Any suggestions for a hotel for 1 night that won't be a problem for us getting to the train station the following morning at 5:30? Cost not a factor, but noticed that some hotels don't provide shuttles....and I'm kind of picky Thanks!
For an upcoming trip we are staying at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Anchorage Midtown, 5060 A Street. Their website shows that they offer shuttle service to the Train Depot and the airport. If you have an early flight you might give them a call to see if their shuttle runs that early.
We were booked at the Fairfield Inn Midtown on A Street on 06/03/09. We arrived via the train and called the hotel and asked them to send the shuttle over to pick us up, only to be told that the shuttle does not run to the train depot. I explained that the website stated that they did offer shuttle service to/from the depot and was told that was an error and we would need to get a cab.
Long story short, we got a cab and the driver scammed us by going out of his way to run up the fare! The ride would have been longer except that we knew the general direction of the hotel and questioned why he was going elsewhere (He had a story about non-existend road construction).
The Fairfield does offer airport shuttle service, but not train depot shuttle service as I incorrectly stated in my earlier post . Sorry for posting the wrong info. Hope this helps.
