Overall, a very good experience. The rooms were comfy and clean. The décor was very nice. Some areas looked a little "worn" but that did not matter to us. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Dining choices were a bit limited. Wished that the sushi place would have been open while we were there. The grounds/plantings were fabulous! We especially enjoyed... More

Overall loved the resort. Reception staff at check in were great but at check out was ignored. Other staff were all great. Had an exceptional meal at the 7 Glaciers Restaurant. Room was very clean & comfortable. Our booking included a gondola pass which gave us a great view of the area next morning. Even saw Beluga whales as we... More

The Hotel Alyeska is a great base for your Alaskan Adventure! Ideally situated for summer and winter activities. The skiing at Alyeska Resort is second to none, and the Hotel Alyeska is located at the base of the 60-person Aerial Tram! With well-appointed facilities like a saltwater pool and Jacuzzi, and many amazing restaurants, the Hotel Alyeska will not disappoint.

Overall this hotel is a good choice. The location is great especially if you want to get out of Anchorage and are looking to explore the area south of Anchorage. We went outside of peak season so it wasn't crowded. This is a descent size hotel but I could see how the restaurants could get overwhelmed during peak season. There... More

Enjoyed a three night stay in a mountain view king room in this luxurious Girdwood ski resort. Room was comfortable, and decently sized. Bathroom featured standard tub-shower and toilet in a separate room from the single sink. Mountain views were absolutely stunning, though somewhat weather-dependent. Dinner at the heavily promoted Seven Glaciers was underwhelming (though glacier views outside the tram... More

The Alyeska resort is a real treat! Luxurious, elegant, in a fabulous location! The place is huge, and caters to skiers in winter, hikers and bikers in summer. Fabulous when the weather is good! Do not miss the Seven Glaciers restaurant on the top of the mountain!

A local Alaskan told me this place was closed during the summer but that is not true. I stopped here driving though from Anchorage to Seward and there was a lot of activity going on. There is valet parking as well as free parking in the lot. There is a tram that takes you up the mountain to a couple... More

I spent four days at the Alyeska, and loved the resort. The room was great with mountains view, very clean and comfortable. Even though it is a large hotel, it has very few restaurants, resulting in very rude hostesses. One of the restaurants is the Aurora Bar & Grill. On our first evening there, I went with my daughter and... More

We were part of land tour. Just got off the cruise ship and was embraced by beauty of Alaska. The resort is surrounded by a majestic mountain, wilderness, and floral landscape. Entering the lobby you felt the warm and inviting atmosphere, topped by the huge polar bear display that accentuated the tall ceiling. From our room we could see the... More
