Famous as a ski resort area, Alyeska is a great destination in the summer. When booking a room July 14th we were offered a summer special rate. Our standard king room was anything but standard. Warm and comfortable room with all the perks, robes, large towels, towel warmer, firm mattress, free WIFI, even Starbucks coffee in the room. We loved the details, etched elevator doors, beautiful lobby, specialty shops, spa and very friendly staff. Several dining options, and a bonus, a tram that takes you to a gourmet restaurant! Just a short 20 minute drive from Anchorage.
