Dimond Center Hotel
Ranked #20 of 74 Hotels in Anchorage
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2010

Traveling with 2 young children to Anchorage for the first time and we are very particular about the hotel that we stay.
To start with, this hotel provides pick-ups and drop-offs to the airport and train depot.
Hotel is very central, near Walmart, restaurants, and the shopping mall, and not too far a drive to downtown attraction areas. Located with an excellent view of the Chugach Mountain.
We stayed here for 2 nights. Room was very spacious, updated and clean. Bathroom came with a shower area and a jacuzzi tub. Room curtain was heavy and we had a really good sleep. However, be aware that the windows between the bedroom and the tub does not really provide a lot of privacy. We were in Rm. 321 and my son enjoyed watching the train goes by....not too loud at all. We were never awakened at night by the train so we are not sure if it passes by during the night. There is a coin operated laundry room as well which we did not use.
The deluxe continental B/F was always fresh and well stocked all the time. Pumi was very pleasant, she checked to make sure everyone felt welcomed. She even entertained the kids and thanks for the gifts you gave my kids. They loved and treasure them very much and will always remember you, Pumi.

After reviewing this site and others...We decided to stay at the Diamond Center Hotel for a quick night after arriving at the airport really late to drive to our destination. We book about 2 weeks in advance, locking in a great promotional weekend rate of 150 dollars per night. The cheap motels were about the same price. I think usually it goes for 200 dollars, which would still be a great rate for this hotel.
Front Desk was very quick and knowledgeable, even though this was the guys first night. I read in some other reviews that people got charged double, or deposit was not refunded...I did not have a problem with this.
The rooms are amazing to say the least! Really clean and good layout with a desk, dresser, flat screen tv. The beds are so comfortable, and the BATHROOM TUB!!!!!! Deep tub, with a frosted window into the living area that opens up if you are alone with your wife.
The breakfast in the morning is a good selection of thing for kids or adults. Coffee, juice, different pastries, cereal, and waffle making machine. My kid and I like making our own waffles and added lots of different fresh fruit, and whip cream!
Location was okay. The Hotel is pretty much next to a Mall and Walmart. For the class and decor of this Hotel, it would fit better near the coast, or in the woods, but not in a parking lot. I guess if you want to go shopping after checking in, this would be perfect for you.
Overall, this Hotel gets 2 thumbs up, and recommend this to all family and couples.

I stayed four night over three separate occasions during a two week visit to Alaska. The location is good near shops and some restaurants and not far from most Anchorage points of interest. The room was much larger than average and was clean and had decent furnishings. I liked the large bathroom area, though I didn't use the separate garden tub/jacuzzi. The room was also quiet-something I consider a big plus.

Service personnel overall were helpful, though sometimes tied up with buses full of Japanese tour groups which seemed to choose this location. The free breakfast is no frills and not worth making the effort if you're on the go.

I found Anchorage hotels to be generally overpriced, but considering that fact, the Dimond Center seemed a good value and I would stay there again.

We became aware of the Dimond Center Hotel through the Toursaver Coupon books, and stayed there for the first two nights of our Alaskan vacation. Hotel personnel promptly dispatched a van for our 11:30 pm airport pick-up. The hotel is located on the bus line, so we caught a morning bus downtown to rent a car at a much lower rate than available at the airport. The breakfast included hot foods (waffles, bacon, eggs, sausage, etc.) in addition to the usual breakfast breads. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom situation, with the translucent glass window to the bedroom, was as little awkward, be we managed to work with it without compromising privacy. I have high praise for the staff who found and secured a valuable item that I lost during our stay.

This is a very nice hotel, clean, comfortable, near Dimond Center Mall (fun to go through as long as you're so close). The front desk crew were just super great, special thanks to the General Manager, Sheri Makela. She was so very helpful to us, even arranged to have their van pick us up at Avis car rental in Anchorage ~ way beyond the call of duty. Gave us ideas on where to go while in Anchorage (she suggested the Alaska zoo, which we really enjoyed).

The breakfast served is ample, muffins, yogurt, juice, cereal, toast, etc. No complaints at all ~ we were quite pleased with choosing this hotel, thanks TA!! BTW, use the Northern Lights coupon book for a 2/1 on this hotel ~ very good deal.
