Stayed at the New York on and off during a three week visit. Combining a trip to Wrangell Is. and camping Ketchikan the NY was home. Location is great, located next to historic Creek St., salmon fishing is right out the front door! Yes rooms are small but clean in the main hotel. Room six is quiet. The suites on Creek St. are beautiful and spacious. Service is wonderful; Renee and her staff aim to please. Alaskan hospitality shines at the New York Hotel.
This small hotel has the feel of a bed and breakfast with the amenities of a large chain- and better. The staff is welcoming and very helpful. The spacious rooms have a cozy feel decorated with antique furniture and patchwork quilts. They provided free wireless internet in the rooms as well as an internet accessible computer for all guests to use. The cafe served up some great coffee and wonderful sandwiches, too!
We stayed for a week in a suite, which is located on Creek Street , around the corner from the main hotel. The suites are new and very comfortable, though the bed is in a loft requiring climbing of stairs. The rooms have cable TV and free wireless Internet that works quite well. Creek Street is crowded with people from cruise ships all day visiting the shops there, but magically they disappear back to the ships by 5 pm and so the evenings are quiet and peaceful. The neighborhood is charming and ideal to get a feel for Ketchikan life.
Downtown is within walking distance, so shops and restaurants are easy to get toto. If there is a downside, it is that the hotel has no parking lot so you have to find a place on the street which is not a problem.
Things to do in Ketchikan include a float plane ride to Misty Fjords with Michelle Masden in the Lady Esther DHC-2 Beaver (Island Wings) or a book a fishing trip with Shawn Mitchell, or visit the totem parks at Saxman.
This hotel is as close as Ketchikan gets to a historic hotel. The hotel is charming, but as with many older hotels the rooms are small and the stairs are winding. If you are looking for a historic hotel in Ketchikan near Creek Street, then this is the place.
I stay here everytime I go to Ketchikan-very clean and extremely nice staff. The location is excellent for shopping and a wonderful view. For families, I would recommend a suite, for couples the rooms are private and romantic. I would not recommend staying in the rooms over the resteraunt if you are a early sleeper (before 10 pm) as some of the noise does come up to the rooms.
This hotel ranks with the best of them. One must go up a staircase which made it a bit hard to manage my suitcase by myself but the slight inconvenience can be easily overlooked with it's beautiful charm and grace.
Rooms are very clean and are authentically quaint with beautiful wood furniture, patchwork quilt, pillow shams with a cozy, comfortable feel. All the amenities of a large hotel plus a refrigerator. Wireless in my room which I didn't get at the large, expensive hotel I stayed in two weeks ago, in another city. Staff is eager to please. Location is perfect, right at the entrance to Creek Street. I would stay here over and over again. You won't be disappointed.
