I can only rate the restaurant, as I did not stay at the hotel. The menu is creative and superb. We had the king crab stuffed jalapeno poppers, the trio of oysters, the Alaskan Hunter salad with duck breast, the the chicken stuffed with reindeer sausage and Havarti cheese. I liked that the menu focused on Alaskan ingredients, but was entirely unique from anyplace else we have dined. The view of Prince William Sound from the bar and restaurant itself is worth stopping in for a drink, it is gorgeous. We saw sea otters and bald eagles, and you are perched right on the water. It was nice seeing the boats come in. The service from the waitstaff was sharp, professional, friendly and we never felt rushed as we were lingering over the great food and view. They had a guitarist playing in the bar next door to the dining room and he was great. He played soulful traveling songs and we really enjoyed the background music. The entire dining experience was exceptional. I would recommend dining at the Inn at Whittier for any foodies, or anyone looking for a destination restaurant close to Girdwood and surrounding areas. It would have made a nice drive or ge-away from Anchorage as well. Whittier itself is not much of a destination, but the Inn's location on the harbor is really, really nice.
