Its location isn't the best for those who want proximity to downtown, but ample freebies include hot breakfast, area shuttles, weekday dinners with beer and wine, and Wi-Fi throughout. There's also a pool/whirlpool, fitness center, convenience store, business center, and laundry facilities on-site. Its 122 suites are clean and offer fully equipped kitchens, and some add sleepers sofas. Travelers looking for a stay that's closer to the heart of the city can consider Anchorage Grand Hotel.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

A friendly and cozy hotel with rustic Alaskan decor 

A moose head and two large stuffed bears mounted in standing positions greet arriving guests at this quiet, cozy, and friendly hotel. Comfy sofas are set in front of a two-sided gas fireplace that’s framed by natural stone. It separates the registration area from the dining section, which has plenty of seating including a long communal table with high-back chairs. The area is quite busy in the morning, as well as on weekday nights when guests gather to enjoy the free dinner and drinks provided by the hotel. An outdoor patio facing a large grassy area provides a nice alternative for dining in warm weather. Expect to see a mix of business travelers, families, and other tourists who like having the extra space and at-home conveniences that the property offers.

Location

In Midtown, approximately 10 minutes from downtown and the airport

The Homewood Suites sits on a quiet street must off busy C Street, lined with hotels, restaurants, and other businesses. It's a 10-minute drive from downtown, so the location isn't ideal for tourists looking to be in the heart of the city. Golden Corral Steakhouse is only a one-minute walk, and two other Hilton properties are nearby, including a Hilton Garden Inn that has a restaurant and bar. Several other restaurants are within walking distance or a very short drive. Ted Steven International Airport approximately 10 minutes away by car or hotel shuttle, and train station is a 13-minute drive.

Rooms

Clean and spacious suites, with fully equipped kitchens and free Wi-Fi

The hotel's spacious, contemporary suites are done in warm earth tones including rust and gold, and they have a cozy, understated look. Sage accent walls behind beds pair well with the rest of the color palette, and white bedding contrasts nicely with dark amber wood furniture. 

All units come with modern kitchenettes that have granite countertops, full fridges, cooktops, wet bars, microwaves, coffeemakers, dishwashers, and cooking utensils. There are also spacious desks with office chairs, armchairs, and dining tables and chairs; larger units add sleeper sofas. Flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi are standard amenities, but there are no safes. One-Bedroom and Two-Bedroom (two-bath) Suites are also available. 

Bathrooms have a similar look, and they contain shower/tub combos, hairdryers, and Neutrogena toiletries; wide vanities are en-suite. Guest rooms are generally quiet, and large windows bring in ample natural light, but most views are unremarkable. Some suites overlook a wooded area, however. Travelers should be aware that the hotel allows smoking in some guest rooms. 

Features

Free hot breakfast and weekday dinners, pool and fitness center, plus free Wi-Fi 

This Homewood Suites offers a slew of amenities to cater to its diverse clientele, and freebies are plentiful. There's a free breakfast buffet with eggs, bacon, potatoes, and waffles, plus cold items such as cereal, fruit, and yogurt. Weeknight dinners are also free, with a menu that changes daily but always includes a salad, entree, and drink tickets for beer or wine. Other freebies include an area shuttle that runs to the airport 24/7, as well as to downtown and the train station, on-site parking, and Wi-Fi throughout. 

For wellness, there's an indoor pool and large whirlpool housed in a space that's bright and gets natural light. The fitness center has several modern Precor cardio machines as well as free weights, and there's also an outdoor basketball court on-site. 

Two computers and printers can be found in a 24-hour business center, and the hotel has a meeting room that can host up to 80 people. Valet dry cleaning and laundry is available, and there's also a guest laundry room on-site and a 24-hour minimart that sells sundries, snacks, soft drinks, and frozen entrees.
