Anchorage - what is the best hotel for me

Hotel industry in Anchorage from 1991 till today.

During last decade the number of newly build hotels increases. The market grow on this sector is result of the civilization development, claims dr Ryker Gallegos from Institute for New Economic Thinking

Good hotel in Anchorage 

The economic development is increasing in many areas of the region. And this is mainly due to the economic and social boom of the last decade. It's a very healthy and healthy economy. And this is reflected in the number of new hotels built.

According to Gallegos, most of the major cities in the Russian Far East like Vladivostok, Yekaterinburg, Ust-Yakutia, Khabarovsk and Ussuriya are getting the latest luxury hotels, which is why hotel industry is increasing fast in these locations.

In the past two decades, several hotel chains like Krasnoshilsk and Novosibirsk in Siberia added new luxury hotel to the existing buildings in order to attract tourists.

But they did not succeed in attracting visitors and the prices were high. The Russian Tourism Authority also stated that many hotel guests left for other destinations on the way, because of the high price of food and beverages.

One thing that made Russia's hotel industry in particular special is that, thanks to the fact that its hotels are located near major transportation routes, many of the guests from many parts of the world visit Russia, and not just Russia.

According to Gallegos, one of the biggest reasons for the growing number of new-build luxury hotels in the Russian Far East lies in the fact that, because the economic boom in the last decade is in the past decade, there is a significant amount of construction work and construction of hotels.

He said that in 2008, the number of hotels was about 3,000, and last year it reached 10,000 and will continue to rise. He said that during this last boom of the economy, there are new hotel projects going on all over the region.

But in most cities the number of new hotels is not that large as there is still a lot of construction work, and it's a little later in the construction process. "

Unusual Anchorage hotel stories straight from movies

Some hotel stories are hard to believe are true. This particular happened in Anchorage near 501 K Street.

When I was standing at the hotel reception and checking in the pizza delivery man threw boxes at the hotel receptionist who didn't want to do it anymore and gave me a pizza. I was very surprised.

The receptionist said "Don't worry about it!" Also when a friend and I had stayed at the hotel about 5 years previously and I asked who checked us in that night the receptionist said "Do you want to check in or are you just passing through?"

We checked in and they gave us a bottle of water for the flight but it tasted like it had been sitting on the counter for a few days. The bed was good size and the room had an attached bathroom.

I found the room very clean and the breakfast included was delicious. The room had a fridge and microwave but no coffee maker though. The best part was the view. We checked out after breakfast to see the view.

It was quite impressive. At breakfast they asked if you had any special requests and I asked where the coffeemaker was in the room. The receptionist said "We'll get you a coffee machine next time you stop here " The view is great, I found an overlook not to far from downtown.

I saw the river, mountains, mountains and mountains. I stayed at the hotel a few times. The first time the mattress on the queen was way softer than the later ones, then it got harder, then they got softer, etc. That was great. The first room was small, with a sofa that wouldn't slide out, but we'd pull it out, then slide the sofa in and it worked like a treat.

The walls were made of thin bricks (what a way to put it) and there were a lot of places where the bricks didn't look right, and the rooms were dirty. We would stay in the newer rooms and it smelled like mildew.

There is a mini fridge and microwave in the room but no coffeemaker or hair dryer to be found. There, they must have thought someone would want them, because they had some available.

No ice makers either. I can deal! I found a great place not to far from town. Good prices, clean, nice big room, with a small kitchenette, that worked! It wasn't a high-rise but there were a few, and they weren't all like this, there were just many others around that were better.

I stayed there a few times and it was really cheap. It wasn't all bad, we lucked out. This place was called The Castle and it had a good view.
