This place was absolutely awesome! We had room 335 and were told that room is the best one there. Without a doubt. The views of the icefield and glacier area from the room, including the bathroom, are unbelievable. The windows are spotless and large so one can take pictures right through the window at sunset, sunrise, etc. with no crowds. I am a scapbooker and our pictures are something else. I found no better pictures in any book, postcard than the ones I took. The water comes directly from the glacier at the hotel and its the best water I ever drank. While there go to the Glacier Inn dining room. The food is fabulous and the waiters - cooks are the BEST!!!!! I had halibut and my husband had steak and scallops. The breakfast is fabulous as well. Everyone there is so nice, friendly and helpful. We are from the USA (Wisconsin) and this was truly a trip of a lifetime. We have travelled extensively and I would put this at the #1 SPOT!!!!
