Just an adventure to get here but we enjoyed our drive by seeing moose right by the road, stopping for a potty break at the beautiful Liberty Falls, and stopping for photos of the bridge and RR trestle. Didn't remember reading that the hotel shuttle was only hourly:( but fortunately we made the 3 pm and rushed to our 3:30 mill tour. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating--took our luggage to room so we could make the tour, allowed luggage to be stored on check-out day so we could do walk on the glacier. The room was wonderful. The dining room staff was amazing and the food was delicious! Sitting in the adirondack chairs on the lawn to enjoy the scenery was an added bonus. A bit pricy but what an experience to be "off the grid" with wonderful accommodations in a beautiful National Park.

Four of us (soccer moms!) were there from June 11-June 14, 2020. We had two rooms in the south wing. The rooms were spacious, clean, and the little front porch with rocking chairs was a great added bonus. The staff were so friendly, professional, helpful, courteous and did their absolute best to make our stay as great as possible. From the drivers, Mary and Mike, to our food servers, Samantha, Alexandra, and Bethany, to Christina (the concierge?) - she helped arrange our tours and went the extra mile to make our arrangements - they all were simply excellent. The food was so good! I was pleasantly surprised! Banana bread french toast, filet mignon, Halibut Olympia, breakfast burritos, amazing PB&J sandwiches, cookies, and the best homemade bread ever! We did sack lunches every day so we could pick them up in the morning (you pick the time) and take them on our hikes. I can't recommend this place enough. It is beautiful and the staff are amazing. Make sure you do a guided tour on the glacier with St. Elias Alpine Guides and take a dip in the blue pool. You won't regret it!

We were looking for something beyond what the typical Alaska tourist does and this was just that. The food was very good and compared to the rest of Alaska it was relatively reasonable especially considering the atmosphere and quality. Kennicott and the Glacier Lodge was the unexpected highlight of our 2-week Alaska Vacation. If you want to get away and are up for a little adventure this is it. Highly recommend!

Great lodging at Kennicott. We stayed in the South Wing of the building. Quiet on the 2nd floor and very roomy. Also enjoyed our private bath. Staff was so accommodating! We needed to leave earlier than the van was normal scheduled to get us on our way the day we were leaving and they made arrangements. Good thing we left early since we had a flat tire waiting for us! The food was good and plentiful. I especially liked the muffins in the morning. We had a sack lunch 2 days and ate lunch in the restaurant 1 day. Don't miss out on the massive home made cookie in the sack lunch. The staff even loaned us bear spray for one of our hikes. Don't miss out on a stay at this lovely place.

Very nice 5 star accommodations in the middle of no where. The beds were comfortable. We chose the full meal plan and the food was very good. The service was great and the scenery is unbelievable. We drove in on the McCarthy Road. It’s really bumpy. We didn’t have any trouble but we really had to watch for pot holes.
