I understand that the differences between Alaska and somewhere else
may not be huge in terms of cost. But Alaska as opposed to Hoboken
is huge in terms of perception. As an alternative, I suggest
Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Vancouver offers flights to 22 cities in North America,
13 cities in Asia and 5 cities in Europe,
It also has a large number of hotels from which to choose.
Hope this helps,
