We had a nice nature hike from the lodge. The staff are all very nice. Get a massage from Aimee-she was GREAT. The view is out of this world from the top of the mountain- take the lift up.

30+ minutes from the airport, a gorgeous seaside drive takes you to this huge mountain retreat. The town is small, but the resort has everything. It's relaxing with a huge gym and pool, free gondola for summer guests. Nice bakery at the entrance of town has the best chocolate chip cookies in North America...not too sweet. Summertime chairlift will bring... More

We had a good experience when we stayed here. Our room was a good size and there was plenty to see inside and outside of the lodges. We did not have a good experience dining inside the lodge because it was too expensive. Other than that, the location was a bit far away but tr sights were great.

We enjoyed our free ride on the tramway. It is comfortable, silent, and offers great views. At the top are lots of photo taking opportunities, the roundhouse museum and gift shop, and a very expensive restaurant.

A must for photo lovers. Take the chair lift and photograph the best of Alaska snow scenery. Awesome hotel and restaurant but very expensive. Girdwood is a very friendly town with much to photograph and I love walking it.

I resided in the Anchorage area for six years, and on one occasion drove down to ski at the Alyeska Resort; which is located in Girdwood, Alaska, approximately 27 miles from the city of Anchorage. Mount Alyeska is part of the Chugach mountain range and the Alyeska Resort is the largest ski area in the state. Although it can be... More

This would be an excellent rating if it weren't for the occasional avalanches that sometimes erase part of the ski-able terrain. The North Face of the mountain is where the real adrenaline junkies go for their steep fix! Beginners, stay on the Day Lodge side!

Passing by, on our way to a helicopter tour with Alpine Air. We stopped at the resort to have a quick lunch. Very elegant with beautiful views.

The Alyeska Ski Lodge/Hotel is gorgeous and the view from the top of the tram is incredible. People can take the tram up to the top and though this isn't the season to ski, it is still a pleasure to sit in the cafeteria at the top, sipping hot chocolate and imagining what the view would be like in the...
