Jackson's 30 ft. handcarved totem pole. ( A bear had been spotted on the trail the prior week.)

Does all that climbing make you hungry? If so, you will be glad to find the large Timberline Bar & Grill. But don't miss the 120-seat Chilkat Theater where you will see a short 25-minute film entitled "Seeing Daylight". This worthwhile film showcases the culture and heritage of the native "Tlingit" people. Near the observation tower, look for the bald eagle on view.

At the Raven-Eagle gift shop you will be surprised to see that it's part museum and part art gallery and gift shop. Here you can observe native Alaskan/Tlingit artists carve jade and wood to fashion beautiful objects to take home with you. There are also lots of less expensive souvenirs too.

Open daily from early May through late September, but hours and days of operation may very so it's best to call ahead or speak to service personnel at the ticket booth.

New ticket prices for adults have increased in 2006 -- $23.95 adults; children 6 to 12 were $12.50; and children 5 & under are FREE! (This price structure has changed too lowering the age at which children are charged.) The tram is handicapped accessible.

Interesting notes: (1) In 1998, the Mount Roberts Tramway was acquired by "Goldbelt," an Alaskan Native Corporation. The Goldbelt Hotel Juneau is also owned and operated by the same corporation as you might have guessed.
