Guide to Gay Friendly Hotels Juneau Alaska (2024 Updated)

Search and book Lesbian and Gay friendly hotels Juneau, Alaska.

Lesbiangaybisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the United States have evolved in recent decades. However, LGBT Americans may still face some legal and many social challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents, particularly in states with large conservative populations, such as in the Deep South; in rural areas; and in some Native American tribal nations.

U.S. federal law does not explicitly include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. In June 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and gender identity are included under “sex” as a prohibited ground of employment discrimination in the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in the U.S. state of Alaska may face some legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT Alaskans. Same-sex sexual activity has been legal since 1980, and same-sex couples have been able to marry since October 2014.
Juneau has a long history of being a  gay friendly resort and in downtown we can find a few gay friendly bars as well as Triangle Club or  Squirez Barare the most famous gay friendly places in Juneau, Alaska.
The City and Borough of Juneau, commonly known as Juneau, is the capital city of Alaska. Located in the Gastineau Channel and the Alaskan panhandle, it is a unified municipality and the second-largest city in the United States of America by area.

This was a find in the downtown of Juneau.. Very eclectic.. An actual key to door, leopard skin print terry robe, make your own breakfast, tootsie pop treats on desk.. Very much appreciated from a work traveler sick of chain hotels that look the same…Silverbow was very clean.
The Silverbow Inn is a great place to stay right in the heart of downtown Juneau. Dave was friendly, informative and responded to all of our requests and needs. The kitchenette (shared by all guests) is well-stocked with snacks, excellent waffles and most importantly, great coffee and espresso. The location is superb and centrally located. We had no trouble parking the four days that we were there. Thanks for a great stay and I hope to return someday.

First it is in the heart of downtown Juneau and right next door to an amazing restaurant called Salt. Silverbow consists of a bakery/sandwich shop adjoined to a hotel/wine bar/cafe. We arrived early in the day and Kelly at the front desk stored our bags for us and gave us directions to a good hike and recommended some places to eat. Later in the day we checked in and found out that one of the perks is a free glass of wine each at the wine bar. Our room was on the 3rd floor. Comfortable bed, roomy bathroom and overall a homey feel. There is a jacuzzi available for guest use and bathrobes to wear as well. In the morning there was complimentary breakfast consisting of fresh made bagels, fruit, juice, coffee and more.

If we ever find ourselves in Juneau again, we will definitely stay here.

The attic suite is a priceless garret where the next Great American Novel could easily be written.” Fodor’s Choice! “Breakfast is a highlight, with a variety of seafood dishes.” Frommer’s Alaska 2017 “This scrupulously restored 1906 mansion offers constant surprises in its fascinating detail, rooms are sumptuously and comfortably outfitted, the price range defies categorization.” Rough Guide “One of the more luxurious of Juneau’s B&Bs”

Linda and Mark accepted us as last minute guests and couldn’t have been more hospitable. They anticipated everything we might need, and provided it. The rooms were beautiful and immaculate. We really enjoyed the breakfast at the inn, and also the breakfast Linda packed for us when we had an early tour. The location is excellent, within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. Stay here.

he moment we pulled into the Inn it felt perfect and I don’t even know where t begin. We stayed in Lila’s room, which had a beautiful view of Douglas Island, comfortable king size bed, private large bathroom, and a very large closet to unpack and feel at home.

The Inn is also in walking to the restaurants, shops, museum, and the State Capital Building and so much more. Linda and Mark were so gracious and always willing to go the extra mile for us and all their other guests. Our days began with one of Linda’s gourmet breakfasts, which were, well, spectacular.

Everything was so fresh and mostly organic, which is my cup of tea, or should I say “Coffee” and there was coffee 24/7. There was great conversations with the other guests about what adventures they were planning for the day or what they had done the day before and where they came from.

We also got a lot of history for Juneau, which is extremely interesting. Linda and Mark also had wonderful suggestions if one of our excursions were cancelled due to the Alaska weather. We went on an all day salmon fishing trip and had to leave pretty early and Linda packed us a great breakfast to go!

The views from the room are exceptional, the bed outrageously comfortable, and the tub perfect for a nice hot soak after being out in Juneau’s weather. Each day, the breakfast offered something new and delicious and it was clear that Linda considered what her guests might like (sadly, I don’t eat fish, so I wasn’t able to enjoy the wonderful freshly-caught Alaskan seafood, but Linda made sure there was always another option available for me).

