The Hotel Alyeska is an excellent hotel, an unexpected find. Comfortable rooms, a professional and friendly staff and a good restaurant in a well cared for and a refined but truly Alaska hotel are hallmarks of this property. An understated Asian character would seem unusual in this setting but is so well done that it blends right in to the unique area that is Alaska. We wish our stay could have been longer.

Dear Michael W.,

We appreciate your positive feedback about our hotel. We do take pride in catering to our guests’ needs the best way we can. Very astute observation regarding the design. Alyeska was sold to Seibu Group, a Japanese Corporation in 1980. It has since then been sold, but that is why you detected their unique influences. We wish you could have stayed longer too. If you’re traveling to our area again soon, don’t hesitate to call us.

We stayed one night. The room was nice, clean and very functional. It is a large hotel and may be the only hotel option in the area --- book early. We are breakfast at the hotel restaurant --- a buffet with lots of options.

It was awesome Cyrus took my reservation the room was perfect overlooking the mountain. Staff very attentive. Had dinner at the steakhouse on site little pricy but well worth the money. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Rode the tram to the top of the mountain little cold but the view was breathtaking.

This Resort is an older style hotel BUT grand and well kept. A really relaxing and comfortable place to be. Traveling with my Husband and daughter we shared a junior king suite. It was a special Birthday for my husband and on arrival the front desk moved us from level 3 to the top floor. Really spacious room for the 3 of us. Our king was comfy but our daughters sofa bed mattress needed a few extra layers of cushioning. The room thermostat was too warm on the first night and couldn't be altered in room but they fixed the temperature the next morning. Pool and gym were great. Tram was fantastic. Good food at the top. We also hiked higher up the mountain. The views are amazing. The hotel location is fantastic. We took the free shuttle to different restaurants in the area. Double Musky and Jack Sprat both delicious. We hired a car and did day trips to Seward and Whittier to go boat tours, the wildlife conservation park and even did a helicopter tour of the glaciers which I'd highly recommend. Sooo glad we chose here for our base instead of anchorage. It was a brilliant experience and a great location. Staff of the hotel went out of their way to help and were always really friendly. Even the locals were super friendly!!!

It’s been many years since we have stayed at the Hotel Alyeska but we’re glad we came back. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the facilities are magnificent. Rooms are high on comfort with plush bedding and all the amenities you would expect from a top hotel.
