Is like to start by saying that has been one of my favorite local getaways since it's opened. But sadly it seems to have been neglected. Upon check in- we were put in a room w a view of the roof.

We stayed here for two nights this fall before a work trip in Anchorage. Wonderful hotel and setting. Food was fine, hotel was great, staff friendly, rooms very clean and well appointed. Come in the off season for some great deals. Our room was $100/night in October when the weather was still good for hiking and being outside. Beautiful location...

This hotel was great. Great location, food in the café was pretty good, staff very knowledgeable, friendly and courteous and the views were great. My room was on the side, 4th floor of the hotel and overlooked some trees and landscaping (which was very well maintained).

We stayed in Aleyska Resort for 5 days in March 2015 with the intention of skiing for at least a few days. But 2015 happened to be the year of "no-snow"! Where there should be snow, there was grass! Needless to say we couldn't ski. However, if there was snow, all we needed to do to ski is step out...

This hotel is in the middle of everything you need to see around Anchorage. In a 3 hour radius you can see Denali park, Wildlife center, exit glacier, Eklutna Lake and bunch of other stuff. Also, this hotel is a ski resort in the winter.

Very good location at a ski resort. Only around 30 minutes from Ted Stevens airport through the scenic Seward highway. Wake up call for aurora borealis is a great feature although we didn't see it this time

Location is fine - DONT expect Vail or Aspen here.. It's not like that for ambience and fun at all. However, I was there in late September with no snow and little crowd. So as a skier review I have NO comment (could be great)... Overall my room was on the small side, shower was made for someone under 6'....

This hotel is Alaska at its best. Stationed out in Girdwood, it offers a upscale rustic charm for the grand tourist. In the summer you have the great Alaskan wilderness surrounding you. While in the winter you can ski and snowboard your way down the glistening snow covered hills. There is a 5 star restaurant at the top of the...

This hotel is well kept. We had a handicap room so had extra room & wide door ways, bed was comfortable, pillows ok, clean, quiet and view was roof top but could see up the tram.