There was so much food, we hardly needed lunch at all! And, during the day, it was common to pass through just in time for some freshly-baked cookies! In addition to the superb food, we enjoyed fine conversation with other guests and Linda and Mark entertained us all with stories and suggestions for what to do. Linda was able to facilitate tours in the area, directed us to great restaurants in town, and helped us organize transport back to the airport at the end of our stay. We had to leave the inn at an absurdly early hour because of the timing of our flight, so Linda set us up with breakfast to go. I’m already starting to wonder when we can make our next trip to Juneau, so we can visit with Linda and Mark again.

3. Frontier Suites Hotel in Juneau 3* – LGBT Friendly Hotels Juneau

Frontier Suites Hotel in Juneau

This hotel in Juneau, Alaska offers classically furnished rooms with free wired internet and a cable TV. It offers a free shuttle to Juneau International Airport, just one-half mile away.

Guests can dine onsite at the Northern Cuisine Restaurant, featuring American-Philippine home cooking. The River Rock Lounge has beer and wine available.

This basic hotel 0.5 miles from Juneau International Airport is also 3.9 miles from the Mendenhall Glacier and 8 miles from Downtown.

Simple, traditional rooms and suites feature free Wi-Fi and TVs with premium channels, plus in-room safes, and kitchens with dishwashers. Some rooms have whirlpool tubs and pull-out sofas.

The hotel provides free parking and airport shuttle service. There’s a restaurant, a gym, a guest-use hunting/fishing freezer and a laundry room.

In the Mendenhall Valley, near the breathtaking Mendenhall Glacier, the beautiful newly renovated Frontier Suites Hotel in Juneau Alaska offers something for everyone — whether traveling for leisure, business or extended stay, our courteous and helpful staff will work to accommodate your needs. We offer a variety of comfortable non-smoking rooms and suites, all with full kitchens, a shuttle to and from the airport, a fitness center, business center & a host of amenities to make your stay unforgettable!

The hotel provides free shuttle service from and to the airport which I took full advantage of. I just called them when I needed it upon arrival. Outside baggage claim you have to cross to the other side to get picked up.

When you walk in the lobby, which is small, you might start thinking the hotel is a bit down. But when you get to your room you will feel a lot better.

Upon entering my room the bathroom was on the immediate right with tub/shower in the back with toilet and sink/counter(nearest door). There were some complimentary shampoo, etc.. There. There was a mounted hair dryer.

Continuing down the hall you come to the kitchen on your right. There is a full refrig on your right. Opposite the refrig is the kitchen sink. In the very back is a conventional oven with 4 electrical burn tops. There is a microwave and a dishwasher in the kitchen as well. I took a cursory look in the cabinets and saw plates, bowls, cutlery, along with pots/pans and associated tools. In essence, you could cook everything you want in it. Great for someone who would want to prepare all his meals instead of eating out all the time.

Past the kitchen you come to the bedroom area. The bedroom area had a two chair table for dinning. There was a countertop with the phone off from the bed. The flat screen(42 inch I would guess) is mounted on the wall in front of the bed.

There are windows all along the exterior side. Three sets of them side by side. The middle one had a sliding window which you could open to air out the room. Good shades you can close if you wanted total darkness..

There was a golding door closet with plenty of hangers in it. I forgot to mention there is a ceiling fan above the bed which was very nice.

The airport and hotel are located about 9 miles from downtown Juneau. There are plenty of restaurants and other things in the area. There is a Dominos Pizza just out the front of the hotel and about 60 yards to the right.

There are a number grocery stores in the area. There is a Safeway about half mile or so from the hotel. I only ate at one restaurant nearby called Mi Casa, Mexican restaurants which was very good. Hence there are plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from if you want to eat out.

Overall, I think this hotel would be a great place to stay especially if you want to be able to prepare your own food. Make a great corporate apartment for business travelers. Also if they had larger rooms for families it would serve a great option.

Wifi was fair at the hotel though it intermittmentingly went out. I quickly solved it by reconnecting to the guest network. When connected the speed was good. I used the free service.

I should mention the hotel offered free breakfast vouchers for limited breakfast which you could use to pay a portion of the more expensive breakfast items if you wanted. I did not take advantage of the breakfast while I was there.

For the room rate they offer it is a great bargain when you have a kitchen with it. I would certainly stay here again if I came back to Juneau.
