Whether the mountains are packed with snow, or the summer sun is burning bright into the midnight hour, Alyeska Resort is a year-round mecca for nature lovers. Located an hour from Anchorage in the small resort town of Girwood, it’s the nicest hotel by far for miles, surrounded by old-growth forests, hanging glaciers and spectacular wildlife.

In the winter months, skiers hit the slopes out front and return to earthy décor and cozy mountain-style rooms with heated towel racks and warm bathrobes. By summer -- when daylight lasts up to 20 hours -- hiking and biking trails (for both beginners and the more advanced) wind through the Chugach Mountains outside. For farther expeditions, the friendly concierge staff is happy to plan river rafting, glacier cruises, float plane rides and helicopter tours.

Even those who prefer the indoors will find the setting spectacular, and can pass the time in the saltwater pool, take yoga or get a nature-inspired treatment at the spa. The best views are found at the 2,300-foot-high AAA 4-Diamond Seven Glaciers Restaurant, which offers a special-occasion ambiance and seafood dishes that TripAdvisor users consistently rave about. Reservations are recommended. Get there by riding the scenic aerial tram with views for miles in all directions. The aerial tram is closed Oct. 13 - Nov. 25 and April 18 - May 18. Seven Glaciers restaurant is closed April 18 - May 18.

The resort is rather isolated, and getting to town requires a five-minute drive, but guests can choose from a few other restaurants and bars on site.The resort offers a free shuttle to the town of Girdwood, which is approximately two miles away. Anchorage is approximately 40 miles from the resort.

Other Comments: This clearly is a multi-day destination both summer and winter. We wish we could have stayed longer. The staff was very friendly and the accommodations were the best of all the places we visited while in Alaska.
