Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by patna Not on par with other Holiday Inn Express properties
I've stayed at many Holiday Inn Express hotels, and this was by far my worst experience.
1) Allotted Room in the basement, next to the hotel office with constant chatter and noise among employees.
2) Fitness center has no ventilation or air conditioning. Was suffocating to use.
3. Pool was out of service.
4. Fruit options at breakfast very limited in quantity and variety.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony50 Love the sun deck
I've stayed here before and they continue to improve. They have a new deck area outside with tables & chairs and it was great to be able to enjoy the sunny weather. I also want to point out the excellent housekeeping staff. Dusan was one of the housekeepers during this stay and his attention to detail and excellent customer service contributed to a wonder stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NumeroUnoGeo Good place to crash after a long flight, long hike
Good location, good breakfast (one could load up on the standard fair that they have and skip lunch to go cheap, we did). Comfortable rooms.
Airport shuttle service was timely and complimentary. Probably the best pickup service I've encountered.
Hotel was a bit expensive, but, it is Anchorage. Considering they saved me paying for a cab two ways (airport and back) and eight (4x breakfast and 4x lunch) meals, It was probably a fair trade. Works for me.
My only complaint: I wasn't recognized as a platinum member. At HI Express in general, I feel as though not being recognized as a platinum member is becoming more common. It has happened at 3/3 HI Express's that I've stayed since April.

The staff was great providing recommendations for dining and transportation. They also did a great job getting us a 1/2 day room and rate following our adventure in Kenai with a tour company. It meant a great deal to my group to have a place to clean up from white water rafting,and to relax before getting on airplanes for 12 hours.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hpyuann Not very good...
I booked for five people from the IHG system, and I supposed they would give us a room for five people. But they didn't, even there was no additional bed that could be added. That's awful. Don't recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nh03051 Always glad to check into a Holiday Inn Express
The free shuttle service from the airport was great especially at 1:30 in the morning. It's always good to check in at a Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast was plentiful and a good variety of items

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Leslie11 Very disappointing from previous stay
Called ahead and spoke with staff about late check-in and accommodation for packaged frozen fish being brought back to hotel.
Everything was ok.
When arrived, room requested in advance was not available, was not offered or provided with usual Elite member service. Was told that we needed to go to another hotel (which was nicer and happened to have a better room rate) to have our fish stored over night.
There appeared to be poor communication between the day and evening staff at the front desk.
The stay a week earlier was much more pleasant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony50 Super Renovations
This hotel has always been in good shape but they have rennovated the rooms again. New furniture, modern wall accents, even new granite & sinks in the bath. It definitely looks like they paid extra for a designer. Great job!
Although the rooms have been improved I keep coming back here because of the wonderful staff. The front desk was helpful in allowing me an early arrival after my plane arrived early. The housekeepers & breakfast personnel keep everything immaculate. Thanks!

These hotels are so clean, neat and in good repair. The people are very helpful and I feel I can ask for anything and they are willing to work with me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jax54 Love the renovations
The rooms have been renovated & have new furnishings. I especially like the many electrical outlets. This has always been a problem at all hotels, now this HIE has added outlets and all the new lamps also have heavy duty outlets in their base. I used the shuttle this time since it was just a overnight stay. Both drivers were friendly & knowledgable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WD999 Overall Experience
I have been staying at this property for over a decade. This property has never been in this poor condition in over 10 years. The staff is unable to post invoices or help a Platinum customer. I have been very disappointed in my last stay, each time I stay at this property the staff degrades. I have stayed at 2 different times this year alone. The bathrooms are in poor conditions the amenities are poor. The only thing that was a positive was the excellent job the person in the breakfast location, she was excellent in performance and personal attention to customers.

We used this hotel for our out going flight and our return trip before going home. We left at 4 AM and the staff was excellent and very ready to put us in an easy to leave room without disturbing other guests. We arrived at 2 AM on our return and the room was once again an easy to get to room and ready for us. We were able to get a good nights sleep that morning also. The service of the front desk was awesome. They even offer us snacks when we checked in so late at night. Thank you Holiday Inn Express. The location of this Holiday Inn is awesome for air travel and there is a Village Inn and a Wendy's within walking distance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BOMBSQD1 Great Room and Super Great Breakfast
I stayed at this hotel on my way out to Adak, Alaska. While it was a brief stay, it was very comfortable and my room was very nice. The hotel was very clean, the staff very friendly and professional, and the breakfast was hearty, healthy, and delicious. I would like to make a special shout out to Jovie and her co-workers in the breakfast room for preparing the most delicious breakfast ever! She is very friendly, always has a smile on her face, and she looks like she enjoys her job. Thank you Jovie for helping to make my stay one to remember!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FrankyJ Lazy/inefficient staff
The housekeeping was particularly lazy. I stayed almost 3 weeks and after the first couple days they stopped cleaning. My housekeeper most of the time was "Lika". She didn't even come in some days. I had to ask the front desk for soap and towels. The breakfast room kept running out of fruit, oatmeal, and coffee. How do you run out of coffee?? A few times the garbage was overflowing too.
However, the room was spacious. The pool and hot tub were maintained and a great place to relax after skiing. The stationary bike was broke in the fitness area but the treadmill working fine. Aesthetically, the hotel was beautiful. I loved the taxidermized animals and the fireplace in the reception area. From someone from the lower 48 it was very Alaska. Also was a good deal for the price especially considering the good locale.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ricky2013 Nice, but airport shuttle is lousy.
Nice, clean, comfortable, close-by place to stay for a night. However the airport shuttle experience leaves a lot to be desired. On pick-up it can take up to 20 minutes for the shuttle to arrive. When it's 10 degrees and windy that is a long time to be standing outside waiting. And if you're not out there when they pass by, forget about it. You can just start the wait over. Then when you do get picked up it is a 50/50 shot on whether you go straight to your hotel or first to the Microtel which shares the van with HIE. And from the Microtel they always take the long way around to HIE. I'll never understand that. Then in the morning they have a set schedule for shuttles to the airport. Odd times too. And sometimes their set times just don't work out right so you end up getting to the airport wayyyy early. For this reason, the shuttle alone, I just can't stay there anymore. There are too many other choices in the same area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BOMBSQD1 What a Great Place to Stay While in Anchorage!
Excellent hotel pick-up service from the Airport with Ben the driver, a local guy with loads of information and a super great attitude! Check-in was super fast with friendly staff, a great room with a view, and the breakfast the next morning was second to none. While enroute to Adak Island, this was the perfect rest stop before the final journey. Great job Holiday Inn Express! I'll be back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beva good room
liked the room. parking seems a little limited, but we got in late and did find a place to park. Hoping to get the same room next time. We requested and fan and they did get one for us. Loved the water pressure in the shower. Breakfast didn't look that appealing to my husband, but he had his heart set on Gwennie's down the street.
