Default Vancouver and Anchorage hotels

Has anyone stayed at the following hotels in Anchorage:
1. the Extended Stay Deluxe
2. the Best Western Barrat Inn
3. the Microtel Inn
4. Howard Johnson Plaza

How about the following in Vancouver
1. Ramada Inn and Suites
2. Quality Hotel

If anyone has had experience with any of these, what did you think?

Also, in looking for a hotel in either Vancouver or Anchorage, how do I know what area to look in?

We booked thru Priceline for downtown Vancouver and got the Hyatt and the Sheraton Wall for $70 each. Great locations! I can't wait to go back to Vancouver.

Sorry, but I have not stayed at any of those.

In both cities, the best location is in the downtown area.

>> In Vancouver, check out the Crowne Plaza Georgia Hotel. It's a few blocks from the cruise terminal at Canada Place. Crowne Plaza now offers substantial discounts on "prepaid" rooms (you pay in full at the time of reservation, and there's no refund if you cancel) that make them very competitive with the discount chains.

>> In dwwntown Anchorage, any location on the blocks between Third Street and Seventh Srreet and between, say, B Street and I street will put the whole downtown within easy walking distance. There's a huge cliff created by an earthquate back in the 1960's between Third Street and Second Street, so do NOT go in the direction of Second Street if you decide to go a lock or two outside this area!

CA Cruiser...When did you book on priceline for the motels in Vancouver and for what dates? I'm trying to bid for June 16 (Sat.) and I've bid up to $80.00...Also, what 'star level' did you do? Thanks, Susan

Susan,
This was last year, oops, I guess that would be 2005. The Hyatt was in May, pre-season repositioning cruise, then the Sheraton in September, end of season, bidding 4* only. Good luck.
