The employees are 100% about the customers. They are all smiling and helpful. The place is clean, and we love the pool, hot tub and sauna! Great rooms too, even the food is good! At Alyeska there is not anything to complain about. The place is clean and all of the employees

Great food available; uneven service. Breakfast buffet was horrendous - plates cleared when going to get food, no drink refills. Other times we had excellent service in the hotel restaurant upstairs. Scenery & wildlife were awesome - driving distance to Seward for day cruise and

Is the pulley on the hiking trail, open during winter?
I don't think it is. I'd check with the hotel.

The hotel is about 30-45 minutes from airport depending on traffic. It is certainly a more beautiful drive and place to stay. I would encourage you to stay there.

Carrie, I am assuming that you are talking about the Northern Lights and if so, it is possible but rare. I agree with a couple of the folks that responded about driving up the road a bit to get a better view. I think the absolute best place is north of Anchorage. Good luck and I hope that you get to see them because they are truly amazing!!

Is there a shuttle from the airport?
We arrived by train and took a shuttle to the hotel. We left by shuttle to the train station and returned to Anchorage by rail.

"The best rooms are the mid-size.. The luxury rooms are not that much different, so just go with the rooms from 4-8 floor."
"Select the "Deluxe" rooms, and ask for one that faces the mountain, it's worthy it!"
"ask for an upper level room for best view"
"Mountain views and deluxe rooms are the best for me."
"Ask for rooms above 3rd floor if you want quieter areas."
