I visited The Alyeska hotel on a reward trip. We have visited Alaska on a cruise two years ago. If you have been on a cruise don't discount a trip to Girdwood. Those two vacations each have something special to remember. The ride from the airport was beautiful. It was midnight an still daylight. I suggest packing an eye cover to sleep in. The check in was very pleasant. All the other reviews that had a good remarks share my thoughts but I have a different insight of the employees. Just as a reminder this hotel is not in the center of modern conveniences. This is usually fine with me. One morning I was getting ready for an excursion and I completely broke one of my back teeth. I knew I had a few hours of being pain free before I would loose my mind. Yes I went into panic mode!!! The concierge lisa told me to sit by the phone and she would see what she could do in this Friday morning. Within minutes she had an appointment at a dentist office and a driver in his way. Just remember, the city is almost 1 hour away. He picked my husband and myself up and went to town. The dentist temporarily fixed my tooth and I had no more pain. Thanks to Lisa I was able to go dog sledding that afternoon. This vacation could have been a memorable disaster but due to a great team member it was wonderful!!
