My husband and I along with our 1 year old spent 9 days at the Spring Hill suites in March 2010. We were in Alaska to celebrate our son's first birthday with family and opted for a hotel. It was a very busy week for us and having the hotel was a great way to relax and enjoy some down time. The hotel is set on a lake with miles of walking, jogging, and skiing trails. We borrowed x-country skis and did the loop around the lake every day. The views of the mountains are lovely with little developed to obstruct the mountain views. The pool and hot tub are a nice size and open late as well as early. Although the pool does often fill up with lots of kids, so its not a quiet place to relax, at least in the evening. The work out facilities are great includinig high end treadmills and cardio equipment as well as free weights, which my husband loved.
The hotel staff were very accomadating to everything we needed. There was a fire drill one day and we didn't received notice, so they gave us a gift basket including one free night, which more than compensated for the trouble. The breakfast is also great, with cereal, oatmeal, eggs, and waffles. Although I wish that the breakfast lasted later than 9 am during the week and 9:30 on the weekends (having said that, the staff was flexible and if they saw you coming in they would keep it open).
