This was our favorite hotel in Alaska. In fact, unless you need to be in Anchorage to take the Alaska Railroad or try the beautiful Flat top hike, it's worth the drive from the Anchorage airport to stay here instead of Anchorage (on the way to or from Alaska). It's a large hotel, and it was especially crowded when we...

Valets need to be more accountable and only drive the cars to area where they need to be parked and no further. my car was driven .80 of a mile just to be parked. house keeping needs to step up to the caliber of which the hotel is rated at.

Great way to get #50 off bucket list, early skiing without giving up great Turkey dinner. Early season package was not only affordable but provided a memorable Thanksgiving experience. The only tough part of the trip was seeing the moon at night during the 9AM hour.

We loved the Alyeska Resort....thank you Jimmy S. for suggesting the special room deal for breakfast. We loved the Resort's amenities and decor that made our stay in Alaska really authentic. Beautiful view from the room, the pool was great.

Definitely a **** star hotel. Customer service was top notch. Food was good. (only one restaurant open as we visited during the shoulder season). Great location. Close to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and many other beautiful areas for hiking, photography and sightseeing. The only issue we encountered was they promised "Aurora Borealis wakeup calls" which no one received during...

Wow, we loved the place. My wife and I did a short getaway for 5 nights as we love wildlife and it was excellent. Clean smoke free room, good restaurants and bar. The pool and hot tub were great and the location being tucked in a wooded area in the mountains about 40 minutes outside of Anchorage was perfect. Highly...
