Hotel Alyeska was a beautiful place. The resort was tastefully decorated, with plenty of meeting rooms and large spaces for weddings and other functions. On the second level, there were sitting place where clients can gather together comfortably or to access free WIFI internet since it was not available in the guest rooms. Walking through a corridor franked by souvenir shops and coffee/snack places, one would exit the back to a garden with a round about for the local shuttle bus into the town of Girdwood. From there, one can also take a tram to the top of the mountain where a ski resort and a great restaurant “Seven Glaciers” was located. (I would be reviewing the restaurant separately.)
The room we stayed in was spacious, well serviced and quiet, offering the residents a comfortable stay. The furniture was clean and arranged harmoniously with the room’s existing wall color and carpet, making the room a relaxing place to rest. I really could not find anything detracting us from enjoying our stay in this resort. We also had a chance to walk around the ground around the resort where the horticulture was carefully arranged, providing good photographic spots. The only disappointment was the lack of tourist spots around the resort’s general vicinity. The skiing up the back mountain must be beautiful in winter months, but during the warm months, there was not much to see and do for us. The town of Girdwood was small and lack of any meaningful shopping. There were a few nice restaurants with good reputation, but no much more than that for visitors.
