People visit Juneau, Alaska, for its stunning views and amazing outdoor experiences. As you shop for hotels in Juneau, consider the view out your window. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to take in the beautiful sights while enjoying your stay.
From your hotel window, you might get the opportunity to see some of Juneau’s wildlife. This wildlife might include bald eagles, mountain goats, black bears, porcupines or beavers.

6. Baranof Downtown, BW Signature Collection
Located at 127 N Franklin St, Juneau, AK 99801
This hotel backs up to the beautiful hills and mountains of Juneau. On the front side though, you’ll be immersed in downtown life. Be sure to book a room that matches your style for your stay in Juneau.
While the views out the back are stunning and the old architecture of the hotel will take you to another time, know that the rooms are smaller due to the era when this hotel was built. The older rooms and building may or may not be what you’re hoping for while staying in Juneau.

7. Best Western Grandma’s Feather Bed
Located at 2358 Mendenhall Loop Rd., Juneau, AK 99801
Located in the valley, this hotel is a bit more secluded. You won’t have any mountain views or views of the water from this hotel, but you will be nestled in nature. It’s certainly quaint and charming and offers a very different experience from staying anywhere near downtown.
With only 14 rooms, you’ll want to book your trip well in advance if you hope to stay at this hotel. And because of the bed and breakfast size and service of this hotel, you should also plan to spend a bit more per night to stay here.
Your restaurant options will be fewer than if you stay downtown and you’ll need to be prepared with transportation for sightseeing since you won’t be able to walk to major destinations.
