  1. Our non-smoking room on the 3rd floor looked out on the parking lot. Although I had called the hotel beforehand and told them we would be arriving late and wanted a non-smoking king room, when I got there, I was told there were no non-smoking rooms available. After I complained very vocally, they finally found one for us. The room was large, bed was comfortable, plenty of pillows. Blackout curtains at window. Impt in June when 19 hrs of daylight. Plenty of good quality towels in bathroom. Hotel has two coin op washing machines and dryers, which is convenient if you are traveling for a long time. Lobby was clean but smelled of cigar smoke from bar. Personnel at reception and at concierge desk were not too friendly or helpful. Poor location without a car - 15 min. from downtown. Hotel advertises that it has a shuttle but it does not go at hrs when you might want to go - and sometimes only every two hrs. Also, only has room for 10 people, so you might be out of luck. $15 taxi to/from downtown. There is a public bus that stops across from the hotel. If you get the Millenium, go on line to People Mover, the transit system and get sched. for # 7 bus, which goes to the hotel. It is exact change. Can't remember if you can put $ bills in or if you need change.
  2. Don't bid on Priceline for Anchorage unless you don't care where the hotel is located. The Millennium (which I got) is out near the airport - 15 min from downtown. Hotel itself is ok but terrible location without car. The hotel has a shuttle but it runs 11 am -8 pm tow downtown and comes back from downtown 11:15 am to 10:15 and does not run every hour. I arrived at 10:40 pm by train from Seward and had to take a taxi ($15) to hotel.
