What an experience. We arrived around 5:00 PM as the tourists were departing. It does not get dark until after 10:00 - the experience of going out and viewing the glacier with no one around was amazing. We did not have a glacier view, but had many opportunities to go outside to view. The rooms were very nice, especially the loft. I had read the reviews of the meal options. We did have dinner with meals around 22.00 dollars each. But with an amazing view, who could complain - and the food was great. Actually the hamburgers we had in the cafeteria the next day were interesting (we actually wondered if it was hamburger). The staff was extremely helpful. Would we stay there again? Yes! It was an experience to ge in the middle of nowhere with modern luxuries with amazing scenery. Well worth the $225.00 dollars.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Glacier View Inn is a model of environmentally sensitive design, built to incorporate the pristine environment that it surrounds. There are 32 guest rooms - most have at least two queen beds and a loft. All are well appointed, with satellite TV, and direct dial phones. Many rooms offer spectacular views of surrounding mountains and glaciers but you should make sure to request a room with a view early as these are the first to go. Most rooms are well suited for families needing more space than a conventional hotel room, as well as traditional sized rooms for couples or individuals. Open April through October. ... more less
