Context: first visit to Alaska, first time VRBOer, traveling without wife and kids (so did not have to stay in usual spousally-mandated $350+ hotel room). Location: central, 10 minutes from airport, walking distance to downtown. ONE BLOCK walk from 1010 to get shuttle to marathon start. You only have to stagger ONE BLOCK from marathon finish line in Delaney Park to 1010. You will have a reserved parking space. Hosts, an attorney and marriage counselor, are exceptionally pleasant, calm and anxious to make sure you are comfortable without being at all overbearing or in your space. Separate entrance so you can come and go as you please. Hosts freely shared glasses of wine and some wonderful home-smoked salmon (best I have ever had and I've had a lot). The suite...larger than the photos indicate...is very clean, fully outfitted with appliances, dishes, cookware, etc. It was really nice to arrive and see that fridge had diet cokes, OJ, water, Brie, butter, jam, etc., also fresh muffins and loaf of fresh bread. Very comfortable, no complaints. I cooked three meals. New Sagaya's City Market is a great grocery store/deli/coffee shop, 2 or 3 blocks away, it has most everything you will need including prepared foods if you would rather eat in but not cook. There is a nice stand up shower but no tub (which I originally "wanted" for dreaded post-run ice bath, but I discovered that you get same recovery if you keep moving for a couple hours afterward). Plenty of DVDs if you need entertainment, helpful books, magazines about Alaska. It was strange to have to pull down window shades to sleep, to block the sunlight at 11 p.m. There is large counter/desktop that is very handy to eat on, spread out papers, etc. Nearby hotels....Clarion, Sheraton, Hilton, Captain Cooks....all may have been nice when they were built in the 70s or 80, but not now. Just run down and the kind of places you would stay only if you had to. So 1010 is a no brainer. Alaska is now one of my favorite states and I would stay again at 1010 if I get to come back.
