We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this resort. There was not anything that did not meet or exceed our expectations. The snow on the hill wasn't great but how could that be a hotel's fault:) The hill would have been a blast if there had been better snow conditions and the ski hill staff was excellent. We went heli-skliing with... More

On my flight to Alaska to visit my son, I picked up the flight magazine and low and behold, there was a feature story on Alyeska resort. After reading the article, how I would spend my vacation days with my son were no longer a mystery. I booked two nights at Alyeska resort and words cannot completely describe how wonderful... More

The good news: the Hotel Alyeska is lovely. The scenery is outstanding. The ski rental shop is efficient, attentive and reasonably priced. The spa, according to my wife, is excellent. The restaurant on the top of the gondola is 1st class, food and service. There's free wifi and a free shuttle into Girdwood at your beck and call. And if... More

This is a beautiful, expensive hotel and ski area destination less than an hour from downtown Anchorage. As a former Alaskan I can say that the hotel (and the scenic drive to it from Anchorage) is one of the best destinations in the area. Having recently stayed at the Hotel Alyeska for a couple nights in late winter, I can... More

Girdwood valley is tucked among beautiful mountains alongside an ocean inlet. So, you're staying at Alyeska for the gorgeous location. I've said many times to family, friends, and TripAdvisees that Alaska has uneven service. Alyeska, being in Alaska, is no different. Girdwood has plenty of amazing scenery, shockingly good food, friendly (if a bit rough) people, and a mountain tram.... More

This is a great resort! Our room was awesome with a great view of the mountain. The staff was exceptional and unlike some reviews, I thought the front desk staff was overly nice and helpful. We also thought the town and people of Girdwood were very nice.

After the ALASKA CRUISE AND LAND TOUR, HOTEL ALYESKA AT GIRWOOD was located at the foot of the mountain slope, where the tram car is located and free for hotel guest. The GARDEN around the HOTEL especially the granite benches around the fireplace was a very cosy place for friends to chat over coffee.. The HOTEL LOBBY was huge, rooms... More

I stay at the resort a few times a year. I am currently here for Girdwood 20/20 and I am ready to go home. The restaurants are good and the scenery is awesome.
